Microchipping Cats and Dogs in Perth

Microchipping dogs or cats will identify for your pet for life, but it can also save their life! If they become lost and seriously injured, life-saving decisions can be made by you, the owner, much faster.

It is also now compulsory for all dogs and cats in Western Australia to be microchipped. With more than 8 million animals ending up in shelters every year, this new law will help pets to be reunited with their owners.

How Does Pet Microchipping Work?

A pet microchip is a permanent method of electronic identification. The chip is very small and it is inserted just under the skin at the back of your pet’s neck. Each one has a unique number that can be used to identify you and your pet. The procedure itself is short and simple – ask your vet about microchipping at your regular consultation.

Important note: You need to make sure your contact details are always up to date. That way, if your pet becomes stray or lost, vets, animal shelters and local councils can scan your pet for a microchip and contact you.

When Should Your Pet Be Microchipped?

Ideally, your pet cat or dog should be micro chipped prior to purchasing or adopting them. However, if they are not yet micro chipped, you should make an appointment with your vet as soon as possible.
