We strive to provide modern veterinary medicine with traditional sensibilities. This means we have developed a contemporary clinic to offer the best care available for your pet, yet we don’t subscribe to the practice of upselling our services. Our goal is, to be honest and fair and to never guilt you into doing anything. We offer a friendly, compassionate, and frank approach to caring for your family pet, all in a judgment-free environment.

Thank You for Making Us a Top-Rated Veterinarian in Chicago!
Dr. LaFave is a wonderful vet! The staff and techs are all very friendly, welcoming, and compassionate. She didn’t push us to do any unnecessary diagnostics. She was able to answer all of our questions, gave us all the information we needed about our pet’s health, and additional information was also emailed to us. Highly recommend this office!
The staff and Dr. LaFave have been so wonderful!! They’re welcoming of bully breeds, very compassionate and Dr. LaFave is always willing to take the time to answer my questions. I never feel rushed and any additional questions I may have later on always get answered in a timely manner. I love the integrative approach to medicine to give my fur baby the best care possible. You can tell they really care about their patients and owners!
What a great experience! I brought my cat in for a cough, they were very transparent about the cost of each service before proceeding with anything. I really appreciated the breakdown in pricing, and the no-pressure attitude, as well as the kind guidance on what would be most effective in diagnosing my cat’s condition. Service was prompt, everyone was super nice, the office is very clean, and Django is a happy kitty 🙂 Thanks Dr. LaFave!
