It is a legal requirement to have all dogs in the UK microchipped. This involves having a chip containing a 15-digit number inserted into the scruff of the neck.

This is simple to do and can be done during a nurse consult.
Microchipping will also become a legal requirement for cats in the UK in the next few years, so it is best to get it done ASAP.
