Changing microchip details of new dog when old owner not forthcoming!

We rehomed a dog about a month ago, in all the excitement when we picked her up we didn't get the paperwork for her microchip or her vaccination record. I have no reason to believe the previous owner was dodgy in anyway, however I am having huge difficulty now in obtaining the details from her so that we can change the microchip details. She just isn't answering texts etc.

Is there any way to do this without having her input?

For the microchip, just get your vet to scan their chip and give you the number, then you can check against the databases to see who they are logged with link here, then fill out the form of the appropriate one to register as the new owner.

If you can't get the vacc certificate, you might have to start again

As simple as that!! I shall get her to the vets forthwith to be scanned

Last one I did only took a couple of weeks to come through. It was with Petlog. They have to contact the previous owner to check they agree to the transfer, then they send you the new certificate.
