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

At VCA Worth Animal Hospital, we look forward to sharing in the general care for your pet, watching them grow, and providing the best medical treatment to ensure a long and happy life!

Our pet-friendly team members would love to share our knowledge of preventative medicine, dental care, weight management, parasite control, and general care. We provide medical services at the highest standards to your pet.

Local Medical Issues

It is important to focus on preventative care issues throughout the year. For example, heartworm can affect both dogs and cats and can be fatal. Keeping your pet on heartworm preventative year-round is important because mosquitoes can thrive even in cold weather.

Dental care is important for your pet's health since periodontal disease can lead to gum inflammation, tooth loss, infection, and even organ damage. Annual dental examinations and cleanings, regular brushing, and dental diets are encouraged.

True dedication and love
Kelly from Hickory Hills

I have spent the last 2 months working the Worth VCA in getting the right medications, for a very stubborn URI, that infected my 16 yr old "kitten". Pokey had a rough go with it not eating for a month and just sustaining on the water she drank. Drs. McNamee, Yu, Dill and the team at Worth, made it easier to get through it all. The past 2 months I was able to get her to eat baby food meat. Even with a small set back this past week and an injury, where Pokey was really in pain, the team helped me get my "kitten" back to a better health. Her URI is still there but not as prevalent. Today she is back on regular cat food and eating plenty, especially since she has to make up the 3 pounds she had lost through her illness. Words can't say enough how much the VCA Worth team helped me help Pokey.
