As a lifelong pet owner in Chicago, I am pretty familiar with this hospital. Emergencies never happen during regular hours, and its during emergencies that you begin to appreciate expert service and a state of the art facility. The staff at Chicago Veterinary Emergency are unique in that they probably see the worst of emergency cases, but they are never cold. In fact, they are quite the opposite. Diagnosis and treatment are amazingly fast and accurate as they have their own lab services on site (something that usually takes a day or two at my regular veterinary clinic).
Im very grateful that we have access to such a great emergency hospital. The extra cost for using this premium service is completely worth it and I didnt find it to be much more than going to my regular vet. Im only sorry that this hospital isnt available for my regular services.
Pros: competent, valuable, state of the art
Cons: only one location
