June is National Microchipping Month, this month aims to help educate and promote the importance of microchipping a pet and keeping their details up to date.
Microchipping is the best way to identify a pet if they are brought into a practice. Unfortunately, many smaller animals such as cats and rabbits are not microchipped.
Vetsure have teamed up with Virbac and their BackHome microchip product, bringing you new materials to help promote the importance of microchipping all pets.
The BackHome microchip is suitable for many species of animal, from dogs, to horses, to snakes. These new materials however are centred around microchipping pets other than dogs.
In 2016 it became law that all dogs and puppies in England, Scotland and Wales, must be microchipped by the age of eight weeks.
As part of the conditions of the dog licence, dogs and puppies in Northern Ireland are already required to be microchipped.

There are so many things that I love about Vetsure which for me sets them apart from other buying groups and insurance companies. Their core values, their ideals of collaboration amongst independent veterinary practices, and most importantly their trustworthiness all lend to an incredible personable business model.

Vetsure are more than ‘just’ a buying group and insurance provider. The icing on the cake to what they offer is a very useful graduate support online training program which provides a structured approach (with templates) to help take a recent graduate safely and steadily through from their first day to full integration into the practice team. Worth joining for that alone!

The Vetsure approach demonstrates a clear understanding of modern veterinary practice from both a business and clinical perspective… I believe that this model will shape the future of pet insurance in the UK.
