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!

      Can’t say enough about how great Animal Hospital of McHenry has been. Dr. Schmitt and staff are very caring and knowledgeable. I used to go to another vet in town and it was always a stressful experience for the dogs (and me). At animal hospital of mchenry it’s stress free, with a great level of care for a reasonable price. If you’re going somewhere else you’re missing out.

      I had my first appointment scheduled with this veterinarian for today with our cat and dog for vaccinations. But yesterday our inside/outside cat got snatched by a hawk. She got herself free but sustained 2 broken ribs and puncture wounds. I called the office and was told to bring her as soon as possible even though they were booked solid. The staff was amazing.

      Our dog was recently diagnosed with diabetes, and Dr. Schmitt has been very helpful. She is genuinely concerned and takes the time to explain what needs to be done to keep him healthy. We decided in December to take our dogs to the Animal Hospital of McHenry, on a friend's recommendation, after going to another local vet clinic for many, many years. We're very happy we switched and trust the advise Dr. Schmitt has given us. The diabetes diagnosis was sudden and unexpected, and our fears have been put to rest thanks to Dr. Schmitt. Her staff is great, too!

      We just love Dr Schmidt! She's very minimal in her treatment when she can be and moves along slowly to figure things out. She speaking common terms to make... Read More
