Hello, my name is ***** ***** I’m a veterinary surgeon in the UK. I will try and help you as best I can.

Narla should already have a microchip, it is required by law that all dogs and puppies have them before they are sold or re-homed. You can take Narla to your local vet practice to have the chip checked and they can advise which company the chip is registered to. You can they apply to the company to change the details to yours (this is also a legal requirement in the UK that the details be up to date and correct).

It will be quicker and easier for you to ask the previous owner to get the chip registration details for you. They will need to confirm that the ownership has changed.

If you don't have a previous vet history for Narla or cannot get one from the previous owner then register Narla with your nearest vet practice and they will give book an appointment to give Narla a full physical examination and discuss all the necessary preventative treatments they recommend (eg vaccines, spay, flea worm and tick treatment)

A full physical examination will reveal if there any pre-existing problems you need to now about as well like retained baby teeth.

Expert:  Susan MRCVS replied 16 days ago.

Most vet practices are by appointment only although a few offer walk-in appointments. Are you registered with a vet already with another pet?
