Either way it is free now (for a short period of time). I would take full advantage of it!

Do you know how much the microchips cost? £30 for 10, including the insertion tool. The insertion procedure takes, what? 2 minutes including the paperwork?

@ James Blackadder. I am not a dog or a cat hater....I have both! Both micro-chipped...paid for by myself. I'm just pointing out that with all the cuts happening and job cuts, can the council really justify this freebie?

What a waste of tax-payers money! If dog owners want their pooches micro-chipped, get yourselves down to the local vets and fork out for it yourselves......costs about £30. Why should I pay for it?!!!!!

We had our dog done when it was in Ryde the last time, we felt is was a good thing to do and donated £10 the best money we have spent.

A very good idea for all dog owners. Being a free service I would back this and recommend it.
