Update Your Pet’s Microchip
How to Update Your Pet's Microchip
You know that microchips provide a permanent, non-removable means of pet identification that will not fade or be lost over time, as can occur with tattoos or tags. Your information can be accessed immediately, ensuring the rapid return of your lost pet, avoiding delays, which can occur with other methods of pet identification.
But did you know that the microchip is only as good as the information associated with it? If you have moved or changed your phone number, then your lost pet may not be able to return home.
The Ottawa Humane Society currently uses EIDAP microchips. Animals adopted from us prior November 2005 were microchipped with AVID Canada microchips. The adoption paperwork for your pet will have the microchip number and provider information. If you are having difficulties, please contact us at 613-725-3166 ext. 223.
