Fantastic and knowledgeable, "Exotic Veterinarian." Dr. Valenti treated our 6 year old iguana, Ian for parasites which we had no clue our beloved pet had at the time. When our home lost power for 5 hours last winter, our iguana caught an upper respitory infection and passed away very quickly. Dr. Valenti went the distance to try and save him and was so kind and caring to our feelings as well. He is definetely a compassionate knowledgeable man.
We live in Chicago, far NW side, but travel just for this Vet. My little boy had diabetes and Dr. Valenti was absolutely great with him. He showed me how tu administer injections (believe me this was the last thing I wanted to do twice a day) and how to monitor Alcatraz's sugar. Always answered any questions completely. When it came time for my baby to be put down, Dr Valenti was wonderful.After that I told Dr Valkenti if he ever went somewhere else to please let us know. We have another dog now who has epilepsy and Dr. Valenti is the same with her. While it is inconvient to travel, this is the vet I want for my dog. He is truly a great vet.
PROS: Compassionate, Great with dogs with special needs.
CONS: Not one thing
