Virbac Change Policy On Replacing Microchips
Last week Virbac announced a program to replace all faulty Virbac chips regardless of whether they were still working. Yesterday (25 January 2018) they have changed the policy and will now only replace faulty chips that have failed.
Virbac did not consult with the NZCAR on this change in policy and we are disappointed with this decision. Not replacing chips that are proving to have a high failure rate has the potential to put the welfare of New Zealand pets at risk.
