Recently some very happy families have found their lost pets safe and sound thanks to their microchips. Microchip implantation involves a simple injection under the skin between the shoulder blades of your pet. The chip is encoded with a number that any veterinarian or shelter can detect. The number remains on file at the manufactuers and contains all of the owners contact information which ensures the safe return of the pet. Here at the Brooklyn Veterinary Group we have had several happy reunions thanks to the microchip. Animals are spared the dreaded trip to the shelter and owners no longer have to spend days searching for their pets. With one simple click the owner is located and can be contacted immediately. If you are interested in this identification system please contact any of our Brooklyn Veterinary group Staff Members.
