Microchipping and name tags

Microchipping

It is a legal requirement in most states and territories in Australia to have your puppy microchipped. This tiny chip is placed under the skin of the neck, between your puppy’s shoulder blades. If your puppy is found and taken to a vet or animal shelter, staff will use a special scanner to retrieve the unique identifying code on your pet’s microchip, which is stored in nationwide registry databases. Therefore, it’s imperative that you keep these details up to date. If you’re unsure of your puppy’s microchip status, we can use our clinic scanner to check this. It only takes a few minutes and does not require an appointment.

Name tags

We recommend getting your puppy’s name engraved on one side, and one or more phone numbers engraved on the other. This gives you peace of mind knowing that if your pup runs off, most likely someone will find them and give you a call.

Remember: Talk to our team if your pet needs a microchip or to confirm your details registered on the chip.
