    Pet trade licensing is getting quite interesting. Up to October last year, the UK operated under the Pet Animals Act 1951, but now England and Wales have different legislation from what we have in Scotland.
    In Scotland, the Scottish Government is consulting on the way forward and looking at the breeding of dogs, cats and rabbits. Why rabbits, I’m not sure. Why not include guinea pigs, hamsters and gerbils? Why ignore budgies and canaries? Whatever the outcome, Scotland will have a different licensing regime to England and Wales, and this poses challenges for our trade associations as the advice they give will have to reflect which part of the UK we are in.
