All dogs must be registered on a Defra compliant microchip database.
It's the pet owner's responsibility to keep these details up to date. (Don't worry MyPet can help)
Law was introduced in 2016 to make it a legal requirement to have your dog microchipped and stored on an approved microchip database. The MyPet microchip database is one of the defra approved in the UK.
Did you know?
Nearly 50% of all households in the UK have pets!
More and more families see their pets as family!
You can get fined £500 for microchipping offences!
A survey found only 31% of lost pets had up to date details on a defra approved database. Many of these pets never found it their way home.
I signed up to this register in November, and then forgot about it. Until last night! Last night, our little terrier escaped from the garden and was probably gone for about half an hour before I realised. I went out to search for her and a neighbour told me that 2 girls had found a terrier pup and were taking her to the local vet to have her checked for a microchip. I got there roughly an hour after first noticing her missing, but in that time, I had already received 2 e-mails from Conor telling me that my let’s microchip had just been scanned and as I was collecting her from the vet, he rang to tell me exactly where she was. When I absentmindedly signed up for MyPet, I had no idea I would need their services so soon, nor did I expect such a rapid response. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would! Absolutely brilliant.
Transparent fees; no 'exclusive offers', no fake 'vouchers', no hidden charges, no upselling, no annual renewals and a tenth of the price - this deserves recommendations. Also pleased that I got an email warning after the microchip had been checked, which I did at another vet's website. Check all DEFRA approved sites and you'll end up back here.
Ordered some puppy toys 🧸 they arrived this morning - super fast delivery and efficient service with nice personalised touches such as being addressed to my pet and a thank you note. Most importantly, my dog loves them, she hasn’t put her dolphin down since she received her puppy package. I would not hesitate to recommend and will be purchasing more toys again very soon.
