Microchip Pet Identification
A lost pet is a frightening situation with often devastating consequences. This is why the team at Forest Glen Animal Hospital considers the PetLink microchip pet identification system a fundamental way to protect your pet and an important part of responsible pet ownership. Each microchip registers the animal with a unique identification number, which is filed in a database with your contact information. The contact information can be updated at any time, and it is important to remember to do so whenever your information changes. If your pet is lost, the microchip can be scanned by animal control officers, at shelters and at veterinary hospitals in the U.S. and in many foreign countries.
This safe, reliable and permanent pet identification takes less than 10 seconds to implant and can save you and your pet days, weeks or more of fear and anguish.
Your Veterinary Pharmacy
When it comes to prescription medications, accurate dosage and administration is of the utmost importance. As your pet’s prescribing veterinarian, you can trust that when you fill prescriptions at our pharmacy your pet will receive the right medication, at the right dose, in the right form as quickly as possible. We will also provide you with detailed instructions on the medication’s use, discuss any side effects or interactions and even give your pet the first dose if possible. You can also feel confident all the medications we dispense were obtained from safe, reliable sources and stored under the right conditions.
Ensuring you have convenient, timely access to competitively priced medications and other pet care products is an important aspect of our veterinary practice. Refills are easy, too. Simply give us a call at (773) 283-2443.
For many pet owners, even thinking about their pet's final days is difficult and emotional. We encourage you to talk with our veterinary healthcare team about end-of-life issues before they become an urgent matter. Find out about your options, including our cremation and grief counseling services, make key decisions ahead of time and ask us to add this information to your pet's record. We also offer at-home euthanasia. Being at home, surrounded by loving and familiar faces, is a comfort to you and your pet and an important aspect of our veterinary services.
Taking the time to plan, as challenging as it may be, will lessen the confusion and stress for you and your pet. In the days, weeks, or months leading up to your pet's final day, you can rely on our veterinary team to provide you the support you need to make informed choices each step of the way. All of us at Forest Glen Animal Hospital do our best to help you prepare for these important issues with the compassion and sensitivity they require.
