The Department of Livestock is pleased to announce that all pet dogs shall be digitally registered and identified through the use of microchip in collaboration with De-Suung Office, Thimphu Thromde and Dzongkhag Administration, Thimphu for the first time in the country from 11th October to 16th October,2021.
This is in accordance with the The Livestock Act, 2001 of The Kingdom of Bhutan, Chapter IX, Section 20.2, “all the pets must be registered, identified, and vaccinated against rabies or other diseases following the rules prescribed by the Ministry”. Therefore, pet registration and identification are mandatory by Law.
A microchip is a radio frequency device and it is implanted under the skin preferably on the neck fold of pet for identification purpose. It is a modern technology which has unique identification code and ensures permanent identification of each pet dog. The pet details shall be entered in central pet registry database. This is an effort to ensure responsible pet ownership in all pet owners.
A new registration card and microchip shall be issued free of cost during the time of campaign. Any registration and microchipping after the campaign will be charged.
The recent pet dog census revealed there are 7370 pet dogs in Thimphu.
The Department of Livestock solicits full cooperation from all pet owners for achieving intended goal.
All pet owners are requested to bring their pets to the nearest designated registration points as detailed below. Please bring along your Citizenship Identification card/Resident permit/Pet registration card.
