A microchip is a very small identification implant placed just under the skin between the shoulder blades. The microchip is registered with the owner’s details, so if the pet ever gets lost, the microchip can be scanned and owner’s details accessed.

It is law in Western Australia to have both dogs and cats microchipped.

Implanting a microchip is a very quick and simple procedure that can be performed by your vet in consultation.
