The other reason to update the microchip is if a dog goes to a different owner.
Maybe your dog outlives you and you have it in your will that your sister gets him after you’re gone.
How to update First things first — microchips never get taken out, and the people who put it in your dog usually don’t have anything to do with updating it. Essentially, you’re calling the number to turn the chip on. If you don’t know the manufacturer, you can look it up at the American Animal Hospital Association website.
