Caring for pets... and their people, too.

VCA Franklin Park Animal Hospital is a full-service hospital, offering advanced surgery, dental care (complete with dental radiography), full diagnostic and laboratory capability, a spacious boarding facility, and cat and dog grooming. We are one of the few facilities in the area that sees exotics and avians. We are open seven days a week and, for your convenience, are a walk-in hospital, although surgery and grooming are by appointment. Our veterinarians are committed to your pet's health and our team of professionals are well trained in all aspects of veterinary medicine.

New to VCA?

In addition to the traditional services you'd expect from a veterinary hospital, we offer pets and pet parents a broad selection of  veterinary care. For example, we provide services and treatments for exotic pets, including  reptiles, pocket pets and birds. Our medical director received additional surgical training and can perform many advanced procedures.  We also provide onsite grooming and boarding, so you can count on us to meet all your pet's needs.

If you aren't sure if we offer a specific service that's important to you, please ask us. If we don't already offer it, we can refer you to one of our sister animal hospitals in the area or one of our veterinary referral hospitals.

VCA Franklin Park Animal Hospital has over 13 full and part-time staff members including 4 veterinarians. We are a varied group but share a common love of animals. Our staff will do everything possible to make your visit with your furry friends exceptional. We hope every aspect of your visit from the moment you are greeted by our courteous reception staff, escorted and educated by our technical staff and attended to by our knowledgeable veterinarians creates a bond to our practice. Our goal is to be part of your pet's well-being for a lifetime.
