Providing Exceptional Care for West Suburban Chicago Pets
Our goal is to provide our clients and patients with the highest quality veterinary care. Moreover, our dedicated staff treats each patient with kindness and respect in a warm, friendly atmosphere. We understand and honor the bond that exists between our clients and their pets.
Carlson Animal Hospital has one of the most technically advanced group of animal doctors in the western Chicago suburbs. While skilled in everyday wellness and preventive care, we are also known as the "go-to" hospital for more challenging or complex conditions. We routinely work with and consult with leading veterinary experts and universities throughout the country. Operating similarly to a human "teaching" hospital, we employ the region’s best and brightest and utilize the most current techniques. We work diligently to determine the cause of your pet’s illness and to identify the correct course of treatment.
From our humble beginnings 35 years ago in a rehabilitated 900-square-foot dry cleaners, we’ve come a long way. Our hospital today occupies 3,200 square feet and includes four exam rooms, fully equipped surgery suites, special diagnostic room, anesthesia recovery and intensive care units, and state-of-the-art digital radiography, digital ultrasound, computerized medical record system, advanced anesthesia monitoring computers, digital dental radiography, and a newly renovated kennel for boarding.
