PENGUINS played a starring role at the launch of this year’s National Microchipping Month, which runs throughout June.
The penguins at London Zoo are one of 726 different types of animals there, with all except the small birds and fish microchipped and registered with Petlog.
Petlog is owned and managed by the Kennel Club, and it created National Microchipping Month to highlight the benefits of microchipping and encourage owners to chip their domestic animals.
“Thousands of pets go missing every year and many are not reunited with their owners as they lack any form of identification,” said a spokesman for Petlog. “However, those microchipped and registered with us can easily be identified and returned to their owners.”
KC spokesman Caroline Kisko said; “The penguins at London Zoo presented a unique opportunity to demonstrate the large range of animals which are able to be chipped. London Zoo obviously has to have a clear way of identifying individual animals, but it is just as important for owners of household pets to do the same in case they go missing.”
So...If you have a Penguin or for that matter any other companion friend please do not hesitate to contact us regarding microchipping!

Meet our three week old Beagle pups quite happy with their very proud Mum!
Speaking at the British Small Animals Veterinary Association’s congress, and reported in this week’s Veterinary Record, Ms Zulch said it also had to be accepted that every puppy is an individual with its own strengths and or weeknesses
Owners should view the practice of raising puppies as educating them, rather than training them.
Puppies spend less than one per cent of their life for six weeks of their life at ‘puppy school’, and there is a risk that owners consider this is enough, said Helen Zulch, a lecturer at the University of Lincoln and consultant at the university’s veterinary behaviour clinic.
Too much emphasis is placed on teaching puppies ‘obedience’ rather than praising good behaviour, a veterinary congress has heard.
