About Us

Roscoe Village Animal Hospital is dedicated to providing compassionate, comprehensive, high quality veterinary care with an emphasis on exceptional client service.

Roscoe Village Animal Hospital officially opened its doors in May of 2005.  Our veterinarians have been providing care to the pets of Chicago’s Lakeview and Roscoe Village communities for over 22 years. We continue to build our reputation by being honest, ethical and caring with our clients and their pets.

Roscoe Village Animal Hospital is an established, modern veterinary hospital designed by an award winning veterinary architect. Each detail, from the coffee station in our lobby, the private visitation room for clients, the lift tables in the exam rooms, and the advanced ultraviolet ventilation system that reduces airborne diseases, has been thoughtfully designed to ensure comfort and safety for both our clients and patients.  Roscoe Village Animal Hospital has received numerous awards including Best Veterinary Hospital in the Chicagoland area.

We invite you to visit our hospital where you can see the many reasons why our veterinarians and staff are praised for their kind and thorough care.

 

In 2008, Roscoe Village Animal Hospital received accreditation from the American Animal Hospital Association(AAHA). Our AAHA accreditation means that we’ve undergone a rigorous evaluation process to ensure that we comply with strict standards in patient care, pain management, surgery, and many other areas.

Our team of veterinarians, technicians, client care coordinators, assistants, and facility caretaker are committed to making each visit both pleasant and informative while working with you to provide the best possible care for your pet.

 

What it means to be AAHA acredited:

  • AAHA accredits small animal hospitals throughout both the United States and Canada.
  • Unlike human hospitals, accreditation is not required for veterinary hospitals.
  • Requirements for accreditation often surpass those required by states.
    • State regulations for veterinary hospitals vary widely – some state examiners will never inspect a veterinary practice unless a complaint is filed.
  • Veterinary practices that choose to be AAHA-accredited are evaluated regularly on approximately 900 standards of care.
  • Founded by seven leaders of the veterinary profession in 1933, AAHA has been recognized for years as a leader for the veterinary industry and profession.
  • In addition to accrediting companion animal hospitals, AAHA also develops veterinary guidelines and position statements, publishes educational texts, and offers world-class continuing education for veterinary professionals.
  • AAHA is committed to helping lost pets get back to their owners – the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup tool helps pet owners and shelters determine which microchip company a chip is registered with: www.petmicrochiplookup.org
  • Pet owners can find an accredited veterinary practice by looking for the red AAHA logo, and by searching AAHA’s hospital search tool online: www.aaha.org/petowner
