Mini Microchips are available to identify animals and register them on the national database. This procedure should not be undertaken by anyone who has not had appropriate training from their veterinary surgeon or other suitably qualified person. Mini Microchips are just 8mm long and 1.4mm wide. They are easier to insert into the animal and can be implanted safely in smaller animals than the standard microchips. (An individual-use implanter is supplied with each chip.) Functionally they are equivalent to larger chips and can be used to register on the Petlog national database to help locate lost animals. They are also approved by DEFRA for use in identifying animals on the CITES register, such as tortoises and rare parrots. Happy-Pet Mini Microchips are also suitable to identify dogs, cats and ferrets on Pet Passports for the Pet Travel Scheme.

Veterinary authorisation required to purchase this product - see below.

Our microchip scanner is available separately to read all standard microchips and is very compact too. With this scanner you can check the location and identification number of your pets microchip. This is useful to confirm the identity of any chipped animal (before purchase for example). For peace of mind you can also confirm that your pets microchip is working before arriving at a customs check when traveling between countries on the Pet Travel Scheme.

Please note that VioVet regards microchips as the equivalent of a prescription-only product. We require a letter from your veterinary surgeon stating that you "have been trained and are considered competent to implant microchips" before we will send them to you. This letter can be emailed or faxed to us and we will telephone your vet to verify its authenticity.

Delivery of aerosols

Due to air freight restrictions aerosols cannot ever be sent abroad by Royal Mail. We appreciate your understanding.

Delivery of temperature controlled items

Some products, such as insulin and frozen food, need to be delivered in insulated packaging to prevent them from getting too warm (or too cold) during transit from us to you. Purchasing any of these items in your order will result in a £1.99 charge being added to the total to cover the high cost of the insulated packaging materials. You only pay the £1.99 once per order, regardless of how many temperature controlled items you purchase in that order.
