Ravenswood Animal Hospital
I think Dr. Cindy Olsen is the most talented small animal veterinarian in Chicago. She also is trained in acupuncture & chiropractic to treat dogs, cats, and visits barns around Chicagoland to treat horses. She opened her own practice in 2014, Ravenswood Animal Hospital. I'm impressed!! The facility has all brand new equipment, insightful construction, and an incredibly talented hospital staff. It gets hard to park in the city, but her clinic has a parking lot and is across from Horner Park. A little bit about me, I love cats, I love everything about cats except wet food & litter box smells. Dogs are really cool too; but for me, cats are where its at. We have two orange cats in our house and Dr Olsen has been their veterinarian since 2006. Her advice and feedback to get an additional litterbox has helped ease the occasional 'disagreements' between the cats. Our cats get regular exams and have been consistently healthy over the years. In the few times that they have gotten sick, Dr. Olsen has been quick to treat them, extremely empathetic during the healing process, and extremely thorough during all of our re-checks to make sure our little orange friends got back to 100% health. Our cats are the snuggliest!I highly recommend Ravenswood Animal Hospital and Dr. Olsen.

Drs. Ferraro and Post are some of the most competent Drs., that can ever come together to open an office. Let alone from the guidance of the great father and vet himself Dr. Ferraro who I met in 1985 and he told me 1 thing, "Be patient, they love you no matter what". He was great and Dr. Susan learned from the best! I do not hesitate to tell anyone to bring their pets to LPD&CC. When I lost my beloved Reggie, they treated him and me like family and I thank them every day. If you have a question, call they will answer. Thank you very much!

I have been taking my beagle Buckley here for the past 3 years. THEY ARE AWESOME! I can't say enough good things about Dr. Ferraro and Dr. Post. They LOVE animals and what they do, and it shows. Buckley ate an entire bar of dark chocolate one night making an unexpected visit to the doggie ER. Frank called the next day to check on the little guy. What a team. They really explain everything to provide the best care. I appreciate them so much and will never go anywhere else (I recently moved and drive 45 minutes into the city just to see them)!

I cite the following example of care: another vet clinic performed a "minor surgery" on our first Boxer who just happened to be a "show" dog. Our boy "Myles" suffered tremendously and was dying because the infection spread to his liver. We brought the boy to Dr. Sue and her Dad and they went out of their way to bring him to specialists; because 1) he was only 4 years old and 2) they realized how much he was loved. THE DOCTORS at this clinic brought him - we were not referred to as other clinics have a history of doing.

I have been taking my dogs and cats to this veterinary clinic for over 20 years, and they have always provided the best care possible for my animals. When my 11 year-old golden retrievers were diagnosed with a soft tissue sarcoma, they referred me to an excellent veterinary oncology surgeon who successfully took care of the problem. And two years later, when my golden was diagnosed with lymphoma, they found another oncologist who specialized in this disorder who put her into remission for over two years.

We take both our dogs to Lincoln Park Dog & Cat and have always had a wonderful experience. We have a 9-year old mix and a golden retriever puppy. When we got the puppy and took him for his "well-puppy exam" Dr. Post spent over 30 minutes going over all the ins and outs of puppyhood and what to expect. What is normal, what isn’t normal...even though we already had a dog. Drs. and technicians are very thorough and we always leave feeling well taken care of. Staff is very friendly as well.

North Center Animal Hosp
I have been going to North Center for about 28 years. We have loved and trusted everyone we've worked with there. We've been through 3 pets who've needed to be put down, heart conditions, kidney stones, and swallowed Christmas ribbon. Through all of it, North Center has been there for all of us. When my daughter moved to Portland, Dr Castillo helped through the transition of getting her cat there. Definitely 5 stars. The O'Day family

Great service, I used them to attain a nurse to assist my ailing mother. The nurses were kind, very helpful and respectful. The owners are very helpful and educated me on how the entire process works. I would use Angels care if forbid ever the situation arose again where I needed home health care for any family members. Great people, great service.

I have been taking my animals to Dr. Ferraro 1995 and I will never go anywhere else. The doctor is so informative and good with everyone. In the years I've been seeing Dr. Ferraro of course some of my pets have passed away from old age and without fail, I always received sympathy cards from the staff even one with fur and paw prints from my cat.
Tips & Advices
Bring medical records and medications that your pet is taking. Also, you should bring your ID and a form of payment.
Yes, there are veterinary clinics that only deal with emergency cases. They generally take walk-ins and referrals from family vets.
Yes, emergency vets treat dental emergencies and dental trauma. Freshly fractured teeth are the main category of dental injury that vets consider an emergency.
To prevent health emergencies, experts recommend supervising one’s pets, and trying to make sure they don’t get into emergency situations. A majority of emergency vet visits happen because animals were struck by cars, bit by other animals, or ingested toxins. Otherwise, the best way to prevent emergencies is by having a go-to vet you can call with any questions, and being vigilant about potential symptoms (i.e. runny stool, or trouble walking) as they appear but before they become extremely serious.
Experts say that the conditions that necessitate an emergency veterinarian visit include collapse, seizures, inability to walk, partial paralysis, and any difficulty breathing (non-stop panting, constant coughing, hyperventilation, or elevated heart rate). Gum color is often an indicator that something is wrong--especially blue gums or very pale gums. Excessive vomiting or a distended abdomen should be considered an emergency situation. Signs of any trauma or excessive bleeding should send your pet straight to the vet. Lastly, for cat owners, urinary obstruction is fatal if not treated, and generally occurs in male cats.
