After much campaigning and the Scottish Government has committed
to consulting on the introduction of compulsory microchipping of
Previously, Members of the Scottish Parliament (MSPs), including
Cabinet Secretary Richard Lochhead, have joined with the Kennel
Club and the Microchipping Alliance
to promote the benefits of compulsory microchipping and the
importance of keeping database details updated as part of
National Microchipping Month.
The Kennel Club continue to be grateful to MSPs for their help
in highlighting the importance of microchipping and the need to
keep microchip details up to date and are hopeful that with its
continued help and input, microchipping will also be made
compulsory in Scotland, as it will soon be in England and Wales.
