Q. What does Pet Chip Bahrain do?

A. Pet Chip Bahrain offers a way to associate a microchip with an email address. The registry specifically stores the minimum amount of information, to protect your privacy. It aims to be the centralised source for people who find lost (microchipped) pets, in Bahrain, to attempt to reunite them with their owners.

There is no charge to use the service. You could microchip your pet at any veterinary clinic on the Island, and still use this service.

There are currently 6,809 microchip numbers recorded in the registry.

Q. Why do we need this?

A. There is a common misconception that the microchips implanted in pets contain items such as i) address and/or ii) GPS locator. This is not correct, and the vast majority of microchips are simply a method by which the animal can be uniquely identified. An example of when a pet would need to be identified is at the time of import to another country (e.g. Pet Passport Scheme).

If your pet is found by someone, and they take it to a vet to scan for a microchip, there is no way to determine the owner without a central registry.

There are many registries in other countries (e.g. USA or regions like the EU) - but these are of little use to those living in Bahrain.
