Veterinary Services

For over 60 years, Dundee Animal Hospital has been caring for pets in Chicago's Northwest suburbs.  Over the years, we have added a comprehensive list of available veterinary services to help pets live longer, happier, and healthier lives.  From annual vet exams to laser therapy treatment, our staff is here for every aspect of your pet's health.  Learn more about the veterinary services we provide at our Dundee, Elgin and Algonquin locations! See the list below and click through each service link for additional information.

Every pet deserves a customized wellness plan to meet their needs and keep them healthy. We'll create a wellness plan for your pet based on their specific lifestyle. 

Vaccines are an important way to prevent diseases in pets and help them live longer. Find out what vaccines we can offer to benefit your four-legged family member. 

Did your pet just swallow a sock? Do they seem lethargic? If your pet is having a medical emergency, you have options. Find out what constitutes a health emergency, and who to call for after-hours care. 

If you have a bird, ferret or hamster, we would be happy to help you take care of them. Exotics and pocket pets need routine veterinary care just like cats and dogs.

Diagnostics are an important tool for examining your pet internally and making a complete assessment of their health. It also helps us detect hidden problems that may require immediate treatment.

Dental care should be a routine part of your pet's life. We can help you devise a dental plan that accommodates your pet's needs while also preventing harmful infections and diseases from developing.

We can use surgery in various ways to treat pets and ensure that they stay healthy. Our AAHA-accredited hospital utilizes the most modern tools and equipment to minimize risks and keep pets comfortable. 

Spaying and neutering can do more than prevent pregnancies. They can also improve your pet's health and quality of life by eliminating cancer risks and reducing undesirable behaviors. 

Our compassionate team knows how much pets mean to their families. If you need help making decisions regarding end-of-life care or cremation for your pet, we're always here to help you. 

Our Dundee location can offer house calls for patients that are unable to make the trip to our hospital due to anxiety or existing health issues.

Dr. Kersting is an excellent, well educated Veterinarian and person, very nice bed side manner. My husband and I highly recommend this Vet/hospital open 24/7. Never turn away anyone either, always willing to help and give advice too.

First time here, and the whole staff was simply amazing! We were in, taken to the exam room, discussed the X-rays in just under an hour...The DR called me every few hours to keep me updated on my cat, we picked her up that evening and she is doing much better...Follow up with the cardiologist soon! But I would like to thank everyone here, who were so welcoming and sweet to us, especially since I was a total mess!!

Could not be happier with our first visit. The staff was friendly and efficient. The vets are knowledgeable and all have a real compassion for animals and it shows! So glad that we found this place and our miniature Schnauzer named Schnitzel is too!

Thank you for taking such great care of our dog early this morning in Dundee. He had a medical emergency and the staff couldn't have been more caring or professional.

Dr O'Brien is fantastic! She provides comprehensive, patient centered care with compassion. She is focused on heath maintenance and knows just when to provide effective interventions when problems arise. Her confidence, empathy and compassion make me feel more than comfortable in following her recommendations. Thank you Dr O'Brien for your service!

We'd been taking our litter mate pugs here since they were puppies, just under 14 years. We've always enjoyed the entire staff's pleasant, accommodating and professional attitudes. My family recently had to make the toughest decision there is regarding our beloved Chili. We will be forever grateful for the compassion they showed us and our sweet dog at the end of his days. A very special thanks to Dr Lupo, probably the kindest person we've ever met. It's obvious these people not only know what they're doing, they genuinely love animals. Thank you all so so much.

Had an emergency visit with this clinic today for our Schnoodle. Never have been here before but could not have been treated any better by the technicians and the vet on call. Nora and her family thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking care of our sweet girl.

You are the best!!! Thank you for awesome customer service and making me feel good about bringing my animals here.

I have seen pretty much seen every vet here and been here for emergency services. Everyone, including the front staff, the techs, and the vets are amazing. One of my dogs is a bit difficult, and they are always accommodating without judgment. I wouldn’t take my animals anywhere else!
