Microchipping for animals in Bayside at Sandringham Veterinary Hospital

Microchipping provides peace of mind in case your pet gets lost.

A microchip is approximately the size of a grain of rice and is injected under your pet’s skin behind the neck. The microchip is embedded with a code unique to your pet and is the most effective form of permanent identification.

The unique code can be accessed via a microchip scanner. When linked to the national computer database, it is possible to identify the name, address and phone number of the owner, and this can facilitate your pet’s safe return.

In Victoria microchipping has been compulsory since 1998. If your pet is not microchipped please contact us for an appointment.

If you find a lost pet please call us so our staff can conduct the scan and reunite pets with their concerned owners.

Remember to keep your records up to date when you move house or change phone numbers.
