Here are several resources for pet owners in the area (Chicago north suburbs)
Blue Pearl (specialty and emergency medicine for pets)
3735 Dempster, Skokie, IL 60076
Becky’s Notes: Blue Pearl is formally known as Animal 911. The are open during night and weekend hours when regular vets are not. If you have a pet emergency and your regular vet is closed, I recommend Blue Pearl as the place to go. The veterinarians are great. The prices are a bit higher than a regular vet, but are worth it when needed.
Veterinary Specialty Center
1515 Busch Parkway, Buffalo Grove, IL 60089
Becky’s Notes: VSC is a wonderful, full service and specialty veterinary center. They handle a wide variety of specialty testing services and have equipment that regular vets may not have. The staff is absolutely great and they even offer social workers for grievance when having to make difficult decisions. When my cat Chipa was very sick, they went above and beyond to save his life. I am forever grateful for their awesome staff and services.
Niles Animal Hospital & Bird Medical Center
7278 N. Milwaukee, Niles, IL 60714
Becky’s Notes: Niles Animal Hospital is the veterinarian I have been bringing my pets to for years. Dr. Sakas is a wonderful veterinarian who I feel very comfortable with and who’s expertise is outstanding.
