Microchipping is a permanent form of identification for your pet. Inserting a microchip is like a vaccination, it only takes a few seconds. The procedure is very safe and your pet will feel little pain. Once done, your pet’s details, your contact address and phone numbers are entered on a national database.
As of the 1st of July 2018, all cats and dogs older than 12 weeks of age in South Australia must be implanted with an identification microchip.
