I had a number of doctors checking Angel out when I had to bring her in and all of them I want to thank for helping me get through her illness and bring her back to normal once again. I want to thank the staff too for their courtesy manner in handling everything and making Angel feel special that she will be cared for.

The costs for services seem reasonable to me - after all, I'm paying for their knowledge, their services, their staff and any supplies/drugs. My view is I can pay $4 more for an office visit and see an exotic expert who likely can get to the bottom of the problem quicker - or I can take my chances with a normal dog/cat vet who maybe sees one or two guinea pigs a week (or month). Besides, if things get serious with your exotic, often your normal dog/cat vet will refer you to Midwest for special procedures or surgery.

I think these people are excellent. I think Drs. Poliakoff and Clarkson are the best vets I've come in contact with. Just like with any vet or doctor, TALK to the doctors & staff - and tell them what your concerns are and what you want for your pet! Speak up. They'll listen & try to help!

I cannot praise the Emergency Care staff at this hospital enough. Even though my dog is not a regular patient there, I really felt they took the best care possible. The entire team was so sincere, I could not have asked for a better experience. I am confident they took every measure to prolong my pet's life. I highly recommend this animal ER. My personal vet couldn't praise them enough either as they consulted with each other on actions to be taken.

These people are exotic experts - they are much more knowledgeable about exotics than your normal vet. I've been going to them for about 2 years now, and I've never been disappointed with their work. They discuss the problem with me, advise me of my options, and always discuss the costs involved before they proceed with any work. The doctors & staff at Midwest are friendly, and you can tell they care about my animals. I've seen ferrets, turtles, iguanas, mice and zillions of birds in there.

My guinea pigs (all 16 of 'em) and I are very pleased with the doctors and staff at this exotic animal hospital. My little gals & guys have been seen there for unexpected pregnancy, eye problems, yeast problems, lice, mites, castration/spay urinary tract infections, bladder stones, colds, tumors, accidents/spine trauma, etc. You name it we had it and they have always been treated so good thank you for being there when we have needed you.

We had our bunny Koko at Midwest for an eye injury and we saw a new vet . We were very comfortable with them as well as the other doctors we see regularly.. They were very gentle and kind to Koko. He has been at Midwest since Memorial Day for a cornea injury and is being treated very well. It was done so well, his eye his healing very nicely. Cost here is NOT an issue. Once again, the doctor was VERY nice to him and us as well.

Midwest Bird & Exotic Animal Hospital in my opinion is an excellent veterinary group for animals outside of the "norm" and from what I've seen from sitting in the waiting room I'm not the only person that leaves happy knowing that my furry companion is well taken care of and recognized as an important "person" in my life.

I also really like that they make follow-up phone calls a few days after she has medical procedures done outside of routine checkups, just to see how things are going at home and if I have any questions.

I have been bringing my rabbit to Midwest Bird & Exotic Animal Hospital for six years and I honestly would not take her anywhere else for care. I haven't had any pets prior to my rabbit, let alone an "exotic" pet, and the doctors at Midwest that have treated her have not only provided what is in my opinion excellent care, but have also helped me to learn how to better care for her at home, without making me feel embarrassed for asking LOTS of questions. When my rabbit was younger I didn't visit them as often as I do now, but even then I felt like they remembered what was going on with her, and not just generically referencing her from notes. Now that she is getting older, and has more complicated issues, I always appreciate that the doctor and I can discuss whatever the problem may be with my rabbit, and can come up with plans of action to take so that when I get home I know exactly what I need to do to care for my "elder bunny".

I had a wonderful experience . They were very caring and compassionate when my pet bird passed away. It died suddenly and I brought it in , to find out the cause of his passing. They sent me a beautiful card afterward and also gave me back the body in a beautifully decorated container. Very compassionate people. Looking at the negative comments written /posted this year....at least a few of them appear to be written by the same person....grow up please!...

Its been a couple of years since I have owned a bird and had to use Midwest. However, I had an amazing experience in a very difficult time. I had a 14 year old cockatiel (who had never been to vet in Chicago) back home my aunt was a vet and would do our yearly checks.

They see a lot of animals and a lot of different kinds of owners. I can see where some feel they are pressured into certain procedures as this is the only place that can perform them. Their surgeons have a truly steady hand. I recommend them.

The veterinarians took such good care of my prairie dog. They removed her front teeth after they began to grow up into her sinus cavity which seems to be common in these little guys. They did wonderful work. They were not cheap but they are efficient and care very much about the animals they treat.

Sadly our dog had internal bleeding when we rushed him here on a Sunday afternoon, and in the end we had to put him to sleep. The staff was kind and caring, presenting our options, bringing us blankets and oxygen for George, without charging for them. They were kind as we had to decide to pursue exploratory surgery or, based on his tests, put him down. We received a handwritten card in the mail from the vet expressing sadness for our loss.

We ended up having to bring our new puppy here late one night after she started having a bad reaction to having eaten her food too fast. They got us in very quickly and had a diagnosis right away. They ended up having to "de-bloat" her. (Kind of funny in retrospect, very terrifying in the moment). Charges were high, but customary with late night emergency care. The front desk staff was very nice and the vet explained everything thoroughly. We had one very gassy baby to bring home with us, but thank goodness she was ok :)

I was referred to Midwest Bird and Exotic Animal Hospital by my local vet. From Portage, In. I had a ferret that needed surgery on her stomach. So I took her there and I love it there. So now I take all of my ferrets there. I have been going there for 9 years now. They are there for you in the middle of the night too. Dr. Poliakoff is my favorite vet. there. I live in Indiana and it takes me like an hour and a half to get there, but I don't care, its worth the drive because I know my ferrets are in good hands. So I would suggest everybody to go there for all of their exotic pets.

This place is great. I was sad that they relocated a few years ago but we still make the trip with our house rabbit. This is our third rabbit we have taken to them. This is no ordinary vet clinic-they really know their stuff. They even have educational videos playing when you go in an tons of albums filled with their loyal customers. Yes-they are pricey but you can't put a price tag on your family members. Something that helped me was getting VPI pet insurance for my rabbit. It's only about 120 a year and has really paid off. I just got a turtle and I'm looking forward to taking my turtle there as well.

We had an emergency with our baby blue and gold macaw and this animal hospital came highly recommended by my local NWIN vet when they couldn't adequately address the problem. After driving 1+ hrs, we were seen after only a brief wait and received the undivided attention and expert perspective of Dr. Poliakoff. She examined our bird without incident (and bird owners know this to be quite a feat in itself!), and guided us to the the best course of treatment and followup observation. I would travel to them again in a heartbeat, and to those of you who squawk about the cost, they are regional experts who are worth their weight in gold... and worth whatever they want to charge!

"This clinic was able to help me with my chinchillas when no other clinic could. I have chinchillas that have had dental problems and broken bones that no other vet could mend or repair. Dr. Clarkson was able to help me on many occasions with the health and well being of my chins and I am eternally grateful to her!

You will spend more money here on the advanced care your pet will receive, but I found that it has been money well spent. I recommend anybody with an exotic pet within driving distance to take your pet here. I have seen MANY vets and this place has been the VERY BEST my pets have been to."
