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!

      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.

      We LOVE this place! And are so glad we decided to switch and come here ! My puppy, Ted, can be a handful! Dr. Schmitt and the staff are so patient with him. From the minute we walk in he is greeted with smile and a treat! Even when he is being a little anxious and barking away! We had a couple issues with our Ted and Dr. Schmitt has been great with any questions or concerns we have. We would not take him anywhere else!
