My daughter brought her cat into this clinic on Jan. 31, 2012 as recommended by her vet for after hours care. The cat had kidney failure and although her beloved cat couldn't be saved they did all that was possible. They were extremely compassionate at all times and allowed my daughter to take as much time as she needed to make decisions and say goodbye. They helped with taking photos and paw prints. I would highly recomend them based on the experience we had at their clinic. Thank you Dr. Keeley Mc. Neal and staff for being so warm hearted and kind and doing all that was possible to save my daughters beloved cat.

Brought my dog in that had got into the garbage and ate a bunch of junk. He would not stop vomiting and I called the emergency hospital and they told me to bring him in. The staff there was super cool, very understanding and great with my dog. Well worth the money and the drive. Much better than the other emergency vet near there.
and for all these people complaining about how this place is out for the money, how do you think businesses stay open? By giving things away for free? Having a pet is a luxury and if you cant pay for them you shouldn't have one. There is also pet insurance you can buy for emergency situations.

We had taken our cat there who appeared to have had a stroke, so we had to put him down . We were there with our 6 and 3 year old daughters who were devistated as it was that our cat was in so much pain and then finding out it was the last time they would see him. After everything was said and done, our lucky-boy now deceased, ot was time to get our bill and check out. The only option was pay $293 right now, or call someone to pay for you. If not take your dead cat and we are sending you to collections. I begged and pleaded for a payment plan or to be billed. They said no, take your cat and now im going to collections!! She said "you dont go to the grocery store without money now do you"......life is full of surprises and not everyone is prepared financially for stuff like this. To put a price tag on a life like that is sickening to me. Its not like they wouldnt get their money...have some compassion. Money is the last thing on your mind when tragedy strikes. The least they could do was let you mourn your loss and bill you. These people are ignorant and cold. Do not go there or insist on them changing their policy!!!!

They advertise themselves as a small animal and exotic vet, but they don't know much about their care. They don't have a small animal vet always on hand so why even go there?

My visit there was a waste of time and money...ALOT of money! Go elsewhere for your small pet emergencies as they are clueless!

If you are a reputable, knowledgeable breeder, don't go here! I went to this clinic with an emergency c-section for my Himalayan girl. I did not wait too long -- it was obvious she was not going to be able to deliver the kitten stuck in the birth canal. She was not in distress, just uterine inertia.

After the vet delivered the two kittens by section she reported that they were still working on them but it did not look good. I was stunned. I expected to lose the the one that had been stuck, but the other one should have been fine. She was breathing, but she did not want to take breaths on her own. I asked the vet if she had used Dopram yet --a well-known respiratory stimulant used on newborns that are having trouble getting a regular respiratory pattern. She told me that Dopram is outdated and no reputable vet uses it anymore. I contacted several vets and breeders, including Dr. Karen Thomas on the Feline Fanciers Health List --and they all use Dopram in situations like this. The kitten I lost was a top show girl sired by my International Winner, and this was my girl's last litter; I had her spayed along with the section. I was devastated not only by losing the kitten, but at her very unemotional and rather derisive comments to me. It was clear she did not like breeders, even highly reputable ones (why else would I be at an ER on a Sunday afternoon 2 hours into the cat's delivery when I'm very experienced?). I have found no evidence anywhere that Dopram is ineffective and not used anymore in situations like this one, quite the contrary. Her poor judgment and lack of knowledge cost me a very important kitten, and her manner totally lacked compassion. On the other hand, I cannot say enough good things about everyone else at this clinic. They were helpful, kind, and compassionate. While I can only speak to this one experience with this one particular doctor, I think they seriously need to find more knowledgeable doctors. Mistakes like this should not happen. Also, they misquoted me a price over the phone. The bill was double what I was quoted, and there were no complications. My regular vet charges me $18 for Clavamox; they charged $40 - same product, same packaging. How do they justify that???

I have to say that this animal hospital saved both of my dogs in the last year. My puppy came down with a rare form of meningitis and they identified the problem quickly and treated him with antibiotics just in time to save him. My other dog suffered extreme heat stroke after only being outside for 5 minutes. She is an old dog, but a great dog. Her temperature climbed to 107.5 and they worked really hard to get it down quickly and helped offset any brain damage, kidney and liver failure. I owe them so much for working so hard to save my babies. Thank you so much.

They performed the wrong surgery on my dog and killed him.They lied and told me he was fine and they cured him and pushed him out the door almost dead with no meds or after care,six hrs after surgery. I had to rush him to another animal hosp who told me he was in critical condition because of the wrong surgery.(he was not in critical cond when I brought him to mokena, just sick). He spent five days in the ICU and died.I have contacted mokena several times to discuss what happened and the owner Gary will not get back to me.In short they took my $2500, Severly injured my dog, gave him back in critical cond, lied about what they did and killed my best friend with no remorse or explanation.I am actually hiring an attorney and sueing for medical malpractice.STAY AWAY IF YOU LOVE YOUR PETS! Go to the arboretum view in downers grove, they are wonderful, I have also heard good things about VCA aroma park. This place should be shut down

Cons: they killed my dog

very long story but in short they did the wrong surgery on my dog and gave him back to me almost dead. I had to rush him to another animal hospital n Downers grove, who spent five days trying to save his life, but he died.i have contacted them several times and they will not even speak to me because they know they killed my dog.Also after surgery my dog was given no fluids or meds, when I came to pick him up SIX HRS after surgery they lied and told me he was fine and they cured him.They pushed me out the door with no meds or after care instructions. I went straight to my reg vet where I found out they performed an uneccasary surgery and my dog was in critical condition. I rushed him to the aboretum view hosp where they gave him two blood infusions to try to save him and he was admitted into ICU for five days all because of what mokena did to him.He died and they could care less that they caused all this pain and suffering. they got there $2500.00 dollars thats all they care about. I spent another five grand trying to save him, my poor dog.I would NEVER go near this place again!I loved my dog and they killed him and could care less.

I had to telephone Mokena Emergency Care after my dog that had surgery from my vet decided to try to remove her own stitches. Her stitches were only in for four days. I was just at my vet earlier in the day where they had to remove her soft cast due to it falling down. After we came home, she tried to remove her own stitches. The wound was bleeding, and it could not be bandaged because she would remove the bandage. The incision was 12" long, I was very concerned that she would re-open the entire wound. Mokena Emergency, took wonderful care of her, fitted her with a protective collar and administered the proper dosage of meds to keep her calm during her recovery. I can't thank them enough for the kindness they showed not only my dog, but me as well. They were very understanding and I would highly recommend them for any pet owner in need.

Although I am SURE you are a WONDERFUL breeder, let me guess, you gave prob gave Oxytocin yourself, without consulting a vet, that can actually CAUSE uterine inertia, and have a negitive impact on the welfare of the fetus. Then you brought your queen in, and because things did not go well, you decide to blame the hospital. And honestly, if she is such a great cat, and prob made you alot of money pushing out kittens, the money paid for her care should not even be an issue. I breed animals too, and have had 2 c-sections done at this facility, never had any issues and was always treated warmly.

I would never recommend this place. My dog was dehydrated and I had to leave him there overnight. The Vet Tech was rude and cold. When I had called to find out how he was doing, and asked to speak to the vet she would not let me. She showed no compassion for animals when I was there and even less when I was on the phone with her. Her name is Dawn and she should not be working with people and their beloved pets. She would not even let me speak with the vet and gave me inconsistent information. Go to the ER in Crestwood.

Two years ago, I accidentally kicked my cat, and she was bleeding from her nose. I started freaking out and bawling so my brother drove us to this hospital. It was Thanksgiving, and it was the only place open. They saved the day and calmed me down. The only bad part was the long wait, but again it was the only place open. Definitely recommend. Very courteous staff

My cat was experiencing some bloating and did not act as herself. I decided to bring her in to see someone as I thought she was having problems moving her bowels. After a battery of tests, we found out that she had a mass in her abdomen. She ended up dying, but I'm glad that I brought her to the animal emergency of Mokena because I was able to assist her and know what the true problem was.
