Who We Are

A few words about us...

Experienced, Compassionate Vet Care in McHenry and Bull Valley

In human medicine, we often hear the term “bedside manner” used to describe doctors and nurses who have a particular way with people. What about our animal companions? Don’t they deserve that same level of personal attention and compassionate care? After all, they are a part of the family.

At Animal Hospital of McHenry, we believe that every animal is special and deserves to be treated as such. In fact, we’ve built a reputation in the McHenry and Bull Valley area for the individualized care we provide. When you choose us as your Bull Valley / McHenry area vet, you’ll get much more than just a doctor for your pet. You’ll get a partnership and a support system. You’ll get a trusted resource to whom you can turn with all of your animal health care needs.

Our clients appreciate the warmhearted way with which we deliver our services. It’s the little touches – like cozy towels, tasty treats and the gentle, reassuring nature of our staff members – that make all the difference. It’s high-quality medicine meets old-fashioned service and it’s something that makes us truly unique.

If you’re searching for a vet that offers exceptional “petside manner,” you’ve come to the right place! Call your McHenry and Bull Valley veterinarian any time!

      My cat Boots is being treated there for diabetes. He is on insulin. Daily shoots. They have been so amazing with him. They have showed us how to maintain care for our cat. Showing us how to give him his shots and take his level reading. Not only Dr. Mary Bishop, but the assistants they have working with them. Very on hands. Just recently we had to bring my bosses dog in as an emergency visit. We called ahead to let them know we where coming. They had a room waiting and the Doctor was right in to check her out. I highly recommend McHenry Animal Hospital.

      I have now used Animal Hospital of McHenry 3 times now, with each visit being extremely satisfying. It is always nerve-wracking trying a new vet especially for a fur-mom like myself. This vets office has been nothing but worry-free since the first phone call. Every time I bring my dog in they greet her by name with treats. They do a great job or making it a positive experience for both canine and owner. I have always been treated with the utmost respect, kindness, compassion and empathy. My dog had her surgery on her tooth performed at this location and they called me through out the day to let me know how she was doing. My border collie can be a bit of a handful when she is stressed but they handled her so well. They allowed her to roam the back or be in a play pen because she is frightened by crates/cages. They let my dog be herself and allowed her to feel comfortable at her own pace.

      Again, I would highly recommend them and I thank them for the kindness and compassion they have shown myself as well as my most beloved furry friend. I will continue to be a loyal client and trust The Animal Hospital of McHenry with my babies.

      This is one of the nicest animal hospitals I've been to. Large, homey, exam rooms with cushioned seats perfect for comforting and snuggling your furkid. Great staff! And Dr Tammy Schmitt. The BEST veterinarian in the greater Chicago area! And not a bad drive from Chicago at all. I highly recommend it.

      Dr. Tammy is very thorough and very thoughtful. She's patient and kind to her clients and their pets. Our dogs and cats showed no fear towards her or her staff. We'll never take our pets to anyone else. So very glad we found her!
