(Neutering not only prevents unwanted pregnancies but also prevents some cancers. Neutering also reduces spraying, straying and fighting in cats and it’s often when fighting, that cats can catch such fatal diseases as Feline Aids through being bitten or biting. It is a myth that an animal should be allowed to have a litter before she is neutered. There is no benefit to the animal whatsoever in having a litter before she is neutered).
Microchipping - Events & New Law
Remember from April 6th it has become a legal requirement to have your dog chipped.
We offer a reduced microchipping service at our Animal Centre in Martlesham. Please ring 0300 999 7321 to make an appointment. It costs £10 for one animal and £15 for two animals. If you get your cat or dog chipped, please please please remember to update the details on the microchip database if you move address or change your contact details in any way.
The New Government Law - If you do not get your dog microchipped or your details registered on an approved database [by 6th April 2016], then it will be considered as not complying with the regulations and a notice may be served. If the [dog] keeper does not microchip their dogs within 21 days of the served notice, then you will be liable to pay a fine of £500.
