Who We Are

A few words about us...

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 to work with us, 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 veterinarian any time!

      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.

      Tammy made my Mr. Dennis Reynolds the 2nd a happy cat in no time. She even had a wonderful baby food suggestion that worked, well, it worked wonderfully; I used Gerber beef and beef gravy, the little freak sucks it up like a vampire. I am even able to mix the liquid anti biotic without him noticing. It's no fun forcing liquid into a cat much less a sick jerk cat.

      A good vet. I'll go back I'm sure.
