Why else is microchipping useful?
Apart from it being a legal requirement, there are several good reasons to have your dog microchipped.
Microchipping is a simple way to find your dog – 60,000 dogs wander off or are stolen every year, according to The Kennel Club.
It can save local authorities around £33 million a year in kennel costs – by increasing the chances of matching up lost dogs with their owners.
And last, but not least, it’s important for your pet insurance. In fact, not having your dog microchipped may invalidate your pet insurance policy.
