Microchipping is a safe, practical way of identifying your pet. It the best way to ensure you are reunited with your pet if it is lost or stolen as while collars and pet tags are useful, they can be lost or removed.
Your pet’s microchip is inserted under the skin in the neck area and has a unique 15 digit number which is registered on a Government approved database with your contact details. This information can be accessed by a veterinary practitioner or welfare organisation if your pet has been found.
Microchipping of Dogs Regulations 2015
From March 31st 2016 all dogs will be required to be microchipped by law and the microchip details registered with a Government approved Database. All dog owners will be required to have a compliance certificate from an approved Database with the registered details. For more information on these changes read our blog about the new law.
If your dog is already microchipped, you do not need to re-chip them. You can log on to Fido’s Chip Check website where you can check your pet’s registered details and once you have done this, Fido will issue you with your compliance certificate.
From 1st September 2015, all pups must be chipped, registered and certified by the time they reach the age of 12 weeks or before they leave the property on which they were born. Also, from the 1st September 2015, it will be illegal to sell, supply, buy or take ownership of a pup that does not have a certificate of microchip registration from an approved Database. For more information on these changes read our blog.
The Registration Process
Changes have also been made to the microchip registration process. When microchipping your dog, you will be asked to bring proof of identity such as drivers licence and proof of address such as an utility bill. The microchip details will then be registered by your veterinary practitioner and your compliance certificate will be issued to you.
It is very important to ensure that if your pet is already microchipped, your contact details are up to date. We offer a free microchip check. Contact us for more details.
