National Microchipping Month is a national campaign to encourage identification of our pets through use of a microchip. All this month, to support the campaign, we’re offering microchipping for the special price of £10.00. Just contact the surgery on 01295 712110 to make an appointment.
We’re also running the same special offer microchipping clinics in-store at the Banbury branch of Pets at Home. We’ll be there on Thursday 17th June, 10am-12.30pm and also on Saturday 26th June, 1.30pm – 4.30pm.
John Taylor, vet and proprietor at Mansion Hill Veterinary Practice agrees that Microchips are invaluable for safeguarding our animals. “A good first defence for our pets is to fit an identification tag to the collar, but there’s always the risk these can be removed or may fall off. A microchip lasts a lifetime and is one of the only ways to permanently identify your animal,” he explains.
“With so many stray cats and dogs handed into the surgery every month, we are ardent supporter of microchipping,” continues John. “Microchipped animals are generally reunited with their owners in hours. Without identification, this process can take many days.”
