Millions of UK cat owners hit by urgent ‘act now’ warning or face £500 fine

A microchip is a tiny, computerized chip that's placed underneath your cat's skin, usually around the shoulder area.

Pet owners could face a fine if they don’t microchip their pets in new rules coming into force in a matter of weeks.

Millions of cat owners could be risking a £500 fine as the Government enforces a new microchip law that comes into effect in June.

From June 10, cats must be microchipped and registered on a database by the time they are 20 weeks old. The numbered device, which shows up whenever an animal is scanned, is placed under the skin, usually around the shoulder area.

Pet owners are urged to microchip their pets from 10 to 12 weeks, costing around £20 to £30 depending on the veterinary practice.
