Your dog or cat has died - what do you need to do?

If your cat or dog has died, you must notify your local council within 28 days (or 24 hours in the case of a restricted dog, dangerous or menacing dog) of its death.

Notification may be by telephone or in writing by email or letter to your local council. In the case of a restricted or declared dangerous dog council may require you to provide documentary evidence from a veterinary practitioner that your dog has died.
