Description

Downers Grove Animal Hospital & Bird Clinic is a full service animal hospital dedicated to nurturing the bond between you and your canine, feline, avian or exotic family member. We strive to not only care for your pet when (s)he is sick, but also to help you to learn how to keep your pet happy and healthy with preventative health care. In addition to standard medical, grooming, surgical, and dental veterinary care, we also offer boarding services for dogs, cats, and birds/exotics; as well as grooming services and dog training on-site. Our facility is currently owned and operated by Dr. Robert Merkin and his sons, Dr. Graham Merkin and Dr. Max Merkin.

Our family has been privileged to serve the Western Suburbs (including Clarendon Hills, Downers Grove, Hinsdale, Lisle, Lombard, Oak Brook, Western Springs, Westmont, Willowbrook, and Woodridge) for over 60 years. It is the mission of each veterinarian at Downers Grove Animal Hospital & Bird Clinic to provide the best veterinary care to our patients and the highest attainable level of service to their owners in a friendly, informal environment. Our family would be honored to help you to care for your four-legged family member.
