Where can I purchase a Turvasiru for my pet?
The Turvasiru service, including microchip installation, is currently offered by animal welfare associations and veterinarians.

Any animal with any microchip can be signed up for the Turvasiru service!
Will Turvasiru bring my lost friend back?
What exactly happens if my pet is lost and then found? Usually animals that have been relocated are delivered to an animal shelter, a veterinarian's clinic, animal welfare associations or the authorities, who are then able to identify the pet with the chip number. The animal is identified via a small microchip inserted beneath its skin. The chip will only contain the animal’s unique chip number. With the help of Turvasiru’s online services, the authorities and animal shelters are able to locate the pet owner’s contact information with the chip number, enabling them to return the lost friend to its home.
