Zushi City Obligation to attach microchips to dogs and cats | Shonan people

About pet microchipping

On the Zushi City website, there was an article titled “Regarding mandatory microchipping for dogs and cats”.

From June 1, 2020, it has become mandatory to install microchips on dogs and cats sold at breeders and pet shops.

It is the responsibility of the owner to attach a microchip to the dog or cat that has been transferred. If the chip is attached, it is recommended to attach it because it has the advantage of increasing the possibility of returning to the owner.

If you become the owner of a dog or cat with a microchip, you need to change the information to the owner’s own information at the designated registration agency.

Q&A is also listed on the website of the Ministry of the Environment, so please check it. It may be useful when you get lost unexpectedly or in the event of a disaster.
