Microchipping your dog

Dog owners in Redbridge are now legally required to ensure that their dog is:

  1. microchipped
  2. registered to an approved database by the time it is 8 weeks old

If you don't you could be fined up to £500.

Microchipping is a simple and painless procedure that involves putting a special chip the size of a grain of rice into your dog's neck, so it can be identified if it strays or is stolen.

We do not provide a microchipping service for dogs or any other animal including cats, reptiles, rodents and birds.  If you want those microchipped you will need to contact a vet.
