Implanters in the Republic of Ireland
For implanters in the Republic of Ireland, petDetect offer registration with the Irish Kennel Club dog identification database, the IKC have been running a microchip database for over 10 years, and they allow for convenient dual registration of pedigree dogs onto both the pedigree register as well as a microchip database simply by completing one form. They are a DAFM compliant database, a full member of EuroPetNet and also allow the registration of non-pedigree dogs.
What database do you use in the Republic of Ireland?
Under the compulsory microchipping legislation for dogs introduced in the ROI, all databases storing details for microchips implanted in dogs must now be DAFM approved. Petlog are not a compliant database, and so we recommend the Irish Kennel Club database. They are DAFM compliant, have been operating a database for over 10 years, and allow the registration of both pedigree and non-pedigree dogs. Registration is carried out via paper forms which can be sent to the IKC.
