Best – I am writing to let you know how GREAT Portage Park is. Pam, who has been there for over 20+ years is great and knows everyone. In fact everyone there is wonderful. My owners have brought me here since I was a kitten. They are always kind and gentle. A few weeks ago, they discovered I had cancer and my chances were very slim that I would survive surgery. I was 14 years old (and 90+ in human years). They did some tests and a few procedures that I did not care for, but they were to help diagnosis me. They found out that I had cancer and that my chances were slim that I would survive surgery. They left it up to my owners to make the decision. So, even though I was in pain, I waited until I knew my parents were ready. It didn't take they too long to know that I wasn't getting any better and that it was time. Today, they took such good care of them, helping them through the process of letting me go. They held me for as long as they wanted to, and they talked to me while I drifted off to sleep. I could see them from Heaven that they were really sad that I was not there anymore, but also they were glad that I was no longer in pain. Portage Park physicians, Dr. Olson, was mine, and her caring and thoughtful staff, made the process from earth to Heaven peaceful. So since this is my first day in Heaven, I need to explore, My owners parents were they to greet me and to show me around, and my owner's first cat, muffin, was also there. Portage Park is the cat's meow.
received a dead kitten back – If you love your pet DO NOT TAKE your pet here. Healthy kitten taken here for shoots and to be spaded... a couple hours later received a call that she is dead. Yes dead, NO compassion at all. Wanted an explanation and finally was told.. oh weak heart, like it was nothing. This kitten lived in our house and played outside all day. The most active, hyper kitten we have ever seen. I was handed her in a box with the women saying"here's your kitty" We are taking her to have a necropsy (autopsy for cats) and the receptionist was crying with me and apologizing... no sympathy from the place that ended her life.
MONEY MONEY MONEY – I have been bringing my pets to this vet my entire life. Through out the years I have gradually started to look for another vet. Walking into this place is worse then walking into a car dealership. I feel like all they want is your money. And they'll will do anything and be so shallow to tell you anything to get it. I am always pressured to do something more or buy something more every single time I walk through the door, even if there is nothing wrong with my animals. They don't care here.
If you Love your Pet, You will take it to Potage Park Animal Hospital – I have been going to Portage Park Animal Hospital for over 12 years and I don't think I would ever go anywhere else. My wonderful friend Tyler who passed away a few weeks ago went to Portage Park for 12 years and I feel he was wonderfully taken care of. Are they the least expensive vet in Chicago, no, but as mother always says "many times you get what you pay for" I really feel in this case it is very true and a good value for the great care you recieve. The vets, assistants, and techs you can tell just really love animals and they are organized and professional. I have lived in many areas of the City from Rogers Park to the Gold Coast to Old Edgebrook and It doesn't matter how far I have to travel to take by best friend there. I recently abopted a new friend (Siberian Husky in the picture to left) and I am very confident in the care and looking forward to taking him to Portage Park Animal Hospital.
