As long as the animal is big enough, virtually any pet can be ﬁtted with an identity microchip - including dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, snakes, parrots, ﬁsh (e.g. Koi carp) and even tortoises! Ask your vet if your pet is suitable.
Identification and traceability is an important part of responsible pet ownership. In addition to your pet wearing a collar tag for identification, having your pet implanted with a microchip has a number of benefits.
It provides permanent identification for your pet and gives them the best chance of being reunited with you should they happen to go missing.
As part of the service provided by BackHome you will get lifelong registration on the UK’s largest database, Petlog, which has an excellent record for rehoming pets. It is also part of the European Pet Network, giving you peace of mind if you travel.
The database is operated 24 hours a day, 365 days a year through one telephone number: 01296 336579 or online through our website.
