Dog and cat owners in Giltbrook are being encouraged to attend an event to microchip their pets this weekend.

To be held at Pets at Home Giltbrook, owners can bring their cat or dog in store any time this Saturday or Sunday, October 26 and 27, to get their pet microchipped for the special rate of just £10, instead of £15.

Microchipping is the most effective way of increasing the chances of a missing pet being returned safely to its owner, said a spokesman.

The chip is roughly the size of a grain of rice, fits under the pet’s skin and contains information about its owner.
