PLEASE NOTE: YOU WILL NEED TO PURCHASE A PETSCANNER SEPARATELY. PHONES ARE NOT PHYSICALLY CAPABLE OF SCANNING PET MICROCHIPS

PetScanner - Find. Scan. Reunite.

Instantly identify the owner of any microchipped animal by simply scanning them with the world's lowest cost pet microchip reader/pet scanner, combined with a smartphone app.

What is PetScanner?

PetScanner is a smart, revolutionary way to store and share pet owner information, allowing you the control of your pet’s welfare like never before. PetScanner is the world's lowest cost microchip reader/pet scanner directly connected to a DEFRA compliant pet database via your smartphone, that finally allows everyone to scan and identify pets. Our patent pending system allows you to:

- Use our microchip reader/pet scanner to scan & identify any pet with a microchip and instantly contact their owner
- Receive an instant notification of when and where your pet is scanned
- Receive an instant notification if your pet’s microchip is searched on any other database
- Log and view lost and stolen pets
- Re-home previously owned or homeless pets


----- Lost Pets -----
Thousands of pets go missing every year. Devastatingly, 1 in 8 of lost dogs that remain unclaimed, face the threat of being put down due to their owners not updating their contact details. PetScanner is free to update you or your pet's details, ensuring you can always be reunited with your pet should they become lost.

----- Stolen Pets -----
Around 60 dogs are stolen every week, with only 1 in 5 dogs ever being recovered. PetScanner avoids fraudsters using fake documents that show a false microchip number so you can ensure you are buying from a responsible breeder.

----- General Identification -----
Thousands of our pets are involved in accidents every year and we may not know immediately when or where these accidents have occurred. With PetScanner, anyone can scan the microchip of your pet, notifying you immediately of your pets whereabouts with the contact details of who scanned the microchip.
