I am very happy with the services I received at Emergency Veterinary Services of Lisle. I brought one of my dogs to Dr Smith for a dental issue. Dr Smith is a competent and caring vet. I am grateful to her for taking such good care of my Boy! And she is really caring with dog parents too. My dogs are like my kids and I am thrilled that EVS and Dr Smith are there! It's good to know there is a place I can take them in an emergency where I trust we will all be taken care of. I wish they had a regular clinic as well as the emergency clinic. I'd start going there in a heartbeat for the routine care of my dogs.

We brought our young dog because she stopped eating or drinking and had a fever. We knew that there was a $95 visit fee. The vet asked to do one blood test without mentioning the cost.

After running the test, he still had no idea what was wrong. He prescribed antibiotics without offering a diagnosis.

Checking out, we learned that the one blood test was really a long list of tests and procedures, and that we were left with over $500 in fees.

My wife was crying because she didn't know how we were going to pay the bill. The vet was completely unapologetic, and said she should have asked for the cost first.

Our regular vet would never run all these tests without mentioning cost, and one blood test has never ended up as a $500+ bill.

I believe the vet here is completely unprofessional and gave us substandard care. We left with a broad spectrum antibiotic and no idea what was wrong.

I recommend looking far and wide for another vet before considering this business.

I admit in the past we have had ok luck with this clinic for emergencies, but last night my experience there changed everything. I will NEVER go back. Our beloved cat of 16 years started showing signs that his kidney blockage may be incurable. The vet on duty at EVS never said hello, never even looked at the cat, and when we started explaining what was going on - as if we were interrupting her dinner break - she said (and I will NEVER forget this) "so do you want me to unblock him or just euthanize him?" When I asked if she could be a little more compassionate, she replied (again, word for word) "look, I do this 5 times a day...I've said nothing unprofessional... it's not my fault your cat is old and sick." All true, but pet lovers, is this the kind of person you want treating your pet? Maybe it's just one vet there, but I won't take the chance again. Since I couldn't let someone with so little feeling about us or our cat handle him, I called our regular vet's answering service who directed us just up the street to the Arboretum View Animal Hospital. The difference was night and day! The facility is cleaner and more welcoming, and everyone there was very kind and compassionate. Instead of EVS's bum's rush (and we were the only ones there, so it wasn't like she didn't have time for us), the people at the Arboretum View Animal Hospital made a horribly sad situation a lot more bearable. Seriously, do yourselves and your pets a favor; Arboretum View Animal Hospital is 5 minutes up the road and a world of care better.

So the emergency vet place in Lisle off ogden avenue on Friday 2/18/2011 ruined my year. poor rascal my dog on friday fell down the stairs and we rushed him to lisle animal hospital of ogden not only did my dog not receive stitches he was not in my opinion properly checked out. We called back when we got home cuz the dog was still bleeding and they were closed. Yes 24 hours was closed we were forced to go to the emergency vet in Downers Grove which was great and possibly saved my dogs life. Next time I have an emergency with pets I am not gonna go to the place in lisle

I have used EVS several times over the 35 years it has been around, It is an excellent practice, just like anywhere else ,things can happen, you cant please everyone all the time, in regards to the pyometra. A Female dog should be spayed do to the gross over population of unwanted animals . Instead of ranting and raving about a misdiagnosis you should be reading up on how to be a responsible dog owner. As for the blockage people.... really?.... Your clearly upset about cost. The Problem with these reviews is they are so very one sided. No one is perfect.....this place has been around for a long time and continues to remain and that should speak volumes...

Sunday night at 10pm decided to bring my dog into Lisle Emergency Animal Hospital. It had been 3 days since she last ate. Thought maybe she had some sort of blockage. There were Xrays taken and then I was called into the exam room where the Vet informed me that my dog had a tumor so large that she needed emergency surgery to remove it, and that she may not last through the night if I didn't do the surgery. The Dr. told me she had seen this before and that 98% of these tumors are cancerous. She could lock the doors and operate on her tonight but odds are she will not make it. She suggested that perhaps another alternative would be to just put her down tonight. Well you can only imagine the pain and sadness I felt. I told her I needed to think about what I should do and I would get back to her..I went home and turned on the computer and started my search for what could be the cause of my dogs problems. To my surprise, there was another possible cause for her illness and so called tumor. With a little research I found that this could be a enlarged uterus ( my dog is not spayed). So I called and told the hospital I would pick her up at 730am and bring her to her regular vet and have him check her out. After paying $750.00 dollars for and overnight stay and xrays, I brought her to Dr. Carlson her regular vet in Carol Stream at 8am where he informed me after doing only a hands on review of the dog and looking at her xrays that she had something called Pyometra which was an infection of the uterus and he could do emergency surgery now. The office informed me that looking at the blood work from the Lisle Animal Hospital it was very clear that she had some sort of infection. I was so happy not to have made the choice to put her down.. I picked he her from Dr. Carlsons offfice spayed and ready to come home.

I went to EVS 2 nights ago with our beagle, paid for XRays to determine that she had severe bladder stones. The recommendation was surgery but because it was costly ($1300) and we already use another vet, we decided to go home in the middle of the night and get a second opinion the following day. However, immediately that following evening we returned for her surgery. The surgery was done but we were advised that a catheter could not be utilized due to a blockage. I wonder why that blockage wasn't identified earlier before the decision to do surgery was made. I received the phone call with bad news after I called to check on her and they immediately recommended putting the dog down. I told them to wait until I could drive back to say a goodbye although she was still under anestesia anyway.
I don't know what to tell people about this clinic...we've been there before because it's kinda the only afterhours clinic there is in the west suburban area, and in that regard, it is appreciated. However, I am angry that the potential complications of surgery were not better addressed with us. I know it is a business and therefore needs to make money, but I also feel that the way they operate is like a used car dealership rather than a compassionate medical practice. Of course, I had to pay the entire estimate despite the outcome which I also found to be surprising as I left $1400 poorer with a dead dog that I brought in alive (albeit sick). I would recommend this place for true emergencies only because of the lack of other options, but I would never ever go back for a surgery.

I was just at this EVS this summer. The emergency office fee for Lisle Emergency Service is $95 which is pretty much standard at most emergency after-hours animal hospitals and is a reasonable fee. Skokie Emergency Hospital and Midwest Bird & Exotic Emergency Hospitals also charge the same $95 office walk-in fee. Skokie and Midwest are both excellent animals hospitals and I highly recommend them, they are just way too far for me unless I have to take one of my birds in, which has happened in the past.

This Emergency Clinic was recommended to me by another vet for my cats and dogs, especially after my previous experience with that other emergency veterinary animal hospital in the same area.

This summer it was necessary that I take my dog in for emergency surgery to his foot. Everyone there was friendly and went out of their way to accommodate me. My dog was seen immediately, the DVM on call knew exactly what was needed, was familiar with the disease my dog has and took care of everything quickly. Total costs for anesthesia, the surgery and the office fees were economically fair and under $200. No padded fees, no trying to push medication on my pet that he didn't need. They called me at home, told me my dog was awake and ready to go home and everything turned out exceptionally well. There were no secondary infections from the surgery, no problems at all.

I recommend Lisle Emergency Veterinary Service and so do several other people I know that have had to utilize their services.

I visited this ER vet today - the ER visit charge is $95, not $300!!! The receptionist asked me several questions to confirm that I needed an emergency vet, rather than waiting to see my regular vet. Since there was a question for my male cat regarding urinary blockage, I chose to come in. The staff was terrific - explained my options, made sure I understood what I should watch for with my cat, gave me some dietary advice, and my total bill was $197 - including a pain shot, an antibiotic shot, an anal gland cleaning which I requested (and which priced out exactly as my regular vet would charge), and a course of Baytril. They will also fax my cat's visit records to my regular vet. I am very glad this practice is here. And of course you pay more for the hours, tools and expertise that any ER practice must have.

I am in the veterinary field....but do not work at this hospital. But...in their defense, people come in with sick animals all the time and unfortunately we have to charge for our services. A lot of people think just because their animal is sick and it is an "emergency", that they should receive care. Like any other business, we require payment. I am sorry you felt as though you were being "ripped off" but you would not believe the number of owners that do not pay their bills or dump their pets at emergency clinics. You can thank those people for the strict policies (the fact that payment must be made as services are rendered) that we must enforce.

Lisle animal hospital is nothing more then a rip off. They expect cash up front for sick animals. Starting at 300.00 dollars just to walk through the door! Knowing they are working emergency hours, they know you have no other choice but to pay. Because we did not have cash available we waited for our vet to open. He charged us 87.40. That is a very far cry from the starting payment of 300.00 dollars. After telling my friends about the experience, I was told that several of them had the same problem. I am HORRIFIED by their business practice. I wonder how many pets have died as a direct result of their charging practices!
