Newbury Park pet store welcomes microchipping

PUBLISHED: 08:30 10 February 2013

A pet store is “thrilled” the government has acknowledged the importance of microchipping pets.

Pets at Home, Horns Road, Newbury Park, is welcoming the government legislation which will make it compulsory for all dogs to be microchipped by 2016.

The new law, announced by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, states it will be the responsibility of dog owners to ensure their pet is microchipped and there will be fines for non-compliance.

The store has been offering microchipping to its customers since 2012 and sees the service as a fundamental part of caring for pets responsibly.

Store manager Tony Bentick said: “After a long period of discussion, we’re thrilled the government has recognised the importance of microchipping in improving responsible dog ownership.

“The new law will make it easier for police to tackle issues such as dangerous dogs and negligent owners.

“Microchipping is a simple, relatively painless and essential procedure for ensuring the welfare of your pet.

“It’s a fool-proof method of keeping your pet safe.”
