Microchipping is the best way to keep your pet safe. Microchipping is usually carried out at your local veterinary clinic, however microchipping days are held regularly throughout the region. Your animal's microchip details are forwarded by your local vet to a national animal registry. Common registry websites are listed below. You are supplied with a registration certificate from the national animal registry once your pet's details have been lodged.
Livestock can also be microchipped.
