IS YOUR DOG SUFFERING FROM ARTHRITIS? DOES HE/SHE HAVE A HARD TIME GOING UP OR DOWN STAIRS? IS HE/SHE RELUCTANT TO PLAY BALL OR GO ON WALKS? If you answered yes to any of these questions please inquire about a clinical trial for a new Osteoarthritis drug that we are participating in or go online to www.DogOA.com for more information.
Preiser Animal Hospital works closely with the community to help local animal shelters. In 2002, Dr. Herbert Preiser founded Heartland Animal Shelter which is located in the building next door to the clinic. The shelter now finds homes for over 1000 animals per year and has been gaining recognition of one of the top animal shelters in the Chicago area. Continuing her father's work, Dr. Kristine Preiser volunteers her time as the shelter veterinarian to perform all the spays and neuters for the shelter, as well as oversees all medical care for the animals while they are waiting to find their forever homes.

Ask us about our Class IV Laser!!!
In December 2011 we added a Class IV Therapy Laser to our arsenal of tools to treat:
- Wound Healing
- Intervertebral Disc Disease
- Skin Infections/Hot spots
- Degenerative Joint Disease
- Lick Granulomas
- Periodontal Disease/Gingivitis
The therapy laser can help ease the pain of arthritis without the use of medication or surgery. It also speeds healing following surgery or an injury. This FDA-approved laser uses deep-penetrating light waves to stimulate both the release of endorphines to ease pain and increase circulation to reduce inflammation and expedite healing. We can finally improve your pet's quality of life without the use of oral medications and the unwanted side effects that those bring. We use it with nearly every surgery patient that comes thru our door to ensure that they remain as comfortable as possible during their recovery. If you are interested in learning more about this cutting-edge tool, please call to speak with one of our staff members.
"Preiser Animal Hospital will do our absolute best to welcome you to a friendly atmosphere, while treating you, your animals, and one another with the utmost compassion, respect and care. We strive to provide our patients quality and progressive medicine during illness and in health. Our mission is to provide a service of preventative and natural wellness for your animal from the very young to the senior stages of life...with a smile."
We accept walk-ins until 30 minutes prior to closing.
My lab Parker was my first "Preiser Pet"; he saw Dr. Herbert Preiser and had great care by a caring doctor; now Brewster, my Great Pyrenees visits Dr. Kristine Preiser and the great staff. Since Brewster has some chronic health problems, he's been a frequent visitor. Not only has he gotten great care, but the staff has always come up with new treatment options, and healthy ideas--I really prefer natural health for me, and have found the treatments at Preiser, whether traditional or alternative, have been just the right treatment for Brewster. I would highly recommend the laser treatment for chronic ear infections! Brewster has an inflamed canal that makes the healing process tough, and the laser treatments from Jaimie had a huge effection on his infection and of course his pain level.
