Lost Lucy!

Lucy is a six year old Staffy who wandered into a café looking for a treat and a cuddle. The café staff could not see her owners anywhere so they brought her to us to identify her. All lost animals brought into the clinic are scanned for a microchip. Luckily Lucy had a microchip and we were able to contact her owners straight away via the microchip central database. Lucy's owners were very happy to be reunited with her.

Microchipping is a permanent form of identification for cats, dogs, horses and even rabbits. It is the most reliable and quickest way to reunite a lost pet with its owners as collars and tags may fall off or get lost when your pet goes missing. Find out more about microchipping your pet.

It is also very important if your pet is already microchipped to make sure your information is up-to-date. Each time you change address you must update your details with the microchip database company with which your pet is registered. You can contact Central Animal Records either by phone 1800 333 202 or online www.car.com.au to do this. If you do not know your pet's microchip number or are unsure if your pet is microchipped, please contact the clinic to make an appointment for one of our friendly team members to scan your pet.
