    DefaultAKC CAR

    Has anyone signed up for this? I have to say my vet made it kind of confusing, well it wasn't the vet but a staff person, when going over what I need to send in to get my micro chip working. I was given avid stuff and AKC Car stuff. They made it seem almost as if I had to do both. How does CAR, Companion Animal Recovery work? Is it just add your number to your AKC record?

    I've never heard of that. But then again, I guess they wouldn't have it in Canada.

    They are two separate programs as far as I am aware.

    Gabby has an AVID microchip and that is registered through AVID.

    AKC CAR is another tracking program with another recovery system- I did this also- they record the microchip # so that may be why she was mentioning it.

    I believe that the AKC CAR registers your microchip # in their file. So, like gabbys mom said, Tucker's microchip would be registered with AVID (or whichever) and with the AKC.

    So I guess if Tucker got lost and his microchip got scanned, whoever scanned him would have access to your contact number through both AVID and the AKC CAR.

    Henry has an ILP, and I think I just registered him for AKC CAR online... easy peasy.

    I have a homeagain chip and I have registered it with AKC CAR. It wasn't a big deal either way.
