Compulsory Microchipping For Dogs In The UK

Since 6th April 2016 new government legislation means that in the UK, it is a legal requirement to have your dog microchipped if they are 8 weeks or older.

If your dog is not yet microchipped, please make an appointment at your nearest surgery to have a chip implanted for £20.00

If your dog is already microchipped, you should make sure your contact details are up to date on the appropriate database (you will need your pet’s microchip number).


Nearly 1000 pets go missing every day in the UK, don't let your pet be one of them!
