Saturday 27th Match 2021 – Petlog Guidance
The microchip details of some Erin Hounds’ dogs are on Petlog’s records.
We are aware of issues Petlog are currently experiencing due to the launch of their upgraded database.
We can reassure you that your dog’s details have not disappeared and you do not need to contact Petlog. If your dog is lost or found the necessary authorised agents (the Police, Dog Wardens, Vets etc) will have access to their microchip information.
Excess calls to Petlog will hamper organisations’ ability to contact Petlog so please avoid contacting them unnecessarily.
Your dog’s safety is of paramount importance and we appreciate your concerns but the situation will be rectified soon and we will update you.
The Erin Hounds Team
Changing your Erin Hound’s microchip into your details:
Legally, a dog must be microchipped to its owner (keeper). To ensure you are complying with the law follow the specific guidance below, according to when your dog was adopted from Erin hounds. Remember that you are wholly responsible for updating your details with the chip company if later you move.
Currently your hound will be microchipped to Erin Hounds, so please be assured that in the case of your dog going missing that the chip companies and all the relevant organisations such as the Police, dog wardens, council dog pounds and veterinary practices will have access to our contact details.
For Erin Hounds’ dogs adopted from 01/01/15 onwards – follow these 3 steps and we will make changes on your behalf and inform you when you should receive your new certificate .
