Microchipping

We recommend microchipping at the time of desexing, if not before. A microchip is a small, rice grain sized silicon chip inserted under the skin between the shoulder blades. It stores your dog’s personalised number and lasts for the life of the dog. This number is registered on an Australia-wide database. When a Veterinary Clinic, Animal Shelter or City Council scans a lost dog the microchip number will be linked to your personal contact details, ensuring your dog finds it’s way home.

Remember that your dog 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.
