It’s important for local vet businesses to keep up to date information on the microchips of their animal patients. This way, if a pet goes missing, there is a higher chance of finding the pet’s owners once it is found. If pet owners have the wrong data on their pets’ microchip, then it’s unlikely that they can be reunited with their pets if they ever go missing. This is why it’s so important to update information when it changes in order to prevent the worst from happening.
Although Microchipping can help in the event that your pet goes missing, it’s important for vets to encourage pet owners how to keep their animals safe and avoid them escaping. In winter, especially around Halloween and Bonfire night, pets are more susceptible to running away. This is because many pets are spooked by loud noises, and will bolt if they have the opportunity to. Vets around the UK should inform pet owners of the risk involved in letting your pets out around this time, and provide information on how to prevent the worst from happening alongside products that can calm your pets in the event of loud fireworks.
In the UK, it is now mandatory for all pet owners to chip their animals and have their data recorded online through services such as Petlog. If you are a puppy breeder, you must ensure that your puppies are microchipped before they are sold on. Once they have been sold, details on a microchip must be updated by either the breeder or new owner. Despite the new law for microchips in the UK, pets must also wear an ID collar in order for them to be recognised.
All pet owners in the UK are responsible for chipping their pets, regardless of when they got the dog. If owners do not chip their dogs or have them chipped by unauthorised implanters, then owners could be faced with a £500 fine for breaking the law. If a microchip is also not up to date with owner information, owners could be served a notice of time, in which they must change the details of the chip.
The only dogs which cannot be micro chipped are those that have been cleared by a veterinary professional for their health or for other reasons.
Petlog is managed by The Kennel Club and hold ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 in conjunction with government legislation.
Microchipping is a way of reuniting lost pets with their owners. To insert a microchip, a trained vet or implanter will implant a small implant which is roughly the same size as a grain of rice. Once in place, microchips can be detected by any trained professional. Petlog has the largest database in the UK of pet owner information and is fully compliant with government legislation.

If you have lost a dog or cat, vets and professionals can read your dog’s chip (if he is found) and be able to reunite you two easily and safely. Dogs that are not micro chipped run the risk of being rehomed or worse, which is why micro chipping them is the best option for you and your pet. Don’t wait until it’s too late, get them chipped today. In order to see if your local vets offer microchipping services, call them directly.
