If you move address or change your contact details, make sure you update your pet’s entry on the pet registry.
If a pet is ever lost and is handed in at a veterinary clinic or animal shelter a microchip scanner is passed over the animal to reveal the unique code. The vet or animal shelter can then refer to the database to identify the name, address and phone number of the owner, so they can be reunited.
In Victoria it is now compulsory for people breeding or selling companion animals to have a "Source Code" which identifies where the pet has come from. When purchasing a pet please be sure to get the "Source Code" from the vendor as we are not permitted to microchip animals unelss we have a source code.
