At Croft Vets in Haslemere, we understand that cats and kittens are not just another pet, they are a cherished part of your family. This is why we are committed to ensuring they receive the best care both from us in clinic, and at home with their families.

As part of owning a pet, their health and well-being should be checked regularly with your local vet to ensure that they are doing well and haven’t got any health concerns. As part of this care, microchipping for cats is vital.

What is Microchipping for Cats

Microchipping for cats is very much the same as for dogs. It is a simple and safe procedure that inserts a microchip underneath the cat’s skin, typically between their shoulder blades. This microchip is roughly the size of a grain of rice and causes them no pain.

Each microchip contains a unique identification number that is registered and assigned to your pet in the national database. Should your cat ever wander away from home, they can then be scanned by any vet or animal shelter and reunited with their rightful owners safely.

Why Is Microchipping Your Cat Important?

Once you have microchipped your cat, this is one of the most effective ways to ensure that they are returned safely to you if they wander too far from home. Unlike a collar or a tag that can be removed or fall off easily, microchips provide a permanent form of identification that can’t be lost or messed with. This means that even if your cat is lost or stolen, they can be found and reunited with you quickly and easily.

This is a small investment that can have positive results for you and your cat or kitten. Book your cat microchipping appointment today with Crofts Vets.

What Does the Law Say About Microchipping Your Cat?

As of 10th June 2024, microchipping your cat will become part of legislation in the UK. This means that every kitten from 8 weeks old will need to be microchipped; should you not have a microchipped cat, you can face legal repercussions, similar, to dog owners who fail to comply with UK law.

Microchipping your cats and kittens is not merely about complying with legalisation, it is about being a responsible pet owner and giving your pet the best chance of coming home should they get lost.

If you have a new kitten or cat that is not yet microchipped, register your cat with us today and book them in for their microchip today.
