The innovative Halo microchip scanner, available for purchase here at VioVet online pet store, has revolutionised the system of canine and feline identification. Unlike various competitors, this unique scanner is fully rechargeable via USB for your convenience and operates within a 120 cm radius of a microchip.

The lightweight, ergonomically designed scanner is practical for travel; having your own system to identify your dog or cat is useful when returning from abroad, as if your dog cannot be identified otherwise, it is likely to be quarantined. The Halo scanner is installed with automatic technology for recognising the unique microchip of an animal, immediately identifying if it has been registered as missing, helping to return it to its rightful owner. The Halo comes with a 1 year manufacturers warranty.

Very lightweight and easy to handle. Doesn't take up much room in my work bag. I like the fact that I can sync it with the main Angel Scanner app to keep it updated.

Mrs Rottweiler

Does the scanner give just the number of the chip or owners details aswell please ??

  • VioVet Staff


Thank you for getting in touch.

The Halo will display the microchip number of the animal being scanned. It will also - if used with the Scanner Angel software - display if the animal has been reported as missing to the Scanner Angel system. It will not display owner contact details as this would be a breach of the data protection laws as owner information is held confidentially by the registration databases such as PetLog and is restricted to authorised persons such as the police, vets and dog wardens.

Hope that helps,

The scanner works well for all standard microchips in Europe and North America.
