Changing 'Chip' details from Germany to UK on Pets

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Ladies & Gents

    Having recently moved from BFG back to the UK, and working through the list of changing every address under the sun, l have an issue that l was hoping somone may be able to shed light on:

    Our Cat, adopted as a kitten in Germany and chipped from Tierheim (Tasso?) is registered to our old German address, however now in the UK clearly this needs to change if the Cat goes AWOL.

    Basic research has found differing answers, rechipping at a UK vet being the most dramatic but l'm guessing this isn't a new concept so has anyone else changed address on Dogs / Cats from BFG to UK, and if so, how?

    Some of the Chip recognition websites listed on Gooogle ironically do not recognise the chip, l was under the impression that it was EU wide but is it country only? The Cat sailed through (no pun intended) border control, so l wouldn't have thought this was the case?

    Thanks in advance

  2. My Dog was chipped in Germany. We contacted 'PetLog' who took the number and registered it with them. It only cost about £15.00.
  3. Cheers Legs. I will have a look.
  4. Don't bother mate, It's only a mobile shit machine anyway.
