Equine Chip Checker
With the advent of microchipping horses it is essential that if a horse is found or recovered then there needs to be a way to check the details of that animal. The Grassroots Organisation has now set up the EQUINE CHIP CHECKER. This is a Microchip/UELN search facility for equines registered with participating PIO’s using the Grassroots Systems software.
Currently there are 22 PIOs participating and a total of 202,703 (to date) equine records. The database is searched by entering a full microchip number or a full UELN. If a match is found, the issuing PIO is given, with the Alive/Dead status, colour, sex, DOB and microchip number. This information is available 24/7, 365 days a year and is an open access facility.
Current members will shortly be receiving forms and information on the Chipchecker.
