The PetLookup tool was developed to address a common problem Vets are having. If a Vet needs to search a microchip number for a lost animal brought to them, they need to search the 15 digit number in over 5 different registries to get the owner's details in order to notify him/her of their missing pet's location. This is a time-consuming process and could also be more error prone than typing in the microchip number only once to get the results.
The PetLookup tool addresses this issue by allowing the user to type in the microchip number only once and searching all of the available microchip suppliers' registries and spitting out the result.
Keeping your records updated regularly is crucial to the survival of your pet should it be lost or found and handed to a Vet or Welfare.
