Microchipping is the most effective form of routine protection. A chip can be scanned at any vet clinic or animal shelter. If your pet is lost or stolen, it can be quickly returned to you via national microchip database. This is why it is very important to update your details.

A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and is injected under your pet’s skin, usually on their back near the shoulders. It can be done during a normal consultation.  In some states of Australia micro-chipping of pets is now compulsory.

If you move address or change your contact details, make sure you update your pet’s entry on the pet registry.


If your pet is not microchipped please give us a call to make an appointment to have one inserted.  If you find a lost pet please call us to arrange a scan so we can reunite microchipped pets with their worried owners.
