If a pet is ever lost and is handed in at an animal holding facility, a microchip scanner is passed over the animal to reveal the unique 15-number code.

This code is kept on a secure central computer database, accessible only to authorised users via the internet.

The animal holding facility can then search the state-wide PetRegistry database to identify the name, address and phone number of the owner, so they can be reunited with their pet.

A microchip is about the size of a small grain of rice, and is injected under your pet’s skin. It can be done during a normal consultation.

A microchip is the most effective form of permanent identification.

It's often vital for finding and returning lost pets.


If your pet is not microchipped, please give us a call to make an appointment to have one inserted.

If you find a stray animal, please take them to an animal holding facility for a microchip scan.
