Microchipping

Microchipping - Bird Vet Melbourne

We at Bird Vet Melbourne encourage all owner to have their birds microchipped (Microchipping) to facilitate identification and recovery if they are ever lost or stolen. Newer ‘mini-microchips’, that are about half the size of conventional microchips but still contain the same information, have become available and are excellent for birds. With birds less than 1 kg we recommend the microchip be placed while the bird is under a brief gaseous anaesthetic. which can be done during a consult while you wait. Please ask a staff member if you would like to have your bird micro-chipped.
