Safeguard your rabbit with a microchip
May 7, 2020
You may think your rabbit is secure in your home and garden, but they are inquisitive creatures and their curiosity can get them into trouble.
What would you do if your rabbit got lost? It’s unlikely to be wearing a collar and name tag, so with nothing to identify it anyone finding your pet wouldn’t know who or where to return it to.
That’s why microchipping is as good an idea for rabbits as it is for cats and dogs. It’s a quick and easy procedure, as outlined here, and can be carried out when you bring your pet to Walton Lodge Vets. Simply contact us to make an appointment.
Microchips are tiny electronic devices that contain all the data needed to trace you if someone finds your lost pet. The chip is injected into the loose skin on your rabbit’s neck in a painless procedure that takes only seconds and costs very little.
Stored on the chip is a registration number which links to a database where all the details are kept to make it possible to trace you, including your name, address and contact number. The chip lasts the whole of your rabbit’s lifetime so if the unthinkable did happen, anyone finding your pet could get it scanned by a vet or animal shelter and ensure a speedy reunion.
To get your rabbit chipped simply make an appointment or if you have any further questions give us a call on 01202 747678 and we’ll be happy to help.
