Why Microchipping is Important

As well as being a legal requirement in Australia, implanting a microchip give your pets the best chance of being identified and returned to you should they unfortunately become lost or stolen. Many pets can be microchipped and we strongly recommend this for all cats, dogs and rabbits. A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and contains a unique identification code for your pet. The microchip is implanted under the skin at the base of your pet’s neck, where it will remain for life. If your pet has not been microchipped, please give us a call and make an appointment with one of our veterinarians to have one implanted. Our friendly receptionist staff will be more than happy to assist you with filling out the microchip paperwork and your local council requirements should you have any further questions.
