Having your dog microchipped, became law in April 2016, and all puppies must be microchipped by 8 weeks  old.

It is important to keep your dogs microchip records updated, for example if you move address, change your mobile phone number or your landline number. These details enable your dog to be reunited with you, if it was stolen, or got lost on a walk. Many people forget to update and without it you could lose your pet forever.
