Microchipping pets has become a major focus in Malta in recent years as a proactive solution to pet safety and identification, and it’s a legal requirement that all dogs should be microchipped. All vets offer microchipping services, which involve inserting a small chip, about the size of a grain of rice, under the skin of the pet. The chip carries a unique identification number, which, when scanned, can provide contact details of the pet’s owner.
