Pet Microchipping

Don’t lose your pet

If your pet goes missing, it can mean days or weeks of worry for all involved, and some animals are never found. As a result, Oakfield is now advising all cat and dog owners to consider pet microchipping – a simple and effective means of identifying your pet wherever it goes. The process is both quick and painless, involving the simple insertion of a tiny microchip into loose skin at the back of the animal’s neck.

The microchip contains a unique code, so when your cat or dog is found, a special scanner can be used to detect the microchip and read the code. These details are then fed into a computer and reveal address and contact information which ensures that your pet can be quickly returned to you.

The same microchips also form the basis for the ‘Pet Passport‘.
