State Government legislation requires that all cats and dogs that are being registered with a Council for the first time are microchipped prior to registration.
Microchipping is the best way to identify your pet and assist us to re-unite you if your pet is lost, and provides long-term benefits for the municipality.
Only authorised implanters (such as registered veterinarians or authorised implanters who have completed the required training) can implant microchips.
Owners of newly microchipped animals will receive a certificate of identification from the licensed registry where information is kept. It is important to check the information on the certificate and make sure it is accurate. In future, if your residential or contact details change, it is vital that you update the information on the microchip registry.
