Fitting a microchip
You can get your pet fitted with a microchip at any time, but remember it must be done before it is vaccinated against rabies and then blood tested. (There is an exception to this rule for pets resident in certain countries). Your vet should read the microchip number in your pet and record it on your pet’s vaccination record at the time of vaccination. Make sure that the microchip number is also correctly recorded on the EU pet passport or third country official veterinary certificate at the time of issue.

The microchip should be inserted according to the manufacturer's instructions (and any national rules that may apply). To ensure that the microchip works, its number should be read before and after it has been fitted.

Get your vet to read the microchip every time you visit.

Microchipping offers cats a safe and permanent method of identification and increases the chances of a lost feline and canine being safely reunited with its owner.

Microchipping is the most effective way of identifying a lost pet (chips don't come off or put the cat at risk of injury like collars can)
Each microchip has a unique number, which is stored on a national database. A scan of the chip reveals the owner's name and address from the database's records

A microchip is slightly smaller than a grain of rice and is inserted under the cat's skin between the shoulder blades

The procedure is very simple and is no more painful than an injection. A pet will not be aware of the microchip's presence once inserted
Remember you should change your microchip details if you move house.
