View Scan History

We believe it’s useful to keep track of which microchips you have scanned with a PetScanner, that’s why you can view all previous scans in our app, under the ‘my scans’ section.

If a previously scanned pet was registered with PetScanner, you can view the chip number, where your scan was made and the contact details (name, phone number & email) of the pet owner. If a previously scanned pet was not registered with PetScanner, you can view the chip number and which database they were registered to.
