Microchip Identification

Your pets greatest chance of being returned home! External tags can be lost, damaged, chewed, become unreadable or simply not worn - microchips stay with your pet for life and guarantee your pet will always be able to be identified.

What is a microchip?

A microchip is your pet's permanent form of identification. The tiny chip (about the size of a small grain of rice) contains a unique identification number that is linked to your address and contact information on a national integrated registry.

How does microchipping work?

  1. Pet becomes lost
  2. Pet is collected by passer-by, vet, animal welfare shelter
  3. Microchip scanned
  4. Animal Recovery Service called and microchip number quoted
  5. Owner contacted and advised pet has been found
  6. Pet returned home

How is microchipping performed?

A microchip is simply and easily injected beneath the skin by your veterinarian - just like a vaccination.

The process is completed in seconds, does not require an anaesthetic and the chip then stays with your pet for its lifetime. During this process, you will also be required to complete a Microchip Subscription Form that will contain your pet's microchip number and your address and contact information. This information is then forwarded and recorded with Central Animal Records that is part of an integrated national registry.
