If you’re a dog owner, 2016 marks a change in how you register your pet.
It becomes the law this year for ALL dogs to be microchipped under Government plans announced three years ago.
From April 2016, every dog in England will have to be microchipped by 8 weeks of age in a move which the Government says will help reunite people with lost or stolen pets and track down the owners of vicious or illegal dogs.
So often in practice we struggle to reunite lost dogs (and cats) with their families and microchipping makes all the difference.

Microchipping is done at the surgery by one of our nurses. If you would like to arrange an appointment please contact us on 01327 344999
