Apart from it being the law for dogs, if your pet should go missing, microchipping is a great way to maximise the chances of being reunited you with your pet. It is vital that pet keepers remember to keep their contact details up-to-date, and this is so important that it is a new requirement within the Compulsory Microchipping of Dogs legislation. Remember that without up-to-date details, we might not be able to contact you to reunite you with your lost pet.
Chipworks is an associate of Euro Pet Net, a pan-European meta-database that ensures that your pets are identifiable across Europe if you travel with them. Euro Pet Net stores details for over eighty million animals and is the most referred to Database in Europe for these purposes. So even when you travel abroad with your pet, we are keeping an eye out for you.
According to the law, if a dog keeper moves residence, changes telephone number then the dog is no longer considered microchipped unless the details are updated on the database, and under the new law and enforcement can be taken.
