At Maldon Vet Clinic it’s always sad to hear of families who have lost beloved fur babies. That’s why we want to ensure ALL pets are microchipped. We also recommend you have an ID tag attached to your pet’s collar, as this can speed up the lost and found process.
Microchipping at Maldon Vet Clinic is a very safe procedure involving the insertion of a chip, approximately the size of a grain of rice, into the back of their neck. With a special scanner, a vet can identify a pet that has been brought into the clinic, and they can be rapidly reunited with their owner.
Making sure microchip details are up to date
Microchip details are no good if the phone number is disconnected or if you’ve moved house! So each time you change your contact details, make sure you update them on the microchip register.
If you know your pet’s microchip number, click here to find out which register their details are on, or visit us today so we can scan your pet’s microchip and point you in the right direction.
If your pet is lost, they can’t phone home. However, if your pet is microchipped (and the details are up to date) then someone else might be able to phone home for them!
Consultations are available by appointment Tues – Fri 9am to 5pm.
Home consultations are also available on Fridays by appointment only.
Our standard consultations are 20 mins.

Ongoing annual health checks are recommended from 1 – 8 years of age. These will often coincide with annual vaccinations.
Senior health checks are recommended every 6 months for pets over 8 years of age.
