Re: What age to microchip?

My puppy was microchipped when she had her 2nd jab, but this was around 4 months as she was found on the streets so the whole vaccinating process started later than it should have done

Re: What age to microchip?

my youngest was done at 12 week with her second jab, but with her been so small i wish i`d waited as she got a rather nasty lump around the entry site, it didn`t seem to bother her though but i found it a bit of a worry.

Re: What age to microchip?

Jojo is going to be microchipped tomorrow. He is 10 weeks old. Stella couldn't be done until she was older as the vet said she was too small. When she did have it done it bled quite a bit though didn't seem to bother her.

Re: What age to microchip?

I would have thought that puppy stage is the best time to microchip, my vets microchipped mine as puppies at their first visit (vaccinations etc)

It's always good to have these things done early, as even puppies can get lost or stolen, sad but true..

Re: What age to microchip?

but i do suppose it depends on the size of dog you have!!

Mine are huskies, so even as pups they are quite chunky!

Re: What age to microchip?

Well Jojo was 10 weeks on Thursday and has been for his 2nd jab today and was microchipped at the same time.
He cried a little bit but was a really good boy.

No they need to be older. We had to do this the docking papers and the chipping have to be married up its to stop any docking papers being passed on i think.
