COVID-19: Attention! We are 100% curbside at this time.

    Important Announcement from Drs. Molly and Steve
    To all of our wonderful clients and friends:

    I am writing to inform you that Dr. Steve Barten and I will be retiring at the end of December.

    This is a bittersweet letter to write. We both have been practicing veterinary medicine for over four decades. Over these many years we have been a part of your lives by virtue of caring for your beloved pets. We’ve experienced your joy of having a new furry (or scaly!) family member, as well as your sorrow of loss. There’s a special bond that veterinarians have with their clients and their pets, and we have been honored to share that with you.

    The best part of veterinary medicine has been our patients. It’s such a pleasure to come to work every day and be able to help so many wonderful animals. We’ll miss the wagging tails from dogs and the head butts from cats, and we’ll also miss the ones that weren’t so crazy about seeing us! After these many years, we have our tricks, and it was always satisfying to be able to help put some of our more anxious patients at ease.

    We are leaving you in the caring and capable hands of Dr. Susan Sneed and Dr. Jeremy Caseltine. Most of you already know them, and I assure the rest of you that you will find them to be excellent veterinarians.

    We truly appreciate your trust and loyalty, and we’ll miss seeing you all.

    We took one of our reptiles, Angel in as she had an infection, and Dr. Barten is fantastic and knows his reptiles. He was very thorough, and with COVID, he called us while we were in the car and discussed fully what he did and what the next steps were. I highly recommend him and the facility as the receptionist who answered us all the times we called and went back was very nice.

    My daughter called everywhere trying to get her snake in to be seen, and she finally found VHAH. She was extremely nervous, as this is her first snake, and she had no idea about protocol. The staff and Dr were AMAZING!! They treated her and her snake with so much care. She was put at ease, and they explained everything they would do, offered suggestions on some extra care, and talked with her instead of at her. She was able to provide feedback freely and felt comfortable asking questions. I definitely have recommended them to others. Much appreciated.

    I was referred by a neighbor to Vernon Hills Animal Hospital; she spoke highly of them. Took both my cats to them. Right, when you walk into the office, you are greeted with a smile. I have a cat who is very skittish and doesn’t like dogs. They allow you to check-in while your sitting in your car outside. A tech will come out and get you when a room is open. Love it!! Molly McCullough, D.V.M is our veterinarian love love love her so caring and genuinely nice. After my Kobe cat passed, the entire staff signed a very sweet card with their condolences. I recommend you check out this office first; you will not seek out another office after you meet the staff.

    Staff and vets are very friendly! Their Covid-19 procedures are efficient. They took really great care of our dog Stella!

    Bret S.

    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.
