Updating microchip details
There are really only two reasons why you would need to update your dog’s microchip information.The first one is because your contact information changes.The other reason to update the microchip is if a dog goes to a different owner.Maybe your dog outlives you and you have it in your will that your sister gets him after you’re gone.If your pet is lost or injured the chances of it being found and scanned for a microchip are extremely high.However, if your details are not up to date there will be no way for you to know someone has your pet.Different services provided by the PETtrac Database service have been listed below for your convenience.Clicking on a specific item will take you to a page with more information.
In fact you might not realise this, but by law a dog must wear a collar tag or similar identification when out in a public place.
Not only it is a legal requirement to ensure that your contact details are up-to-date, but the microchip is useless without them.
It’s simple to update the details for your dog’s microchip; you can do it online, by telephone or by post – depending on which database your chip is registered to.
This is most important when you change address or take on a pet as a new keeper.
