We’re pleased to offer the following services in our Chicago Veterinary Clinic:
Regular Health Examinations:
It is important to detect medical problems as early as possible, just as periodic checkups are reassuring, even if no problem exists. The preventative care that starts with a puppy or kitten will pay extra dividends once your companion becomes older.
Radiographic & Ultrasound Diagnostics:
These valuable, non-invasive and painless diagnostic tools enable us to study internal organs and skeletal systems without surgery.
We are equipped with an in-house laboratory that yields accurate and immediate results. Our capabilities include: complete blood counts, assorted chemistry panels, electrolyte panels, individual chemistry testing, urinalyses and cytology
We also offer Giardia, Parvo, Heartworm, Felv/FIV, pancreatitis and parasite screening. For specialty tests or pathology, we are able to refer specimens to outside laboratories that often generate results the next day.
We know that emergencies will occasionally happen. Therefore, if we are unavailable after hours, we recommend taking your pet to Chicago Veterinary Emergency Service, a state-of-the-art, full service emergency hospital.
Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.
