We have had quite a few people who have contacted us lately to ask about fake microchip databases. There are several of these around, the most prevalent is this one:
We estimate that they spend roughly £1000 a month duping people into registering their microchip for £18.00.
This registration does absolutely nothing. They aren’t connected to the other Defra compliant databases nor do they have any sort of reunification service.
There are others out there that do the same, some of them sell microchips on the basis that they are a Defra compliant database but they aren’t. It’s something to be very careful of if you’re registering your pet.
