Microchip warning issued in Valentine's Day message

Microchip your dog to prevent losing your much loved pet, was the message issued by vets on Valentine’s Day.

To help get the message out, The British Veterinary Association (BVA) created some infographics to show the importance of microchipping and how many vets are unable to reunite lost dogs with owners annually due to a lack of identifier or microchip, or due to out-of-date contact details on the microchip database.

From 6 April microchipping will be compulsory for all dogs in England, Scotland and Wales.

It is already law in Northern Ireland.  The statistics used in these infographics come from BVA’s Autumn 2015 Voice of the Veterinary Profession survey. For more information on microchipping and the incoming legislation please visit
