DNA Profiling


The DNA profile is the ultimate in individual identification and offers a 'tamper-proof' means of identity. The profile need only be produced once and the DNA sample used to produce it can be stored as a permanent DNA record throughout the dog's life. Identification could be essential in a number of instances. For example, the availability of a profile could be used to identify an animal that may have been lost or stolen, and subsequently recovered.

 The profile could also be used to check the authenticity of a DNA sample being used to screen for the presence of disease-causing genes. Many such tests are being developed and it would be invaluable to be able to verify that the correct dog's DNA is being tested for the presence of the deleterious gene. Repeating the DNA profile on the same sample of DNA being used to carry out the gene test would be straightforward and prove conclusively that the correct animal is being tested.

Microchipping provides a permanent, inexpensive form of identification that cannot be lost, altered, or intentionally removed. The process is quick and painless and can help ensure a happy reunion.

Microchips are no bigger than a grain of rice and are inserted in the scruff of the pet’s neck. Each microchip has a unique identification number that is never duplicated. Once implanted it can be scanned to find the details of the pet’s home and owner.

Petlog has a database of over 3 million animals residing in the UK. The most common being dogs and cats… but there are also rabbits, ferrets, horses, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, even an elephant!!

Once implanted with a microchip that is part of the scheme, your pet’s details will be added to the database. This enables you to be traced by an authorised body such as an animal warden who can scan your pet and read the microchip number. If your pet is lost while you are travelling in Europe, you can still be traced as Petlog is the UK member of the European Pet Network.
