Recently, I came across a classified advertisement asking the owner of a cat that had been found to contact the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA).
The ad further stated that the cat had a microchip.
One would have thought the microchip would have provided the AVA with the owner's details.
Can the AVA explain what information is contained on a pet's microchip, and why it is not contacting the owners of pets found with microchips?
