    FREE Database Registration Updates - National MicroChip Month 2012

    June is National Microchip Month and once again the UK PETtrac Database is offering pet owners FREE registration updates for the whole of this month.


    This is the third year running that AVID and the UK PETtrac Database have offered free updates as it is vital that pet owners keep their contact details up-to-date.


    Updating the microchip registration information is so often forgotten when a pet owner changes telephone numbers, moves house or even transfers the pet to a new owner.  It is hoped that this initiative will help remind pet owners of the importance of keeping their contact details current.


    For veterinary practices, rescue centres and dog wardens free marketing packs are available by calling AVID on 0800 652 7 977 or visiting www.petchipupdate.com


    Pet owners can update their details Monday-Friday 9am-5:30pm by telephoning freephone 0800 652 8 977, returning a change of details form or 24hrs a day via www.pettrac.co.uk
