Talk to our Veterinarian in Brooklyn About Pet Microchipping

Your veterinarian in Brooklyn would be happy to help you learn more about pet microchipping. At Town & Country Animal Hospital, we routinely microchip young pets to ensure they can be found again if they run away, escape, slip their leash or otherwise get lost. Make us your trusted veterinarian for help with microchipping and other health-related matters.

What Is Pet Microchipping?

Pet microchipping, as the name suggests, is a process of inserting a microchip under your pet’s skin. The chip is about the size of a grain of rice and contains an ID code unique to your animal. When a lost pet gets brought to an animal shelter or vet’s office, the chip can be scanned to determine whom the pet belongs to. If you want the greatest chance of finding your animal, pet microchipping is the way to go.

When to Get Your Pet Microchipped

Pets can be microchipped at a young age. Depending on where you get your animal, they may already have a microchip, so you can ask your vet to scan for it and see. Otherwise, you can microchip your animal when they’re still puppies and kittens – as young as 4 weeks old. The insertion does not hurt, and your pet will not feel it once it is implanted.
