Compulsory Cat Microchipping

In early 2021 the government announced that all cats will need to have a microchip implanted and be recorded on an approved database.

By making your clients aware now you can help manage demand - and avoid the inevitable surge of last minute appointments; encouraging pet owners to get their cats chipped during routine appointments over the coming months will help both client and practice. You can drive client awareness of this change in legislation on your social media and other channels - Elanco have produced a series of digital materials available here on MyElanco to help you. Log in here to access them.

We have prepared a selection of items including :

  • Short video clips with text for your social media channels
  • Graphics, available in two sizes to use on your website, social channels, newsletters or emails
  • Newsletter text
  • Waiting Room Digiscreen Video
