Do I really need a tags for my dog’s collar?
In the UK, the Control of Dogs Order 1992 states that any dog in a public place must wear a collar with the name and address (including postcode) of the owner engraved or written on it, or on a tag. Your telephone number is optional (but we would recommend this). You can be fined up to £5,000 if your dog does not wear an identification tag.
You do not legally have to put your dogs name on the tag. Unfortunately dog theft is a real danger and if the thief knows the name of your dog this may help them pass on the dog to unsuspecting new owners because the dog responds to its name. We would recommend, you do not put your dogs name on the tag. All pets registered at Charter Vets receive a free emergency pet tag (which you can get engraved).
Vaccinations, worming and flea protection
Just like children we can vaccinated puppies, kittens and rabbits against
many disease. There are also some pesky parasite to be aware of some
of which can cause significant ill health, be involved in allergies and even
be fatal to our pets. We provide comprehensive parasite plans and advice.
Our experienced staff will be pleased to help you through the process and ensure you have the most up to date information available.
