What can I do as a precaution so that my animal is found more quickly?

  • You are obliged to have your dog chipped and register it in the pet database (see more about dogs). You can also have your cat chipped (this is a legal requirement for breeding cats, for example). This means that your pet can be returned to you more quickly.
  • Always keep the data in the pet database up to date.
  • Enter your details on the animal's collar, for example using a dog tag.
  • Have your EU pet passport ready and make sure that it is complete.
