We are excited to announce that as of Tuesday, 6/1/21, we will be inviting our clients back into the clinic for appointments! Please take a look at the following guidelines before your appointment:

-We will allow clients with appointments to come into the clinic, please limit one person per appointment
-We will continue to provide curbside care for those needing to drop off their pet, pick up food/prescriptions, or who prefer curbside appointments
-Please continue to use Televet Flow or give us a call to let us know you have arrived at the clinic
-We will not require masks for those who have been vaccinated

We have learned much over the past year, and we want to express the following thoughts as we embark on yet another adaptation of how we provide our services:

First, we are grateful for your continued trust following a challenging year! We aim to continue providing plenty of time for thorough communication about your pets’ needs.

We learned over the past year that on average our patients experience less stress with less noise and activity. As such, only clients with appointments will be allowed in the clinic at any given time.

We are happy to continue to provide curbside care to all clients in need of dropping their pet off, picking prescriptions or food up, or if they simply liked curbside care over the last year.

We encourage all of our clients to utilize our phone system and texting system to help make visits more efficient and comfortable. While we do have a doorbell on the front of the clinic that will get our attention, the best way for you to let us know you have arrived is to either call or text us!

Finally, we encourage as few family members as possible to join your pets for their appointments. Again, your pets experience less stress when noise and activity is at a minimum!

We look forward to continuing to serve you and your pets. We thank you for your ongoing trust, and encourage you to call/email/text with any questions you have. Thank you!


Expert veterinary care for your four-legged family members.

At Pleasant Paws Veterinary Care, we know pets are like family.

Our goal is to exceed your expectations by providing the highest quality veterinary care with genuine compassion in a safe and comfortable environment. The special bonds we have with our own pets are our motivation for continuous improvement and providing an exceptional educational experience for you at every visit. From annual wellness care to medical or surgical care, we are here to serve you.


We offer full-service dog and cat grooming on Tuesday thru Saturday. Our experienced groomer is happy to give your pet a breed standard cut or a stylish trim to your specifications. We also offer sedation-assisted grooming for those pets who need a trim but get too stressed out for routine grooming. Need a quick nail trim or clean-up bath? Give us a call. We’re happy to help!

Hospice Care

Euthanasia has always been a part of veterinary practice, but we’ve only recently started talking about the time in between a terminal diagnosis and the death of the pet. Hospice care is a relatively new service in the veterinary industry. People often feel rushed into making a final decision at the time of diagnosis. We can develop a manageable treatment plan for many pets to control pain and discomfort, providing a quality, happy life prior to death occurring naturally or choosing euthanasia. Whether that happy life lasts for days, weeks, or months, we will make a plan that fits your wishes and your pet’s best interests.

Hospice care aims to meet the physical and mental needs of the terminally ill or geriatric pet. It begins the moment the pet’s family has decided not to pursue aggressive, curative therapies and functions on the principle that death is a part of life. Terminal illnesses and the dying process can be experienced with dignity, as an animal rests at home with its loving family. Learn more about our hospice care here.

Alternative Therapies

We offer a wide variety of alternative therapies to help your pet feel their best. Rehabilitation and therapy are a major focus of ours, and we have worked with an array of conditions, including but not limited to chronic arthritis, orthopedic injury, and post-operative healing.

Stem Cell Therapy

This new and emerging treatment has the power to heal a variety of problems by using the body’s own regenerative properties. We would love to discuss this new treatment with you! ​​For more information, stories, and FAQs, click here.

House Calls

Due to staffing limitations, house calls are not currently available.

Not every dog enjoys car rides, and many cats dread coming to the vet. Why not bring the vet to them? Every Tuesday thru Friday, we are available for house calls by appointment, between the hours of 10 AM and 6 PM. We are happy to do yearly exams, vaccines, sick pet exams, and routine blood-work, all from the comfort of your home. An additional travel charge does apply, based on mileage from the clinic; we are happy to give you an estimate prior to your visit if you are interested.

Wellness Care

What is the most important part of your pet’s yearly check-up? Vaccines? Heartworm testing? Actually, it’s a nose-to-toes annual exam! Preventative care exams help detect early signs of disease or changes due to aging. These changes can often be slowed or reversed with diet changes or nutritional supplements if detected early. When combined with wellness blood screens, preventative care helps us detect those subtle changes that our pets can’t tell us about.

Massage Therapy

Canine massage therapy has a long list of health benefits for dogs of all ages. From rapidly growing puppies, athletic young adults to arthritic grey-muzzled seniors, all can benefit from the improved circulation and pain relief provided by massage.

Our multi-talented groomer, Melissa, attended the Chicago School of Canine Massage to bring a top-notch service to the pampered pets at Pleasant Paws. She has training in canine massage and low-stress handling to train dogs to enjoy their massage experience.

Call now to book your dog’s one-hour session in-clinic on Mondays and via house calls on Wednesday afternoons!
