How do I update my contact information?
After your pet is microchipped, it is essential to keep your contact information up to date in the microchip database. If you change your address, phone number, or any other contact details, simply notify the microchip company or registry where your pet's microchip is registered. You can also do this here. This ensures that you can be reached promptly if your lost pet is found.
What should I do if my pet goes missing?
If your pet goes missing, contact local animal shelters, veterinary clinics, and animal control agencies to report them as lost. Provide them with your pet's microchip number, which will aid in their identification. Additionally, make sure to alert the microchip company or registry about your missing pet. They can assist in spreading the word and coordinating efforts to locate your furry friend.
Can microchips track my pet's location?
Microchips do not have GPS tracking capabilities. They are passive devices that only contain the identification number. However, if your pet is found and taken to a veterinary clinic, animal shelter, or rescue organisation, they can use a microchip scanner to read the identification number and contact the appropriate microchip registry to retrieve your contact information.
Microchipping is a valuable investment in your pet's safety and security. By choosing to microchip your pet, you take an important step towards ensuring their well-being and increasing the chances of a happy reunion should they ever become lost.
