Do I Need to Microchip My Dog?
Yes, legally you need to microchip your dog. Since 2016 by law, all dogs including newborn pups, must be microchipped, registered and certified. Owners who refuse to microchip their dogs could face a fine of up to €5000.
What is a Microchip for a Dog?
The microchip is about the size of a grain of rice. It has a unique number which can be read by a scanner.
No anaesthetic is required when inserting the microchip. It is injected through a sterile needle under your pet’s skin, usually between the shoulder blades. The procedure is quick & painless, causing no more discomfort than a standard vaccination.
This unique number and your contact details are then registered by us on an approved national database. This ensures that once your lost pet is found and scanned you can be contacted and reunited.
