Microchipping: Germantown Veterinarian
Microchipping may provide a valuable service to a pet owner, bringing peace of mind in knowing that their pet will be returned home safely if he or she is ever lost or runs away. A tiny electronic device is implanted (painlessly and easily) under your pet's skin and stays there for life. If your pet is ever lost, the microchip contains information that will help ensure your pet's safe return home. At Little Seneca Animal Hospital, LLC, we offer microchipping for pets throughout Germantown, Maryland and the surrounding areas and will be happy to discuss this option with you.
Advantages of Microchipping
A microchip is an extremely small electronic device that is approximately the size and shape of a grain of rice and contains specific information about a pet and owner. It is implanted beneath a pet's skin, usually between the shoulder blades, and remains there for life. Should your pet become lost, most veterinarians and animal shelters in the Germantown area have electronic scanners to detect and read implanted microchips. The scan will reveal a unique number that enables the vet or shelter to look up information about you and your pet in the national pet registry so you can be contacted and then reunited with your lost animal.
