About petDetect

The Managing Director Dr.Peter Scott FRCVS

petDetect is a part of Biotope, a specialist veterinary practice dealing mainly with exotics and fish. The Managing Director Dr.Peter Scott FRCVS worked in high quality small animal practice for 8 years before following 'the dream' of working with zoos etc. Along the way he has worked with many exotic pets and continued with dogs by being the vet advising Disney and caring for lots of adults and puppies through 101 and 102 Dalmatians (he is listed in the credits), he is proud to have worked with some of the top animal trainers and animal coordinators in the world.

Over the years he was worked with educational aspects of the veterinary profession, various boards at RCVS. He was also a Council member of the Companion Animal Welfare Council for many years. In 2006 founded the Companion Animal Sector Council which works with all of the companion animals sectors, linking them with DEFRA. 

With his wife he has kept Norwich Terriers almost continually since 1978. Together they also founded Vetark Professional, a company supplying a range of products for exotic pets, this was sold in 2018 to Candioli.

Sadly Tovan have cancelled our distributorship in July 2021, and there is no smooth and easy way to source one of the other excellent microchips out there.
They have appointed another distributor who operates a different system, he is focussed on the database, we are pleased to have supported petlog (despite the issues this year, which were a conseqquence of improving security and all will be better).
We are holding stock and now selling at an additional discount - dont forget we already discount when you take numbers of microchips.






We support the Microchip Trade Association as full members and currently offer their training scheme through contracted trainers.

We firmly believe that the database should be operated independently (to have minimal advertising) and be funded such that whatever happens there is sufficient money to maintain the database as long as the dogs and cats live. That means that there needs to be at least 20 years funding security. For us, that means supporting petlog as our database of choice.

PetDetect's own products are kept in stock to make dispatch as fast as possible. Generally, orders placed before 12.00pm (Mon-Fri) will be dispatched First Class the same day.
Our new implanter-search service is free for participating implanters and free for owners to lookup.
