The Best cant say enough just went through two years of a very sick dog and the staff at Preiser were so caring and attentive to the very end. They were so compassionate and responsive. There is no doubt there number 1 interest is your pet and not money like so many other vets I have been to in Glenview. I would strongly recommend them.

They have superior vet care and amazingly fair prices. This is by far the best vet we have ever used! I was afraid I would sacrifice competent care for cheap prices, but that was incorrect. They are amazing!!!

Preiser Animal Hospital is the best Animal Hospital around. My two dogs receive excellent care whenever I bring them to Preiser and the staff treats them so well. I really believe my dogs get better care at the vet than I receive from my own doctor! I know that anytime I bring them to Preiser they will be well taken care of and will return in good health and happy!

I have used Preiser Animal Hospital on multiple occasions and most recently my two dogs needed a checkup. The staff, as always, was very friendly and took time to give my dogs some love instead of just jumping into the exams which I appreciated. I love how gentle and kind they are with the animals and how knowledgeable they are. This is a fantastic Animal Hospital!

I recently had to switch animal hospitals because of a few issues that arose at my last one but I am so glad that I found Preiser Animal Hospital. From our very first visit I could tell that Norman was in good hands and would be very well cared for every time he needed to go to the vet. Thank you for having such a wonderful, safe place for me to bring Norman for his health needs!

I love the staff at Preiser Animal Hospital. When my puppy became sick with Parvo they were real helpful. They nursed my puppy back to good health. When I got her back she was a brand new puppy like she was never sick. The staff and doctors there are very reasonable and understanding. I have been taking my puppy there ever since. I wouldn't trade them for the world!!!

Dr. Preiser was excellent. The last vet we visited was not friendly and did not seem engaged or concerned with my cat's condition. Dr. Preiser was the opposite and completely refreshing.Thank you!

Amazing staff and care. We took our cat to Preiser Animal Hospital two times over the weekend because he wouldn't stop vomiting. While we are still trying to find the source of the vomiting with our regular vet the supportive care he received at Preister Animal Hospital during our regular vet's off hours was amazing. The staff was very kind and explained our options clearly. This has been extremely stressful but Preister Hospital has made a bad situation better with their kindness and care for our cat.

My husband's mother took her pets to Preiser from 1974 until she passed in 1993, so when he and I got our first cat in 1995, we took her there for her care, and had not one problem in the 13 years we had her. We have four cats now, a second cat that had passed away, and the staff has always cared for all our babies in such a wonderful, kind way. I appreciate the fact that if one of the doctors is not sure about something they will bring another doctor into the room to discuss options on how to care for whatever cat we have brought in for treatment. Last year our male diabetic cat had a stroke and we had to take him to the ER, but the doctors at Preiser kept in close contact with the ER vets for the three days that Mister was in the hospital. They are keeping a close eye on Mister's condition, and some of his stroke symptoms are improving. I would trust no other vet with the care of my children, and Dr. Becker does some great things with exotics, which most vets do not do. Their prices are very fair, especially when compared to Banfield; just out of curiosity I had Banfield quote a procedure and they were five times as much as what Preiser charged for the exact same thing. I highly recomment Preiser

We love Preiser Animal Hospital. They are concerned for our pets' lives as we are. They always take the time needed and talk through all the alternatives with us. Dr. Preiser will take the time to find internet articles and email them or the link so we can learn more. I remember sitting with the senior Dr. Preiser while he went through a medical textbook and explained my dog's eye condition.

They try to use the least invasive treatment and are wonderful to work with. We tried the new laser treatment on an open wound hoping it would help heal it. We have been going there over 10 years and wouldn't think of going anywhere else. I've referred many frfriends and they say the same thing.

As for the lady that said she was embarassed by the staff (Jan B), I was in the waiting room that day. I agree she should have been embarassed but by her own actions, not what anyone at Preiser did to her. She was unreasonable and contradictory and clearly didn't want to pay her bill. Shame on you Jan B for even bringing this up, they tried hard to work with you and you were the "nasty people" you wrote about. Jamie and Dr. Preiser were very professional to you despite your outrageous behavior. If it had been my practice, I would have asked you to leave. Did you ever go back and pay your bill?

I agree that 10 years ago Preiser was a GREAT place. Iv used them for around 20 years with many pets. I feel that it is not the same. Im very unhappy with them now. Especially their front desk people who can't seem to do their jobs properly. They totally screwed up my bill. I had my visit, gave my credit card to pay my bill in full, and then a month later they sent bills stating it was not completely paid. I have other issues with them but that was the final straw. I now use another vet and Im very happy with them.

We have been coming to Preiser Animal Hospital for years now, and I can say first hand that if you are looking for a animal hospital to take care of your pet, this is the best you can get. The entire staff is warm and friendly, almost like a family experience.

Dr. Kristine Preiser has taken care of both our pets needs, Natasha, and Sir Brando. She is thorough and probably one of the best vets in this area.

Our animals adore her, and early this year we had to put down our beloved Natasha, a female Seal Point Siamese of 21 years, which was very hard on our family, but Dr. Preiser exhausted all other options before we had to say good bye to our beloved Natasha.

If it was not for her, and the entire staff at the hospital we do not know what we would have done. Two days after we had to say goodbye to Natasha, we received a card from the staff at Preiser Animal Hospital, and a cast of her paw print for us to hold and keep forever to remember her. This shows you how much the staff there cares, and you can rest assure that you are taking your pet to the best possible animal hospital in Illinois.

I had a horrible experience, but am not sure if it was the vet care, or just bad luck. I brought my 16 year old lab here to be put down. I chose Preiser because it was cheaper than my usual vet (Care in Arlington Hts) and I was realy scraping to find the money. I was expecting the same thing I experienced 2 years earlier with my other dog at Care, she looked up at me and then slowly and quietly fell asleep. Very peaceful, I wasnt even sure she was gone. Also the vet stayed with us until the dog passed. At Preiser, the vet came in seemed rushed, gave the dog an injection, and left. Instead off peacefully going to sleep, the dog gasped for air, and began to spasm until she died. It was horrible to see such a gentle dog go so violently. I cant say foro sure, but I think they skipped giving the dog a sedative first (maybe why it was cheaper). I have only put two animals down and they were sooo drastically different experiences, I dont know if thats normal or not. But I cant look at Preiser without feeling guilty for not finding the money somehow to go back to Care. Somethings are worth spending a little more, I learned the hard way.

My family and I havent been going to Preiser for that long, but they will be our first choice for now on. We went there when our 17 year old family dog Teak had to be put to sleep. They were all so kind and caring for him and us. Since then my mom got another dog, she only brings her there, My sister takes her dog and cat there, my brother takes his three dogs there, I have four dogs I have been there twice, one to get neautered (surgery) , and the other was an emergency bleeding from dogs penis. Also we found four kittens and brought them there. The staff has always been super nice, Dr. Preiser is an awesome. She took her time with all of us, never seemed rushed or rude at anytime. I like the fact that I dont need an appointment. I mean really who knows when there animal is going to get sick.

I was torn about going to this hospital because of the mixed feelings I was seeing posted here, but I decided to find out for myself.
When we walked in, we were greeted with smiles and kindness. The staff didn't make us wait around for long since I mentioned we need a sample drawn straight from the bladder and the dog really wants to go out. I got the paperwork done, they took my pup to the room and ran the test. While they were analyzing the results we were able to go out for a walk. I REALLY appreciate the time Dr. Presier took and drew diagrams and explanations to help me understand what she found and what our next steps should be. Our other vet failed to mention all the things they found in the sample, just gave us more antibiotics, UGH! I look forward to a long relationship with this hospital and their awesome staff. As others have stated, the interior is a bit outdated, but the equipment they use is very up-to-date.

Boy, I just read one review where the person had a bad experience, but I must say this is exactly the opposite of what my husband and I have had. We've found all the folks here to be gentle and caring with both our cats and dogs, and wouldn't hesitate to bring them in -- in fact, we do! We have both dogs and cats and have had great experiences with both!

Just got back from my (and my dog's) first visit to Preiser Animal Hospital. Awesome. They were very friendly and answered all my questions too. I didn't have to spend a lot either and my dog needed some medicine... total visit was ~$50.

The facilities aren't flashy or fancy, but they're clean and complete. I can see why there are so many fans and positive reviews of this animal hospital.

I almost adopted a dog from the Heartland Shelter (basically an off-shoot of the clinic) and can tell you that these folks truly love animals. (The shelter is non-profit and not supported by tax money!) - I made a small donation while I was there :)

I feel confident that my dog is safe and well cared-for. We will be going back.

They are the best Animal Hospital in the northshore. I have been going to them for 15 years and they are reasonable and they are so compasionate to your animal. My dog has also stayed in the kennel that is attached not sure if they own that too but they were great also with my dog. Unfortunatly I am about to put my dog down and I would not trust anyone else but Preiser to take care of him in his last few minutes on this earth.
I am also very upset to hear what Cari B had to say. Everytime I have been there they have spent lots of time with my dog.
I travel 35 min to go there because all the vets by me are expensive and not as caring.

After trusting Preiser Animal Hospital for over 15 years i made the biggest mistake of my life or that of my dogs. i brought her in with the symptoms of not eating, drinking and pain on her side. The vet at the time listened to her chest, xrayed her and said she had a cold. Gave her amoxil and sent me home with the instructions of call me in 3 days if not better. The next evening my dog went into seizures, stopped breathing and i rushed her to the 24 hr. animal hospital. She is still there, after a 5 minute exam by there vet she had a puss filled uterus, became septic and in now in the icu. i think preiser should have spent more than 5 minutes with my dog, If this may have been caught sooner she might be home today. On Sunday, she had died and was brought back to life. I don't think amoxil will cure that but i'm no vet, but neither was the lady at preiser, that treated her. i should have suspected something when i had to ask her to check her ears.

I am disheartened to hear the Negative comments about Preiser. These negative comments are clearly based off emotion and not fact. Come on (Anonymous) you gave 1 star because you didn't get a discount..get real. I used to go to RISER Animal hospital in Niles, IL. and left them promptly after their oversight in a simple matter cost my puppy his life. They did not think that something my dog ingested would block his intestine. When it did we took him in and the poor care killed my dog. This is RISER we are talking about. PREISER, however, was the place that we adopted are puppy Harley from (their Not-for-profit/No-Kill shelter) and I have to say I have never been happier with their service, care, staff, knowledge and prices. I am biased however, having nothing but great service. I find a Veterinarian fee of 49.50 or whatever it is now is a small price to pay for competent Vet care. For those who are looking into whether or not to go to Preiser for their pets care, I would whole heartedly recommend them. Notice you have many positive comments with names attached to the comments as opposed to a couple negative comments left by people who would rather not be known....understandably so considering their claims are frivolous. I go to Preiser and will continue to do so as long as a Preiser family member is on Staff. Herr Preiser has seen our pups and now his daughter sees our pups.

I am disheartened to hear the Negative comments about Preiser. These negative comments are clearly based off emotion and not fact.

When we found a wounded squirrel years ago I called my current vet and asked if they could help it. I was told forget about it, it's only a "rat". Someone recommended I call Preiser. I called and they said bring it in and they amputated the tail and gave me antibiotics. When I asked what the cost was going to be dr. Preiser said "nothing". The squirrel wasn't my pet and he didn't feel right charging me anything. Now that is compassion for animals and I immediately started going to Preiser's after that. They are wonderful and I can't say enough about the care you get there. Excellent facility, good prices but most of all knowledgeable, caring, personnel. Highly recommend them.

I've been going to Preiser for a couple of years now. They do a decent job. I don't like that there's no appts., but their prices are extremely reasonable compared to vets closer to me.

These are very caring, kind, hard working people who have bills to pay just like anyone else. They also have a shelter that is NOT FOR PROFIT!
Why would you expect a discount just because you adopted a pet from there. That $7.50 really goes for a good cause.
Jaime's not rude, she only suggested what any honest business would suggest, shop around. She's probably tired of listening to idiots like you.
So Just because you have issues, you don't have to bad mouth Preiser Animal Hospital.

After adopting our dog from Heartland we investigated other neighborhood vets closer to our home and found none compared to the compassion and excellent care that we found at Preiser's. The average costs at Preiser's are less expensive too. One of the other reasons we like them is because of one man's vision, many well deserving animals have a chance in life to be adopted and live happily in loving homes. We highly recommend both the hospital and shelter.

For absolutely wonderful compassionate care for your fur-babies,
go to Preiser's. The Vets, Techs, and all the employees are
all terrific.

Dr. Preiser founded Heartland Animal Shelter,
which is located next door. It was his dream to have a place so homeless cats and dogs may have a chance...for myself this was what originally convinced me to check them out. I am so glad I did.
I am very happy with Preisers.

I first started going to Preiser when my other and much more expensive vet was closed due to a weather related incident. Preiser has vets WHO CARE and ARE KNOWLEDGEABLE. I have gotten excellent care there and find them extremely fair in pricing. I also adopted a second dog from their shelter (Heartland) and would highly recommend them, too.

I was attracted to this practice because of its past history on the use of alternative health, or so displayed on the outside of their building. I was disappointed that they pruned down their offerings when I finally brought my cat in for a check up. Unfortunately, I was further disappointed at the handling of my cat. Though he is a tough feline to handle, the practice could have used other methods such as sedation in order to perform some of the tests, such as xrays. And after it was all said and done, the vet came back and said "this isn't worth it." What kind of service is this? I only give them 1 star because they carry Standard Process supps. Otherwise a goose egg.

July 10, 2009 update: for the folks that questioned low rating reviews. I will only comment on my experience. For those who had good to great service from Preiser, I am happy for all. Continue to bring your pet(s) to this practice if that is the case and you are satisfied. Unfortunately, it wasn't the case for my feline and myself. I still can picture how my cat was gasping for air for two hours after the visit due his asthma. It was truly a bad experience. The sad part was the practice offered no solution, no options, or follow up. I felt abandoned. But I never complained. I moved on. I realize that no practice, or service is perfect, but that does not mean that I should hold back in this forum and not share what I witnessed truthfully. Fortunately, all is well. I found a local practice and a holistic vet, as well, that was willing to work with us. A year later, my feline's symptoms are minimal using natural methods and has his life back. That's what matters most.

I have been going to Preiser Animal Hospital for the last ten years and I come all the way from Elk Grove Village!! The staff has ALWAYS been nice and caring to me, Shadow and Lexie! I recently had to put my dog down, the staff was so good with me and Shadow! And regarding "Dont go here's" comment about the prices, you should know that you can "not" put a price on you Animal's care (would you put a price on your Child's??)! So on that note "GO TO PREISER ANIMAL HOSPITAL", you will not regret it!

We were so impressed with both the animal hospital and the animal shelter. We adopted our puppy after seeing it at Pet Expo at Arlington Park Race Track in March 08. We then went back the next day to the shelter with the whole family. The employees and volunteers couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Their precautions about cleanliness and proper care were impressive. They knew so much about our puppy already that it made the process fun, not stressful. Our dog has been with us just over a week and I can tell that this little 13 week old mutt received excellent care and attention during his stay at the shelter. He came to us practically housebroken, calm and quiet at night and friendly to all people visitors. Wonderful!
The vet (next building south) helped us right away due to the shelter's concerns about a cold and cough the puppy had. We were taken right away, given proper medicine, a schedule and care instructions. We left there with a wonderful feeling that they not only love their jobs but love animals, too. We are changing our vet to Preiser now from Des Plaines Animal Hospital because of our wonderful experience there.
YES! GO THERE!
