Microchipping

A microchip, also known as a radio frequency identification device (RFID), is the most effective form of permanent identification for pets. Microchips are approximately the size of a grain of rice. Pet microchipping is an extremely common and safe procedure, and is simply implanted through a needle between the shoulder blades.

Queensland law now requires all dogs and cats to have a microchip implanted by the time they are 12 weeks old.

Microchips are available to be implanted from 6 weeks of age.

How to update your Microchip details

Have you got a new mobile number?….

Have you moved recently?….

Have you recently bought a new puppy or kitten?….

Have you recently sold a pet?….

If you are unsure which company your pets microchip is registered through, you can search this at www.petaddress.com.au. If you don’t know the microchip number, give us a call on 4922 8138 and we can arrange a time for you to bring your pet in for one of our lovely receptionists to scan the number.
