Microchipping & Services
Is your puppy, adult dog or pet microchipped? Microchipping your pet gives them the best chance of being identified and returned to you if they become lost or stolen.
How does microchipping work? A tiny microchip is harmlessly inserted under your pets skin. This gives the pet their own unique code, this unique code is stored on a computer database along with the owners details. The microchip can be scanned and matched to the owner’s contact details, which are kept on a database, such as the ProtectedPet database. You must make sure the database you are registered with has your up-to-date contact details.
From 6th May 2016, new legislation states that every dog owner must ensure that there puppy or dog is microchipped; with the owners details to be registered on the appropriate database.
If your pet is not microchipped, why not visit us with your pet as we now offer our own microchipping service, with us having 5 trained members of staff onsite, all happy to carry this our for you. For only £10 we can microchip your pet and register you as the owner, all while you wait!
Many pets can be microchipped including cats, dogs, rabbits and even horses. Check with us for advice, as it will depend on the species, size and condition of your animal.
When the Vet visits
At Little Rascals Pets our vet visits on a weekly basis. He undertakes treatment of all of our puppies and adult dogs during his visit and can often take care of new clients’ needs as well, so please don’t hesitate to contact us to make an appointment prior to his visit or email us with your requirements and we can schedule an appointment in the diary on your behalf.
Please note: this normally only takes place weekly on a Thursday or Friday. It is vitally important that you make a call to clarify the day upon which our vet will be visiting if you would like to use his services from our kennels.
All of our puppies and adult dogs are regularly wormed. As part of the information contained within your vet card, which will be given to you with your new puppy, the last date of worming will be included and advise upon the next time your puppy or adult dog will need to be wormed.
We regularly undertake flea treatments as and when necessary for all of our puppies for sale and adult dogs. Please do not hesitate to enquire with us as and when additional flea treatments will be necessary. The information upon which your puppy was last treated by ourselves for fleas and parasites will be included within your veterinary vaccination card and puppy pack details which will be given to you at point of sale.
Our vet undertakes all our vaccinations for both our puppies for sale, puppies which we keep for breeding and our adult mums and dads. You will be provided with a veterinary card signed by our vet which will give you a date when your puppy was first vaccinated and often a date when a second vaccination was received. This in term should be provided to your local vet when you take your puppy for registration at the vet of your choice. Alternatively, you can maintain treatment with us by visiting our vet as and when necessary, subject to appointment.
