Microchipping & Desexing Information

Since 1998 all companion animals in NSW over the age of six (6) months must be microchipped and registered with a lifetime registration under the Companion Animal Act.

You must have your companion animal microchipped (vets and animal welfare services offer this service) in order to obtain a lifetime registration. If your companion animal is already microchipped, your companion animal can be registered once you provide proof of microchipping.

To provide proof of microchipping you will need to either:

  • Show the certificate provided when your companion animal was microchipped, or
  • Obtain a signed statement with the animal’s microchip number from an authorised person such as a vet or animal welfare organisation representative

You will also be asked to provide proof of desexing if that is applicable.
