Honestly you guys are fabulous! I cannot say enough good things about the Docs, the staff, you name it. If we have a illness, you guys get us in very promptly according to the need. Obviously if it is urgent, you get us in as quickly as possible. If not critical, you always still manage to get us in that day. I don't think we have ever waited longer than 24hrs (if ever). Even if you are fitting us in, we never wait more than a few minutes. You have no idea how grateful we are to have found your practice!

Veterinarians(shout out to Dr. Max, he always exceeds our expectations) are friendly and available. I previously was at a national practice vet and they never had appts on short notice. We originally became a client when our cat was very sick and they took us just before closing time. Caring and kind practice, always happy to see everyone’s pets.

We totally trust DGAH with our girl. She is hyper and we know the staff is so good with her. Medical care is given when needed, we couldn’t travel without knowing our dog was in the best hands

We brought in our pet, Layla, due to not eating. Dr. Merkin has been wonderful. He showed an abundance of care. Layla needed some labs done, and Dr. Merkin followed up with the results the next day even though it was Sunday to come up with a collaborative care plan for our pet. We appreciated his time and care!

My cat had an unexpected emergency and Downers Grove Animal Hospital made the time to see her. We did not have an appointment and are a brand new client. The staff are extremely knowledgeable and friendly! They put me at ease even though I was very stressed about my pet. I cannot recommend them enough! Thank you so much!

Everyone was wonderful from start to finish. I especially appreciate that they do not price gauge, and are honest and fair. Not only that, they got us in right away, and took such good care of my animal. Thank you!

We had a great experience! The Dr was extremely patient and was very thorough about what was best for our dogs. I really appreciated that it wasn’t over crowded. It really helps with dogs that are nervous to not be surrounded by so many other dogs. Every one was really friendly and helpful. I will definitely make this my new vet!

Five stars! Dr. Graham is so thorough and precise with our dogs. He takes time and shows compassion towards the dogs and answers questions without his hand on the door knob.

Dr Sharon is the best! And I love the girls at the desk! They are always smiling and very helpful!

My family and I have been bringing our dogs to Downers Grove Animal Hospital for over 30 years. Dr. Bob, Dr. Max, Dr. Graham and Dr. Sharon are amazing. They have always put the care of my pups first. They explain their treatments and care plans thoroughly and are very reassuring. The staff are always willing to support me when I call about something for Stewart (previously Roscoe) and I know that they love all the animals that come in like their own. I am blessed to have Downers Grove Animal Hospital for Stewart and will be a client for life.

EVERY person at your facility is always so understanding, and helpful. I am so glad I switched from VCA to your practice I cannot tell you how much. If we have a problem, or concern, the docs are accessible and wonderful. I cannot tell you how grateful we are that we have your practice in our community.

The care my pets receive is wonderful and the empathy is always there. That shows in the vet and trickles down to all the staff.

The staff is super helpful but also professional. Always listen to my concerns and questions and treat my dog with respect (and affection).

My senior dog, Barney, gets the best care ever at DGAH. The doctors are thorough and the staff keep my little guy happy and safe. I wouldn’t go anywhere else! I love DGAH! The entire staff is so caring and kind to my very senior dog. The doctors take the time to answer all of my questions and I never feel rushed. Thank you all!

Vet tech @ front desk was very friendly, and she spent extra time helping me download your App on my new smart phone I have always had a flip phone, but I have to learn these new high- tech methods. Once installed, it was very easy with her help! I did not see a name tag, but she hadon a cute Stitch scrub top. Your staff is so helpful and considerate, and that is why I have been a loyal client since December, 2003!!

I’ve referred my sons and friends to this practice, with high referral rates. We’ve been clients for over 30 years, and have been very satisfied for all our cats and dogs.

Always attentive and honest about my pet's condition. (I have a senior cat that tends to be a bit fat). My indoor kitty was recently in for respiratory symptoms of coughing and sneezing. They made sure we used a separate entrance and exit to protect the other patients. They also gave me options, including the choice for palliative care, and full medical testing and services. They never guilt trip you on your choice. It is obvious their technicians love animals.

Stewie is always greeted with smiles and enthusiasm. The medical care is top notch. Stewie has no fear of the vet. He is a senior dog now and I attribute his longevity and good health to the care he has received from Downers Grove Animal Hospital. Thank you for taking such good care of my Stewie.

Been a patient (my dogs) for many, many years. It's wonderful to be able to reach someone when your dog is not feeling well and to get an appt. asap. Thanks!

The staff at DGAH were so friendly, understanding, caring, and related to our situation. I was thankfully supported through the entire second opinion and in the best sense of everything provided a level of care that should be commended. Thank you!

Everyone at that office is always so friendly and nice. It's a clean place I just like it all the way around because it's a pleasant atmosphere.

I like that I see the same people all the time, not rotating staff like a lot of the vets out by me, I want personal care.

My father took our family dogs here 40 years ago. Now I took my first ever cat Rolo and was so happy to see that Doctor Robert Merkin is still there! He was wonderful with our dogs and Dr. Max Merkin was just as wonderful with our cat! We were a little nervous as first time cat owners wanting to do our very best for Rolo. Dr. Max handled Rolo so well and answered all our questions. We left feeling great about the experience! Can't recommend them enough!

Ever since this team saved my first dog's life in 1998, I have been a loyal DGAH user. They take the same compassionate care of my second dog, Abby. I love all of them!

We love Dr. Sharon and all the care, advice, and guidance she has given us over the years!

We love the vets and staff and DG Animal Hospital. We have been using your services for over 25 years now because our pets have always gotten excellent care there. If we have follow up questions, we just make a phone call and one of the vets always follows up quickly. We really appreciate how caring the whole staff is.

There aren't enough characters allowed to tell you how much I appreciate all you do and have done for our cockatiel Minty (many years ago) as well as our Sandy and now Sadie! Thank you!

Dr Max does a great job. He’s friendly, straight to the point & I never feel shy asking questions. The vet techs & front staff are seriously the BEST!! I’ve probably interacted with everyone at least a few times in person or on the phone. They are so kind, helpful & considerate. I really can’t say enough positive things about them all.
March 21, 2023.
DG Animal Hospital is the best! I cannot believe that you contacted us on a Sunday less than an hour after submitting an online request for an appointment following a visit to the ER and squeezed us in the following day to make sure everything was okay with our fur baby. Thank you so much.

Your facility is top notch and the staff is very professional, courteous, and knowledgeable.

Dr. Wehling is the best doctor In Illinois. She has taken care of my dogs for 20 years. My Amber needs the thorough treatment and Dr.Wehling gives her the best there is. Amber likes eyes light up when she sees Dr. Wehling.

I appreciate never feeling rushed and getting thoughtful, detailed answers to my questions about my pets. The doctors here are the best blend of clinical expertise and compassionate care. We very much appreciate the professionalism and warmth of the vet techs and staff as well.

I brought my 12 year old rescue dog in for the first time. Elizabeth, Alice and Dr. Max were the staff I spoke to, and another young woman whose name I don’t remember. They were so kind, friendly and accommodating. I am so grateful for their support.
