VCA Heritage Animal Hospital

Our Team Overview

Our doctors and technicians regularly attend continuing education seminars in order to always remain on the cutting edge of veterinary medicine. In fact, we accumulate more continuing education credits than is required for state licensing! We are fortunate to have five certified technicians on staff, which is complemented by a well-trained support staff of receptionists and veterinary assistants. Certified technicians have completed two years of technical training at a licensed school and have then passed a state-sponsored board examination. Given our close proximity to the University of Illinois Veterinary College and Parkland Community College, many of our support staff are currently attending veterinary or technician school.

Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.
