Thank you for doing that.
Making the call "Are you missing a pet" be it from chip info or number on a tag, is why we do what we do.
Thank you for doing that.
Very good point..and one I spend countless hours and hundreds of dollars getting past...outdated pet profile contact info.
It depends on the chip company.03Lightningrocks wrote: ↑Wed Oct 02, 2019 5:35 pmAre you sure about this? I only registered my dog when he first got chipped. I don't remember them saying I had to pay each year. I suppose I better check on it. Thanks for the heads up.LDP wrote: ↑Wed Oct 02, 2019 5:24 pmLet's not forget that while the implantation of the chip is not really that expensive (and sometimes vets do it for free as part of some promotional events), it's the registration database fees that surprise most people. If you don't pay a registration fee, your dog is not inserted into the DB. And if you don't pay their annual ransom, your dog is erased from the DB.
Every single time we found a loose dog and too it to a local vet, they said "the registration came back old and outdated".
We rely on a good collar with our dog's name and our contact information.
Yes Smart Tag (what we use ) and Home Again are one time fee, plus what ever the chipper charges...We do it for free so what we pay for the chip is what we ask for.flechero wrote: ↑Sun Nov 10, 2019 8:25 amOne of my dog's chips has migrated to her leg and is sensitive/painful to her. I'm going to have it removed. I'm thinking they will not reuse it just due to age and 6 years worth of banging around. So its as if I was starting over- are both Home again and Smart tag one time fees only? Is one better than the other if I have the choice?
If you message me the microchip number I’d be more than happy to tell you which company supplied it where it’s registered and what if any the fees are for different needs
Only one of the microchip registration sites charge additional fees annually, and I dont know of any group, rescue, or vet clinic that uses their chips... a few chip registration sites charge an annual fee if you need to change information, so move, change phone number, ect and your last annual membership has expired you'd have to pay it again to make changes. All of the most commonly used chip registration company like Home Again or Smart Tag which is what we use, there are never any additional fees. Just the one time upfront, plus whatever the microchip implanter charges. For our group, that would be just $10 or $12 if a min chip is needed, not a penny more, lifetime registration, free update, s no charge to transfer pet ownership if it comes to that.
All registers I know of currently register for life of the dog/chip.Charles L. Cotton wrote: ↑Wed Aug 21, 2019 9:41 amThanks! I can't recall the percentage, but must lost dogs that don't have an ID collar or chip don't make it back home. Also, some registrars have life registrations available. I think I paid around $65 for a lifetime registration.

Yes but the number of failed or rejected chips is so small, its a statistic anomaly at best..... Of course we had just that. I family fur kid I know was chipped correctly, as we did it.. That chip reported as it should almost daily as I chip check our pups when I leave the house to check our two scanners.
Thank you for making sure your pups have the best opportunity to make it home.
What city is that please.
