Microchipping your dog or cat

From April 6th 2016, it became compulsory to microchip your dog in the UK. We would always advise micro-chipping for all dogs and cats as its a permanent way to ensure that if your pet ever got lost then they would be able to be reunited with their owners. Please have at a look at the links below for more detailed information about why the law has changed and how it affects you.

Due to the new laws, if your dog is found and it does not have a micro-chip then you are liable and may be prosecuted.
