Kitten & Cat Care

Microchipping

We recommend microchipping at the time of desexing, if not before. The microchip, which lasts for your cat’s entire life, is a rice grain sized silicon chip inserted under the skin between the shoulder blades. The chip stores your cat’s personalised number, which is registered on an Australia-wide database. When a Veterinary Clinic, Animal Shelter or City Council scans a lost cat the microchip number will be linked to your personal contact details, enabling a pet to be quickly returned home.

Remember that your cat will still need to be registered with the city council.

Pets don’t always love vets, but…

At Darwin Vet, we understand that if you are calm and relaxed, that will transfer to your animal at a time when they may be unwell, anxious and needing you the most. Therefore we pride ourselves on being the friendliest and most down to earth bunch of people. We’re all either locals, or we wish we were.
