If you have a cat or dog, it's worth thinking about how you’d identify them if they wandered off, was lost or stolen. Collars and tags can help, but there is another way to make sure your pet’s identified: identity chipping or microchipping.

John Brady looks takes a look at the subject in detail.

"An engraved tag on a pet collar can easily be removed, but a microchip, on the other hand, is permanent, and links your pet up to a database so that they can be easily identified and returned to you.”

A nation of animal lovers, the United Kingdom is home to over 16 million dogs and cats and almost half of households have at least one pet.

But owning a pet can be an expensive business. John Brady, Head of Commercial at John Lewis Insurance, answers your questions on the cost of owning a pet.

We all know that our dogs can be clumsy, particularly when they’re excited or nervous.

Others just seem to be in trouble all the time, managing to injure themselves in a park, the garden or in the home.

Their list of the ten most accident-prone dogs may surprise you.
