petDetect are the UK's suppliers of the renowned Trovan microchips with a veterinary background. We supply zoos, vets and trained implanters with top-quality tools and knowledge to ensure the smoothest procedure for every animal.
A division of Biotope: specialist veterinary consultancy, petDetect began supplying Trovan microchips to the UK market in 2014 when our predecessors stepped down after 14 successful years in the business. The Managing Director was one of the first vets to perform the microchipping procedure on animals in the UK and has completed the procedure on a significant variety of species.
We offer our clients our knowledge, experience and understanding as it is our belief that this leads to the best implanters. We constantly update our website with the latest information from the veterinary industry, helpful tips from our experience and anything we feel is of benefit along the way. You can reassure your clients that being microchipped by a petDetect implanter is a mark of a quality product and service.
|petDetect are members of the Microchip Trade Association (MTA) who represent microchip suppliers and manufacturers in the UK and promote standards of excellence across the industry.
Biotope was established in 1991 by Managing Director Dr. Peter Scott FRCVS. His career has lead to a wealth of experience with all animals, from working in a high-quality small animal practice to exotic pets and zoos. To this day he continues to work with fish farms and in consultancy. Over the years Peter (younger version to the right!) has also worked with many performing animals in film and television - he was responsible for the care and welfare of the animals in Link, Fierce Creatures, 101 Dalmatians and 102 Dalmatians, Fly Boys and Harry Potter plus countless TV ads.
We are strong supporters of animal welfare as Peter has been very active in the promotion and development of the current high standards. He has worked with PAWSI on developing standards for training of performing animals, Companion Animal Welfare Council (CAWC) as a council member, with the DEFRA England Implementation Group in recent years and is currently Chair of the Companion Animal Sector Council (CASC).
