DOG and cat owners in Salisbury can go along to a microchipping event at a city pet shop at the weekend.

Pets at Home, Southampton Road, is holding an awareness weekend about the importance of microchipping pets, and will be offering microchipping for the special rate of £10 rather than the usual £15.

Micropchipping will become compulsory by law in 2016.

The event will run all day Saturday and Sunday.
