The doctors and nurse in general are a great group of people, however I am taking the time out to say that a new procedure needs to be implemented in the front with checkins and pickups because I as well as 5 or 6 other people waited for

Best care for animals at fair prices, must check out for all pet people. Be prepared to wait. Worth the wait.

I bring my dog to Richmond Vet normally and I wish I would have for this as well. I had an appointment to get my puppy spayed. I heard great things about Fox Lake Vet, the doctors and the price. I chose there because it was less to spay her. \nI had an appointment for 9am and everything went fine with dropping her off. I asked what time I could call to check on her and they told me 5pm. At 5:30 when I called she was just getting her surgery and she could not come home until the next day at 10am. Which bothered me that she had to sit in a cage all day. I picked her up and she was fine and healed well over two weeks. \nI brought her 2 weeks later to get her stitches out. I only waited a few minutes and thank god because there were at least 15 dogs in the waiting room. Here is where I have a HUGE problem. They brought me into a room, NOT an exam room and I asked what they wanted me to do with her.....they had me lay on the filthy floor and hold her down while he cut her stitches out. There was another dog in the room as well. I was not happy at all they had my dog who had a surgery lay on the disgusting floor as they used scissors that I am almost certain were not washed. We will never be going back. I do think they treated her well and they seemed to all love her and she did as well, but I would rather pay twice as much.....

We have been going to Fox Lake Animal Hospital for almost 10 years. While the wait can be long and discouraging sometimes we've always felt it was worth it.
We ended up here after hearing of their reasonable prices because we just couldn't afford other vets any more and it was discoraging to feel how we could take care of our dog.
My longest wait (2.5hrs) happened when I took our sick 12 year old Cocker in. We had a clue it was "that time". We had to leave him over night which was a hard to do since he had never had to stay over night in a crate but he was dehydrated. When the Doc called in the morning he was aweseome - he told us his kidneys were working at 8%. He said we could treat him and he'd OK for a few months or we could let him go but it was terminal either way. The thing that meant so much to me was he said "What ever decision you make is OK, neither is wrong and we'll support and help you handle whatever decision you make". We had already decided years before that we were going to let him go when the time came and not keep him around for ourselves.
We all went in as a family later that day and they let us spend as much time as we wanted with him. When it was time we all stayed and after they agian said we could have as much time as needed. Then they let us walk out the back door so we didn't have to walk past everyone. And the wait...in the end it was a blessing, my dog and I sat in the back of my van on a beautiful day and just chilled together for the last time.
Now we take our three year old Cocka-Poo there.

I had to add my review after I saw a couple of negative comments listed below. We have been going to FLAH for 8 years now and will not go anywhere else. Our very large dog Merlin had terrible problems when he was a puppy and the vet we had been seeing was grasping at straws as to what was wrong with him. They finally suggested allergy testing to the tune of $1800. I had mentioned this to a friend who said ??you need to take him to Fox Lake?. We went at our next available time and brought all of our records from the other vet. In ONE appointment it was determined that Merlin??s problems were allergies and had complete allergy testing done for $300. In one week we had a list of the things he was allergic to (everything we had been feeding him) and were armed with new food and supplies to help clear up his sores.

We started to take our cat here as well and her life was saved after finding a ??bladder stone? that no one else seemed to be able to find (suggestion from other vet was to put her down). She had surgery which was about $350 and she has been problem free for the last 5 years!

Last but not least, we are going in this week about a tumor that Merlin has on his tail. A visit last week to an emergency vet clinic in the Milwaukee area cost us $100 and an estimate of $2800 to $3400 to remove the tumor or tail??whichever they determined was needed. In calling FLAH after the holiday, this same procedure will cost us $200-400.

No, you don??t get an appointment ?? its first come, first serve. But you are also not paying for all the fancy dancy (and almost 100% of the time unnecessary) extras that some of those other vets charge. So be prepared, you will more than likely have to wait ?? but for the LEVEL OF CARE you will receive and inflated price you won??t??. it??s worth the wait!

First come first serve? Worth the wait! I have had some rough times with my dogs over the last year or so (one had pancreatitis, the other cancer) and cannot express my gratitude for the professionalism and kind heartedness Dr. Koya and Jessica (tech) displayed to both me and my four-legged children. I've been to other places in the past and cannot help but feel bothered when they try to sell me an array of products and charge an arm and leg for basic services, ultimately making a trip to the vet intimidating and stressful. That does not happen at the Fox Lake Animal Hospital. No sales pitches to try to guilt you into buying products and the prices for their services are fair. I am unlikely to change vets ever again and am grateful to have found the team at Fox Lake Animal Hospital.

We just got back from Fox lake animal hospital. We had never been there before, but had heard so many good things about it from clients of mine. Went online and read some stellar reviews.
Our 21(+) yr old cat Max had not been doing so well for the last 48 hrs. We knew the time was coming for him to go to the "Rainbow bridge".
We called FLAH and they were very helpful. We didn't have any wait at all. They took us into a room, explained what was about to happen, allowed us to remain with max while he transitioned, and gave us our privacy while we mourned the loss of a lifelong dear friend.
Very reasonably priced. very professional and courteous.
I will highly recommend FLAH to anyone who has a pet!

I was refered to this place by a friend. First time visit. After reading the reviews here, I planned on visiting early the next day. Gave them a call to ask what time people start to get there and the lady says they are not real busy right now and might be a good time to come in (approx. 3:30 pm). Boy, was she right! Got there about 3:50 and there was not one person in front of me. Dr. Nora treated my cat. She was professional, caring and kind. Was out of there in about 25 minutes. Consultation, ingrown nail cut back and removed from arm, antibiotics = $42.00.
I you want an animal hospital that is all fancy and new, this is not the place for you. But if you want quality care at a very reasonable price, this is the place.

I have been taking our pets (dogs, ferretts, birds,) to FLAH for almost 15 years and will go no where else for my pets health needs. The doctors are caring and very knowledgeable, as well as terribly compassionate! When my little dog recently had a massive infection they were quick to comfort him, as well as myself! While my little guy needed to be sedated before he could be treated, they were awesome about explaining to me why it was best for him to undergo the sedation which allowed more through examination and treatment. This all took place right at closing hours and they were all very patient and stayed well beyond closing time in order to accomodate my pet's needs. I left with confidence and a much happier pet! My total cost... $68 and that included the take home meds and anethesia!

I took my cocker spaniel there for what I thought would be surgery to remove a growth on her eye, diagnosed by oher vets. At another clinic this would be a several thousand dollar surgery so I tried Fox Lake because I was told by friends that they were reasonable.\r\n\r\nI did not wait long- as a surgical consult I had an appointment as opposed to waiting a long time- and the doctor and staff were very caring, very thorough. While I waited in the back treatment room for the doctor (about 15 minutes, not long) I saw a lot of treatment and the staff- they all seemed really competent and caring. The doctor was very thorough- did a very thorough exam on my nervous, mean dog, and told me that she did not need surgery but rather a differnt course of treatment- a specific kind of topical eye drops. They made up a generic version just for my dog . so it would not be as costly as the name brand. Bottom line? I left there paying well under three digits ( as opposed to well over four somewhere else) for great treatment, my dog did not need surgery, and my dog is happy and doing well. Thank you so much Dr. Rudowski! This place is great!\r\n\r\n

When I looked up Fox Lake Animal Hospital I saw all these great reviews. I called to see how much a surgery would be for my dog and all I have to say is I hope the doctors and other staff members are nicer than the people who answer the phones and give surgery estimates because right now I am not like this hospital at all. Not a very good first impression to say the least!!!! I will now add a PS. to this review since I just got off the phone again with them. These people are the most insenstive, thoughtless and rude people I have ever dealt with. They are so matter of fact and if you can't bring your dog in to consult with the doctor in the 3 days he has available during hours that MOST people have to work, oh well!! I don't care HOW much LESS they are then my vet now, I would NEVER bring my dog to this place!!! To whoever reads this do yourself a favor and find another animal hospital that has a personality and feelings!!!

This clinic is fantastic. Dr. Rudowski really thinks outside the box. He is wonderful! I wish he would give a class to the other vets around. I took my cat in after other vets said it would cost $2500. to do surgery to fix his ankle, or cut off the leg. Dr. R put the ankle back into place and taped the leg real good so it couldn't move. 9 weeks wait, and I am sure the results would be just as good as surgery would have been. $200. was the cost. Absolutely wonderful Dr and staff. They are extremely caring! The only problem I have was the wait. But the wait was worth it!!!

After reading the reviews I was a bit skeptical of going here... but I will NEVER go anywhere else again. There is a long wait (usually 2 hours or so) but there is a reason for the wait. It's because this vet is phenomenal and they will take the time with each animal and love it like it's their own. Dr Morgan is amazing and the whole staff was great. The prices are also just as amazing as the rest of the experience (minus the wait)! I definitley would recomend this place to everybody.

Our dog was diagnosed with ACL tear at a Bamfield Hospital ( inside Petsmart) during a four hour ordeal costing 400.00 plus dollars. We then had our x-rays read by several potential surgeons. The cost of repair surgery began at 3,000.00 and we were told there was a good chance of one stiffle surgery following the next.
A friend recommended Fox Lake Animal Hospital and we made the 45 min drive to the clinic. The surgeon, who does these repairs routinly for around 1,200. was in surgery and we gladly waited. What a kind knowledgable Vet. He diagnosed our dog with Degenerative neuropathy, told us what to expect, gave us meds and wished he could have helped him ( with surgery) Just a month latter with no pain our dog weakened to the point of returning for euthanasia. Everyone was sensitive and loving . The cost was 125.00 for creamation of a 120lb. animal. I can't thank these folks enough. They are true healers in ALL ways.

I drove 2 and a half hour and $35.00 in gas with a very sick Gerbil named Hamburger to the best Veterinarian Hospital on the planet. The front desk staff, Dr. Koya and even the other pet moms and dads were wonderful. It's a wonderful and comforting place to know that although you're so emotionally attached to your pet that they won't take advantage of you with prices. Although my Gerbil died I really want everyone to know it was worth the trip and gas to be treated so well.

I took one of my dogs to FLAH this past week for shots and to check her back at the recommendation of a few co-workers that take their animals there. I am SO glad I went and made the drive from Kenosha. I waited 3 hours to be seen, however I was ok with that as I had been told this was the case. I have to tell you that my dog once seen was treated very nicely and thoroughly. I got updated shots, heartworm test, nails cut and some pain meds for my animals back for $107.10! This type of visit would have run my at least $200 or more at my normal vet. I will continue to come back here and gladly sign in and wait my turn. Fabulous business and a great business model!

I've been taking my animals to Fox Lake Animal Clinic/Hospital for over 17 years. Yes, that means several dogs and cats. Dr Bo has handpicked the best staff in the world, and the fact that they don't do appointments is a non-issue. How ticked off are you when you HAVE an appointment and have to sit for an hour? I've learned to plan our vet visits, and even in emergencies, if you are a regular patient, there are always rules to bend. BE REASONABLE. My last two dogs died of strange and complicated diseases, and Dr Bo and Dr Marie worked together to diagnose and help treat them both, while at the same time, being careful not to bankrupt me. The first dog had to be euthanized, and Dr Bo did it himself and stayed with me the entire time. So compassionate. My last dog died at home, but we weren't sure just what killed her (I didn't have the money or the heart to open her up just to see what it was). They were able to tell me after death, that she'd died of stomach cancer. Again, Dr Bo talked to me and answered all my questions, assuring me that we had given her the best care, even telling me what would have to have been done, still with the result of death. The entire staff is caring, if a little harried at times, but if you are polite, they are polite. My only gripe is that so many of the customers are so rude -- you can't tell me this is the only vet office in the world where you have to wait. And despite the tight parking area, I've always had a place to park. There is a nice area adjoining the parking lot to take the dog out and walk around, relieve himself. Unfortunately, too many idiot owners think someone else needs to clean up after their pets. Get real, people! As someone else said, if the prices went up, Fox Lake Animal Hospital is still a bargain! Did it ever occur to you complainers that you're such a pain in the butt, the price went up just for you???

I found this place because my lab had a cut on his ear from a raccoon fight. My vet wanted $400 to stitch it up. I tried waiting for it to heal on it's own but to no avail. A friend insisted that I take him to Fox Lake and said it would be much less. She was right. For under $100 they took care of him that day! I don't always like to wait but if I tell them I need to leave at certain time, they were very accommodating and got me out in record time last visit.

I've been going to Fox Lake Animal Clinic for over 10 years now. Dr. Bo is great, and the shibas especially love Dr. Marie, and the other vets that have treated my dogs have also been first rate. Yes, sometimes you have to wait a while, but I go there because they're good vets and they care, it's a bonus that they are also very reasonable.

My dog was VERY FORTUNATE to have been seen by Dr. Rudowski. We had taken him to several vets in the city and they were not only twice the money, but they were willing to clean the dog's teeth while he was under general having his surgery. Had I gone with on of these vets my dog quite likely would be dead now. Dr. R. would not do the teeth at the same time as opening the peritoneal cavity for urinary tract surgery, as the bacteria disturbed by the dental work can easily and quickly travel through the body and an incurable infection can result. So Dr. R. SAVED US $, over a thousand dollars on the operation but MORE IMPORTANTLY did not expose my dog to a life-threatening situation.
I am really surprised to read the complaint of someone who took their dog to this hospital for ten years and now gives them a ZERO for a rating. Were you asleep for the ten years, did they give you adequate enough service? You continued to use their services. It just amazes me.

I liked reading all these reviews. Yes, I don't like to wait hours to see the vet but nobody has ever been rude. There is a vet tho, he has an accent and talks very quietly, so you have to perk your ears like your pet. The other young man is good. But I don't remember the "quiet talker's" name. He's just not ...feeling. Dr. R is wonderful. I have two pugs and I don't know everybody's name but, Sophie is wonderful and the groomer loves my pugs. They are getting old now guys, one is 13 and the other boy is 11. I'm sorry some people had a bad day over there. I've been rude and later regretted it myself to the people I have to deal with. Oh well.

To the person who saw vodka at the vet clinic and 'thinks' it was there because the staff must be drinking it...are you kidding? Perhaps if you had asked one of the vets or vet techs about it you would have learned the truth and then could have saved yourself from writing something so moronic.

Vodka isn't just for drinking. There are many uses for Vodka...

-Vodka is less harsh than rubbing alcohol.

-Vodka can also be used as an anecdote for antifreeze ingestion by animals. If caught very soon after ingesting the antifreeze, a veterinarian can administer a vodka IV drip and it will counteract the toxins in the antifreeze.

-Vodka, when applied directly to the skin can act as a local anesthetic for wounds and blisters.

-Treat earache. A few drops of vodka in your ear for a few minutes, then drained, will kill the bacteria causing pain in your ear.

-To ease a toothache, swishing a shot of vodka over the affected area can help disinfect, and should numb some of the pain in your gums.

-To avoid the uncomfortable reaction after coming into contact with poison ivy, immediately pour vodka on skin that has come into contact with poison ivy, and the alcohol will wash away the itchy culprit, urushiol oil. Some have said that the vodka needs to be at least 100 proof to work. Just pour vodka over an area affected with poison ivy to remove the urushiol oil from your skin.

-To remove a bandage painlessly, saturate the bandage with vodka.
The solvent dissolves the adhesive.

-Prolong the life of razors by filling a cup with vodka and letting
your safety razor blade soak in the alcohol after shaving. The vodka
disinfects the blade and prevents rusting.

-Spray vodka on vomit stains, scrub with a brush, and then blot dry.

I have taken my pets there for years. They have always been wonderful. This morning we had a crisis with our older cat and they took wonderful care of him. The cost of repairing him is going to be around $150 and they are even working out a payment plan for me. AMAZING people who love animals. I just love this place.

i feel very sadly for all the people before me that "have" had poor experiences here. Hopefully the majority to read these miserable stories to follow after mine are the type of rational who always remember theirs two sides to a story. The town of Fox Lake was a victum of my stomping grounds as a youth and chose my current residence not far from there. With that said... Most of its business circumference services mainly the majority that sees only one side and only one situation and/or its singular flaw(s).

...the more inexpensive the price, the lesser value in consumer.
sorry to stereo type... please forgive me.

on a regular day, 45 minutes to drive to fox lake hosp. Im leaving at about 7am to take my cat in. there is currently a "blizzard" in action. todays round trip just in car time will be minimum 3 hours.

i have experienced many trips to many different vets in the area. many surgical procedures, many medications, many of just about any, that could be as far as the vet goes. i continue to take my pest to fox lake hosp. i know one doctor by name dr. "R" only, however have had the experience of all the staff visible from the waiting room, many never repeating faces. when the cost is cheap it isnt due to the lack being placed in pockets, its due to the fact they have MANY volunteers revolving through to learn and just because they care inside themselves about the animals, and because the mark up on anything is just enough to cover the survival of the hospitals existence. the staff isnt there because the money is good or there trying to make the way up the pole, they like and want to do it. EVeRyBoDY has bad days and definitely all have wanted to tell the one person who pushed too hard where they can stick it.

ALL have been GREAT doctors and have never been unwilling to answer REASONABLE, REALISTIC questions you have. they might ask you for assistance involving YOUR pet but hay, we all wana help but have been tough to stay away. there volume is tremendous so understandably it may seem the doctors want to move things along, sometimes appearing to be compassionate for money, heartless for you but just slow down and look around you. be aware of the surrounding situations before you go home to out lash on a public site about the crap experience you had at a fantastic, hell the best office and service in the area. you jackasses blogging painful words are the ones who will cause the extinction of what service was meant to be when the founders created a said "service."

im taking my cat, sabbith to the hospital today to have a bottle cap attached by an epoxy craft resin, removed from her rear paw. two pads, one the front side pad and the middle of the foot pad. she is sooo pissed....lol, her ears have been straight back sense it noticed it. this cat and myself have been thru much in her life time together and when the 24 hour emergency hospital vet told me the things to look for after she advised me to come in, i made the executive decision to not. my experience with animals, good friends with knowledge in the field, and what the ER vet said led me to monitor for changes and as of 6:30am have decided she will not naturally remove this, she may be acting slightly lethargic and her coat is definitely looking and feeling different so im calling work to take a personal day to take my cat to fox lake.

as long as you are not snide, snuddy, self absorbed, or think the customer is always right, ur experience will be exactly what you let it be.

all the staff are people too. good people doing a service for a very little monitary reward, many receiving none. they do it because they want to and like it.

i will sit in the chairs until im guessing 10:30-11:00am just to be seen. this is most common an experience and i do enjoy people watching. i feel bad for the staff mostly. i will wait as long as they need and as long as none of my pets die on there watch. none gone yet in the decade or more ive been visiting them.

I have a question for the one who thinks he/she saw vodka in one of the rooms. Did you ask about? Seriously doubt it was vodka, maybe rubbing alcohol? Pretty crummy thing to say on a public site.
Anyway, Fox Lake Animal Hospital is the BEST! Dr. Rodowski (did I spell that right?) is the absolute best there is and I have always found the staff to be completely professional. I'd take my pets there if the prices were to double.

They saved my dog and didn't rip me off in the process. If you want a cold, high tech place, go elsewhere. This place reminds me of an old school, small town vet. I was treated very well by the staff, and my dogs recovery time from the surgery was FAR less than I imagined. I was at a different clinic and was quoted double the price of what Fox Lake charged me. Great staff. Knowledgable. Budget friendly. I can't say enough.

I've been going to Fox Lake Animal Hospital since the mid-1980s. Dr. Rudawski is wonderful. He isn't out there to see how fast he can spend my money, unlike most vets. He *knows* how best to treat my dogs without running lots of expensive tests and he only charges for what he does, not just for walking in the door. He also recently saved the life of a friend's dog for $50, when other vets wanted ten times as much.
The other vets in the practice however are trying see how much of my money they can spend--my dogs came in for a dental cleaning once and left with 14 teeth extracted (without my permission).
The waits *are* horrible and getting worse. Last 2 times I was there, the wait was 4 hours and yes, the staff can be rude. I think there are just more customers than they can handle and the staff is overworked. The parking is also very inadequate--often cars take up two spaces' worth and you have to park on the grass.
I always swear I'll never come back, yet I always do.

Fox Lake Animal Hospital is HORRIABLE!!!!!!! Although they have treated my dog there for years (since she was a puppy till she was 10) I will NOT be taking my new dog there. The staff is rude and condescending and that?s JUST the beginning. To make a long story short my black lab needed to go in and have some tumors removed and get spayed. When I walked into the x-ray room to assist with holding her, I looked in the technician room and to my surprise there were 3 bottle of VODKA sitting there with a glass next to them. Needless to say the x-ray was the last time I visited Fox Lake Vet. \r\nI suggest going to the Grayslake Animal Hospital next to the TOPS training facility. Or the vet I now take my 2 dogs to is the Richmond Animal Hospital. The Richmond Animal Hospital has a friendly staff and the Doctors there also believe in alternative forms of medicine (a total bonus since alternative forms tend to be cheaper!!!). They have appointment times and you never have to wait. You can tell that these doctors became a vet for the love of animals and not for the money. Unlike Fox Lake Animal Hospital, whose staff and doctors have pupils shaped like dollar signs!$!$!! \r\n

I just took my 2 month old black lab/rot mix for her booster shot. My first time going there and i left satisfied and my dog happy as hell. great vets, cheap price..what more could you ask for? I thinking about even bringing my cat there for a spaying. At most places those prices can be outrageous.
I just put my 8 yr old dog down in Schaumburgs 24 hr animal hospital and doing that costed me $500.
Go to Fox Lake...you'll get a way better price and vets who actually care about you and your pet and not the Benjamins.

I'm very sorry to hear you had a bad experience Maribel. However, people who "think" they know more about animals than the doctor are often the ones easily insulted. I have been going to Dr. Bo and Fox Lake Animal Hospital for over 15 years and they have always had the best bedside manners and have always been nothing but compassionate and caring to all my dogs, cats and birds. When one of my puppies that we had purchased came down with parvo the entire staff cared for her as if she was their own and when she died they all, Dr. Bo included, sent us a sympathy card letting us know how sorry they were. When they cut people off in mid-sentence its not to be rude its to get to other necessary information faster so a determination can be made. If I didn't completely trust and believe in this hospital I never would have let 2 of my children volunteer their so they could learn from the best vets I've EVER encountered!

I've taken all of my animals to Fox Lake Animal Hospital for almost 7 years. They've done surgery on one of my dogs and I've brought my pets there even when I lived downtown and now that I live in Westchester. They don't run a bunch of unnecessary tests that cost a lot of money. They provide a great service at about a third to half of the price of other vets that I have been to. I recommend them to everyone I know with pets.

I took my dog in for a digestive problem. He was treated by Dr. Matt, tested, given medication and a shot all for under $50.00. I will definitely return for all my pet's medical needs. It was worth the wait! Eileen

In my opinion, Dr. Rudawski is one of the best diagnostic vets out there. He seems to figure out problems that other clinics can't. He also donates a ton of time and resources to local animal rescues including exotic animals. Fox Lake Animal Hospital is also a lot less expensive than many vets I've been to. I take my personal animals as well as dogs that I foster for a local rescue group to Dr. R. They don't take appointments (except for surgery) so sometimes the wait can be long, but to me it's worth it.

I take my personal animals as well as dogs that I foster for a local rescue group to Dr. R. They don't take appointments (except for surgery) so sometimes the wait can be long, but to me it's worth it.

Pros: Reasonable rates and good care

Cons: No appointments except for surgery so wait time can be long

.

We've been clients of Fox Lake Animal Hospital for approximately 18 years now. They have seen us through many loving family cats and dogs, and have consistently provided quality and compassionate veterinary care at a reasonable cost.

When my cat of 16 years died unexpectedly following surgery last year, Dr. Rudowski and his staff stayed late so I could pick up her body that same night. I'm a bit of a drive away, so I didn't arrive until approx. 8:30pm. The staff was caring, kind, and respectful to my cat during her last moments, and to myself and my family in our time of grief.

I have also had positive vet care experiences with Dr. Kristen, Dr. Max, Dr. Dan, and another female vet whose name I can't recall.

Sometimes, the wait is long, but it's well worth it. I appreciate the vets and staff at Fox Lake; they truly put animals first.

I have been going to this animal clinic for 3 yrs. , my cat was coughing and vomiting small spots of white foam, had x ray done and I was told she has 2 air bubble on one of her lungs. All three vets at this clinic that saw her, said is something not to worry about, cats live a long life with this condition. Recently, in one week my coughing cat lost 5 lb, a lot of weight in one week. She also would not eat, not go to the litter box, just hiding under the bed. I decided to go to an other clinic, a young vet ran all the test and xray. The vet showed me a large cancer mass on her lung and said she will need to be put to sleep (was to late for anything else). I took all the films and test results and went back to Fox Lake clinic. They looked at the test results and the x ray films, kept my cat over night, did more test and new x rays and they told me she does NOT have any cancer.
Late that night I went to Madison Wis. at the University for animals.
Three days later my baby was gone. Fox Lake clinic is much cheaper, BUT, IF YOU LOVE YOUR PET and if your pet is sick PLEASE GO SOMEWHERE ELSE !
My baby was only 8 yr old, she is been sick for at least 2 yrs and NONE of the vets at Fox Lake clinic saw how sick she was.
The primary vet, has been practicing for 30 yr and I just did not want to believe that the young vet from the other clinic, just out of school was right. So, if you know your pet IS SICK and YOU LOVE your pet, don't go by price.
My cat, my baby was everything to me, she was my family. Every time I would notice something, I would take her to the vet. I did not neglect her.

First Time at Fox Lake and a vet for that matter. Got there bright and early to see a crowd of dogs waiting in line. At first I was a little inpatient, but once it was our turn it was all worth it. Doctor was very playfull with out puppy and took good care of her, afterwards one of the assistants came in and showed us how to clean her ears. They were very nice and professional. All in all we got a 9 week shot, heart warm pill, ear cleaning product, and phenomenal service for $24. That is hard to beat.

I have a Pitt, who at the time (July 08) was about 7months. He had loose stool since the day I got him. The Vet, in Kenosha, gave me every medicine he could think of. The bills were over $800 and the symptoms only got worse; he a lot lost weight, and could not hold down anything he ate. I did not know what to do. One night I had to take him to the doggie ER in Racine, the kept him over night and gave him fluids through an IV, and some antibiotics. They ran tests for worms, parvo, and gieardia. All negative. The bill was over $400. I took him home, and nothing changed. I took him to his Vet and they did X-rays and an ultra sound. The Vet told me that he seemed to be obstructed and there was a large amount of fluid around his intestines. The cost of this type of surgery would cost me about 4 or 5 thousand dollars. I just did not have it. I called every vet in Kenosha, Racine, and Milwaukee they all told me the same thing. Care Credit was not an option for me because I am only 21 years old and a full time student (we don?t make the best decisions). No one would help me, and without the surgery my dog would surely die, or I would have to put him to rest. I started to call around in Illinois, and I called Fox Lake Animal Hospital, I spoke with Dr. Bo, on the phone he promised me that the cost of the surgery would not be over $1,000 and that I needed to bring my dog in right away, so I did. When Dr. Bo was all done with the surgery, he said that he has never seen a case like this before and that it was far from an obstruction, he ended up removing 9 inches of intestines, and all for $1,000 unbelievable. He saved my dogs life truly. There were no charge for the follow up visits or any medication. They are the very BEST. Not in it for the money, but for the care of the animals. Now my dog is 10 months and doing great, he will never be normal as far as his digestive system, but he is over all happy, and healthy. Now I have another puppy, and the only vet we go to.

I adopted a six year old Beagle with major dental issues from Animal House Shelter in Huntley. I took the dog to his required vet exam at Animal Care Clinic in Algonquin. At the exam were told that the dog would need at least three teeth extracted and a major cleaning. The price they quoted just for the anesthesia and the radiograph was $450.00. This price did NOT include the extractions or medication. I researched on the internet and found this site and read the reviews. I called Fox Lake Animal Hospital and made an appointment. The staff was excellent and the dog received his cleaning, extraction and medications for $147.00. The do take appointments for surgeries and dentals but they do not take appointments for routine things such as vaccinations. Fox Lake is a drive (I live about forty minutes away) but it is well worth it.

I have been bringing my dog Rex here since 2000 when I moved back from San Diego. My neighbor recommended them to me and I have been bringing Rex here ever since.
They are without a doubt the best veterinary facility around. Rex has developed CHF in the last couple of years and Dr Rudowski and Dr Max have been great through the whole experience. Now it's time for Rex to sleep and making this decision is the hardest decision I can possibly ever make. This is the only place I can bring him to because their compassion and empathy for the owner is beyond my expectations of an animal hospital.
I will miss my Rexie forever but now Diego will be their new patient and I know that he will get the same care and concern that they had for Rex.
My recommendation to anyone looking for a super vet is to make the drive or the time to become part of the Fox Lake Animal Hospital family and you will never be disappointed.
Thanks to everyone there I know Rex will be in good hands when he goes to heaven.

I got a quote for my dog for over $4000 to fix his leg bc it was broken. not to mention the first visit was over $400 bc it was an emergency clinic. My cousin recommended taking the drive from Carol Stream to Fox Lake and it was worth it. Dr. Rudowski is amazing, He told me my dogs leg should heal with a cast just fine. and 6 weeks later, his leg is healing, his cast came off and now hes left in a splint. 2 more weeks and he will go back and get the splint off and be ok... My dog LOVES the staff there (not the other dogs however) Well worth the waits on my Saturday mornings... There are so many employees there trying so hard and so fast to make sure everyone is happy and all dogs get the proper treatment they need, with out spending an arm and a leg.... 6 weeks ago, I thought I was going to have to put my dog down because I couldnt afford surgery on his leg. It tore my life apart. Now 6 weeks later, hes improved 110% and cant wait until the day he will be able to walk again without his cast.. Thank you so much!!!

Well worth the wait!! Decent prices!!! Excellent Doctors!!! I always feel I'm doing the very best for my cats by taking them to the Fox Lake animal hosp. Sometimes I wish I could go their for my own health care needs.

I have frequented this establishment for over a decade now. I have 5 pets: 2 cats and 3 dogs. One is very old and has many health issues. I have been great advice for taking care of this old fellow, along with the usual care/shots for my other pets. Dr. "R" and Dr. Dan are my top choices for vets there...although I have never a bad experience with any of the vets or staff there.
My advice to anyone going there is to bring a book, magazine, bills to pay or something else to pass the time while visiting here. Your wait may be short or pretty long...depending on number of clients signed in for that day. Time can be passed by talking to other patrons of this place ...the majority of people and their animals are very friendly!
If you live nearby...you would be wise to pop in and check the sign in list...this will help you decide whether you want to stay an wait for an appointment. The prices are very affordable, the service is great (except the wait...after all...its a lst come first serve place) Surgeries are scheduled however, and extreme emergencies are seen immediately. I highly recommend this place...my pets love it and their workers too!

My 12 year old dog was having some vomiting issues and when I removed his collar I found a lump on his throat. When I went to his local vet in the city. they wanted to do a biopsy send it out and wait for results. They also suggested several other tests to "rule out" this or that. A friend in Antioch suggested I take his to Fox Lake quite a trek from my home in Lakeview. However, I am glad I did. Dr. R examined my dog and said we could do a biopsy however, because the mass was affecting his health, if it were his dog he would "take it out and send it in for testing." I really appreciate that he empathized with my problem and gave a recommendation from the heart instead of the wallet.After the exam I was able to schedule surgery for the following day and asking the technician what my bill was she replied that the consult before surgery would be n/c and remarked in humor that I obviously lived in the city.I have taken my elderly dog back a few times since and although there is a wait due to the first come, first serve business, I have found most of the others waiting to be very pleasant.

My local vet quoted me $1200 for the surgery my dog needed. I was recommended to check out Fox Lake Animal Hospital because of their low prices. The vet in town charged me $45 for the presurgery consultation, where Fox Lake charged me $0. I was pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness of the rooms, the friendliness of the staff and the patience of the doctors. I was especially impressed with the surgery scheduling gal who gave me all the time I needed to ask questions. My dog underwent two mammary gland removals, one lumpectomy and spaying for $410.00. Even though it is first come first serve, the wait was not bad. My only disappointment was when I called the hospital after my dogs surgery and the next morning after the surgery to check on her and they referred to my dog by the surgery that was done, rather than her name. I live 40 miles away, but feel it was worth it. The bottom line: They did not require preop lab testing which was $350 at my vet, They did not insist on pathology as my local vet did which was $200. I could if I wanted, but because my dog is 9 1/2, I felt no matter what the pathology results, I would not do further treatement. My choice and they concurred.

I live in Chicago, so Fox Lake Animal Hospital is a hike. However, if one of my dogs has a health issue beyond just the typical everyday stuff, I take them there. Dr. Rudowski and Dr. Max are no-nonsense country vets that have helped heal my dogs of various injuries and illnesses that several vets in the city either couldn't diagnose properly or would have charged triple for treating. It's a first come, first serve hospital with no appointments, so be sure to call ahead for hours before you head out there. Well worth the trip!

I have been taking my dogs to Fox Lake Animal for several years now after having terrible experiences with other Vets. Dr Rudawski and Dr Groberg are remarkable doctors and surgeions and well worth the sometimes very long wait to see (they don't make appointments...first come, first served) I have nothing but praise for them and their support staff. I did have problems with other Vets working here and always request either of them, even if I have to wait longer.

My dog needed surgery and everyone I called quoted over $2000.00 for the surgery, My friend recommended Fox Lake Animal Hospital they quoted me $500.00. I took her there for the surgery and no one could of done a better job for more money. Six months later she needed the same surgery on the other leg which of course they performed and she is walking like nothing ever happened. They are very busy therefore you might have to spend some time in the waiting room, however it is worth it. I do not know what I would of done as the two surgeries were over $4000.00 and they charged me a little over $1000.00 as I did not have the extra $3000.00
Thanks Fox Lake
