Microchips are a tiny electronic device that is inserted under your pet’s skin and is a simple way to identify your pet when they wander too far from home. All non-working dogs are now required to be microchipped by 3 months of age.

Each microchip carries a unique code that identifies your pet. If your pet is found by someone other than you, they can take your pet to a local vet clinic, SPCA or council where it will be scanned. The number corresponding to the microchip will allow authorized personnel to access a database which will have your contact details and arrangements can be made to have your pet returned home safely.
