cat microchipping

We're offering a 25% discount on all cat microchipping appointments during May and June.* A microchip is the best chance for a lost cat to be reunited with their owner. We’re delighted that from 10th June 2024, it will be a legal requirement that cats over 20 weeks old are microchipped.

Do I have to microchip my cat?

Yes – if you’re in England. A new legislation has been introduced, and from 10th June 2024 cat owners must have their cats microchipped by the time they’re 20 weeks old. Cat owners who don't get their cat microchipped will be given 21 days and if their cat isn’t chipped, they could face a fine of up to £500. The law hasn’t been updated yet in Wales or Scotland, but cat microchipping is equally important - especially if the cat may travel with the owner at any point.

What is a cat microchip?

A cat microchip is a small device, about the size of a grain of rice, which is inserted under your pet’s skin. The microchip has a unique code which can be read by a scanner. The chip doesn’t store personal information, but the code is kept on a central database - so if your cat or kitten is found and scanned, then it can be traced to you. The vet or rescue that has your cat can use the database to access your details and get in touch with you and you can be reunited.
