Scanning pets and getting the microchip number is included with your PetScanner at no additional cost!
Free scanning: If the pet has a FDX-B microchip implanted, PetScanner will be able to read the microchip and display the chip number alongside these 3 possible scenarios when you scan a pet:
If it is registered with PetScanner, it will display the contact details of the owner.
If it is registered elsewhere, we will display which database holds information about that chip number alongside with the contact information for that database.
If it is not registered with any database or we can not find it, it will only display the chip number
Optional registration & PetScanner Pet Protection:
When a pet is not yet registered with PetScanner it will prompt you with the option to register it with us so you can protect your pet with our system (optional):
We offer the lowest cost DEFRA-compliant microchip registration at just 2.99 (one-off payment for one pet) which allows you to update your contact and address details for FREE during the lifetime of your pet and gives you the ability to be contacted by anyone that physically scans your pet if lost or stolen.
We also offer PetScanner Pet Protection - the most advanced microchip protection for your pet. This gives you many benefits that include receiving an instant notification when your pet's chip has been scanned with a PetScanner, and also if they have been searched on any other DEFRA-compliant chip lookup tool. Our PetScanner Pet Protection starts from just 0.99 per month.

Ratings and Reviews
Great company terrible app
Pet scanner is great, cheap and reliable. The app itself is awful, pictures have uploaded sideways cannot delete or upload a different photo. Constantly crashing and is in need of a serious update.
Great idea and very reasonably priced. Still have some teething problems with the iOS app but customer service is awesome. If you have any problems go through FB messenger to contact and they reply almost instantly. Overall 👍
Terrible App & Website
So you enter details such as Alley Cat and the website lists your cat as Abyssinian. They don’t have colours for Tabby cats. Enter a date of birth and the website and app changes it to 1970.
You have to pay individually for each microchip you register rather than placing them in a basket for one finalized payment.
Really poor performance considering you are charging.
