What You Need to Know About Animal Microchip Registration

When it comes to protecting your pet, one of the most important steps you can take is to have them microchipped. A microchip is a tiny device that is implanted under the skin of an animal and contains a unique identification number. This number can be used to help reunite lost pets with their owners. However, in order for the microchip to be effective, it must be registered with a national database. Here’s what you need to know about animal microchip registration.

Why Registration Is Important

When a pet is lost, the first thing that animal control officers or shelters will do is scan for a microchip. If one is found, they will contact the registry associated with the chip and use the information provided to try and locate the pet’s owner. Without registration, there is no way for them to contact you if your pet is found. Additionally, if your pet ever needs medical care, having their chip registered can help ensure that they receive the correct treatment as quickly as possible.

How To Register Your Pet’s Microchip

The process of registering your pet’s microchip is relatively simple. Most veterinarians or animal shelters will provide you with a form that needs to be filled out and sent in along with a fee. Once this has been done, your pet’s information will be added to the registry and their chip will be linked to you as their owner.

What Information Is Required For Registration?

When registering your pet’s microchip, you will need to provide some basic information such as their name, age, breed, and any medical conditions they may have. You will also need to provide contact information such as your name, address, phone number and email address so that if your pet ever gets lost they can easily get in touch with you.

In conclusion, registering your pet’s microchip is an essential step in ensuring their safety and well-being. By providing basic information about your pet and contact details for yourself, you can help ensure that if they ever get lost they can quickly be reunited with you.
