Pet microchipping for vets and how MyPet can help

Conor

Pet microchipping has been put into the spotlight as of recent. I’ve been speaking to a lot of vets recently about their current microchipping solution, where they buy microchips from and why they should buy microchips from us. I thought it useful to put together an article with some of the questions and discussion points.

1. Microchips charge pet owners for updating / changing their details

Pet owners are charged for changing their details or for upgrading their account. We put together this useful article as a good reference point for what those charges are. It’s one of the reasons we became a Defra compliant microchip database. When I was updating my address I had to pay £19.95 per dog to do this. I never received so much as a confirmation email from the microchip database

2. The recent issues with microchip databases

Over the last few weeks many veterinary professionals have mentioned issues with microchip databases and the effects this has. One of the most recent failures by a microchip database is documented HERE by the BBC.

3. What makes MyPet different?

This is the most common question we get asked in many different forms. Here is our answer:

  1. We’re a pet technology company. We focus on ensuring best in class security and reliability as well as an amazing user experience. Check out THIS VIDEO to see how easy it is for pet owners to register a microchip.
  2. We can help veterinary practices register microchips in a number of ways. They can register microchips through our platform in under 2 minutes, or empower their customers to register their own account. We’re also integrating with many practice management systems.
  3. We include lifetime registration for pet owners in our microchip price. Your customers will never have to pay to update their details.
  4. We believe in customer communication. We email pet owners bi-annually to check all their details are up to date.
  5. We email a pet owner if their pet’s microchip is ever searched. This helps with pet owner reunification.
  6. We offer pet owners access to offers and discounts

4. How much are your microchips?

We price our microchips based on your annual volume. If you purchase more than 100 microchips a year, please pop me an email – conor@mypethq.io and I will get back to you. You can check out our microchip prices HERE if you buy 100 or less in a year. We’re pretty confident we can match or beat your current suppliers price!

5. Can you tell me about your microchips?

To start with our microchips our compliant with the UK microchipping legislation. Here’s some information about it:

  1. ISO11784 / ISO11785 FDX-B
  2. ICAR Certified microchip numbers
  3. Single use syringe and needle
  4. Detachable needle to allow recycling of plastic
  5. Anti Migration technology
  6. Long bevelled needle to reduce the trauma and allow for quick healing
  7. Available in 3 sizes

The MyPet microchipping solution is brilliant. It’s much easier to register a pet’s microchip details and much easier for pet owners to access their microchip account. The MyPet team provide a really high level of service.

I signed up to this register in November, and then forgot about it. Until last night! Last night, our little terrier escaped from the garden and was probably gone for about half an hour before I realised. I went out to search for her and a neighbour told me that 2 girls had found a terrier pup and were taking her to the local vet to have her checked for a microchip. I got there roughly an hour after first noticing her missing, but in that time, I had already received 2 e-mails from Conor telling me that my let’s microchip had just been scanned and as I was collecting her from the vet, he rang to tell me exactly where she was. When I absentmindedly signed up for MyPet, I had no idea I would need their services so soon, nor did I expect such a rapid response. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would! Absolutely brilliant.

Transparent fees; no 'exclusive offers', no fake 'vouchers', no hidden charges, no upselling, no annual renewals and a tenth of the price - this deserves recommendations. Also pleased that I got an email warning after the microchip had been checked, which I did at another vet's website. Check all DEFRA approved sites and you'll end up back here.

Ordered some puppy toys 🧸 they arrived this morning - super fast delivery and efficient service with nice personalised touches such as being addressed to my pet and a thank you note. Most importantly, my dog loves them, she hasn’t put her dolphin down since she received her puppy package. I would not hesitate to recommend and will be purchasing more toys again very soon.

The website was so easy to work with and it didn't take me longer than 10 minutes to register and pay for my 3 pets. The price is so reasonable for what you get. You are obviously super efficient as the E-mail confirming their registration came through straight away and explained anything else I might need to know. On the whole, just completely professional.

So impressed with MyPet. When we got out new puppy I was shocked how much Petlog wanted to register her microchip but it also made me question why I never heard from them re our other dog - ie checking in or email updates etc. I was recommended MyPet by a colleague and was blown away by how reasonable they were - so much so I registered both dogs for the peace of mind that I have them both in same place. I had a couple of questions and Conor was quick to respond - unlike above mentioned company whom I’m still waiting to hear back from for over a week. I hit submit on Payment page and instantly got certificates - very slick. 10/10 for ease and customer service

So many DEFRA recommended sites to search but this one ticks all the boxes. As soon as I paid the exceedingly low cost payment - my certificate came through. Now my adopted Greek cat who arrived yesterday on his Euro Pet Passport has his Greek microchip number registered in UK. Big thanks Conor & team!
