Thread: Microchip and Tattooing

    I like microchips... all of my past & present dogs are MC, neither chips have slipped or re-logded themselves from original placement in back of neck.

    Being on farm and having***cough***splutter***working dogs** I am not even required to register them.
    I have however chosen to microchip and lifetime register just for some added peace of mind.

    I didn't even know some vets tattoo with chipping. If Bandit has a tat I will know my vet does it. The girls may have a desex one.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Greys, if at any stage any of your said dog's require a general for anything, just take in their de-sexing certificate and request the vet do the tattoo while they are under. Even a local will do the trick.

    Troopa is MC and I think it's worth getting done. He also has a tattoo being a GSD. It was funny when we went to pick him up at 8 weeks and the breeders had bathed one of the male pups thinking it was ours. Wasn't until she was giving his ears a clean the she saw that tattoo and realised that she had the wrong male

    Definitely think the tattoo is a great idea. I'll always be able to identify my pooch

    I like the idea of microchipping but like others have said...its not fool-proof.

    I like the idea of MC. Do wish vets would make it a bit more affordable.

    All the Whippets chips have moved, both the adults and even the puppies after just 6 weeks so maybe its a body fat thing. Can't blame the person doing the chipping because all 5 of the whippets have been done by 4 different people. I can feel the chips on a couple of them.

    When I took the puppies last week for their second needle the vet, didn't get my usual guy but one of the others, scanned the puppies. I thought that was good.

    I wish more vets would scan more often. People need to be aware that chips do move so a thorough scan is needed.

    Our council charges less for a desexed dogs unless you are a registered breeder.

    As others have said it's not fool proof but the best we've got.

    Is that for registering? The full cost of registration each year here is $40, as we had Troopa MC for his first registration we only had to pay $36 and now that he's desexed we'll only have to pay $20 next time payment is due.

    Megan... in NSW we have a one off life time registration fee, prices are variable depending of dog is de-sexed or not, you just change your address etc with local council when ever you move house etc.

    I paid $40- fee for life time registration of microchipped desexed male dog.

    Our pets are MC, but none have the tattoos, we weren't even asked if we wanted them which is annoying because I did want them to have tats as well.
