Microchips are only effective if you keep your contact or ownership details up to date.
At Gladesville Veterinary Hospital we will register your pet for you with the NSW Companion Animal Register (CAR). The CAR is a legal requirement, and in addition we register you with the Petsafe Register – a national 24 hour on-line register (as the CAR is not always accessible). You will be sent a Petsafe certificate with your unique password.
If you think your or your secondary contact persons details may have changed, we can provide you with the forms to update the NSW Companion Animal Register.
You can also download them at www.olg.nsw.gov.au via ‘Be a Responsible Pet Owner>’, ‘Forms – FAQs – How To’, ‘Change of Owners Details C3A’.
The Petsafe Register can be updated easily on-line at www.petsafe.com.au.
If you are unable to find your pet’s microchip number, you can contact our receptionists and they will look up your file (as long as the number has been recorded in our computer).
If you are unsure if the microchip number is recorded just ask the receptionists to check next time you are visiting the practice.
