What Information Will the App Show?

When any pet is scanned with a PetScanner microchip reader, the minimum information the app will show is the microchip number and the UK DEFRA database in which the pet is registered to. If the scanned pet is registered with PetScanner, we will give you this information plus the owner's contact details (name, phone number and email address) so you can reunite the pet and owner at the tap of a button! The pet owner will also receive your name, number, email address and location of scan.
