Microchipping

Microchipping is a safe and permanent form of identification for your cat. Unlike collars and tags, microchips cannot be lost. The microchip is approximately the size of a grain of rice, and implanted between the shoulder blades by injection.

All stray animals which present to the pound, animal shelter, or vet clinic are scanned for a microchip. If a microchip has been implanted, your cat can be quickly reunited with you. We generally implant microchips at the time of desexing, but it can also be performed during a normal consultation. It is now a council requirement that all dogs and cats are microchipped.

As a new kitten owner, there's a lot of new information learn. Therefore a complete downloadable guide to caring for your new kitten is available below for your convenient future reference.
