FRAUDULENT MICROCHIP REGISTRATION COMPANIES

Please be aware that there are some fraudulent pet microchip registers on the internet.  They may take your money but not actually register your pet on any of the standard UK databases.  This is mostly likely to affect those bringing their pets into the UK from overseas.  

One example of such a scam is PetChipRegister-info.uk which may appear near the top of a search engine results list.

According to the Dog Trust website the compliant databases are:

 

• Anibase 01904 487600

• PetIdentity UK 0800 9751960

• PetLog 01296 336579

• PETtrac 0800 652 8 977

• SmartTrace 01208 420999

• National Veterinary Database 0330 123 9924

• Protected Pet 08452 262712

• Animal Tracker 01279 219777

 

All chips registered by The Veterinary Hospital Group are logged with PetLog, the largest of the UK databases.
