Why PetScanner

Comply With The Law

As of April 2016, all owners must ensure that their dog is microchipped and their contact details are kept up to date. This increases the chances of your dog being returned if they are ever lost or stolen and also makes it easier to track down the owners of dogs that have carried out an attack. Failure to comply with this law may result in a £500 fine, so keep up with the law and register your pet with PetScanner for just £2.99 (includes free 3 month subscription).

Why PetScanner

Other Databases

Other pet microchip databases charge pet owners and breeders a registration fee and an extra £20 each and every time they want to update their contact details. We believe that this deters pet owners from updating their contact details, meaning that the chances being reunited with their pet if they ever become lost or stolen is unlikely. PetScanner only charges £2.99 registration (includes free 3 month subscription) and updating your contact details is free.

“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.”

Facebook Review

“Excellent!! Really impressed with your product. I got it to check new horses microchips against their passports as lots look the same! It did the job perfectly and saved getting the vet or spending lots on other scanners. Recommending it to everyone!”
