Over 9 million pet owners trust Petlog to help reunite them with their lost pets. If your pet should go missing, microchipping is a great way to ensure that the best efforts are made to reunite you with your pet. However, it is only effective if pet owners remember to keep their contact details up-to-date, which is a new requirement within the Compulsory Microchipping of Dogs legislation.
Any changes to an owner’s contact details must be updated on their microchip database to ensure compliance with the law. If a dog owner subsequently moves, changes contact telephone number, etc. then the dog is no longer considered microchipped under the new law and enforcement can be taken.
As the UK's largest pet microchip database and with additional benefits for you, Petlog has made the update your details process as easy and convenient as possible for pet owners by introducing Petlog Premium, supported by two mobile apps.
Microchipping is a simple safe and quick procedure. It can make all the difference in being reunited with your pet should they stray or go missing. Find out more about how microchipping works and how to find your local Petlog Implanter.Find out more!

Thousands of pets go missing each year, and a lot of those are never returned to their owners because their details are not up-to-date on a microchip database and they have no other form of identification. All dogs are required to wear a Dog ID Tag and the control of Dogs Order 1992 states that ‘any dog in a public place should wear the name and address of the owner either inscribed on the collar or a name plate or disc'.Collar Tags for Dogs
