Microchipping

 

A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and is injected under your pet’s skin. It can be done during a normal consultation. The microchip is embedded with a code unique to your pet and is the most effective form of permanent identification. This code is placed onto a national computer database, so it is particularly useful in the return of lost pets. 

Microchipping for cats and dogs is mandatory in ACT, NSW, QLD, VIC and WA.  Microchipping for dogs only is compulsory in TAS.
 

Microchipping is required prior to registration with your local council. 
 

If your pet is not microchipped please give us a call to make an appointment to have one inserted.
