Microchip – What is it and why do we need it?

Pet Information January 23, 2014

microchipWhat is a microchip?

Microchips are a Radio Frequency Identification Device that is implanted in an animal with a sterile implantation device in the soft scruff of the neck. Microchips are the most effective form of permanent identification for pets.

Why do we need to microchip our pets?

It is very important to ensure your pet cat or dog is microchipped because if your pet cat or dog becomes lost, you are far more likely to be reunited if he or she is microchipped.

What if I change my contact details?

The easiest way to change your contact details is to search http://www.petaddress.com.au using your pet’s microchip number. Petaddress will redirect you to the database that lists your pet’s microchip number so that you may contact them directly. Some registries provide Change of Address forms on their websites.

Here is a list of current microchip registries:

  1. Australasian Animal Registry
  2. Central Animal Records
  3. Petsafe
  4. Pet Register
  5. HomeSafeID
  6. Pet Registry NSW

If you don’t know your pets microchip number contact your veterinarian, council or animal welfare shelter who can scan your pet and supply you with the microchip number
