Aurora Veterinary Clinic
My dog was really sick on the verge of death from something she got into trash etc. (we are not really sure what). First we took her to another vet who automatically wanted to do surgery on her for a blockage that was not there. The money was #1 with this place (Oakhurst Animal Hospital), so I wanted a second opinion and took her to Aurora Dog Clinic. This vet was really nice and considerate and very tolerant of my rambunctious pitbull. He was more than willing to take my calls and answer any questions I had, and believe me I called 10 times a day. My dog needed daily IV fluids. This man came in on his day off to take care of my Beauty. He saved me a ton of money and most of all saved a member of our family. I will never take my dogs anywhere else. Aurora Dog Clinic will always be my first choice. Thanks Doc!!

Aurora Veterinary Clinic
We have four cats and have been going to the clinic for seven years. In the past, we went to Banfield and also Naperville Animal Hospital. After experiencing terrible service at both locations, we found Dr. Bajwa and the Aurora Cat Clinic. Both Dr. Bajwa, Dr. Kevin and the staff are incredible with our boys. They are compassionate, caring and really take care of the pets. Other places are only interested in the volume of animals treated, but this clinic knows not only the owners, but all of the names of our pets. Pricing is great and the service is incredible! Wouldn't go anywhere else.

Indian Prairie Animal Hospital
I've been going to Dr. Sam for about 10 years with my hedgehogs, and he's been great. I had two with heart problems which he diagnosed immediately and they both lived another year with the medications they were on. He's always caring, takes time to explaine everything and has even called me on Sundays to check on a sick animal. He is a bit high energy as someone mentioned and he did have another exotic vet with him for awhile that I didn't like at all, but I can't recommend him enough.
Tips & Advices
Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
