Microchip: don’t risk losing pets
THE recent floods in Queensland and NSW have sadly resulted in hundreds of displaced pets.
Natural disasters are an important reminder as to why it is essential ALL of your pets are microchipped.
When a lost pet has a microchip, they can be scanned at any vet clinic or animal shelter and the details attached to the chip found on a central database.
Unfortunately, for many microchipped pets, the contact phone number assigned to the chip is incorrect and this makes the chip useless.
If you don’t know your pet’s microchip number please drop by your local vet to scan your pet. If you already know the microchip number visit www.petchipregistry-au.info to update any details.
It’s a good idea to have an ID tag with name and phone number attached to your pet’s collar to speed up the lost and found process.
If your pet is not microchipped and would like more information, call Riverbank Animal Hospital in South Grafton on 6642 3083 and book your pet in today.
