    Default Anyone microchipped their buns?

    Im thinking about getting both buns chipped & wondered if anyone on here has done this?

    Also, would a rescue/vet scan think to scan a rabbit for a microchip?

    Theres a note up in my vets that say that 1 rabbit a week is handed into them and 99% of them arent microchipped - from that, i guess they check.

    I was wondering on whether to get mine done too.

    Oh thats so sad! Id be distraught if I lost my buns, atleast if they were chipped Id have a chance of getting them back.

    Yup both mine done Quick injection at a routine check-up, slightly larger needle than a vaccination so might sting bunny for a split second but then it is all over and you have peace of mind.

    Some vets and RSPCA's scan and some don't.

    One of mine is chipped as she came from RSPCA but the other two aren't. the three of them are house rabbits but when we move I want them to be able to play in a garden too so I will have the other two chipped then. The RSPCA def check if buns are chipped

    Bella and Oscar are chipped, Dolly will be done in Feb with her next jab...often if you do more than one you may get discount of 5 each bun....I did ...or be cheeky and ask how much it is for microchip, wait for the price and say if I get both of them done now do I get discount ...don't ask you don't get...and I think RSPCA do them for 10 so the vets do try with discounts for the custom.
