What to do if your pet goes missing
If you have found a pet…
Bring the pet to us so that we can scan it for a microchip
Stray dogs are the responsibility of the local Council, so contact the local Dog Warden to arrange collection. See above.
For injured or ill stray cats or dogs, contact your local branch of the RSPCA.
Contact local vets to see if anyone has been looking for a similar looking pet
Ask around your neighbours and consider putting posters up in case it is their pet.
Cats will often wander over a wide area and you may find a friendly, sometimes geriatric cat. Think twice before picking them up as they may be on their way home!
If your pet goes missing
please let us know as we keep a register of lost and found pets at the surgery and we can also put their picture on our popular Facebook page, but there is a lot more that you can do yourself…
If your pet is microchipped, ring the chip company to check they have your up to date contact details and to let them know your pet is missing.
