Since 1 July 2006 it is compulsory to have your dog microchipped, with the exception of working dogs. This includes any dogs that have never been registered and dogs classified as menacing. Contact your vet for more information on fees.
Microchip numbers are not given to Council by your vet, it is up to the owner to provide this detail to the Council.
If you require further information on microchipping, contact your local vet or Council.
