Alternatively, if you’re only looking to complete your Petlog microchip address and no others, you can do so by contacting the database directly, either online or by phone.
If you want to change your Petlog details online, you will need to log into your online account and fill in the Petlog change of address form. Or, if you would prefer to speak to someone about your Petlog change of address, you can give them a call on 01296 336 579.
You should note that Petlog can only speak to the registered keeper on the account supplied at the point of microchipping.
If your pet’s microchip is registered with the Petlog database, then it is essential that you remember to update your Petlog details when moving house. This is for a number of reasons.
First, it is now law to have your dog microchipped by the age of 8 weeks and have the correct details registered with the relevant database. If your dog is found and your contact details are out of date, you could receive a hefty fine.
Second, microchipping is only effective if you keep your Petlog contact details up to date. Getting in touch with you if your dog goes missing will be much more difficult if the incorrect address is registered.
So, given that keeping your microchip details up to date is so essential, do you have to pay to change your address on Petlog?
Yes, you do have to pay to change your address with Petlog. However, how much it costs will depend on which payment option you opt for.
Each Petlog microchip change of address incurs an administrative fee of £10 unless at least one of your pets is upgraded to Petlog Premium, in which case there is no charge. In other words, your Petlog Premium change of address is free once you’ve paid the initial upfront cost of £19.95.
So, if you opt for the Petlog Premium plan, you can update your microchip details as many times as you like throughout the lifetime of your pet. You can choose to upgrade to Petlog Premium by:
The cost paid when completing your Petlog microchip change of address includes the cost of the microchip itself, the implanter’s time, and the registration on a government-approved database for the lifetime of the pet.
Additionally, a small percentage of this fee contributes to the database services which includes a 24/7 reunification service for lost and found pets.
If your pet is going to a new home, you will need to transfer keepership to the new owner. To do this, you will need to locate your pet within your online Petlog account and start the transfer of keepership process.
Once done, the new owner will receive details to create their own account and complete the process. The pet will remain visible in your Petlog account until the new keeper has completed the transfer.
If your Petlog microchipped pet has gone missing, you should update Petlog as soon as possible by following these steps:
If, for some reason, you can’t notify us of your missing pet through your online account, you can call Petlog on 01296 737600.
Once your pet has been marked as lost, animal professionals will see these details on your record if they find your pet.
So, now you know how important it is to complete your Petlog microchip change of address, hopefully you will remember to do so when you come to move house.
There are two ways you can update your Petlog microchip details: using SlothMove’s online change of address service, or by contacting the Petlog database directly.
