SPAY & NEUTER
Of all the decisions you can make for your pet, choosing to get them spayed or neutered is perhaps the most important. Although owners sometimes question the need for this surgery or worry about changing their pet’s personality, spaying and neutering your pet is highly beneficial

PUPPY & KITTEN CARE
Congratulations on the fluffy new addition to your family! One of the first things you should do when you bring your new puppy or kitten home is schedule an appointment and bring them in to Oak Brook Pet Hospital for their first wellness visit!
A wellness examination includes an evaluation of all of your pet’s major organ systems. During the wellness visit, we’ll ask you questions about your pet’s behavior, appetite, exercise habits, and regular activities at home. This is also an excellent time for us to establish a good relationship with your pet and discuss your routine going forward.
A large number of dog foods are available at pet supply stores, so selecting a dog food can be daunting. How do you find a food that’s right for your dog? Start by asking your veterinarian the following: “Which food will meet the particular needs of my pet?” and “Which brand(s) do you recommend?”

Love your best friend, but can’t stand their bad breath? Despite what many pet owners may believe, “dog breath” is not just a nuisance— it can also be a sign of an unhealthy mouth.
PAIN MANAGEMENT FOR PETS
Prolonged or chronic pain can drastically reduce the quality of your pet’s life, leaving them irritable, reclusive, and even uncharacteristically aggressive as they attempt to deal with their discomfort. You don’t want to see them suffer another day longer. Neither do we.
PARASITE PREVENTION & CONTROL
Parasites, like fleas, ticks, and worms, aren’t simply annoying — they can cause serious illness and can even be fatal for your pet. At Oak Brook Pet Hospital, our experienced team can quickly recognize the signs of a parasite infestation or parasite-related sickness, offer treatment options, and get your pet back to good health.
Seeing your pet’s health decline, especially when there’s little more that can be done, is a difficult experience for any owner. Our staff of trained and compassionate veterinary professionals have years of experience in treating pets at every stage of life. We can help you through the process of caring for an elderly, terminally ill, or dying pet.
