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.

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.

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.

The Vetsure Team members are an absolute joy to work with, and have become true friends as much as knowledgeable, ethical and inspirational business colleagues.

Cheesy but true, I love that I can email a query over and it is dealt with straight away (or as soon as the office is open if I have emailed over the weekend). Everyone I speak to (and email) is so cheerful – just a pleasure to deal with – this certainly makes you stand head and shoulders above the rest.
