Microchipping your pet cat or dog is very important. If your pet becomes lost then you are far more likely to become reunited if they are microchipped. Microchips are only as good as the information on the. Keep your microchip up to date which is the responsibility of the pet owner.
Section 14 of the Animal Management (Cats and Dogs) Act 2008 requires microchipping of cats and dogs prior to 12 weeks of age unless there is a reasonable excuse (such as a signed veterinary certificate that it would be detrimental to the animal’s health to implant it or it is an exempt dog).
In Queensland there are five microchip registry services which hold pet records. To find out which service your pet's microchip is registered with, visit www.petaddress.com.au
