Have you microchipped your dog?

Mine is a mixed-breed. So, I am not sure if I should go for microchipping. Smile

Re: [mochacappucino] Have you microchipped your dog?

Well, the microchip is to actually identify the owner of the dog..doesn't matter if its pure breed or not.

But for pure breeds, if they're registered I think it's compulsory.

So it's really up to you...

IMHO, i think it's a good idea..if your dog's lost and someone brought him to the vet/someone who has the device to check microchips..just check his microchip and they can contact you.

Re: [JolinG] Have you microchipped your dog?

hi,

think the price is quite okay mah.. u see, the microchip lasts forever wor.. quite a good price to pay. but for ur case... so many dogs... different story la :)) how much does it cost for scanning the chip???

i heard of some companies that do microchipping on dogs.. and that they'll add your dog's name into their database, ie, all vets in malaysia will have the name and records with them.. thus make searching a lost dog easier. have any idea about it??? :/ i want to get hunter microchipped.



regards,
hunter

Re: [hunter] Have you microchipped your dog?

I heard there are different brands for microchips. I wonder if we use the same in all of Malaysia?

Re: [hunter] Have you microchipped your dog?

oh gosh...Crazy yes microchip last forever n stuff
i think those vet who has the scanner to scan for the microchip shouldnt charge u to scan kwa...btw i dun think there is alota vet who has this scanner thing.
database on microchip here i dun think it contains owner names and all..perhaps somebody who is more experience in the microchipping business has some say on this.....
and in malaysia i dont think all vets have then name and records of owner with them....
here not that advanced yet lar
if not mistaken microchipping was only introduced a few years ago hereTongue
sorry lah li ping...dont know much bout it

Re: [minglmy] Have you microchipped your dog?

SmileHi,

As far as i know, we do not have the datbase thingy yet....what we can do with the microchipped no is taht we can check with MKA for the details but that too not really efficient coz if the new owner did not sign the transfer form then nothing much can be done n locatin the new owner is not a easy taskUnsure

U knowlahh...we live in M'sia where got so advance...even the scanner also not many ppl in PG has...what comes out from the scanner is the country code n number..that's allUnimpressed
