he is shivering, just lying on my lap, and not playing at all. is this normal?

No, not normal. Please call your vet asap.

thanks, he's woken up now and sems to have perked up a bit. the back of his neck is still vv tender though

its a big needle they stick in them though isnt it?

maybe he was just a little traumatised

my instinct says thats it. he is being uber affectionate though.

sounds like a touch of shock...no wonder, the chip needle is massive! Keep him warm and put a drop of Bachs Rescue Remedy in his water or milk if you have any in. That should do the trick but keep an eye on him, if his gums go pale or his temperature goes up get him straight back to the vets

have given him his warmer and one of his teething treats (has chamomile in it) poor little thing, it must have been terrifying!

totally fine now. little buggers trying to eat my shoelaces as we speak

So glad he is ok and the worry is over for you. Enjoy!
