VMD Microchip Adverse Event Reporting Form
Legislation related to Animal Health and Welfare is devolved within the UK, therefore there are different regulations for different countries of the UK.
The regulations state that all dogs are microchipped and their details recorded on a database, however there are some exemptions.
This section includes implantation legislation, forms of microchip and procedure guidelines.
Once a microchip has been implanted, the details must be recorded on a database in order to comply with the definition of 'microchipping' included in the regulations.
The regulations in England, Scotland and Wales make it a legal requirement to report adverse reactions/events relating to microchips and microchip failure in dogs.
