Veterinarians and Dogs and Cats Online

Over 700 South Australian veterinary industry users enter desex and microchip details into Dogs and Cats Online.

Vets must inform the Dog and Cat Management Board of any desex or microchip procedures they perform within five days. This is quick and easy with Dogs and Cats Online. Alternatively, vets must complete and submit a procedure form to their council, or provide a certificate (which includes the details on the procedure form) to their client.

Breeding details can also be captured on animals' records.
