I will try to keep this short and sweet. but I have a few things that I NEED to say. My cat Henry's bladder started to rupture from bladder stones. I brought him to another animal hospital and spent nearly $2000 there. He was transferred to Logan Square Animal Hospital where they recommended immediate surgery on him. Dr. Konstaninov went over all the risks with me, and so we went ahead and did the surgery. He stayed an addition 5 days for recovery. The staff allowed me to visit him everyday, and they called me anytime something notable happened (when he ate, etc). With 5 days there, plus all the care he got, it was less than $1000, half the cost of the other place, and I got a second opinion on the surgery and they were both in agreement. Let me say that Henry was in very serious condition when he was brought there, and Logan Square Animal Hospital did a GREAT job with him. If he didn't have the surgery at that point in time. it probably would have meant more time, and complications, and he even could have died. I have brought 4 pets to Logan over the past 5 years or so, and they always do a good job with them. I HIGHLY recommend them...I live on the northshore, and I STILL go all the way down there/ Getting an appointment is SUPER easy. Usually just call ahead. Im sick of this place getting bad reviews. I understand not everybody has a good experience, but cats and dogs can't say whats wrong like people, and unfortunately, people don't want to spend the money to find out whats wrong..thats not a vet's fault. I've never EVER had a bad experience here, and actually, we've pulled pets from other vet's to bring to Logan because of issues. Again, I recommend this vet.

It's totally ridiculous that this place has such a low rating. If you need a fancy building with perky, and nice receptionists then this probably isn't the place for you. But if you are looking for a no frills animal hospital with good and more than fair doctors with the occasional disinterested receptionist then check out this place. I had to take in my two cats before to get checked out for worms, the Dr did not charge me an office visit he only charged me for the meds. Another time I took my possibly pregnant cat into to terminate the pregnancy and get spayed, and they refunded me the price of terminating the pregnancy because when they cut her open she was in fact not pregnant. Now would I have ever known that... no? They could have totally ripped me off and I wouldn't have had a clue. The spay went well, no hitches, and I would most definitely take my cats back there again. In this economy when even the human health care industry is suffering (my hospital has laid close to 500 people in the last year) I know that animal health care has to be taking some hits too. So the fact that they delivered quality care at a reasonable price and then some is awesome in my books. So yes, it's not pretty inside, and the office crew isn't the friendliest, but if you can get past this I would highly recommend Logan Square Animal Hospital. Also the no appointment thing works out very well, I've rarely had to wait longer than 10-15 minutes each time I go which is more than I can say for my doctor who makes have an appointment!

I took my 6 month old puppy to this vet because he was extremely sick. Dr. Basran diagnosed him with Parvo. Parvo is a deadly disease and most dogs who get this die,but Dr. Basran saved him! I go no where else. Also took my 12 year old cat with advanced kidney disease and he was saved by Dr. Van Elzen! I am very pleased with them.

We take our three cats to this vet for most checkups and problems. The exams are short, mostly because these doctors are very familiar with the problems of household pets. They do require dogs be muzzled - I think that's because a lot of people with pit bulls and other aggressive dogs use this vet service. I haven't always been pleased with their office staff, which sometimes seems to be half-asleep, but the animal care is excellent and the prices are much lower than I've found at other vets in the city.

this morning it was cold, and the snow was coming down heavy. i was on my way to get coffee when i noticed a pigeon on the ground outside of new wave coffee, laying on its back with its neck twisted just lying kind of motionless and blinking. the snow was already starting to bury it.
i wasn't sure what to do, so i went into the coffee shop to ask if they had a number for some kind of animal services that might come help put it out of its misery. they told me no one could help, animal services only comes out for cats or dogs. one of the baristas offered to come out and bludgeon it, but i passed. another one suggested logan square animal hospital right around the corner.
i am writing this review because i was deeply moved by the fact that the people in the hospital were non-judgemental and kind when i explained the situation. i know it's just a pigeon, hundreds die every day especially in the winter. but someone from the hospital bothered to put on coat, boots, hat etc and get a box and some towels, and follow me all the way around the block to save the pigeon from a slow cold burial.
it means alot that the employees of an animal hospital truly care about the suffering of a living creature, and took enough time to comfort me and deal with the situation. if i had a pet i would bring them here because i know they actually care.

I took my cat in for a suspected urinary problem and this vet said she needed an x-ray. I had no problem with that until the vet told me the cost and that he would not take time payments. If you're in any way strapped for cash and cannot come up with nearly $200 or more for anything all at once do not go to this vet.
