Introducing the Trovan/C.A.R. Microchip for companion animals.
You can order Trovan microchips in any combination of microchip size, implanter format and data entry method. Prices will vary according to your selections.
1. Microchip Size
Option A: Midi-Chip (8mm x 1.4mm)
- This is the more common microchip (transponder) size now used in most companion animals in Australia and is ideally suited to dogs and cats as well as birds and exotic pets.
Option B: Conventional (12mm x 2.2mm)
- The larger, 'Conventional-sized' microchip is ideally suited to large breed dogs and horses and has a slightly longer read range than the smaller “Midi-Chips”.
2. Implanter Format
Option A: All-In-One
- This combines the implanter, needle and microchip. This format is designed for those who prefer to use an 'All-In-One' implanter to deliver the microchip and the entire device is disposed of after use.
Option B: Enviro
This combines the needle and transponder only and requires the use of a re-usable implanter to implant the microchip. This format is designed for those who wish to reduce their impact on the environment by limiting the amount of plastic waste – only the needle is disposed of after use.
3. Data-Entry Method:
Option A: Forms or Online
- You can choose to post, fax or scan and email your subscription forms to C.A.R. for C.A.R. staff to enter or you can elect to enter the C.A.R. subscriptions yourself online.
Option B: Online Only
- The C.A.R. subscriptions for these microchips can only be entered by you or your staff online. Not only does this remove the need for paper and printing. It also means that there will be no wait times for your clients and C.A.R. identification certificates can be printed and handed to owners immediately after the data has been entered online. Selecting this option will reduce the cost per microchip.
CAR COLLAR TAGS
You can also purchase Central Animal Records collar tags linked to the animal microchip record for further facilitation of reunions of owners with lost pets. Priced at an additional $1.90 inc GST per tag. You can order this as an addition to your Trovan/CAR package by selecting the option in the dropdown list.
