Microchipping services

Did you know you can microchip a fuzzbutt in just the same way as you would a dog, cat, or rabbit for instance. In fact even Koi Carp can be chipped!!

And did you know that here at Blue Ferret Boarding, we offer microchipping as an add-on service while your fertles stay with us, or as a stand alone service? 

Well, We do!! All of our ferrets here at BFB are microchipped but why should you chip yours?

Well there are two main reasons: The first being for the reason of safety and well being of your fertle.

If your loved liquid furball were to get out and get lost (and we all know how nosey they can be), microchipping is good way of getting your ferret back, as vets SHOULD, and will if asked, scan for a microchip, as will all reputable Rescues. As long as the database details are kept up to date you are more likely to be reunited.

But my ferrets are indoor ferrets we hear you cry! Yes, but that’s even MORE reason to get them chipped. Outdoor ferrets and those who have been walked around their own neighbourhood will have a much better ‘scent map’ and be more likely to find their way home than those who have been indoor only, to whom every smell will be both exciting and terrifying in equal measure. 

The second reason for microchipping comes down to disputes over ownership, especially where a ferret has been found and the finder has kept the ferret or passed it on to new owners. While microchipping itself is not a legal form of ownership, chipping along with vet bills and similar paperwork would certainly help in any dispute over ownership, to help stop you being parted from your carpet shark, or to help you be reunited with your best buddy.

Ferret Microchipping

For only £10 per ferret you can have any or all of your ferrets microchipped while they stay here at the Blue Ferret Hotel, or with prior arrangement as a stand alone service without the need to board.

OUR MICROCHIPPER IS FULLY QUALIFIED AND REGISTERED.

Our microchipping service includes the microchip implant and registration with PeddyMark. You will receive a record of the microchip number which we strongly suggest you keep safe! 

We always scan for a chip before chipping!

Contact us if you have any queries regarding this service

A microchip is tiny chip that is implanted under the skin of an animal, normally between the shoulder blades. Each microchip carries a unique 15 digit number that can only be read by a special scanner.
This number is linked to an entry on a database that stores the animal’s information plus details of his or her keeper. If your pet is lost or stolen then this is one of the best ways of tracing him or her.
