    Hey everyone!

    I recently moved to Chicago from London, and brought my lovely cat Bo with me. He's been microchipped since he was a kitten, and his microchip number, along with our details, is registered on PetLog in the UK. I want to update our address now that we have moved, but have realised there seems to be another microchip directory here in the US. Does anyone know how I'd go about registering him with the appropriate body (or, is there an international network of databases meaning I just need to update my UK profile)?

    Thanks so much in advance!

    All our international chips we register as a new entry to the local database.

    You will need to register the chip with the US database, if their are several find out which is the biggest and most well known and go for them. It's usually pretty simple to register a chip with a new database, normally there is a form to complete.
    Personally, for completeness I'd also update the details on Petlog.
