The Pet Directory - Dog Articles -Buyer Beware

Article supplied by Debbie Daley-Todhunter - (07) 3397 6917
As published in The Pet Directory QLD & NT & WA Edition

Every year hundreds of pets go missing for a number of reasons. These include theft, roaming, fear and induced flight from car accidents, thunderstorms, fireworks or any other load noises adventure seeking or roaming. Some owners spend hours searching, calling pounds and rescue services,printing and distributing flyers. Sometimes it’s a happy reunion other times it’s too late the dog’s time has expired at the pound or perhaps worse they never know and continue searching.

Now is that worth it or what?

The pain, time and expense of searching for a pet can be lessened or removed if a pet has a permanent form of identification. Microchipping is one form of permanent identification with a unique number that can be read by a scanner and can last up to 75 years so will definitely last the life of your pet. Microchipping
involves inserting a small glassine capsule about the size of a grain of rice under the skin between the dog’s shoulder blades with a hypodermic needle.

The procedure does not normally require sedation or pain relief as it rarely causes more discomfort than an annual vaccination. No sedation is required under normal
circumstances. It takes less than a minute to insert the microchip and it requires no further attention. The Australasian Animal Registry is Australasia’s largest not-for profit and the most comprehensive animal microchip registry helping reunite owners and lost pets. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The objective is the registry is to provide an accurate, reliable, independent and reputable database to assist in the recovery and welfare of companion animals. Imagine the relief when the phone rings and because of something the size of a grain of rice, your beloved dog is returned to you.
