Today at Elam animal hospital had to be one of the worse days of my life to make a long story short the new staff there is rude and very judgmental not only to me but my husband too I address this to the owner ms Elam she was nice and I have been going there for 3 yrs on and off I sure do miss the staff who are mostly gone now I do hope that they clean out some of the staff in the front desk and get more kinder workers unfortuntaley I will not be returning I guess like they say good people are hard to fineđŸ€Ș😞

I have been dealing with Elam for about 7 or 8 years. They do a great job with my 18.5-year-old cat, especially Guin. She handles Marvy (semi-feral, think of the old movie "Kill, Pussycat, Kill!" and that's pretty much Marvy) really well and does a great job of taking care of her, as do the other folks there who work on Marvy from time to time. You wouldn't believe a cat this old could still go full Tasmanian Devil on someone, but she can, so I also admire their bravery!

I cannot say enough good things about the courtesy and professionalism my cat Fred and I have received at Elam. From the Vets to the Techs to Support Staff this is an efficient, knowledgeable and sympathetic clinic. They've been thoughtful and helpful to us beyond words. I recommend Elam very highly!

My wife and I have been very p...

My wife and I have been very pleased with our experiences with Dr. Hassinger and Elam Animal Hosp. Our first visit was due to a mass we had found inside our Lab, "Tag"s" mouth. Dr. Hassinger examined Tag thoroughly and discussed possible prognoses, treatment options, risks & bebefits without swaying us in any direction. Her compassion and love for animals are apparent and wonderful but I feel her patient education skills make her stand out.

Need to find Dr. Emily Hoppmann

I know that I am still on the internet as working for Elam, but I left over two years ago. Dr. Hoppmann is now the owner of Elgin Veterinary Hospital where she continues to see exotics and small animals. The website is www.elginvethospital if you would like more information. The best part of her owning the clinic is now she can have a clinic that practices the best quality of medicine possible and can ensure that every client/patient is treated like family. She also has a well-trained staff and has been able to lower prices to what she finds is fair and actually allows people to afford to provide quality care for their pets. The clinic is run like a family and that is how you and your pet would be treated. .

Love Elam, Dr Sine is Dr DoLittle herself..

I brought my German Shepherd for the first time into Dr Sines office and she was so amazing with him. He tried to bite her and the staff. But she was so good and patient with him. I have been coming back ever since and now he loves her..The Clinic is clean and the staff are all very nice. I would recomend this clinic to anyone who really wants great care for their pets....They get Four stars in my book... Thanks Elam

Very caring and good people

Dr. Sine is a very cheerful, kind, and caring Vet.
My dog loved her.
The staff is also great.
You can tell they know what they are doing and that they care about your pet as much as you do.
Great location too.
What more could you ask?

Elam is GREAT!

They help my dog after it's hip was dislocated and he has recovered. I would recommend them to anyone if asked for a Veterinary referral.

poor care

this is going to be my 3rd visit to the vet here and they cant seem to find the problem with my kitten has she nears death the kitten still has not been taken care of of i hope this will stir things up i ve been going there for 20 yrs plus and never had such poor care for my pets until now



Good Service

Recently my cat was attacked and injured by a stray cat. I called and took her in to this vet and we received immediate service. They looked her over, gave me an antibiotic for her, and instructions on what to do to keep her well. I paid much less than I expected (including the antibiotic)! I also buy my flea medication from them since they are just as cheap as most online services - but without the shipping charges. I will take all of my pets here if & when they need medical care.
