Updating avid chip info


A great many microchipped pets wind up in shelters and never make it back home to be reunited with their people after getting lost solely because nobody can track down and get in touch with the owners due to unregistered or out-of-date contact information!You can call your vet’s office or the shelter/rescue where you adopted your pet, they may well have it in their records.All you need is their microchip number and an internet-connected phone or computer(or a pen)! See "Step 1" in the "Checking & Updating Microchip Info" section above.



Your pet's safety, as well as your peace-of-mind depends on it. After all, properly registered and microchipped pets make their lives SOOOOOO much easier and help to keep the shelters less full.Note that some registries are "universal" (can register any brand of microchip), while others are imited only to their brand of microchip.Also, some registries charge both to register and do updates or transfers, while others charge for some of these steps but not all, and some are completely free. Feel free to share your pet microchip and ID related stories and advice in the comments section below.You'll also want to refer to this info and check your contact info should your pet ever go missing, as we discuss in our Tips For Finding Lost Pets article.

Again, the importance of regularly checking and updating your pet's microchip registry information cannot be overstated.

The first one is because your contact information changes.
