49. The operator of premises where commercial breeding or raising operations are carried on must have every cat or dog held undergo a veterinary examination before mating it for the first time.
In addition, as soon as the animal reaches the age of 7 years, an annual veterinary examination is required if the animal continues to breed.
During the examination mentioned in the first and second paragraphs, where the veterinary surgeon issues a recommendation that the animal must not breed due to health or behaviour problems, in particular aggressiveness, excessive fear or high levels of anxiety, the animal must be sterilized at the age recommended by the veterinary surgeon.
