  • Microchipping

If your rabbit was ever to escape from their hutch or dig their way out of your garden and become lost – microchipping can help to reunite you both.

The microchip is easily inserted under the skin on the scruff of the neck, just like an injection. It is approximately the size of a large grain of rice and lasts for life.

Each chip has a unique number to which yours and your pets’ details are associated. These details are then stored on a national database.

When lost if your rabbit was to be taken to a veterinary practice or an animal charity centre etc the staff would be able to use a special scanner to read your rabbits chip, locate your details and happily reunite you both!
