A microchip is a small inert device similar in size and shape to a grain of rice. It is injected under the skin through a needle under the loose skin at the back of your pets neck.
The chip has a number, a bit like a barcode, that can be read by a scanner so if your animal is ever lost, any vet anywhere can locate the owner’s details quickly.
Microchipping is compulsory in most states of Australia including NSW and the ACT.
Remember it’s up to you to update your contact numbers and email etc. if you move. If your pet goes missing it is really important to have your current details up-to-date on the registry. This can be done through your local council or through the NSW Pet Register or ask us how to do this, we're happy to help.
