About  Dean Scan & Chip

I am based near Lydney in the Forest of Dean Gloucestershire and have been breeding, showing and judging dogs for over 40 years. I decided to go into micro chipping and scanning initially for my own benefit, so that I did not have to stress my bitches when pregnant with un-necessary trips to the vets to be scanned, and to enable me to micro chip my own pups.


I have been trained to implant micro chips by PeddyMark who are  government approved trainers, and have been on a scanning course run by Vet Image Solutions, and am able to provide certificates to show that I have completed my training successfully.

It is not a legal requirement to be trained to use an ultrasound scanning machine, however training does ensure that the operator understands the procedure and is able to provide a competent evaluation.

It is a legal requirement to receive training to become a micro chip implanter.
