Cat Microchipping Deadline: 10th June 2024

May 30, 2024

The UK Government now requires all cats over 20 weeks old in England to be microchipped by 10th June 2024. Alpha Vets urges cat owners in Teddington and beyond to comply with this new law to avoid a potential £500 fine.

Why the Change?

Starting 10th June 2024, all cats in England must be microchipped. Previously optional, this change aims to reduce the number of lost, stolen, or injured cats that are difficult to identify due to removable collars and tags. The new law enhances cat safety and is welcomed by pet owners nationwide.

Microchip Details

The microchip implanted at Alpha Vets includes a unique reference number registered on a DEFRA compliant national database. Ensure your contact details are always up to date for successful reunions with your pet.
