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.
