Microchipping your cat is a very sensible idea if you want vets, local authority animal welfare services and animal welfare charities to be able to identify your cat in the event that either you, or it, gets lost. On average getting your cat microchipped will cost £20-30 and then the only other costs are a small fee to update your details if you decide to move house or change your name. So it’s a total no brainer.
- Microchipping is the most effective way of identifying lost pets.
- Microchips are permanent and can’t be removed by your average stranger like a collar can.
- Microchips are also safer that a collar which can result in various CRI’s (Collar Related Injuries)
- A Microchip can also help in cases of disputed ownership although it does not constitute complete unequivocal proof.
