Chips Are Good For Pets

Pet owners across Worcestershire are being urged to make sure their cat’s and dog’s microchip details are up to date.

As part of National Microchipping month, which runs throughout June, Worcestershire Regulatory Services have launched a campaign to raise awareness so responsible owners can keep their furry friends safe.

Microchipping provides a permanent and reliable method of identifying pets. Unlike collars and tags, which can be lost or damaged, a microchip remains with your pet throughout their life.

WRS Animal welfare officer Pip Griffin said: “Micro-chipping matters as it increases the chances that we can reunite pets with their owners. It is also important to make sure the details on the chip are up to date.

“Please remember it is the law to microchip your dog and from this month, to ensure cats are chipped too. Your vet can help you fit a chip and update the details too”
