Microchipping for pets in Cambridgeshire

Since 1st April 2016 every dog in England has to be micro-chipped. Compulsory Micro-chipping for cats is coming into force in June 2024.

The microchip is a tiny electronic chip (the size of a grain of rice) which is injected into the scruff of the neck of your pet. The id number of the chip is unique and registered with your details.

It is important to keep details up to date if you move house or change your phone number. To do this you need to contact your microchip provider. If your pet has been micro-chipped for a long time and you are unsure who to contact you can search the micro-chip number on a national database such as


It is also possible to purchase cat flaps and feeding systems which scan micro-chips and only allow your own cat access. This can be really helpful in cat dense areas where other felines may pop in uninvited and help themselves to any food on offer!
