The practice is compulsory in the U.K., and is generally highly recommended elsewhere in the world as well. This visual guide outlines the precautions you can take to keep your pet safe, and explains how microchipping can help to save your pet’s life should they be stolen or go missing. It also lists some of the other animals eligible for microchipping, and provides some information on how microchipping works. It also provides some details on how much the procedure usually costs, and at what age it is best to microchip an animal. In addition, it states the importance of keeping up-to-date microchip information, including addresses and other contact details.
