Register For HomeAgain Microchips

Back on Track: Don't Forget to Register Those Microchips

Though a bit controversial to some pet owners, my pooch has his very own microchip in addition to a regular ID tag with his name and my number. I was responsible enough to set North up with HomeAgain, but did I update my address after our move in June? Umm, no. Oops. Then, this sad case over on Fully Vetted reminded me that not only was my oversight common, some people don't realize that simply getting fitted isn't enough — it needs to be registered online with your contact info for the whole home again part to work!

Sure, North's microchip still had my current phone number and email address so, in reality, not a huge deal, but let this be a reminder to all of you. Take a minute and log in to the website for your pet's ID service and make sure it has your most recent address, phone number, and email on file. Better to be safe now, than to be sorry later!
