Rabbit microchipping is the process of a microchip, about the size of a rice grain, permanently inserted beneath your pet's skin.
Almost all veterinarians, including Spinney Veterinary clinics, local authorities, and rescue homes, have access to portable scanners that can read the unique number on each microchip. This makes it possible to retrieve your contact information from the central microchipping database with ease. You may reunite with your pet with just a phone call once they have been scanned and recognised by their microchip. This is the main advantage of rabbit microchipping.
Rabbit Microchipping Procedure
The implantation of the microchip is a minimally uncomfortable operation that may be completed during a standard consultation, therefore sedation is not required. Furthermore, don't panic if you can't remember or know if your pet is microchipped; utilising a scanner to check for a microchip is a fairly simple process. We can set up a staff member at one of our Spinney Vets locations to scan your pet and look for a functional chip. Please be certain that before implanting a new microchip, we always make sure the animal hasn't already received one.
Rabbit Microchipping at Spinney Vets
You will be required to fill out a registration form at the time of the rabbit microchipping procedure, after which a member of the Spinney Vets team will upload your information to a national database. The cost of implantation includes the storage of your rabbit's information in the database for the duration of their life.
Any changes to your contact information should be updated as soon as possible. Because all of Spinney Vets' microchips meet International Standard (ISO) requirements, they can be used in the Pet Passport programme and detected by scanners overseas.
To obtain additional information, kindly contact the branch closest to your residence and let them know what assistance you need.
Benefits of Rabbit Microchipping:
Identification and Ownership Verification: Rabbit microchipping offers a permanent and distinctive means of identification in the event that a rabbit becomes lost. Reuniting a rabbit with its family can be facilitated by animal shelters, veterinarians, and animal control authorities scanning the microchip to get the owner's contact details.
Proof of Ownership: Rabbit microchipping can be used as unquestionable evidence of ownership in situations involving legal issues or the necessity to confirm ownership. This can be important in cases where there can be disagreements regarding who is the true owner of the rabbit.
Quick and Painless Procedure: A standard routine visit can include the quick and typically painless microchipping procedure. Underneath the skin, between the shoulder blades, is a tiny implant.
