The pet microchipping day at Paddington will also provide access to pet-related services and products as well as expert advice on animal management.

Breeders coming to the event must have their Breeders Supply Number. To learn more about breeder requirements, read the Dog breeder regulation from the Queensland Government website.

Microchipping Benefits

Microchipping provides a permanent form of electronic identification to cats and dogs. With an implant the size of a grain of rice, the microchip contains a barcode with the contact details of the owner.

Pets that are microchipped are permanently identifiable across the country, so they can be returned safely to the owner in case they get lost. Owners should contact the microchip registry in case they change address.

Upcoming Microchipping Events

The council offers pet microchipping events as part of its commitment to implement the Queensland Government Animal Management (Cats and Dogs) Act 2008.
