Dog microchipping comes to Louth and Mablethorpe

DOG microchipping for just £10 is again coming to the local area as East Lindsey District Council’s roadshow goes on.

Figures released by the Dog’s Trust suggest that the number of stray dogs is at an 11 year high and the council hopes that microchipping will help address the issue.

To date, the council has micro-chipped over 1,200 dogs in the community.

This Wednesday, September 12, the roadshow will be at the Meridian Leisure Centre Car Park in Louth from 11am until 2pm.

And on Friday it will be at Queen’s Park car park in Mablethorpe, 11am until 2pm.

The microchip costs just £10 and is the size of a grain of rice. It contains all the owners contact details and is inserted in the dog’s shoulder blade, causing no discomfort.
