Royston pet-owners are being encouraged to lead the way by ensuring their cats and dogs are micro chipped.
The town’s branch of Pets Corner are holding a micro chipping day from 10.30am on Sunday at Country Homes and Gardens in Shepreth.
Royston Pets Corner manager, Abby Young, said: “We feel that it is important for pets to be micro chipped, for safety and identification purposes. “Not only that but if you have a pesky neighbourhood cat that terrorises your pet or comes into your home, having your cat micro chipped and using a complementary cat flap, will mean that no other kitties can enter your home.
Lucy Ross, head of training at Pets Corner, said: “From April 2016, it will be a legal requirement for all dogs and cats in the UK to be micro chipped.
“Micro chipping is an efficient and irreversible means of identification that can be carried out by our qualified staff in store or by your veterinary practice. A tiny microchip is injected under the skin at the back of the neck, in a simple and quick procedure.”
