Throughout the month of September, MaxiZoo had a fantastic response to our Chip it, Check it campaign. Hundreds of pets have updated microchip information, but there are still many more that have chips with incorrect data.
Due to popular demand, Maxi Zoo will continue to check pets chips for FREE in all stores. Simply bring your pet in store, where our pet experts will scan their Microchip and send their details to Fido to be updated. The Fido database is the largest in Ireland, and is part of a European database. There are currently 333,000 units of microchip data in Ireland, and over 100,000 of this is incorrect. On average, 19 dogs per week end up in pounds WITHOUT a registered chip. By updating your pet’s microchip information, you can prevent your four legged friend meeting the same fate.
