Get pet chipped for bargain €25

BLACK­LION HOSPI­TAL REG­IS­TRA­TION

Bray People - - THE NOTEBOOK -

BLACK­LION PET Hospi­tal is of­fer­ing pet own­ers the chance to mi­crochip and have their pet reg­is­tered for €25.

‘ This is lit­er­ally cost price for the vet in the hope of get­ting as many Greystones pets chipped as pos­si­ble.’

If a cat or dog is mi­crochipped they are easy to iden­tify if lost or stolen.

The price of the pro­ce­dure is usu­ally €50.

‘We will reg­is­ter you, your pet and the chip on a Euro­pean data­base at the same time.'

A mi­crochip is about the size of a small grain of rice. Each chip car­ries a unique 15-digit num­ber which can be ‘ read' by a spe­cial scan­ner which all vets, dog pounds and an­i­mal sanc­tu­ar­ies will have.

With ster­ile pre­cau­tions the chip is in­jected un­der the skin at the base of the neck. This only takes an in­stant – for your pet it will feel much the same as hav­ing a vac­ci­na­tion in­jec­tion. For an ap­point­ment call (01) 2875283.
