Even though all of our clients at Vale Vets our registered with the Petlog database we have also included the contact details and links below to the Anibase database as your pet may have been microchipped at a previous vet or organisation.

For animals chipped outside the UK, registrations are kept on the Europet database at www.europetnet.com   

Please Note: In 2013 the government announced that from 6 April 2016 all dogs in England would have to be microchipped. Dog owners will need to:

  • Have their dog microchipped and registered on one of the authorised commercial databases
  • Register the details of any new owner before they sell or give the dog away
  • Keep their contact details up-to-date on the databases
