Microchipping At Campbelltown North Animal Hospital
The safest place for your pet is at home, therefore it is important to ensure that your pet will always find its way home to you!!
It is a local council requirement that all puppies & kittens being purchased or re-homed be microchipped, and ALL puppies and kittens MUST be microchipped by 12 weeks of age and registered with the local council by 6 months of age. This rule also applies to all adult pets in ownership on or after July 1, 1999.
Pet microchipping is a quick procedure that can be done at anytime. Many people choose to have microchipping done during a vaccination consultation. The pet microchip is a small rod the size of a grain of rice, which is placed under the skin between your pet’s shoulder blades. Each microchip has an individual barcode number to enable identification of your pet. Our staff at Dr Spot will enter your pet’s microchip details onto the Australasian Animal Register.
In addition to microchipping it is also a legal requirement that all pets be registered with your local council. Lifetime council registration carries a one off payment. Registration of your pet is done through the local council – please see their website for more information.
