Chicago Cat Clinic
Our veterinary team strongly recommends having your cat microchipped. This offers a practical way to locate your feline if they are missing from home.
Complete Microchipping Services
For Your Beloved Feline Friend
Feline microchipping is a permanent form of identification for your cat. A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and is injected under the skin between the shoulder blades. The microchip contains a unique ID number that can be read by a scanner. If your cat is lost, a shelter or veterinary clinic can scan the microchip and contact you to reunite you with your pet. Feline microchipping is a quick and relatively painless procedure that could save your cat’s life.
At Chicago Cat Clinic, we offer feline microchipping services. We use only the highest quality microchips and our experienced veterinary staff will ensure that the microchip is properly injected. Schedule an appointment online for your cat today!
3 Benefits of Microchipping
Important Factors to Consider:
It simply takes a few seconds to implant a microchip in your cat, and the chip itself is very little. Your cat may have momentary mild discomfort after the injection, but often there are no negative side effects. Both you and your buddy will find this method to be quick and simple.
Your Own Peace Of Mind
Even if you take precautions to keep your cat inside, other people might not. Cats with microchips are significantly more likely to be located and securely returned home than those with ID tags only or no other form of identification, which can easily come off or be removed.
Your cat’s identification won’t be removed, stolen, lost, or otherwise compromised if it has a microchip. Implantation gives a lifetime answer to finding your missing or stolen loved one, despite the fact that the chip’s position may change with age.

Your newly microchipped cat will be registered with HomeAgain for a full year. The annual membership has a number of advantages, such as proactive outreach to neighborhood PetRescuer volunteers, 24/7 medical helpline, medical insurance for lost cats, travel support for discovered cats, and more.

The Process: Before, During & After
We Are Often Asked:
Should I Microchip My Indoor Cat?
Yes! Even if you have an indoor-only cat, we all know our cats can be sneaky. Also, visitors to your home may not be as careful as you. Microchipping means permanent identification for your feline should they become lost.
