Microchipping is a permanent ID system, which involves a chip, no bigger than a grain of rice being implanted under the skin of your pet’s scruff. If your rabbit was ever to escape their hutch and dig their way out of your garden, this chip will allow vets to find your details and get in contact with you.


Each and every microchip has a unique number, which can be read by a portable scanner, which most vets, including all four Blythwood Vets branches, local authorities and rescue homes have access to; ensuring your contact information can be easily obtained from the central microchipping database when needed. Once your rabbit has been scanned and identified through its microchip, just one phone call could reunite you with your pet. 


Microchipping for Rabbits

Many people don't realise that microchipping is not only for dogs, but also for cats, ferrets, rabbits, snakes, parrot, tortoises and horses and comes highly recommended for all these animals by the team at Blythwood Vets. 


Something that surprises many pet owners is that sedation is not actually necessary for the implantation of the microchip as this procedure causes only minimal discomfort and can even be done in a routine consultation.


And don't worry if you can't remember (or know) whether your pet is microchipped. It is very easy for a member of our team at one of our Blythwood Vets branches to arrange to check for a microchip using a scanner. Rest assured, we all always scan your pet and check that an animal hasn’t already got a working microchip before implanting a new one. 


At the time of your appointment, you will be asked to complete a registration form, from which your details are then submitted to a national database by a Blythwood Vets team member. Your contact details are kept on the database for your pet’s lifetime, and the fees for this are included in the service cost of implantation. For this reason, it is important to update any changes to your contact details as soon as possible to ensure that you can be reunited with your pet if they are ever lost.

At Blythwood Vets we have four practices and serve the North-West London area. Our four branches are in Middlesex, Bushey, Northwood, and Stanmore. So book an appointment at your local branch today or get in touch to speak with one of our friendly team members and find out more!
