Compulsory microchipping does not work without compulsory scanning and responsible owners are being let down as we have to rely on a 'Duty of Care' which doesn't work now!
As the owner of rescued dogs I am all too aware of the benefits of microchipping an animal but it has to be a fully thought out procedure.
Presumably there would be some cost involved in vets, rescue centre staff and authorities scanning all dogs that pass through their care but it would be negligible.
