TATTOOING and MICROCHIPING


Tattooing and microchiping are permanent methods of identification for dogs and cats. It is a short procedure. It is performed by means of a special device which applies an identification number into the skin of an animal. Ideally tattooing or microchiping should be performed between 6-8 weeks of age, although it can be performed at any age. In lots of countries it is an obligation for the owner to mark their pet permanently using a method of their choice. Tattooing or microchiping are also a way of prooving ownership of an animal, so can be useful for pet animals too.
