Why it’s important to have your rabbit microchipped at Cat & Rabbit Clinic

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 Cat & Rabbit Care  Clinic. 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 01604 478888 and we’ll be happy to help.

As the COVID-19 situation evolves, we are continually reviewing the  provision of our services. Please call us to find out how we can help.
