What is PetScanner?

Here at PetScanner, we offer 3 things that help protect & reunite our pets in an instant:

World's lowest cost microchip scanner

PetScanner is the world's lowest cost pet microchip scanner at just £9.99. Paired with our free app, it is compatible with Android phones and scans all FDX-B pet microchips (15 digit).

Identify any microchipped pet:

Registered with PetScanner

Upon scanning, the pet's chip number, registered UK database (and database phone number) is shown and, if the pet is registered with PetScanner, we will also provide the owner name, number & email so you can reunite the pet & owner at the tap of a button! The owner can also phone, text or email the person scanning and see where their pet was scanned.

Identify any microchipped pet:

Not Registered with PetScanner

When any microchipped animal is scanned with a PetScanner, the microchip number and registered database(s) is shown, along with the contact number for the database, so you can call them at the tap of a button!

DEFRA-compliant pet protection

We provide the lowest cost, DEFRA-compliant microchip registration for a one-off payment of just £2.99, where you can update your contact details for FREE for the lifetime of your pet.

Your registration also includes 3 free months of PetScanner Pet Protection (usually from £0.99/month) which gives you many benefits including instant notifications and the ability to see your pet's scan & search history.

PetScanner Pet Protection:

Instant Scan Notifications

Receive an instant notification if your pet is ever scanned with a PetScanner. You will also see where your pet was scanned and who by, so you can call, text or email the person that scanned your pet (and vice versa).

PetScanner Pet Protection:

Instant Search Notifications

Receive an instant notification when your pet's chip number is searched online with any other DEFRA-compliant lookup tool, including Petlog. See when the chip was searched and the database it was searched on.

PetScanner Pet Protection:

Scan & search history

View your pet’s previous microchip search records, including searches done via DEFRA microchip lookup tools, such as Petlog. The scan history provided is for scans made with a PetScanner. You can view your pet's search & scan history all the way back from August 2018.

Mark your pet as lost

Mark your pet as lost if they ever go missing and all nearby PetScanner users will be notified. If a user scans your pet, you can see where they were scanned, who scanned them and you can also contact the person scanning by phone call, text or email at the tap of a button (and vice versa).

View your previous scans

If you own a PetScanner chip reader, you can see your scan history. Click on a scan for a reminder of where the scanning took place and, if the pet was registered with PetScanner at the time of scan, the owner phone number & email address.

Make Personal Notes

Make personal notes on each animal you scan to keep a log of their activity & behaviour. Notes are only visible to you and they can be viewed in your scan history, or when you scan the animal again. This feature is great for dog groomers, walkers & kennels, as well as personal use!

Dog Friendly Places

We're more than just a pet database... Find your nearest dog friendly pubs, B&Bs, beaches & more using Dog Friendly Places. This is a free feature on our app and is available to everyone! Your next dog friendly adventure awaits...

How PetScanner can help lost pets

Thousands of pets go missing every year. Devastatingly, 1 in 8 of lost dogs that remain unclaimed face the threat of being put down. This is mainly due to their owners not updating their contact details. While this is an ongoing issue with current pet databases, PetScanner is free to update your details, ensuring you can always reunite with your pet if they are ever lost or stolen!

How PetScanner can help stolen pets

We've found that around 60 dogs are stolen every week, with only 1 in 5 dogs ever being recovered. Because of this, we've made sure PetScanner avoids fraudsters using fake documents that show a false microchip number, so you can ensure you are buying from a responsible breeder.

“Low cost device, works a treat, brilliant idea for reuniting animals with owners, everyone should get one :)”

“So easy to set up & use, just create an account, connect the scanner to a phone and scan away. I've already reunited a stray dog to his owner a few days after receiving mine. Highly recommend on price alone, no pc required like the other more expensive options.”
