Compulsory micro chipping comes in force soon but you can get one free at dogs trust rather than pay £25 (at our local vets this was the price)

Thanks, our new arrival on Sunday will enjoy this offer, or may be not

Better still, rehome one of their dogs while you're there.

Cats??

Do your research before getting your dog microchipped. Compulsory or not, it is not in the dog's best interests to be chipped. There is concern that these chips can cause cancer.

What's wrong with a collar and tag? Much easier to return a dog if you can read its tag.

Before you put people off using a regulated, tested and authorised treatment, it is better to ensure your facts come from a series of clinical trials and not from a meta-study conducted by a Doctor of Education who campaigns against this issue.
Dogs get stolen, lost and involved in accidents, a collar and tag is wise but can become detached (or removed) from the animal, leaving owners and pets stressed. Equally a chipped dog can be traced to it's owner if it is behaving in an anti-social way, enabling agencies to prosecute the owner.

I completely agree and I think that the case for chips causing cancer in dogs is a very weak argument (at least it is on the chipmenot website - dated evidence, inconclusive reporting from questionable sources and 4 case studies?).

What utter rubbish!! Nothing scientific has been proved so far. Is that a case to say I don't want my dog to be chipped so I won't have to take responsibility for its actions???

Seems everyone causes cancer these days.

Heat added, we got our little one microchipped by dogs trust and got vouchers for health check up and free neutering.

Rubbish, it hasn't been proven, far from it. Stop scaremongering!

Should make this compulsory on convicted criminals and ASBO yobs too? Would make the police's job much easier.

Will they do the wife?

Not if she already has one on her shoulder.

Seriously? So you have read that a chip can cause cancer but you haven't read about dog theft/baiting/fighting? A collar can be removed in a split second. Read a newspaper maybe. Chips help return lost pets every single day. They aren't a replacement to a collar. It's an additional safeguard.

My Staffie is now 14 but many years ago we were advised against having her chipped. Apparently cruel dog thieves were digging the chip out of the back of the neck to stop stolen dogs being identified. I decided to exercise the same level of care over my dog as my child....or are they going to have to be microchipped too now?
