Microchipping is a simple procedure whereby a small rice grain sized microchip is implanted under the skin between the shoulder blades. Each chip has a unique number that can be detected by a scanner and is linked to a national database. This provides identification in cases where your pet is lost or stolen.

The council pound, humane societies and most veterinary practices have scanners. A free phone number is available to allow the owner to be traced through the registry.

In Queensland it is compulsory for dogs and cats to be microchipped by the age of 12 weeks. 

Microchipping your pet only takes 5 mins and costs $35. We regularly reunite pets with their owners because they have a microchip so please ensure your pet is microchipped and the contact details are up to date.

As well as this, Park Ridge Animal Hospital has its own pet identification system. Please ask a staff member for information about this free and easy service that we offer our clients.
