Free microchipping for dogs in Scotland is being offered for the next six months, thanks to a campaign launched by the Dogs Trust on the 15th July 2015.
For a period of six months, anyone wanting to have their dog microchipped free of charge can do so at a number of participating practices across Scotland.
What is a microchip? How does it work?
A microchip is a permanent method of electronic identification. The chip itself is very small and is implanted just under the skin between the shoulder blades at the back of your pet’s neck. Each chip has a unique number that is detected using a microchip scanner. The microchip number is recorded on a database registry with details about the animal and owner. If your pet dog becomes lost a microchip will help increase the chances of you being reunited.
