★★★★★ 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.

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.

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!Sandra O.Sandra O. ★★★★★ Great place for your pet. Couldn’t be happier with our decision to go there. 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.

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.

Will definitely be coming back!David V.David V. ★★★★★ Atlas, likes Dr. Scott - he is waiting for more treats, haha. Seriously, we love this place, staff and Dr. Scott. Prices are affordable also. We can't wait to try the doggie daycare for Atlas.Alma K.Alma K. ★★★★★ 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. ★★★★★ As first time we had a great experience my dog Donut loves Rose she's so nice and patience with him and his so calm with her I'll be coming back all the time plus super clean place .thanks RoseJenni V.Jenni V. ★★★★★ My cat was acting kind of strange so I called Companion and they were great at getting her in and finding the problem. From everyone at the front desk, to the lady that we met with first and the vet. All great people who really care about animals. A plus staff. Good thing I wrote the review. After a couple shots and an ear cleaning, my cat would probably write something crazy. Thanks guys!!!kc R.kc R. ★★★★★ Staff is professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. Doctors and technicians are always there to answer questions, and our pup feels very comfortable there. We have been going there for over 20 years, and our pup has always received the best care.Sandra C.Sandra C. ★★★★★ Bardzo profesjonalna klinika. Wszyscy niezwykle mili, uprzejmi i kompetentni. Polecam każdemu.BrolyBroly ★★★★★ Companion has been my vet for all 3 of my dogs for over 2 years. Dr. Scott is always ready to answer my many questions and collectively create a plan to address any concerns such as my pittie’s allergies. Last night technician, April, was a wealth of information regarding the canine influenza vaccine vs the parainfluenza. PSA - get your dog vaccinated for canine influenza, a separate vaccine. Thank you Team Companion Norridge!Anita M.Anita M. ★★★★★ Dr Scott and the team at Companion Animal Hospital are the greatest. My German Shepherd Puppy (now 1yr 4months) has been seeing them since he came home to us and I wouldn’t trust anyone else with him. Dr scott always explains everything that needs to be done so well to me along with any other questions/concerns I have. She’s very patient with him and he’s taking such a liking to her.Meghan L.Meghan L. ★★★★★ I took my two cats for their first annual checkup and was pleasantly surprised with the facility. We were taken into a room immediately to keep the cats from stressing out. They were welcomed to leave their carriers and wander the room. Both cats were stressed when the arrived but calm and comfortable when they left. Both the vet tech and doctor were great with both cats and answered all questions and concerns. It was an overall great experience!Julia K.Julia K. ★★★★★ Very professional and friendlyStephen P.Stephen P. ★★★★★ We’re new to the area and today one of a dog owners worst fears happened, my dogs got into a fight. Thankfully it wasn’t too bad, but my smaller pup ended up bleeding from his neck which made me nervous, so we rushed him to the nearest vet, companion. They were so quick to help, and you can tell they were concerned, took my concerns seriously, and were very thorough.

Absolutely recommend.Sara M.Sara M. ★★★★★ Great place, very friendly and really good at what they do.Eric W.Eric W. ★★★★★ We brought our two chihuahuas in today to get them up to date with vaccines and their annual exams. We can’t remember the name of our vet but he was amazing as was our tech! They were the most thorough exams our dogs have received in the three years of us bringing them to Companion Norridge. Hopefully we can request the same vet for future visits!Catherine W.Catherine W. ★★★★★ Very friendly staff.I've been there 3 times now and the doctors are very nice.Mariana L.Mariana L. ★★★★★ They have taken such good care of my dog when needed and I appreciate them very much.
