New microchipping laws

Dogs playing with tennis ballProtect Your Pets - Animal Welfare Network Wales (RSPCA, Dogs Trust Wales, Cats Protection and PDSA)

In 2015 the Welsh Government introduced a new law making it an offence to keep a dog in Wales without a valid microchip. 

All puppies must now be microchipped by the breeder before they are sold/transferred to a new owner.

As a responsible pet owner, it will be up to you to ensure that the microchip register is updated if you move house or transfer ownership of your pet and fines are likely to be imposed if you don't.  

We have ammended our Pets Policy to reflect this new law. So, if you haven’t had your dog microchipped yet, you need to make an appointment with your local vet to ensure all records are up to date. 

If you have an unneutered cat or dog you can also save yourself the worry of having to find homes for any unwanted litters by arranging to get your pet booked in for neutering at the same time.
