Pet owners! Don't forget that that, as from the 1st of May, all dogs and cats in Victoria due to be registered with a council for the first time, must carry permanent microchipped identification prior to such registration.
Individual councils will also have the power to make microchip identification compulsory for all dogs and cats located within their communities as a condition for future renewals of registrations.
It would make a lot of sense to check out your local Council's policy on this important development.
Meanwhile, wherever you are, why not list your pet(s) on our National Pet Register? This Australia-wide service is free!
