Dog Microchipping

All dogs require to be microchipped by law. It is quick, simple and painless. It is in addition to having a collar and tag with the owners details on it which is also the law. These measures are designed to help protect dogs by allowing the owners to be quickly identified and contacted should they stray.

Most vets will microchip your dog at minimal cost and the Dogs Trust may carry it out for free.

If you need advice on microchipping or straying dogs, please contact us using the details below.

A straying dog costs the Council a lot of money to deal with and will cost the owner a significant sum to get back. Please refer to Stirling Council's Bandeath Dog Shelter web page for reclaim costs.
