Microchipping will become mandatory for all dogs & cats on November 1st 2015.

At CCVH we use ‘mini-chips’ which are about 1/3 of the size of regular microchips. Microchips are registered on a national registry, which means your pet can be identified by their unique chip id anywhere in Australia. Registration lasts for the life of your pet.


Mini-chips have advantages over regular microchips-

  • Smaller size means a less painful insertion
  • Smaller size means they are less likely to migrate underneath the skin
  • No local anaesthetic needle- quick & easy
