What Our Clients Are Saying
I've been going here for as long as I can remember. Very nice staff and facility. I trust them with all my pets. They seem to get very busy though so have patience.
They were very informative and helpful. I was in and out. My girls are all up to date and I was given their upcoming schedule. I am officially transferring them. This was them all alert on the way and the anxiety drained them on the way home.
The most clean vet you will ever see! The staff is friendly and understanding and won't cut corners for your lil furry baby. It's worth the drive to Munster from Illinois for this vet!!
They were excellent. My wife and I picked up a stray in the middle of I 65. We brought her here for a checkup. They got us right in and the groomer’s found a spot to get her in and removed over 30 ticks. I would highly recommend them.
