Microchipping you pet is a vital part of being a responsible pet owner. At Grove Vets we have first hand knowledge of the devastation which can be caused if pets are microchipped and we strongly urge all pet owners to bring their cat or dog along to Grove Vets to get microchipped.

Microchipping at Grove Vets

Sadly in January we, at Grove Vets have had two cats handed in after road traffic accidents. Unfortunately neither survived – a Grey and white male with a blue collar and a tabby with no collar. Neither cats were microchipped. Sadly this means that it is impossible to track down the owners of these beloved pets.

Microchipping at Grove Vets

This is why microchipping is so important. Inexpensive and almost painless; this involves the implantation of a tiny electronic microchip between your pet’s shoulder-blades. This permanently identifies your pet as belonging to you and helps to ensure the return of hundreds of lost or stolen pets every year to their rightful owners.

Please contact the Grove Vets if you can help us find the owners of these cats or to arrange an appointment where your pet can be microchipped. Call Grove Vets on 028 2565 6023.
