Registering & Searching For Pet MicroChips

The UK PETtrac Database for MicroChipped pets is constantly developing new and improved ways to register MicroChips and interact with the database service.

Over recent years PETtrac, managed by AVID Plc, has been at the forefront of these changes bringing them to customers before any other database in the UK.


Pet MicroChip Registration


There are now multiple ways to register pet MicroChips on the UK PETtrac Database - see below for more details.

Instantly register pet MicroChips using your client management system

If you're using a practice management system or a software package to manage your customers' details then it might be possible to register your pet MicroChips directly on the UK PETtrac Database.

Supporting software systems (generally those which support VetXML and VetEnvoy) send the client's and animal's details directly to us with the pet's MicroChip number to facilitate MicroChip registration in seconds, NOT minutes!


It's common sense!

Why would you want to spend time re-entering information on a separate system, or filling out paper registration forms when the information is already available?

The information gets sent directly to us, registered, and a message confirming the successful registration is then returned to you in just a few seconds!


But will it work with my system?

There are a lot of veterinary and rescue organisation systems that now support this feature, so just get in touch with us and we'll be able to tell you whether yours will.

We've also been able to work with bespoke systems (designed by or for the specific vet practice or rescue centre) to enable them to integrate this functionality. Talk to us about this as well.

The majority of our customers have changed how they now register the pet id MicroChips that they implant, switching from paper registration to an electronic system.

Registering a pet MicroChip online takes a lot less time than completing a paper registration form and gives the assurance that the pet is instantly registered and protected.


Years of Development

With years of development and enhancements, the system has been tailored to the requirements of vet practices, rescue centres, dog wardens and individual implanters.

Integrated postcode software, autocomplete fields for breeds and colours, and the ability to re-use information for litters of animals all help make it a quick and simple process.
