Petlog Kick-Starts National Microchip Month Activity At BSAVA

28 March 2014    15:00

Petlog, the UK's largest lost and found database for microchipped pets, will launch its new vet packs at the BSAVA congress next week, providing vets with all they need to successfully promote National Microchipping Month in their practices.

Petlog, managed by the Kennel Club, will run its 11th National Microchipping Month in June and encourages all those attending the BSAVA congress from 3-6 April at the ICC/NIA Birmingham to visit its stand (stand 418) at the show to collect their free veterinary pack, which includes posters, flyers and window stickers.

National Microchipping Month takes place in June and aims to educate pet owners about the benefits of microchipping and the importance of keeping contact details up to date.

Celia Walsom, Petlog Executive, said: "National Microchipping Month is a great chance for vets to engage with their clients about microchipping, especially as microchipping for dogs becomes compulsory in Wales in 2015 and England in 2016.

"We communicate with vets from around the country at BSAVA and they are always keen to find out our plans for National Microchipping Month.

"Many vets see a significant increase in the number of pets being microchipped during the month. Around 250,000 pet owners also check their contact details during the month of June - highlighting the importance of the awareness month and the benefits to all pets across the UK."
