Pet Microchipping at Oakton Animal Hospital in Elk Grove Village, IL

At Oakton Animal Hospital, we are happy to offer microchipping. Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It’s a tragedy that happens all too often.

But there is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure your pet’s safety and retrieval should they ever become lost. Microchipping is a standard procedure that implants a tiny chip underneath your pet’s fur. It is a painless and relatively fast procedure and is entirely safe.

What is Pet Microchipping?

Pet microchipping is a simple yet highly effective procedure that involves implanting a tiny microchip under your pet’s skin. This microchip contains a unique identification number that can be scanned by a veterinarian or animal shelter if your pet is lost. The process is quick, painless, and completely safe for your pet.

When to Microchip Your Pet

Microchipping your pet is a proactive step in ensuring their safety and well-being. We recommend microchipping for pets of all ages, including puppies and kittens. However, it’s never too late to microchip your pet, so even if they’re older, it’s still a valuable investment in their safety.

Our Pet Microchipping Services

At Oakton Animal Hospital, our experienced veterinarians perform pet microchipping with precision and care. We use the latest microchip technology to ensure reliable identification and provide personalized attention to each pet. We aim to make the microchipping process as stress-free as possible for you and your furry companion.

The Benefits of Pet Microchipping

Permanent Identification

Unlike collars and tags that can get lost or removed, a microchip provides permanent identification for your pet, ensuring they can be reunited with you even if their collar is lost.

Swift Reunions

Microchips significantly increase the chances of your lost pet being reunited with you quickly and safely. Animal shelters and veterinary clinics routinely scan lost pets for microchips, allowing them to contact you promptly.

Global Recognition

Microchips have universal recognition, meaning they can be read by scanners worldwide. This is especially beneficial if you travel with your pet or if they become lost far from home.
