Updating your dogs microchip details

| March 8, 2013

Did you know that you can now update your dogs micro chip details online?   This free service allows you update your dogs microchip details instantly!

All dogs that are sold in Queensland must be micro-chipped. Microchips give dogs an electronic identification number.   The chip is detected by radio scanners which can help locate your dog if they are lost.  It is important to keep your dog’s microchip details up to date with your current contact information.

The Australasian Animal Registry (AAR)

AAR maintains records for over 1.5 million animals from across Australia and New Zealand, including dogs, cats, birds, horses, zoo animals and even ferrets.

Microchipping your dog isn’t enough. You need to register the microchip and your contact details on a national database so your dog’s home can be found.

Wouldn’t you want your pet’s home details listed on the most reliable animal registry database in Australia? It is the cheapest insurance you’ll ever buy.

You can register your dog online with the AAR for AUD$8

    If you need to change your pet’s microchip details first go to petaddress.com.au and find out what database your pet’s microchip is in.

    Most dogs’ microchip details in Australia are in the Central Animal Records (CAR) and if that’s the case with your dog you can simply send an e-mail to info@car.com.au with a written request to update your pets microchip details, ensuring you quote your pet’s microchip number, along with your old and new contact details. If you’d prefer you can also call Central Animal Records on (03) 9706 3187 between the hours of 9am & 6pm Monday to Friday.
