No plans for Island to micro-chip dogs

Fri, 08 Apr 2016


There are no plans yet to make micro-chipping on the Island compulsory - despite the rest of the British Isles making the change.

South Douglas MHK Kate Beecroft has been chairing a Tynwald committee on animal welfare which is supportive of the issue.
