Microchip your pet

Bendigo Weekly | Bendigo Weekly | 12-Oct-2017


LOST pets are easier to find if they have a microchip, and one Bendigo store is stepping up to help. 

PETstock is having a microchip blitz on Saturday and Sunday, October 21 and 22. 

The initiative aims to keep pets out of pounds by offering affordable and accessible microchipping for just $10, a fraction of the usual cost at their Bendigo store. 

Microchipping is still the most reliable way to reunite a lost pet with its owner and this year the company is hoping to microchip 10,000 pets at stores across the country. 

This could save animals from a visit to the pound and owners from a distressing search for their favourite furry friends.

Despite the rise in lost and found pet pages on social media, a recent PETstock survey has found only eight per cent of the respondents had ever been successfully reunited with a lost pet thanks to social media.

The event will run from at 106 Hattam Street, Bendigo from 10am until 3pm on both days.
