Dr. Luka, and in particular his daughter Dr. Leslie, are both great. They provide extremely affordable care to many pet owners who might otherwise not get the appropriate care for their pets. Make no mistake, the place is not glamorous, in fact, it's a bit rough. More importantly however, both Joseph and Leslie genuinely care about animals and do their best to find a solution that works for you. If you want a venue that looks a feels like a Michigan Avenue plastic surgery office and a doctor that "recommends" $2,000" procedures at every turn...then look elsewhere. If you want accommodating, affordable and caring service from two truly good people, then call Delta

Dr.Luke is evil he killed my 9 year old cat due to his negligence. my cat didn't have a blood test before giving him shots my cat had kidney disease the shots made him very sick and his kidney failed .I hope people read this before he kills another animal if you have your pat there run and get him stay away from Delta animal hospital or you will be sorry like I am now. I hope someone reads this who's in position to set a protest outside that hospital or a class action lawsuit. I want justice. contact me at :davisa2521@yahoo. com

I had surgery done for My 9yr old german shepard.\nThe tumor removed same day, took him home.\nDoing fine I had quote for same surgery at Banfield Animal Hospital priced double.\nI would recommend Vet, you need to research your pets symptoms before proceeding.

Pros: Surgery

First off the place smells no worse than any other vet I have been to....and I've had several dogs and cats throughout my life. The place is small and not super modern but the service was good. Dr. Luka took care of my kitty I actually switched vets b/c the one I had previously couldn't diagnose him properly. So service was pretty good prices were pretty good I would recommend for common veterinary needs, however for more serious cases maybe not only because like I said not super modern or updated.

my puppy was 3 months when she fractured her leg. i took her to dr.luka because he took walk ins. he took x-rays and said she had a slight fracture. he sent her home same day and just gave me some pills for the pain and said she'll be fine just rest. my puppy couldn't even walk and cried when she did try. i took her back for a check up because she was limping. he told me to put her down to walk and she actually walked fine because she knew where she was at and didnt want to stay. he said she needed surgey. was going to make the leg the same length, so the limping would stop. i left her in his hands but made a horrible mistake. my dog was dramatized when i picked her up. he didnt do nothing but opened her up, cut her nerve vein and closed her bak up. my poor baby leg is the sized of her puppy leg while other legs are well developed; her leg is shorter, muscles not developed and still limping . never again will take her there!

After reading all the reviews, I took my two Coton De Tulear's to the doctor for basic immunizations today. I realized it was a family owned and run business, some bickering went on in office, true, not appropriate under most circumstances, but who cares. They charged exactly what was quoted, most vets try to sell,sell, sell more shots, meds, etc. They have the the shots that do not include the Lepto, which many dogs will have bad reactions to (do your research). I will be returning in October to have my boys teeth cleaned, I will follow up on the outcome of that.

My wife and I took our Doberman Pinscher to Dr. Luka to have a series of procedures performed after Dr. Luka guaranteed me an amazing price over the phone.\n\nWe arrived as soon as they opened on Friday morning, and the place looked clean and smelled fresh. The doctors kept in contact with us throughout her stay to keep us updated on her condition throughout and after surgery, which was greatly appreciated.\n\nThe next morning, we picked her up around noon. There were several other dogs either in surgery or in the kennels, and we did notice a smell only because the kennels are right next to everything. It's in the city though, so what do you expect?\n\nOur dog looks unbelievable. Surprisingly, when we picked her up, she didn't seem upset or distraught about her stay overnight, which is more than I can say for other places I've taken other animals to. The doctor gave us clear instructions on the proper care and maintenance of her incisions, and offered us deworming and recommended special vitamins for our dog's diet, at a better price than pet store's mind you, however we weren't interested and simply said ""No, thank you"", to which the doctor replied, ""OK"". Very nice people. \n\nOverall, we couldn't have been happier with our experience with Dr. Luka. \n\nThe final results of her surgery will be revealed in a few months, but from the looks of it, everything looks perfect, even before it's beginning to heal. \n\nI would most certainly recommend Dr. Luka to anyone looking for a good surgeon, who doesn't charge out the rear for simple procedures, this is your doctor. Some of the places we got quotes from, actually quoted us as much as $500-$1000 more than what Dr. Luka performed for all 3 procedures.\n\n

ZERO STARS!\r\n\r\nthis place is HORRIFIC. I called earlier today to ask about getting some vaccination records faxed over, and the phone conversation i had was so rude and unprofessional i couldnt even belive that I was speaking to a real buisness. They answered the phone ""Hello? ....yea what do you want."" I asked for the records and was told that whoever I was speaking to didn't have the authority to use the fax machine. (what?????) I then asked to speak to someone who COULD use the fax, and was told whoever that was couldn't be there until next monday (this was a tuesday.) The rude, incompetent person then tried to tell me that the dogs didnt need the vaccinations i was asking for (because ""They already got da pillz. they dont need shotz they already on the heartgaurd pillz"") The fact that they dont heartworm test is a potentially fatal practice. I asked to speak to a manager, and he put me on the line with a veternarian who questioned why i even cared about a dogs vaccinations, and told me that the facility dosent even OWN a fax machine. I asked him his name, he got angry, and started screaming at me until i hung up. It was horrible. Anyone who takes their dog here has GOT to be crazy. How are they in buisness????

I recently received a dog that Dr. Luka did a health certificate for. The dog in question was a clear case of NEGLECT. He is a 70 pound dog and was gone from me for 6 months. In that time the dog lost 18 pounds and Dr. Luka of Delta Animal felt that this emaciated dog was safe to travel in temperatures of 25%. When called and questioned, he just attempted to rush me off the phone with no care what-so-ever for the dogs condition.

Dr. Luke is arrogant, high minded and he does not like to get his hands dirty. My sweet dog needed help and he told me to do it myself. Then he said, take him to someone else. He's no good and I hope they shut him down!

Yes it smells ripe and is not a modern glitzy vet office but I have been going to Delta for 15 years or more and have been always more than satisfied. My dog had a problem and I felt like the technology was not right to correct the issue. Went to another vet, got piles of medication, and a large bill but the problem did not go away. I went back to Delta and tried their simple, home remedy and the problem cleared up in a matter of days. When my dog was at the end of it's life they were honest and forthright. I again did not believe them and went to another vet. They said 'no worries', and charged me lots of money and gave me lots of pills. Delta was again right. The guy knows his stuff, is always available, fairly priced, and as honest as is humanly possible. My new dog is his patient and I have no hesitations about recommending Delta to anyone.

I took my dog in for a minor operation - sore that was infected had to be removed. He advise me that one of his testicle was in his stomach and had to be removed or he would go blind. So he preceded with the operation and sure enough my dog went blind. Prior to my dog going fully blind, I asked him is there something we could do. His reply was "PUT HIM TO SLEEP".

All i have to say is that if you need a vet.this guy is not the on.He gives bad info and advise his practice is dirty and he does not care about your pet.Dr.luke did not test my dog when i needed help but instead he told me my dog had bad cancer and she would only live 2 more months,after taking my dog to a real vet and after a complete checkup,results no cancer just bacteria.Which if i would of listend to dr.luke and made the choice to put my dog down because he with out checking told me she was dying.Don't take your pets there if you care about them (cats,dogs,birds,what ever you got!!).

OK, the office is dated and the smell is a little bad but not no different from many other vet office I've been to. I bring my dogs to Dr.Luka for all my minor pet medical needs. I been to the back of the facility and it is very clean. He has provided great care for my pets. You can negotiate a price with him. People, think about all those animal lovers that can't afford more expensive vets. Looks and smells are not everything!! The staff does care. He needs to update his facility, I agree. I recommend him to many lower economic pet owners. It's better than no care at all!! The reviewer with the terminally ill pet, I'm so sorry for your lost! I can't imagine.

I should have listened to the other reviews but decided to take a chance. My cat was suffering from mouth problems and I thought it was her teeth. I went to Delta who gave a cursory look, diagnosed gingivitis put her under and cleaned the teeth and I left thinking I got a good deal at 150 dollars. A week or so later she still wasn't eating so I took her back and he acted like he barely remembered and looked at her again, gave her a tiny bit of water in an IV and a shot of B12 for appetite and sent me on my way. Went back again a month later due to further deterioration of cat's condition and the vet could hardly decipher his own scribbled notes on a card and I had to remind him of everything. I pointed out that her mouth wouldn't open or close all the way, the drooling, inability to meow anymore etc and he just gave me a blank look and made no comment as if he wasn't really paying attention. He took another cursory look said the gingivitis was back - jabbed a needle of antibiotics into my cat's rump making her scream, recommended more antibiotics ""until it goes away"" and sent me on my way again. At this point I started to wise up and the next day took her to Mid North Animal Hospital - a real vet for a change. Five - ten minutes into a very thorough and gentle examination the vet sympathetically broke the news that my cat has fairly advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the jaw. She has maybe 2 more months if lucky. I think it's time for Delta to hang it up.

Went back again a month later due to further deterioration of cat's condition and the vet could hardly decipher his own scribbled notes on a card and I had to remind him of everything. I pointed out that her mouth wouldn't open or close all the way, the drooling, swollen lymph gland on one side inability to meow anymore etc and he just gave me a blank look and made no comment as if he wasn't really paying attention. He took another cursory look said the gingivitis was back - jabbed a needle of antibiotics into my cat's rump making her scream, recommended more antibiotics "until it goes away" and sent me on my way again. At this point I started to wise up and the next day took her to Mid North Animal Hospital - a real vet for a change. Five - ten minutes into a very thorough and gentle examination the vet sympathetically broke the news that my cat has fairly advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the jaw. She has maybe 2 more months if lucky. I think it's time for Delta to hang it up.

If EVERYONE is complaining about this clinic, Has anyone reported this hospitals health issues?? Or is everyone going to keep letting people like me go there and let more pets be put in these hazzard situations?? I am surprised about the women who even LET that doctor put that thermometer in her cat, I would have told him were to stick it and it would not be in my cat!! I am so happy I read reviews it pays. Please one of you people who have been there need to go get pics and bring this person's place out in the open So, no other animals get in harms way. SHUT THIS PLACE DOWN.

I brought my kitten to this facility only because they were the only ones who would take him on short notice. a coworker found him and I wanted to get him checked out before I brought him home. When I arrived the place was very unclean and had bad smell. When the doctor checked my kittens temperature he reached for a thermometer that was sitting out on the table. He then brushed it clean with just his fingers and used it on my cat. I was astonished. He didn't even use a cleaning solution or a new thermometer. I will never take my cat back there and I would not recommend this vet to anyone else.

I've been going to Delta for a long time and they care very much about the well being of your animals. He saved my dogs life after he was attacked by another dog, he had to keep him there over night and he didnt hardly charge me anything, He gave meds to take home and a follow up appointment. If i would've went any where else they would have charged me an arm and a leg and wouldnt have cared about my dog as much as the Dr's and staff at Delta Animal Hospital.

Pros: very caring, affordable and trusting.

Cons: they need a bigger space.

Yes, I have seen more modern, ""clean"" facilities, but the place is just a little old and run-down. They don't spend a lot on amenities, but the place is OK. It does not smell any worse than any other vet's office I've been to. When you have animals cages in the back of the building, do you not expect to hear barking? They obviously don't have a separate boarding ""wing.""\r\n\r\nI have been taking my dogs there for about 5 years now, and the doctor is knowledgeable about their health needs. They are gentle when bl**d tests are taken and are comprehensive about ensuring shots are up to date, heartworm testing takes place and proper dental care is performed. Overall, I have nothing to complain about. I could go to a more swanky place like so many people in Chicago feel they must do, but it's inexpensive and they take good care of the animals. That's all I need.

Please someone read this and save the animals in this disgusting place. There is no special room for contagious animals, everyone housed together-dogs and cats yelping and crying out. He uses only a shot when he spays the animals- no general anaesthesia, and charges $30 for kittens he says have been brought in from the street. Not true-he has 3 cats in the back cages he uses over and over for breeding because he says they make beautiful kittens. He says they are free then charges money for their shots. He has no breeders license. He will lie to avoid getting in trouble. Can someone help? It is dirty, the place smells-How has this place passed a health inspection?

Cons: Smelly, dirty, he is breeding felines which is highly unethical with the overpopulation we have already, and he is no friend to your animal.

Pros: really great hours and are avaliable 7 days even on sunday if its an emergency

The smell was absolutely unbearable. Puppies yelped and kittens screeched, it was straight out of a horror film. I brought my ferret there to have his eye examined - this vet was NOT knowledgeable about ferrets at all, even though he told me he was over the telephone. He gave me a liquid to rub into my ferret's eye on a daily basis...it was a dog eye-gel, which ferrets should NEVER have due to the possibility of ingestion. For the love of God, please, do not bring your pets here, it's a real horror house.

Pros: Pretty cheap but NOT worth your time

Cons: facility stinks, animals are treated poorly, dr. is a crock

It is truly unfortunate that there is such a place as this...You bring in a sick pet, the vet tells you it needs to stay overnight for observation (not true! - the facility closes in the early evening, therefore no one is there to watch your pet overnight), and when you come to pick up your beloved pet the next day, they return it to you filthy and literally covered in their own crap...Such unsanitary conditions do not help your pet get better any faster...They claim in their ad that they are low cost - this is not the case, and yet they ask you how much you paid for your pet, as if to charge you based on that...There are other vets in the city whose facilities are very clean and you get supreme quality vet services for around the same price, if not cheaper...

My cat had an eye infection so I took him to Delta Animal Hospital for the first time. The place smelled horrible and was obviously filthy. The vet said my cat's eyes and ears needed to be flushed out but would not let me stay in the room while he cleaned them. He gave me medication for my cat's eyes, which so far does not appear to be helping. On top of all that, he charged me twice as much as my old vet would have. Needless to say, from now on I'll go back to my old vet which is now out of the way but worth taking my cats there so their health is well looked after.

PROS:
CONS: BAD, UNSANITARY AND EXPENSIVE

I just moved to a new neighborhood and thought it would make sense to switch to a vet nearby. My cat had an eye infection so I took him to Delta Animal Hospital for the first time. The place smelled horrible and was obviously filthy.
