We all know that dogs love to run and explore, but unfortunately they sometimes lose their orientation or, if scared by something, may run off and get lost.

From April 2016, it became compulsory for all dog owners in England to have their dog microchipped and to ensure their dog’s details and owner contact information are recorded on a reunification database. Cats love the sanctuary of a warm home but while outside exploring, some may get startled and run off or may roam too far and get lost trying to get back home.

You can also ask your vet or local council if they can microchip your dog. Your dog’s microchip is given a number, which will show up whenever your dog is scanned.

Once your pet has been Micro Chipped it is vital that you keep your contact details up to date.

This is most important when you change address or take on a pet as a new keeper.
