Home of the once endangered Cheetah, the De Wildt Cheetah and Wildlife Centre has switched its microchip identification for all of its animals, to Identipet, South Africa’s premier microchipping and animal identification medium.
Vets, SPCAs and Animal Welfare Organizations can register with Identipet to get pet and owner information delivered to their cell phone 24/7.
At an emergency meeting of the divisional heads of animal units in the SAPS in July, it was decided replace the outdated SAPS microchip scanning and data system with equipment and expertise to be provided by Identipet.
The Advertising Standards Authority of South Africa has ruled FOUR times in under a year, in favour of Identipet (Pty) Ltd against Virbac RSA (Pty) Ltd for dishonest, unsubstantiated and misleading advertising in contravention of the ASA codes of practice.
The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has ruled that pet microchip supplier Virbac has to withdraw a misleading advert.
Chip for animals adds temperature sensing to ID capability.
