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.

General Identification with PetScanner

Thousands of our pets are involved in accidents every year. Sometimes, we may not know immediately when or where these accidents have occurred. Consequently with PetScanner, anyone can scan the microchip of your pet, notifying you immediately of your pets whereabouts with the contact details of who scanned their microchip.

Available Worldwide

The PetScanner app works worldwide, so you can locate your pet even if they’ve been taken overseas.

Temperature Readings

You can view your pet's temperature on a graph to see patterns, trends and spot any abnormalities (thermal microchips only)

Smart Database Integration

Our smart integration with other pet databases means that when you register with us, you'll receive an instant notification (via our app or SMS) whenever your pet’s microchip is scanned or searched online, either with PetScanner or any other database. Additionally, you can immediately contact that person and get in touch with them to reunite with your missing pet. If a scanned pet is not registered with PetScanner, the app will display the pet's microchip number and will even tell you which database they are registered with - pretty powerful!
