During a visit to the grooming parlour three year old Toby slipped his lead during a toilet break and ran away. His owners were distraught and they spent the next five days frantically searching for him. They put up posters and reported him missing.
Yesterday a kind member of the public brought a dog they had found into our clinic. We scanned him and the welcome beep on the scanner told us he had a microchip. Thanks to this we were able to establish it was Toby!
Toby is now at home again with his owners, but has perhaps made his point that he would prefer to not be groomed again.
Remember that from April 2016 it will be a legal requirement to have your dog microchipped.
