Safeguard your dog’s identity with an implanted microchip.
‘Tracer’ is the internationally recognised, microchip identification system for your pet. It can be used in any species; dog, cat, horse and even your parrot. The chip is easily implanted by injection, through a needle; it is permanent, invisible, and tamper proof. Once in place, it provides an identification system for life.
At the time of implantation the microchip details and information about you, your pet and the Practice will be entered into the ‘Petlog’ database, a 24 hour, 365 days a year facility endorsed by the RSPCA and the Kennel Club. If your pet is lost, all vets and animal charities including the GSPCA and GAA on Guernsey or the mainland have scanners that locate the ‘Tracer’ microchip number. This information is sent to ‘Petlog’ who will register your dog on their database and send you the details by rapid return in the post.
This microchip is registered for use in the Pet Travel Scheme, and so if you wish to take your dog or cat abroad, the first requirement of this scheme is to have your dog microchipped.
Our Practice and the animal charities regularly receive stray and injured animals which are rapidly reunited with their owner’s thanks to the microchip system. We are seeing increasing numbers of dog owners using the Tracer microchip as it provides peace of mind.
‘Tracer’ microchip implantation can be done at the time of any routine veterinary examination, vaccination or surgery or by our qualified Veterinary Nurses.
