PET SAFETY: Blue Cross pet charity has welcomed the Government’s decision to introduce compulsory microchipping of all dogs and an extension of laws to ensure owners of dogs who attack on private property are prosecuted.

But the charity has warned more still needs to be done to tackle irresponsible dog ownership and prevent attacks from happening in the first place.

Kim Hamilton, Blue Cross chief executive, said: “Blue Cross has campaigned long and hard for microchipping and will be offering free chips to dogs and cats at its animal hospitals and rehoming centres."
