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.

Our Reputation

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.
