Benefits To Register Your Pet Microchip

1. Microchips are the most reliable form of permanent ID.

Microchips are the most reliable form of permanent ID for pets, when implanted properly and registered. Animals with permanent identification are reunited with their guardians in far greater numbers than animals with no identification.

2. Easy and quick procedure.

Microchip implantation is comparable to a routine vaccination. There is no need for anaesthetic when implanting a microchip and the procedure is over in minutes! Are you interested in getting a microchip for your pet? Make an appointment with one of our BC SPCA hospitals or ask your local vet about BC Pet Registry!

3. Microchips last the lifetime of your pet

A microchip is not a GPS or tracking device. Microchips use Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology which is only activated with the use of a microchip scanner. They do not require batteries like a GPS and last the lifetime of the animal.

4. Internationally traceable.

All microchips registered with the BC Pet Registry are traceable internationally via the American Animal Hospital Association’s (AAHA) universal pet microchip lookup, petmicrochiplookup.org. This partnership means that you can travel with your pet with confidence that you’re protected!

5. BC Pet Registry microchips are tested and safe.

The BC Pet Registry uses International Standards Organization (ISO) microchip technology, which is recommended by the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA).

FAQs

Absolutely! Cats that are microchipped are 20 times more likely to be returned home with permanent identification. Even indoor cats should be provided with permanent ID, as all it can take is an open window or door for a pet to lose their way.

Yes. Pets can slip a collar, but they cannot slip a microchip. Pets are often lost without their collars and tags, which makes permanent identification (ID) such as a microchip so important!

Yes, you can register your pet’s tattoo instead. While microchips are recommended as the most reliable form of permanent identification (ID), tattoos, when done correctly, are still a very dependable form of ID.

Please note: A licence is not a form of permanent ID. An additional form of ID, such as microchip or tattoo, is always recommended.

If you already have the pet’s microchip number, you can contact our call centre at: 1-855-622-7722 to see if they are already registered with the BC Pet Registry or another registry.

If you do not have your pet’s microchip number, you can take them to your local BC SPCA, shelter, or veterinarian to have them scanned. Record the number for your reference.

Please note: If the pet has been re-homed, a transfer of ownership form may be required. For pets already registered with the BC Pet Registry, please see our Ownership Transfer Form.

We strongly encourage you to do just that! Registration can be done online or by calling our toll-free Call Centre at 1-855-622-7722.

It never hurts to have your pet’s microchip registered in more than one place and will only increase the chances of them being found, so long as your contact information is up-to-date.
