The veterinarians at West Suburban Veterinary Associates have combined experience of over 100 years. (How much is that in dog years?) Our veterinarians have a passion for medicine, a true love of animals and are dedicated to providing exemplary medical care for our patients. Our veterinary team is on the cutting edge of veterinary medicine and consistently adding to their knowledge in order to provide the most advanced medical treatments possible. They feel strongly that the human-animal bond is a great one. They enjoy having the opportunity to strengthen the bond between you and your pet by including you in the treatment plans. Although they are the medical experts, you are the expert on your pet. As the owner of our practice always says to his clients, “No one knows your pet like you do.” Your pet is a member of your family, and we treat them as such. Each patient is treated with kindness and compassion in our hospital, always.
