Dog micro chipping sessions come to Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge

Dogs in Burnham have a chance to get micro-chipped in JuneSedgemoor's Dog Wardens are offering a cut-price micro chipping service to help protect dogs in Burnham and Highbridge.

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 June.

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

Many dogs and cats are lost or stolen and this can be very distressing for pet owners. Of the many thousand 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 dog.

DOG CHIPPING SESSIONS SCHEDULE

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

Manor Gardens, Burnham-on-Sea
Tuesday June 7:
11.00 - 12.00 hrs

Apex Park, Highbridge
Thursday June 9:
14.00 - 15.00 hrs
