Pet microchipping in Torquay

At Torquay Animal House, we understand the importance of keeping your beloved pet safe and secure. That’s why we offer professional pet microchipping services right here in Torquay. Microchipping is a simple yet effective way to ensure your pet’s identification and increase the chances of a safe return if they ever become lost.

Mandatory microchipping

Many municipal councils, including the Surf Coast Shire, require all pets to be microchipped. This mandatory requirement ensures the responsible ownership of pets and aids in reuniting lost pets with their owners. We are here to help you comply with this important regulation.

Convenient microchipping

We make the microchipping process convenient for you and your pet. Microchips, about the size of a grain of rice, are inserted under your pet’s skin during any consultation or while they are in for desexing surgery. Our microchipping service includes a registry with Central Animal Records, the Victorian Microchip Registry. This registration ensures that your pet’s information is readily available, increasing the chances of a swift reunion if your pet ever goes missing.

Separate from council registration

It’s important to note that microchipping and local council registration are separate processes. While microchipping provides a unique identification for your pet, council registration may involve additional requirements and fees. We are here to assist you with both processes to ensure that your pet is fully compliant with all regulations.

In addition to pet microchipping, Torquay Animal House offers a wide range of services to meet your pet’s unique needs, including nutritional advice  and pet ophthalmology
