Why is Pet Microchipping Important?

A microchip is the best form of identification for your pet as it can’t be removed, lost or faded over time.

Your pet’s microchip will only contain an identification number. This number will correspond with all of your contact information when scanned, allowing you to be promptly notified if your pet is found.

Other benefits of microchipping your cat or dog include:

  • Compliance with local shire and WA state government laws
  • Speeds up how quickly lost pets are safely returned to you
  • Verifying legal ownership in disputes where pets have been found or stolen
  • Peace of mind knowing you’ve drastically improved the chances of their safe return
 At Paw and More Vet Centre, we know that microchipping works to keep pets safe. That’s why we aim to keep this service as affordable as possible for our clients.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

TESTIMONIALS & REVIEWS

What’s Involved in the Pet Microchipping Process?

The procedure for microchipping your pet is very simple. We use a needle to quickly implant a small electronic device the size of a grain of rice under your pet’s skin. Sedation is not even required for this simple procedure, and it causes minimal discomfort to your puppy or kitten.

What’s even better is how fast the entire process is. In just a few seconds, the procedure will be over, and your pet will have their microchip for life. Given that pet microchipping only takes a few seconds, it’s a fast and affordable way to protect your precious dog or cat.

The procedure is safe even for puppies and kittens, so there’s no reason to wait to microchip your pet.

If you have any questions about the microchip implantation process, please reach out to our friendly staff.

Dog Microchipping Perth

Getting your dog microchipped in Western Australia is a quick and easy process. The procedure is very quick, and your dog or puppy will barely notice it. In Western Australia, dog owners are legally required to have their puppy microchipped by the age of three months old, as per an amendment to the Dog Act 1976. However, since your puppy can be microchipped as early as eight weeks old, we recommend getting it done as soon as possible. Here at Paws and More, we understand that having your puppy undergo a medical procedure for the first time can be daunting, no matter how small. Don’t worry; our experienced vets will be able to answer any questions you have. When it’s time to get your puppy microchipped, choose the team at Paws and More, a veterinary clinic you can trust.

What is the Best Age to Microchip a Puppy?

Generally, the best age to microchip your puppy is around eight weeks. Legally, you don’t have to get your puppy microchipped right away at the eight-week mark. But because microchipping is fast, painless and affordable, there’s no reason not to get your puppy microchipped and protected as soon as possible.

Cat Microchipping Perth

Like most Australian states, you are legally required to have your cat microchipped in Western Australia. As per sections 14 and 23 of the Cat Act 2011, kittens in Western Australia legally need to be microchipped by six months old and can be microchipped as early as eight to twelve weeks old.

In addition, as a cat owner or breeder, it is your legal requirement to ensure that any kitten has been microchipped before being sold. If you have any questions about your legal obligations as a cat owner regarding microchips, get in touch with the team here at Paws and More. Our friendly team will have the information you need and can organise a convenient time to get your cat or kitten microchipped.

What is the Best Age to Microchip a Kitten?

Kittens can be microchipped between the ages of eight and twelve weeks. The age that kittens legally need to be microchipped varies between Australian states, but since the procedure is so minor, there’s no reason not to get them microchipped as soon as possible.

Pet Microchip FAQs

Pet microchips are intended to last a lifetime! This means dogs and cats only need to be microchipped once, except in rare cases. The only reason your pet would need another microchip is if the first one is no longer scannable.
Yes, microchipping your pet is safe. The microchipping process is fast and almost completely painless, with your pet sustaining no lasting pain as a result of the procedure. They will feel a slight prick as the microchip is inserted, but it’s over very quickly, making the process quick and easy for even the fussiest of pets.
Yes, pet microchipping is one of the most affordable costs of pet ownership. It’s important to note that unlike pet registration costs with your local or state government, microchipping is a one-off cost. It’s also much cheaper than the fines you’ll have to pay if your dog or cat is found without a microchip, meaning there’s no reason not to have them microchipped.
Yes, there are rare exemptions to microchipping your pet in Western Australia. If your vet believes that microchipping your pet would negatively impact their health and safety, they can issue a certificate of exemption. If your pet is exempt, you will need to provide a copy of the certificate of exemption to your local shire.

To change the details on your pet’s microchip, you’ll need to contact the pet microchip registry your details are stored on and request an update. This is usually done via an online form.

It’s essential to keep your pet’s microchip details up to date, especially if you change numbers or move houses. Keeping this information current ensures that if your pet is lost, they can be returned to you more quickly and easily.
