Just picked up a new dog this weekend, and have been told she was micro-chipped but didnt have any details recorded etc at the time.

So we want to get her chip updated with our details but I cant find anywhere online how to go about this - all the council sites say "get your dog chipped", but dosent actually say how to get the details changed/updated for new owners.

We have no idea what the chip # is........

Do we just take her into a vet and they can scan her or is it only certain vets that do the chipping etc ?

Previous dog didnt need to be chipped so havent done this before at all :)

TIA

Pretty uncommon scenario I would think. But I would expect both vets and the council would have a scanner which will tell you the chip number... I'd give your vet a quick ring and ask if they'd mind quickly running their scanner over him/her.

Or Animal Control. I was their last night getting a Dog Licence which also reduces your yearly Redo Fees by at least $20.

Where are you based? The vet will need a copy of the microchip details, however by law it is the council that keep the database updated. The chip stores no details other than the number, its the database that has your details. Where did you get the dog from? If they have microchipped then they should be passing on the details!

And to answer your question, if all else fails you will have to go to the vet and get the number from their scanner!

Im on the Shore in Auckland but the dog has had bit of travelling history from what I gather (we picked her up from Whitianga) :) So tracking down original details could prove troublesome. Shes got to go into vets for bits 'n bobs anyway, so will query them about it.

The vets will be able to give you the ID number and tell you which registry it is for (I think there are two).

Correct, there's usually a local council one as well as the national database.
