Pet rabbits can be just as easily microchipped as dogs and cats. Whether you rabbit is an indoor or outdoor bunny sadly there is always a chance that they may escape which is why it is important to ensure that they are microchipped. Reuniting rabbits with their owners can be very difficult if they are not microchipped. By choosing to microchip your rabbit you are significantly increasing the chances of being reunited should the worst happen and they escape.
Microchipping is a quick and easy injection that places a tiny microchip the size of a grain of rice under the skin of the scruff of the neck. There is no need for sedation or anaesthetic. Each microchip carries a unique number that can be read by a portable scanner and will allow veterinary surgeries, the authorities and rescue centres to contact you should your rabbit become lost.
Microchipping takes only a few minutes and lasts a lifetime; they are safe, practical and effective.
Once your rabbit has been microchipped if you move house or change your telephone number you must update your details on the microchipping database as soon as possible. You can only be reunited with your pet if your personal details are current and correct.
You can have your rabbit microchipped for free at Clarendon House as part of our Healthy Pet Club.
If you have any further questions regarding the benefits of microchipping your rabbit or if you would like to book an appointment to have your rabbit microchipped please contact the surgery directly and we will be happy to make an appointment.
