Did you know that the rules concerning microchipping changed?
Since 25th October 2019, cats and ferrets, as well as dogs, need to be microchipped and registered at SIAC.
-Dogs, cats, and ferrets born after 25th October 2019, need to be chipped and registered at SIAC by 4 months (120 days) of age. -Dogs born before 1st July 2008, and not yet chipped, have 1 year grace to do so. -Cats and ferrets born before 25th October 2019, and not yet chipped, have 3 years’ grace to do so. -Dogs, cats, and ferrets which are already chipped but not yet registered, have 1 year to register.
The previous databases, SIRA and SICAFE, will cease to exist. They are being taken over by a new database, SIAC. Animals currently registered at SIRA or SICAFE will have their details automatically transferred.
Newly-implanted chips will be registered at SIAC by the vet.
