Campaign for compulsory microchipping gathers pace

An Early Day Motion (EDM) is gaining signatures from across all political parties as MPs show their support for a compulsory microchipping scheme. Reports say the scheme would have a significant and positive welfare impact on dogs by assisting in the return of stray and stolen dogs to their owners, improving traceability of puppy-farmed dogs  an providing a lifetime of security for a one-off payment. 
Earlier this week Welsh Rural Affairs Minister, Elin Jones AM, announced proposals for the compulsory microchipping of all dogs and puppies sold or homed by licensed breeders, to improve traceability.
