chip for cats

2 Replies



Legislation in Luxembourg requires that dogs and horses (for the horses: new since January 2010) must be chipped even if they never leave the country. Does anybody happen to know if the chip is also mandatory for cats staying in Luxembourg all the time? I looked for the information on the AI Info pages but I could only find the legislation concerning pets moving to or out Luxembourg.

Cats staying in Luxembourg don't need to be microchipped. This is a matter currently discussed and the likely outcome is that chipping will be mandatory in the near future. But so far, it is not required and no decision has been made.
That's the legal aspect. Practically, animal associations and vets are often recommending voluntary microchipping as it makes searches easier when an animal is found.
