New collar tag pairs with smartphones for immediate identification

Microchip ID’s BuddiBadge has a QR code that is linked to the company’s registration system

Microchip ID is launching a new product that promises to make their BuddiID registry even more customizable and user-friendly than ever before. The registry also receives support from FirstVet through a unique partnership.

“Our team has been working in this space for over 30 years and we are passionate about creating a safer, healthier environment for pet parents and their pets.” That’s why we’ve included many benefits for BuddiID Microchip ID is partnering with FirstVet to register pets in the BuddiID registry and provide telehealth services to its customers, as well as sign up for FirstVet,” said Patrice Karvowski, president of BuddiID, in company edition.

The unique QR code on each registered pet’s BuddyBadge allows anyone with a smartphone to instantly identify lost animals. This ensures that these pets can be quickly and reliably identified and returned to their owners even when a microchip reader is not available. The QR code on the tag is permanently linked to the BuddiID microchip registration. Registration covers the pet’s lifetime and provides double protection should it ever become separated from its owner.

In addition, the BuddiID database allows pet owners to designate trusted locations — such as a neighbor’s house or the vet’s office — as a SafePlace, so the pet can be easily brought to the nearest one if the pet owner is unavailable. A free SearchALERT can be run as soon as a pet goes missing, which will automatically tag the pet’s microchip in the BuddiID database and national search tool.


BuddiID is currently showing its new collar at the 2023 North American Veterinary Association Veterinary Meeting and Expo (NAWA) in Orlando, Florida, through January 18. The company offers product demonstrations and samples in the exhibit hall, booth 607.

FirstVet will provide a 5-step healthy pet screening to all pet parents registered in the BuddiID database who have signed up to FirstVet. The examination will be a 15-minute consultation with a licensed veterinarian designed to cover 5 key areas. They include recommendations for oral health, skin and coat, ear and buttocks, food, movement and mobility. A virtual telehealth evaluation will help pet parents understand the importance of regular vet visits, as well as prepare new pet parents on what to keep in mind when it comes to caring for their pets.
