★★★★★ I've taken my two cats here since I adopted them a couple years ago. I have seen several doctors and have never been disappointed in the treatment or care of my cats. All the doctors we've seen have been caring, sincere, and attentive in making sure my cats are receiving the best treatment and care whether they have an infection or are getting their vaccinations. Highly recommend Dr. Claire McCallick or Dr. Pawel Tymoszuk.Jeanine D.Jeanine D. ★★★★★ Got lots of helpful info when I stopped in last minute yesterday but jasmine and Diego! Great customer service!Rachel L.Rachel L. ★★★★★ Dr. Caplan is the vet for our elderly dog, Bogey, who has suffered from a variety of uncommon medical issues. Dr. Caplan has gone out of his way to research our dog's illnesses, refer us to a specialist when it was necessary for a mouth tumor, and thoughtfully work through a series of possible solutions for Bogey's arthritic leg until he found the perfect combination of medicines that has allowed Bogey to walk again pain free.

First of all I called about 5 vet offices in my area and no one was “equipped” to see my dog Panda or he needed to be a current patient or I would have to schedule weeks in advance. I finally stumbled upon Companion Animal Hospital of Norridge. I explained to them over the phone what was going on with my 12 week old Panda, he would be a new patient. Immediately they were able to accommodate me and give me a same day appointment. Let me just say Dr. Mccaullick is amazing, her care for Panda went above and beyond. I was very satisfied with the care she gave Panda. Her assistant was also amazing 🤩 if I could give this place more stars I would. Even the front office staff were amazing! Looks like I found a new vets office for both my fur babies. Thank you all so very much!Jessica A.Jessica A. ★★★★★ Even though the outcome was heart breaking Companion animal hospital was absolutely amazing. Thanks for treating my dog with kindness and love before we had to put her downTracy M.Tracy M. ★★★★★ I want to give a shout out to this Champion Hospital. This is a one stop shop . My dog gets groomed from a beautiful lady that Sir Oscar loves . Her name is Cassandra. He loves her. Very professional. And now we had the pleasure of meeting DR. Anderson. Wonderful Dr. She stopped Sir Oscar from eating his feet 🐾. Also the technicians are so sweet 🧁 Especially Adrian . So if you need a place. Here it is. We love the whole place Thank you Champion 🏆OO ★★★★★ The doctors and staff at Companion Animal Hospital of Norridge are great! We have several dogs that are patients of the hospital and each one is treated with kindness and compassion, even one particularly tough customer names Myles who is part Chihuahua and part Shark. Myles gets all the medical attention he needs despite his ornery temperament. Highly recommend.Andy Perostianis of Dream Town R.Andy Perostianis of Dream Town R. ★★★★★ I cannot say enough great things about this place. We have been clients of Companion for 3 years (when we moved to the area). Recently, we had an high risk situation and Companion got us in right away. We usually see Dr Scott, who we love!! But Dr. Caplan was the vet that day. He had a sense of urgency, sympathy, and walked us through the all the possible steps/details. Dr. Caplan made us comfortable with the action plan and called us throughout the day to follow up. Our cats are family and I felt Dr Caplan treated us that way. I would highly recommend the Dr Caplan and Dr Scott.Tasha M.Tasha M. ★★★★★ Amazing and knowledgeable staff. Great atmosphere with caring providers. We got my cat in the same day, after he fell ill all of a sudden. Procedure and advice put us at ease and helped my cat get better. Reliable and helpful animal hospital!Angelika S.Angelika S. ★★★★★ Great placeLeo R.Leo R. ★★★★★ Dr Pawel Tymoszuk is wonderful. He listened to my concerns and provided practical solutions.michael V.michael V. ★★★★★ Very helpful staff and good vet treated my Lola good and was very thoroughElena T.Elena T. ★★★★★ I brought my foster cat, Chloe, here and the entire staff was so welcoming. They did such a great job and definitely showed kindness and cared about Chloe. All my questions were answered and they offered to help me clean up my cat who made a mess in her crate, and even helped bring her to the door ( she’s very heavy) . Although they apologized for the wait, it was still a lot quicker than I expected! I’ve had other experiences at other vets and this has by far been the best service and hospitality, thank you to the Doctor who helped Chloe and the vet tech Diego! So helpfulReyna R.Reyna R. ★★★★★ Moved to the area and needed to find a new vet. Dr Caplan, his assistant Jasmine and the entire front desk staff were great from beginning to end. They made my dog feel comfortable and welcomed. We’re glad to have them be our veterinary care providers.Yesenia A.Yesenia A. ★★★★★ Kind of a late, but much deserved review! I have taken my Daisy here for a few years now. My dog is a reactive pit mix who doesn’t like other animals which can make vet visits very hard. Every time I bring Daisy in, they make special accommodations so that Daisy won’t see other animals when walking in which is amazing. They also don’t judge her and immediately show her love to calm her down. I usually see Dr. Scott but I have seen quite a few of the other vets, and they are all great! They are very upfront and give you all the options. Appointments are easy to make, and I can almost always get in the same week which is amazing.Andrea D.Andrea D. ★★★★★ Brought in our 2 and half year-old blue-nosed American Pitbull Terrier yesterday for red paws and ears (and a bump) that the doctor determined were allergies, was administered a shot, bump sent for tests and examined in a microscope on-site, and we were also prescribed a topical medication and he is looking significantly better already today.The place was really comfortable (even saw coffee in the lobby like a hair salon has) and we REALLY appreciated being able to wait in the exam room as to not have too much barking from other dogs getting our dog too excited.All the staff were very knowledgeable and handled our dog with care.Karl D.Karl D. ★★★★★ Dr Tymoszuk is incredible! My rescue Chihuahua isn’t really fond of strangers, and she right off the bat let Dr Tymoszuk handle her without any issues. He is very professional and kind, I am so happy to have him as our vet. The front staff is always very nice as well.Carina B.Carina B. ★★★★★ The place is always clean and the staff super friendly. Dr. Scott is so professional but puts you at ease and Melissa the tech is super nice too!Eileen B.Eileen B. ★★★★★ Unfortunately, I found out about this veterinary clinic when I had to put my cat to sleep. However, I was amazed by the entire staffs compassion and understanding toward me during this difficult visit.Everyone was very helpful, professional and guided me through the process. Something that touched me the most was that the entire team also mailed me a hand-written card a week after the visit, although my cat was never a patient at this clinic. It was a very kind and thoughtful gesture, thank you so much.This experience has convinced me to visit this clinic in the future with my next pet.NadiyaNadiya ★★★★★ Very clean. Staff is very friendly. Vet was very helpful.Maria R.Maria R. ★★★★★ Just a wonderful facility. Recently had a cat that passed away and they were just so kind and helpful I didn’t know the process of how to go about dealing with the cremation. The woman I spoke with on the phone was just wonderful. Dealing with something like that Is hard and they really just helped me a lot.Jessica M.Jessica M. ★★★★★ Dr. Anderson always provides the best care for our fur babies. She’s experienced, knowledgeable, and compassionate. She’s the best vet around and someone you can really trust. ❤️Urban F.Urban F. ★★★★★ My Pet always is in good hands.Gonzalo De Jesus Pineros R.Gonzalo De Jesus Pineros R. ★★★★★ My dog has seen these doctors since he was 12 weeks old. He is now 12 years old. The doctors and staff are amazing, faithful and truthful! My Chumley is and has been with the best Veterinary ever.Penny T.Penny T. ★★★★★ Excellent service.Edmond X.Edmond X. ★★★★★ Recently became a cat parent and took my little group to them and it was a great experience for all. The cats loved their visit and getting to roam around the exam room.Ismael Leyva J.Ismael Leyva J. ★★★★★ This was our first visit back in a long time. We always had impeccable experiences with Dr. Hammer and our previous pets.This time, we met with Katie (Vet Tech) and she was amazing. She slowly introduced herself to our kittens and handled them with extreme care.She explained what was recommended and provided options. She was very thorough.We then met with Dr. Tymoszuk, who was also excellent. He took the time to examine our kittens with care, and discussed everything with us, including answering our long lists of questions.Nothing felt rushed and we were incredibly satisfied with the service.Looking forward to bringing our pets here again as I feel they will be very well cared for.Jessica S.Jessica S. ★★★★★ Last week was our first time bringing our dog to Companion Animal Hospital of Norridge. We really like the staff and the Doctor. The place is great and everyone is very friendly. Doctor was very sweet with our dog and we felt that all our questions/concerns were addressed.Verónica D.Verónica D. ★★★★★ I'm seriously so thankful for the doctor tongue me hope on my dog walking again I am so grateful, thank you so muchStev E.Stev E. ★★★★★ Dr Anderson is the best she is so patient with my 16 year old dog and offers excellent insight after each appointment !

The staff and Dr's are awesomeBob M.Bob M. ★★★★★ Dr. Scotty at Companion Norridge is the absolute best. We bring both of our dogs (very different dispositions) to her. One of them is EXTREMELY anxious at the vet. Dr Scotty and Elizabeth (vet tech) were unbelievably patient and caring with her. They spent a ton of time just getting her comfortable with them before the tough stuff (shots and blood work) began. They tried multiple approaches, got everything completed and were pleasant the whole time to both our dog and to us, the owners. Highly recommend - so lucky to have them nearby.Maureen N.Maureen N. ★★★★★ My fiance and I take our pittie to Companion and they have been amazing with him. He is a rescue and presents with anxious behavior. Dr. McCallick is ALWAYS so patient with him and with us. She is also so great with answering any questions I have both during his appointments and via email. Thank you for all you do for our pet!Sophia B.Sophia B. ★★★★★ Friendly and knowledgeable staff who truly love animals. Clean facility and we have never had to wait to be seen.Teresa S.Teresa S. ★★★★★ The staff here is AMAZING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Rosa N.Rosa N. ★★★★★ Super friendly and accommodating. I just moved to the area and adopted a new dog and they made the process easy.Mike Z.Mike Z. ★★★★★ Love how professional everyone is and how amazing they are with our cats!Natalia Rybarska K.Natalia Rybarska K. ★★★★★ Companion in Northridge is amazing. I have referred as many people as I can there, both dog and cat owners. Not only is the staff extremely friendly, but I never experience long.wait times or having my appointment bumped for a walk in. That's really important because our furr babies do not like to wait!And of course the vets and vet techs are top notch. I have an older cat who is starting to show signs of old age ailments and they always take wonderful care of him. I think he actually likes going now!Heather S.Heather S. ★★★★★ I really love Cassandra the groomer. My Yorkie gets beautified by her every 6 weeks.

Highly recommend Cassandra❤️Norma C.Norma C. ★★★★★ New puppy in the home.They were great with her and very informative about what I needed to know about her and her care.Wally H.Wally H. ★★★★★ The doctor and assistant were very kindnoe Lopez O.noe Lopez O. ★★★★★ Brought my Golden Doodle here and I was very impressed. Super clean place, incredibly friendly staff. The Doctor took his time and explained things in great detail and I truly appreciated how much love they showed my little guy. Will definitely be coming back!David V.David V. ★★★★★ We have been coming here for nearly 15 years and are so grateful for the care our pets have received from Dr Hammer, Dr Anderson, Dr Tymoszuk, and a special shout out to Alex who is incredible at what he does. Harper and our family is forever appreciative.V K.V K. ★★★★★ My cat Wheatley is a terror at the vet. I have an actual scar behind my ear from the last time we went and he got upset. This vet was the first to suggest medication for his anxiety (and give him a good dose) while also being gentle and slow with him. They care so much about his well being, they make sure I understand what is happening medically, they break down costs effectively, and every time they interact with Wheatley they let him accept their touch or inspect them first. They make Wheatley feel comfortable (as much as possible, that is) and I feel comfortable there too. My crazy boy is in good hands here.Maureen L.Maureen L. ★★★★★ Came in to check out my shadow leg and staff was great !🙏🏽💪🏽 in and outScby BScby B ★★★★★ I love everyone hereRenee M.Renee M. ★★★★★ We had to make the decision to let our Casper go. Staff was super compassionate, patient, explaining everything every step of the way and answering all of our questions. Truly felt like they went above and beyond, made a very difficult situation a little less painful. We got a card in the mail with kind words from all the staff. My mom appreciated how thoughtful it was. Thank you all so much. ❤dorota N.dorota N. ★★★★★ We took our English Cream Golden Retriever, Triever, to be groomed today.Cassandra is the groomer that we go to each time. She is wonderful!! Triever always looks and smells so good when he’s done. She has a gentle and calm personality and I can tell she loves what she does!! Thanks Cassandra. If you’re looking for a great groomer, she’s the best.Dawn J.Dawn J. ★★★★★ I’ve been taking our Norwegian Elkhound mix, Artie to doggie day care at their facility and I couldn’t be happier. He loves coming and playing with all his pup friend, but he most likes to see the staff. They treat him so well and I am at ease leaving him there for 8 hours. Thank you on behalf of me and Artie 🐾 for taking such good care of him.Lulu L.Lulu L. ★★★★☆ Dr. Scott was patient and friendly with my nervous dog. She restored my faith in Companion Animal Hospital after a 5 year hiatus due to a less than satisfying experience with one of the male vets in the practice.Karen L.Karen L. ★★★★☆ Dr. Scott is great and new tech Adrian I believe is his name did a nice jobLazzLazzjs_loader
