There are now multiple pet MicroChip Databases in the UK, all working to reunite pets with their owners.
The databases work together to ensure that the keeper details are given out to authorised organisations, ensuring pets are reunited with their owners as soon as possible.
The UK PETtrac Database for example has freephone numbers and if a call comes in which relates to a non-PETtrac MicroChip it can be immediately transferred to the appropriate database, removing the need for the caller to re-dial.
Of course there are other ways that the PETtrac Database makes it easier - TEXTtrac (SMS Reunification), Electronic Reunification via our website and through some rescue software packages.
However, it was still believed that a tool which could help vets, rescue centres, dog wardens and pet owners alike was required - and that is how check-a-chip.co.uk was born.
It really is quite straight forward - simply enter the pet's MicroChip number and press search. The system then returns the most appropriate point of contact for that MicroChip, and if it is a PETtrac MicroChip will tell you whether or not it has been registered.
