Micro-chipping and identification
Every year more than 300,000 treasured pets go missing. Pets can go missing for a variety of reasons – they become scared and run away during the firework season or a heavy thunderstorm, wander too far from a new house and being naturally inquisitive, can easily become lost whilst investigating different noises or smells.
Having a microchip implanted is quick, simple and very cost effective. It will give you peace of mind if your cat does become lost, you will have more chance of being reunited faster. You also avoid the possibility of your cat being rehomed or kept in a shelter.
Here at Charter Vets all registered cats receive a complimentary Charter pet tag, on which is engraved our telephone number. This means, should anyone find your cat, lost or hurt, they have a 24-hour number to contact us. We will coordinate any emergency treatment necessary and take care of your cat until we can contact you.
