A microchip is form of permanent identification. It is an implant the size of a grain of rice and is injected under the skin. A microchip can be inserted under the skin of any species. No personal information is stored on the microchip, only the unique identification number. An implanted microchip does not cause any ongoing pain or discomfort to your cat or dog. The microchip does not require a battery or any maintenance and is designed to last the life of your pet. 

We only offer national registration with Central Animal Records. It is a legal requirement in NSW and Victoria that all dogs and cats are microchipped either before they are sold or given away from pet shops, commercial breeders and pounds or shelters. All cats and dogs aged three months and over must be registered with the local council. As part of registering your pet with the local council a microchip is required. 

 Horses registered with the Australian Stud Book and those vaccinated against Hendra virus require a microchip.
