When we adopt or purchase a new pet, they automatically become a massive part of our lives and really become one of the family.

We all dread the thought of something bad ever happening to them and try our best to prevent it.

When a pet goes missing, we often find ourselves thinking will we ever see them again. The part of not knowing is an absolute devastating feeling and it is difficult to come to terms with.

Microchipping is one of the best methods of identification for getting your pet back if they are missing. Whilst having a collar around their neck with your contact details is also very important, these can sometimes come loose or break. If your pet is picked up by someone and brought to a vets or rangers department, they can use a scanner to scan for the chip.

The amount of animals returned to owners every year just from a simple thing like this, is enormous. I have even heard of pets missing for years turning up and being reunited with their owners.

Please remember to keep your contact details up to date with the microchipping company that they are registered with. You will be given a copy of the microchip form from your vets so keep this in a safe place.

The cost for microchipping your pet is usually between $50-$65 depending on your location and veterinary practice and will usually have a special offer if your pet is being desexed, vaccinated etc. at the same time.
