DOG owners can get their pets microchipped for £10 at the Wrexham RSPCA Clinic this month.
The Churchill Drive clinic is holding sessions on Wednesday, May 13, from 10.30am-12.30pm and on Tuesday, May 19, from 2-4pm.
There is no need to book, just turn up during these sessions.
Chipping involves a microchip being implanted between the dog's shoulder blades under the skin with a syringe.
It consists of a tiny computer chip which means it can be detected with a small handheld device. The microchip is the size of a grain of rice, meaning little to no pain is experienced and most dogs do not seem to feel it being implanted.
Cllr David Bithell, lead member for environment and transport, said: “Dog collars and tags can fall off or become damaged, making it very hard to identify your dog if it is missing.”
Microchips are designed to last for the life of a dog and they do not need to be charged or replaced.
