Central Animal Records Passes 2 Million Pet Milestone

Dr Scott Ison of Deniliquin Veterinary Clinic has implanted the microchip into the 2 millionth animal to be recorded on the National animal registry, Central Animal Records. Snookie is a Great Dane-cross pup who was implanted as part of a litter of 12 puppies and was found to be "Pet Number 2,000,000" on the nationally-accredited animal registry. Like many veterinary clinics and animal welfare groups throughout Australia, Deniliquin Veterinary Clinic have been implanting Trovan microchips registered with Central Animal Records for many years! Central Animal Records was the first national microchip registry in Australia and provides a 24 hours per day, 7 days per week animal recovery service for lost or stolen companion animals including not only dogs and cats, but also horses, birds and even reptiles! And, amazingly, Central Animal Records has now been responsible for reuniting over 500,000 lost or injured animals with their owners! Some of these events have also involved locating lost children who were with their family pets!
Microchip identification still offers the most effective method of helping vets, animal shelters and animal control officers to help quickly notify owners if their pet has been found injured or lost. It is an inexpensive and easy procedure to have your pet microchipped and there are even now smaller microchips designed for use in kittens, cats and small breed dogs and puppies!
The most important issue is that your contact details are kept up to date to ensure that you will always be linked to your pet and this can be done online or by contacting Central Animal Records directly.
