Are you as a breeder ready for compulsory microchipping?
As you may be aware, it will soon be law for all dogs in England, Scotland and Wales to be microchipped and registered on a microchip database.
This new law means that all puppies must be microchipped by the age of 8 weeks and before a puppy is handed over to its new keeper.
When purchasing a puppy new keepers are advised to ensure that it is microchipped and registered to the breeder on a microchip database, they will then be responsible for ensuring the registration is transferred to themselves with all the correct contact details.
Breeders must ensure that they are the first registered keeper of all their puppies and where they are a licenced breeder, the details of their Licensing Local Authority and Licence Number must be included.
To help with the process, Anibase (the Pet Database where we register our microchips) have developed a specific breeder section within the website that allows breeders to register with all the required information. Login details will be provided via email which enables quick and easy registration of litters without inputting personal details each time.
To register as a breeder on the Anibase Pet Database simply visit: www.anibase.com/breeder/register
Once registered as a breeder with Anibase there will be no cost for the transfer of keepership to the first registered keeper.
Please contact the surgery on 0115 972 7050 if you would like any further information of the new legislation or indeed to arrange appointments to accommodate the microchipping of litters.
