Pet Microchipping

Microchipping your pet

As most owners who have lost their pet know..there’s no guarantee that a collar and tag will stay with your pet but there are no such worries with a microchip.

A Microchip is a tiny electronic chip (the size of a grain of rice) which is injected into your pet as simply and quickly as any other injection.

Then if your pet goes missing it’s as if it has its own barcode unique to your pet. All stray pets are routinely scanned for the microchips by vets, shelters, pounds, stray dog and cat homes, etc.

This brings up the computer record with your details and in moments the pet’s owner and details will be known. We can a microchip your pet and give you instant peace of mind.

The microchip details are stored on a central database which is accessible Australia wide. The number links back to your contact details. This means if your pet is lost you can hopefully be quickly reunited with your pet.

Updating your pet’s details

Microchips are becoming compulsory for all pets in Victoria.

Most of the clients of Highton Vet Clinic pets are registered in one of the largest pet databases, Central Animal Records, if you need to update your details

If you are unsure as to which database your pets details are recorded onto check out Petaddress website to find out which national database they are on.

Both websites require your pets microchip number. If you are unsure what the number is, contact the clinic for help.

What an experience, amazing ♡
From walking in the keeping my best friend in great health. Thanks Vets of Geelong for the level of care, and to Josie and James especially for their genuine care and empathy toward our family. #memorable

Can not recommend more highly. The guys at reception are lovely, and the Vets & nurses really know their stuff. Our pets love them too ❤️ Prices are extremely competitive also, thanks for looking after our little ones!

Visits to the vet can sometimes be a difficult experience, but Vets of Geelong (Geelong West and Highton) make it that little bit easier. Very friendly staff and welcoming.
I really appreciate the follow up calls the next day - a nice bonus touch!

- David Keele

Have been to both Highton and Geelong West Veterinary Clinics and both have been outstanding with their friendliness, care and compassion towards both patient and clients. I was very satisfied with the care/treatment my animals received. I just received a follow up letter asking how my Dog is doing and some goodies/vouchers. How lovely

- Olivia Addison

Very happy with the service provided and would highly recommend the Geelong West vet to anyone who needs any form of pet care. Kind and caring staff who take pride in making you and for me my cat feel safe . The after care support is excellent aswell.

- Craig Smith

Our main vet Annie has looked after our boy Badger so well along with the rest of the team. They've really brought him so much happiness in his old age.
Love the ID tags as well, brilliant idea.
