Microchipping

dreamstime 2830302Rabbits can be microchipped.

Microchipping is a very inexpensive and simple way of permanent identification for any pet.  It is a quick and painless procedure and will help to ensure the safe return of your rabbit should he/she decide to hop out of the garden to explore.

Your vet will inject a tiny microchip (about the size of a grain of rice) under the loose skin of your pet's neck, which will give your pet his own personal identification number.   It's quick, painless and very safe.

Should your pet stray and get handed in to a veterinary surgery, animal welfare group, the police or local authority, they have special hand held scanners that can detect and "read" the information on the microchips.

After checking your pet's unique number against the national database and identifying him as yours, you will be reunited without further delay.
