October dog micro chipping sessions for Burnham and Highbridge

Dogs in Burnham have a chance to get micro-chipped Sedgemoor's Dog Wardens are offering dog owners in Burnham and Highbridge another chance to have their pets micro chipped.

Micro chipping is now recognised as the most effective and secure way of permanently identifying a pet.

Usual fees are between £20 and £30, but Sedgemoor District Council is offering the service at a cost of £12 per dog at two special sessions in October. It follows the success of a similar session held in June this year.

Many dogs and cats are lost or stolen and this can be distressing for pet owners. Of the many thousands of dogs that go missing each year, it is estimated that less than half are reunited with their owners.

If Sedgemoor's Dog Wardens find a lost dog and it is found with a micro chip, they can contact the national database to find the owner's details. The owner is then contacted and reunited with their pet.


Sedgemoor's Dog Wardens will be micro chipping at the following two destinations in Burnham and Highbridge during October 2005:

Manor Gardens, Burnham-On-Sea
Mon Oct 3rd: 11.00 - 12.00hrs

Apex Park, Highbridge
Wed, Oct 5th: 13.00 - 14.00hrs
