So often, pets are lost, stolen, or simply find a way to escape. So long as they are microchipped, you will be contacted almost immediately.
As a veterinary clinic, we quite frequently have people bring lost pets in to us. If the animal is found to have a microchip, you will hear from us immediately however if it doesn’t; they are collected by the local council ranger and taken to the pound. This can result in exorbitant discharge costs – if and when you eventually find them. Not only does the Victorian State Government legislation require all cats and dogs to be microchipped prior to registration, microchipping your pet is the most effective way to identify them and assist veterinary clinics, animal shelters and councils to re-unite you with them.
