Home Visits - Microchipping
All microchips used by us are registered with petlog
Microchipping is a great way to identify your pet if they go missing. The chip itself is the size of a grain of rice and can be detected and read by a scanner in seconds which can then link the pet with its owners details for a quicker reunion. The chip is simply inserted under the skin with a needle, the process takes just a matter of seconds and is relatively pain free.
We use the standard pet-detect® chips that can be read by all scanners. Petlog is the official UK database and is run by the UK Kennel Club.
They have one 24/7 telephone number - 0870 6066 751. All pet-detect® chips are registered with Petlog.
Primo Pet Services offers a microchipping service in your own home. This is a great option for pets that are scared of the vets, are too young to be going outside or just for your convenience. A qualified microchipper will talk through the process and answer any questions before inserting the chip. Once the chip is in, it will remain with the pet for life. Details can be easily updated by calling petlog.
Animals should be at least 8 weeks old. The animal must be clean, well behaved, healthy and non aggressive to strangers in general. If you are unconfident about restraining your pet efficiently please ask for the microchipper to bring an assistant along in advance. Primo Pet Services does not chip horses, reptiles or birds (please contact your vet for this service). Our microchippers are fully qualified and experienced with the procedure.
We travel to other parts of north and east london for a small additional fee.
