Microchipping is a simple and effective way to make sure that your pet can be easily identified should they get lost or stolen.
Your pet's microchip is a capsule inserted underneath your pet's skin, so it is permanent. It contains a unique number which should be registered on the approved database at the time of implantation.
Vets will register the microchip with an approved database when they implant the microchip. While microchips can't guide you to your pet’s location, they provide a way for you to be contacted, by almost any veterinarian or shelter, if your pet is brought in. Pet owners are required to keep their pet's details up to date with the database so please click on Register / Change Ownership if you are a new pet owner.
Keeping your information up-to-date on Animark is critical to successful repatriation, should your pet be lost/stolen.
