Hanly Veterinary Clinic & Hospital affordable Pre Paid Microchip Vouchers for your Pets
Microchip registration in the AAR Microchip Database.
The AAR (Australian Animal Register), is NOT to be confused with Council or Shire Registration which is very different from registering a pet’s Microchip number with a Microchip database and Register.
Pet owners if they choose to, may also wish to register their Pets Microchip number with other Animal Microchip registers, there is a list of registers and contact numbers at the bottom of this page.
It is the Pet owners responsibility to register their Pet according to the current Pet laws with their local Council or Shire. When Pet owners register their pets with their local Council, It is normal to also be asked for your pets Microchip number. All Cats and Dogs must be Microchipped by Law.

What is a Microchip?
A microchip is a RFID that transmits stored information. RFID means (Radio Frequency Identification Device). They are approximately the size of a grain of rice and safe to use on your pets for identification purposes. A microchip is implanted in an animal with a sterile implantation device usually in the soft scruff of the neck.
Microchips for Pets is an extremely common, and very safe procedure.
Microchips make use of Radio Frequency Identification Device (RFID) technology. RFID technology was discovered in 1948 by Harry Stockman, it allows information to be transmitted though radio waves to a receiver (a scanner) and has been used in many applications such as security and surveillance, and the tracking of animals, vehicles and even artwork for around the last 30 years.
