A microchip is a permanent method of electronic identification required by law in most states for dogs & cats (excl. SA & NT). You can't tell by looking at the pet if they in fact have a microchip or not as the small chip is implanted under the skin between the shoulder blades at the back of the animal's neck. Most vets, pounds, council rangers, local RSPCA centers and some pet businesses will have a microchip scanner and can determine if an animal is microchipped or not. The scanner reads the chip's unique ID number and is recorded on a database registry along with the animal's and owners details. So why bother with an iD Tag? > Because life is busy, people move and/or change phone numbers + an iD tag overcomes the short term limitations of microchips. The fact is more people have a phone then they do a microchip scanner. > An iD tag attached to your pet's collar provides another person your phone number and an instant means to contact you without having to take the dog for scanning. > The database records the information provided by the owner/s. If contact details change or ownership, the database relies on the owner updating these details. The truth is, most forget to do this and if the owner isn't located within a given period of time then the animal is then usually rehomed or euthanised. WHY TAKE THE RISK?
