The deadline for getting dogs microchipped has arrived. All dogs in England must now be identichipped by law or face a £500 fine.

Thank you to Bradley from Amesbury Wiltshire for this image of his dog with its microchip installed!

As you can see from our Facebook page; we get a significant number of stray animals brought to us without a microchip – this makes it very difficult to trace an owner.

We also sadly see a lot of stray animals brought to us that are microchipped, but unfortunately the details are now out-of-date. If the owner has moved house and changed phone number, we have no way of tracking them down.

Cats should also be microchipped

Although not a law to have cats identichipped, we do advise cats are microchipped especially at this time of the year when male cats are more likely to roam in the spring.

Amazing staff friendly and professional service. Put me at ease.
Recommend this surgery to anyone!

Well done Jo!

Well done Jo we are all very proud of you on being a Nominee in Petplan Veterinary Awards 2018

The staff in Avon Lodge Salisbury are wonderful. They helped us through a very difficult time with letting go of our 10 year old bunny who became poorly very quickly.

The sympathy card with the forget me not flower seeds is such a lovely and caring thought.
