Trial this weekend... no microchip scanner!

Hey everyone,

I'm a little nervous as is, and just remembered that the club I'll be trialing in won't have a microchip scanner! My vet can only lend it out for about an hour and only if the vet tech allows it that day. Any ideas? I could really use some ideas here... What do you usually do? Based on the prices for these **** things I doubt everyone has one of their own!

Could really use some advice, thanks

Is there a local shelter you might be able to 'rent' one out from?

I would call around to local clubs and ask if anyone from those clubs will have one on hand that would work for you. Maybe pay a small fee for using it?

Hey everyone,

Ok, I was able to actually rent one from Avid (my dog's chip maker).

Just wanted to post this in case someone else happens to run into this number.

I called avid at 18003362843 and it's $30 per month to use. They do "charge" you like $200 or so but that is just a deposit that gets refunded when you return the chip.

Thanks for the advice everyone, next time I'll be better prepared.

Will you get it in time? Do you have to pay to have it shipped and returned? Good luck in the trial!!

Chances are that someone would have a reader you could use, not everyone supplies their own, because the club may have that covered when preparing for trials. One other thing, make sure your dog is cool with a reader before you go. And that the chip is readable..or find where it has migrated. I couldn't read Karlo's on a universal.
I'll need to deal w/ that when we trial if the tat isn't enough to ID.
