Microchipping is the use of RFID’s (Radio Frequency Identification Device) about the size of a grain of rice referred to as microchips. Using a sterile implantation device the microchip is implanted in the soft scruff of the neck. We routinely microchip cats and consider it a safe procedure providing it is performed by a qualified individual. The microchip depicted below is a good indication of its size. Microchips do not at this stage aid in locating your missing cat but are essential in identifying lost cats that turn up at veterinary hospitals and cat shelters. We strongly recommend you get your cat or kitten microchipped.
