Did you know that your microchip supplier reflects on your veterinary practice?
We regularly receive calls and emails asking where the closest veterinary practice that uses our microchips are. We always ask why and this article summarises some of the reasons we hear.
The quality of the microchip comes up quite often. A lot of people want the best possible quality as it’s something that’s actually injected into their animals. We hear this a bunch from animal breeders. Here’s a recent quote from a call:
I’m keen to ensure the microchip is of the best quality. My local vet’s microchips are made in Asia and after reading up on the quality of your microchips I’d prefer my litter have yours implanted.
Microchip database service levels
Not all microchip databases are made equal. Some offer dreadful customer service and your customers may not discover this for a few weeks or a few years after the microchip has been implanted. Here are a few reviews where the pet owner/breeder discover these issues. This is only a few reviews from across different microchip suppliers.
Microchip database Charges
Many different microchip suppliers charge differing fees for pet registration.
We found in a survey that 72% of pet owners would be put off updating their details because of a charge to do this.
So why MyPet?
