The next free microchipping sessions are in Ventnor on Saturday from 10am until 1pm at Victoria Street Spar car park, and on Sunday in Sandown's Fort Street car park from midday until 3pm.

Further sessions will be held on Saturday, March 15, from 10am until 1pm at Avenue Road car park, Freshwater, and on Sunday, March 16, from midday until 3pm, at Vectis Road, East Cowes.

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

The RSPCA DO IT FOR £12 at Rookley.
But the chipping being done is done with petlog and dogs trust, and on the day they take donations, and im sure people do donate

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.
