Microchipping

Microchipping

  • Microchipping is a safe procedure that involves the injection of a small chip under the skin at the scruff of the neck
  • This means that if your dog or cat goes missing, as soon as it is found it will be scanned and you will be reunited with your pet
  • Depending on your pet, our vets may recommend implanting the chip at the time of your pet's vaccination or when it is asleep when it is being neutered (desexed)
  • It is a legal requirement in Tasmania that all dogs must be microchipped if they are 6 months old
