I have been taking all of my pets to Dr J since the mid 1980's. The girls in the office are great. Dr J is very straight forward, matter of fact. He never sugar coats it or tells you something just because it sounds good. If he can't do something, he will refer you to someone who can (hardly ever happens). Sure there are nicer places, but I would rather have this team that is very experienced and the prices are very reasonable. I hope Dr J is not planning on retiring anytime soon, cause it would suck to look for another vet as good and well priced as him.

All of our family, which includes all of our pets, love Dr J and all of his staff. Good hearted, loving, kind, gifted people. We are 100% pleased with North Suburban Veterinary clinic. They have helped us through the lives and deaths, due to old age of many of our 4 footed furry friends. They ROCK! Best people, animal advocates, that understand and help anyway they can. Good humor, intelligence, can't praise them enough.

We've been coming to North Suburban Veterinary Hospital for several years. We've tried a couple other newer facilities in the past.. but none have measured up to the care, experience and kindness of Dr. J and his staff. We have dogs and cats.. and they are treated expediently without exorbitant cost. I trust experience over bells and whistles any day!

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.
