What Is a Microchip Database?

A microchip database is a database for managing pet microchips, which are implanted in dogs and other pets as a way of identification. Once a person registers his pet, the information is accessible at the National Pet Microchip database.

Some services that allow pet owners to register their pets and update their pet's microchip information include Rfid-usa.org. The database enables the public to access microchip records for all pet owners countrywide to locate the registered owners in case of a lost pet. Additionally, users can leave a message for a lost pet owner. The public also can look up microchips on AAHA.org and Petmicrochiplookup.org to identify the registered owners or the microchip's manufacturer.
