Updating dog microchip
When a change in pet ownership occurs, one frequently asked question is: What should I do about their microchip registration?
First, it’s important to clarify how a microchip works.
Unlike company swipe cards or smartphones, which can generate the same data, a person cannot easily separate themselves from the chip.
Until they take action, the pet will remain registered in your account.
Once the pet is transferred, it will no longer appear in your account.
When you re-home your pet, you will need to transfer the pet’s microchip registration to the new owner, so that the microchip number becomes associated with the correct individual.
If your pet is registered in the Found Animals Registry, you can follow the steps below to transfer a pet’s microchip registration to a new owner.
