Report a suspected problem with an animal medicine or microchip

3. An animal's reaction to a microchip

You can report suspected incidents with animal microchips including:

  • a reaction to the chip being implanted, such as injury, infection or prolonged bleeding
  • if a chip’s moved from where it was implanted or has come out
  • a chip that doesn’t read properly

You’ll need the microchip number to make a report.

Contact VMD if you can’t report the incident online.
