CHIPPED: Cabonne Council had combined with Molong Veterinary Clinic and the Canowindra branch of the Cowra Veterinary Centre to offer the special $55 deal to both microchip and vaccinate an animal.

CABONNE Council mayor Ian Gosper believes an offer of half-price pet microchips and vaccinations this month is a win-win for everyone.

Cr Gosper said microchipping and vaccinations were vital for the health and safety of all cats and dogs and this promotion offered the perfect chance to get it done. 

“You are required by law to register your dog or cat when it is over six months old, so this is a great opportunity not only to help safeguard your pet, but to ensure you are not breaking the law,” he said.

Mr Gosper said Cabonne Council had combined with Molong Veterinary Clinic and the Canowindra branch of the Cowra Veterinary Centre to offer the special $55 deal to both microchip and vaccinate an animal.

“If a pet is already vaccinated and the owner wishes to have it microchipped, the cost will be only $25,” Mr Gosper added.

The service will be offered at Canowindra on Monday from 2.30pm to 3.30pm and at Molong on Wednesday from 1pm to 3pm.

Free microchip scans will also be available if pet owners want to ensure old microchips are still in working order.

The special offer is for residents of Cabonne shire only and all dogs and cats must be presented in a cage or on a leash.

Owners will not be limited to the number of dogs or cats they can have micochipped or vaccinated on the day, but must book a time slot for each animal to be treated.
