A microchip is only as good as the information registered on them. There are many times animal control picks up a pet that is microchipped and the information registered with the microchip is inaccurate. Bad information on a microchip leads animal control to a dead end when trying to return an owner home. It is imperative that owners keep updated and current information on their microchips. If you give your pet away, change the owner information on the microchip. If you move, change phone numbers, or any of your contact information changes PLEASE update your pet’s microchip information!
How do you update the information? By contacting the microchip company and following their procedures. Below are the most common microchip companies we see:
