Did you know that it is the law in the ACT to have all puppies, kittens, dogs and cats microchipped? A microchip is a small silicon chip, the size of a grain of rice that is implanted under your pet’s skin. The chip contains a unique identification number that identifies the pet’s owner through an animal registry. The microchip stays for life and provides your pet with the best form of permanent identification available. Implanting a microchip is a relatively painless, harmless once-off procedure and all our veterinarians are qualified to implant microchips.
All cats and dogs must be microchipped by 12 weeks of age.
