      Thoughtful Veterinary Care

      Our practice sees a variety of small animals from Vernon Hills, Mundelein, Libertyville, and beyond. We put your pet first; that’s why our clients (and now their children and even grandchildren) have been returning again and again over the past 36 years.

      Proudly Fear Free

      We’re a Fear Free veterinary practice. To find out why that makes for more pleasant visits for your pets, click here.

      Our Mission

      At Vernon Hills Animal Hospital, we aim to provide the highest quality in veterinary medical care in a friendly, relaxed setting. Our appointments are longer than the average in the veterinary business. That’s because we want to take the time to get to know your pet and give him or her an individualized and thorough health care plan.

      Although our focus is on dogs and cats, we are unique because we see many species of pets. You may see a rabbit or a hedgehog in one of our exam rooms on any given day.

      Thanks to all of our wonderful clients for helping to make our animal hospital successful!

      “This was our first visit and the staff and doctor were great! They made sure we had all the information we needed and got our questions answered. They have extensive Covid protection in place where you wait in the car, they take your animal in and the doctor calls to discuss.”
