How to update First things first — microchips never get taken out, and the people who put it in your dog usually don’t have anything to do with updating it. Essentially, you’re calling the number to turn the chip on. If you don’t know the manufacturer, you can look it up at the American Animal Hospital Association website.When you need to update any information on the chip, you have to call this same number, give them the ID, and then tell them what’s changed. If you’d prefer not to make the update by phone, you can also do so online with many microchip manufacturers, such as Avid, Microchip I. It’s also a smart idea to put your dog on the Found Animals Registry, a database that holds contact information for microchips of all kinds, regardless of the manufacturer.
