We are always striving to provide your pet with superior care. Here is what some of our pet parents have to say about our practice:
I can't say enough good things about Duke.
My 16 year old girl cat came down sick in July and on a Sunday morning I thought my only option was MedVet, but then I found Duke was open Sundays. Check out Duke's hours, they're uncommon and appreciated. I called as soon as they opened and they saw her within the hour. Unfortunately she was sicker than I thought [...]. They were so patient as I waited for a friend to come by for support, we occupied that room for a few hours and there was no rushing us, pushing us out the door and, most importantly, no judgement. They've thoughtfully put into place processes and procedures that are in the best interest of animals and their human companions.
Now my [other pet] is a regular patient and recently needed dental work. Same as before -- the best, most compassionate medical care. The followup, which included a few emails and phone conversations initiated by Duke, was surprising and wonderful. He's now on a geriatric diet, his teeth are better and, at nearly 17, he's behaving almost like a kitten again.
Duke really is the best option, in my opinion, for addressing the needs of their patients and offering flexibility of hours to accommodate the real life needs people with busy schedules. And most of all the kindness and compassion you get from them is downright heartwarming. I'm not one to Oprah-fy things, but I'm full of gratitude to have discovered Duke Animal Hospital.

Great experience, very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Got me in on a moment’s notice for an emergency visit with my cat. Did everything my previous vet did and then some for less than half the cost. Highly recommend this animal hospital to anyone.

I recently had to take my cat in for an ear infection. While the facility, doctor and staff are all great, I have to give a special shout out to [...] a vet technician that made me and my cat feel especially welcome.
She was great and very calming with my super stressed out cry baby cat. Then, on our return visit she remembers my cat, and sends me a picture of him in his "laser goggles" from his therapy. After all that, [she] then sits with us and answers all my questions about my pet. Such a thoughtful person and a natural healer.

Duke is a great animal hospital! Knowledgeable, caring, & friendly staff. Regular emails after my dog gets shots, just checking in to make sure she wasn't having a bad reaction. Their evening/weekend hours are a huge plus.

We've been taking my cat and dog to Duke for years now, and have had a great experience every time. The front desk answering the phone are always so friendly and try to accommodate last minute non-emergency requests as best they can. My dog can be aggressive towards some dogs and the techs always do a fantastic job of letting us get into a room as quickly upon arrival as possible and then go out of their way to make sure we have a clear path on our way back out. Prices are reasonable, and the staff is incredible.

This is by far the most professional and friendly vet office in town. They are super transparent when it comes to cost. I would not take my puppy anywhere else. They also do have very convenient hours in the evening and weekends.

This was a wonderful hospital for my babies. Duke is really honest and upfront about charges. They do not perform services without your consent. They follow up a few days after your appointments. This is one of the only vets in Chicago that accepts reptiles. The area is cozy and the use of purple is just about everywhere. There is coffee or water for anyone coming in, and the area is cleaned every night. I would (and have) recommend others to go here for their animal needs.

Let me just start off by saying that my two cats have high anxiety about many things going on in their life (because sleeping, eating, and pooping is so rough). So being a first time patient here was a little nerve racking for my husband and I, and our two (fur) children. But when we arrived, they were both calm and the whole place was super serene! The cats even got to check out the turtle!!
Everyone that helped today was absolutely amazing. You can tell that they actually care about animals and their well-being. They were very thorough about vaccinations, what they were, why they got them and answered any and all questions that we had!
Our cats were super chill about exploring the room we were in and not freaking about about noises behind the doors. Overall, this is one of the best experiences I've ever had at a veterinary clinic, and we will be back.

Doctors and staff are great. First time here. On a Sunday! They explain procedure and cost before anything is done. I have been to many veterinarians with my pets. Duke by far stands out.
My cat needed hospilization, I felt completely confident in their care for her.
Beatris U., on Google March 2019
Great friendly staff. Place is super clean and nice. The prices are very fair. They take great care of your animals and provide realistic recommendations. They spend the time to discuss with you the different options and possible outcomes. They are very passionate and knowledgeable about animals. I would trust them with my pets life again and again. Postoperation care is amazing. They really make sure the pets are fully recovered before sending them home. All around great place, highly recommend!

I hate going to the vet with my cats, but I had an emergency and decided to bring Bolt here. Was a great experience! The vet was really kind and professional. She answered all my questions without making me feel i shouldnt ask questions. She explained everything and gave me peace of mind. The staff were very attentive as well. The long hours that the hospital has are also very conveniente. Great vet! I would def recommend it.

We have a couple of guinea pigs and needed to find a vet for one of them since he had a few lumps that needed to be removed. We booked to see Dr. Duke and had a quick, easy, first vet visit and a super successful surgery a week later. Dr. Duke and her staff are very friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable. It is so great to find a vet who you can trust and know that they care about your little ones as much as you do. Thank you Dr. Duke!

Duke Animal Hospital has always provided exceptional, loving care for our Boston. We even moved away and remain loyal to Duke Animal Hospital despite the travel inconvenience. Our girl LOVES visiting the vet! Thank you to everyone at Dr. Duke's for taking such good care of all of us!
As a bonus they work with a great trainer there. We did the puppy classes and our five year old still knows the commands we learned there.
Paige O., on Yelp January 2019
I’ve been bringing my dog here for about a year and a half. Great vets and staff. You can really tell that they care so much about animals. Very reasonable pricing, a great deal considering the high level of care they provide.
Taylor B., on Google January 2019
After our favorite vet retired at another animal hospital, we were so happy to have Dr. Gutierrez do a wellness check on our dog. It was nice to finally have a vet care so much. Dr. Gutierrez was very informative and made sure to take all the correct steps. All the staff members made sure we were all comfortable during our wait as well. We will definitely [b]e coming back!
