Pet micro chipping month
18/06/2012 Scottish Parliament members add their support
Members of the Scottish Parliament are hoping to highlight members of the public to the importance of micro chipping their pets.
They also would like to re iterate the importance of keeping the database that stores the information up to date and have added their support to the Microchipping Alliance’s campaign during June’s National Micro chipping month.
The aim of the campaign is to promote the inexpensive and painless method of pet identification. The MSP Dennis Robertson said "A large part of being a responsible owner is to ensure that your pets are microchipped, registered to a database and that all details are up to date. As a nation of animal lovers, we all want a quick and successful reunification should our pets go missing, which fundamentally relies on these three components.
"Our counterparts in Northern Ireland have taken the first steps by introducing compulsory microchipping, which will significantly help reunite stray and stolen dogs with their owners while helping save local authorities tremendous financial resources. I firmly support proposals for the implementation of compulsory microchipping in Scotland throughout the rest of the UK for the benefit of all.”
