Your pet is a beloved member of your family, and the thought of anything happening to them is no doubt terrible. While you can’t prevent every outcome in life, you can have a microchip installed to increase your chances of finding your animal if they become lost. This common practice has helped innumerable pet owners find their furry loved ones and is a move you should make today.
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.
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.
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.
Our veterinarians and staff are committed to providing the highest quality treatment to your pet in a relaxed environment. Our founding veterinarian, Dr. Pamella Dendtler, and our newest veterinarian Dr. Robert Gooden are highly skilled and bring a complementary realm of experiences to each animal hospital. We serve Clinton Hill, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Williamsburg, Fort Greene, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn Heights, Vinegar Hill, Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, Prospect Heights, Bushwick and Park Slope, and would be delighted to serve you as well.

To Dr Dendtler and Staff, I cant begin to tell you how impressed I am with the loving care you have given to my cat Baxter, before and after the much needed surgery. Baxter is so pleased with the outcome; he goes around purring all day.
Dear Pamella, We want to thank all of you so much, not only for the loving care and consideration you showed us last Thursday when we had to say goodbye to Gericho but also for all the years of check-ups and other crisis' that we went through with him. We know it was your good efforts that allowed him to live a full and vigorous 16 years that gave us so much pleasure. Please know that we have always found your staff to be so courteous and helpful all these years.
Dear Dr. Dendtler, You were very thorough and caring in treating Buddy. You explained clearly how to protect my dog. I have been to many clinics but you are the best. You were very professional and compassionate. Buddy and I are very grateful. Thanks ever so much to you and your staff.
Hi Dr Dendtler, Thank you so very much for fixing my eye. I can see clearly now…I can see all obstacles in my way! Love Vernell R
