Microchip implanters

There are around 200 microchip implanters across South Australia entering microchip data into animal records on Dogs and Cats Online.

In South Australia microchip implanters must inform the Dog and Cat Management Board (the Board) of any microchip procedure they perform within five days. This is easy when they use Dogs and Cats Online. Microchip implanters can register to request access (see below)

Alternatively, they can complete and submit a procedure form to their council or provide a certificate to the owner which includes the mandatory information (marked on the procedure form).

RSPCA New South Wales and TAFE NSW offer comprehensive dog and cat microchip implanting courses via online delivery.

Advice for your clients

Once you have microchipped an animal and created a new record in Dogs and Cats Online, the owner (this may be a breeder if they have not yet sold the animal) will need to then log in to Dogs and Cats Online with the microchip number to register it into their name.

If they sell or give the animal to another person, they need to transfer it to the new owner. The new owner will then need to log in to Dogs and Cats Online with the microchip number to register it into their name.

You can provide your clients with the following leaflet to step them through the process. This leaflet also graphically explains the microchip registration cycle.
