I had been going to Blum for about 10 years and at first loved the place. They diagnosed my puppy who was very sick. But over time the more senior vets left and a new breed has come in and their goal is to soak as much money out of you on each visit as they can.

We took our cat in because she had started peeing outside the cat box. We had been told by friends with cats this often happens when the cat has a urinary tract infection or some other kidney or bladder infection. When I got there I was told when by the lady behind the counter that the ct was behind on her shots but that they would probably recommend holding off until they knew what was wrong with the cat. Seemed to make sense as I know with kids they do not like to give them shots when they are sick. So the doctor recommends xrays and blood tests. Not sure why the xrays were needed but he assured me they were. I love my cat so I agreed. he also said that she was behind on her shots ans they should do those now. I asked about what the nurse had said about giving shots to the cat without knowing what was wrong with her. He told me the cat needed the shots as if she bit someone she would have to be impounded and if she got near another cat she could get sick. I told him this was the most mellow cat and NEVER went outside or near other cats. He assured me this was the time to get the shots. I agreed and left $400 lighter still not knowing what was wrong as the xrays showed nothing (shockinig huh).

I came home from work the next day to a dead cat. Thanks Blum.

Blum was recommended to me by another vet when I moved here. They have world class diagnostic capabilites and they are an AAHA certified hospital which means they have maintained the highest of standards for many years. As important as their medical skils, they are compassionate, always willing to answer questions, and true animal lovers. They have always given me choices and have collaborated with a holistic vet I also work with. I have had them call me at home on Christmas day just to say that my sick animal was doing ok.

I took my two cats to this vet for over three years. I would not recommend it. In fact, looking back, I regret it. All the vets I encountered there would never give me a choice of care, they made the decisions for me and I wouldn't find out how much it cost me until I got to the counter. I lost a lot, a lot of money that way.
Additionally, the vets refused to refill prescriptions unless I brought the cat back in, "holding it over my head" as if I didn't care about my pets! Each time it cost more and more money. I don't mind spending money on my cats, but the arrogance of these vets is amazing. Finally I stood up for myself and left.

The staff at blum are always happy to see you and your pet. I swear the people are so passionate about preventative care for your animal. They will even call you if you miss your annual checkup.

I use to take my old dobie to them as i lived in that area at the time. the staff is wonderful with animals and talks to them and treats them like "little people". and they always have treats on hand to give your pet to help calm there nerves.i've taken my dog there for years and always got #1 service. there facilty is very clean and they get to you promptly and take care of your animal in a great way. the only downfall is that it can be hard to find parking on the street,but they do have a paid parking lot located right next door to them. there prices are a little higher than other vets,but you definently get great service for your money.

I started visiting Blum when I got my first puppy. They are a wonderful animal hospital. There are several vets there, and in an urgent situation they are always able to get me in right away. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the vets are all great, and I totally trust them with the care of my dogs. The hospital itself is clean and modern - not one of those dingy, wood-paneled vet offices.

Blum is a favorite among a lot of Chicago residents, and I highly recommend them.
