The Importance of Pet Microchip Registration
After you have microchipped your animal, it is crucial that you register the microchip. If your pet becomes lost and his microchip is scanned, the scanner will display only the unique microchip number. You have to register the microchip number under your name so that any facility scanning your lost pet knows who the animal belongs to.
Once a puppy is in the new owner's hands, the owner often forgets to transfer the puppy's microchip information from the breeder to them self. When a pet is lost, it's tracked back to the last registrant - usually the breeder, not to the new owner. The breeder then has the time-consuming, frustrating job of tracking the chip to the puppy and then to the puppy's new owner. Many breeders have eliminated this frustration with prepaid registrations.
With microchipping, the critical step is the transfer of registration. For the lost animal waiting in a shelter, accurate registration ensures timely return of the pet to their owner. Consider pre-paid registrations as a time-saving way to facilitate the transfer of this important information.
