Providing All of Your Veterinary Needs

in Darien, Downers Grove, Westmont and surrounding areas.


Their health means the world to us, because they mean the world to you

Caring for the pets of Burr Ridge, Darien, Downers Grove, Westmont and surrounding areas is more than a job for us—it's been our mission and our passion since 1975. That means we have a lot of experience customizing care to meet a pet's very specific needs, and just as much experience making pets feel comfortable and safe. You and your pet will never be just another appointment to us, because we consider getting to know you both well as an essential part of providing excellent care and service.

Your pet is unique.
So is our approach to veterinary care.

We understand that your pet is an individual. Their age, breed, and environment all help determine the best way to give them as many happy, healthy years with you as possible. Comprehensive services like the ones we provide are part of the equation, but so is the ability to make veterinary visits as stress-free as possible so your pet can be fully examined and treated. It's why we have established Fear Free protocols at our clinic and have Fear Free Certified Professionals on staff. We've also been accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association for over 25 years, so whether it's a puppy visiting for first shots, a feathered companion in for treatment, or a senior friend needing help for pain, the services we provide meet the highest standards.


We’re passionate about pets

At Burr Ridge Veterinary Clinic, our most valuable asset isn’t some large piece of diagnostic equipment or a computer network—it’s our people. They’re here because they strive for excellence and truly care about the pets and people they serve. That’s not just something we say, it’s something we live, every day. While we believe and invest in the power of the latest veterinary technology, we never forget that compassion and experience are just as important when it comes to assuring you and your pet that you’re in capable, caring hands.

Many thanks to everyone at Burr Ridge Veterinary Clinic for the 12 years of love and care that you gave to our beloved Tucker! Thank you Dr. Angele, for following up with us on his final day. You’re the best!

Fantastic and caring place. Dr. Rooney has been my vet for both of my dogs for many years. He is knowledgeable, caring and spends his time with you. Staff is excellent.

- Barb P.

Been using them for the care of my dogs for 25 years. Dr. Palmer is the best.

- Mark E.

We now have two dogs that go to BRVC. One has chronic allergies/ear infections until we came to this clinic they were never controlled. We still have flare ups but much relieved symptoms. The staff truly cares about their patients and their families.

- Nancy S.

Dr. Sexton is amazing. She is so kind and thoughtful. She is always very thorough with Sarabi and takes excellent care of her and Sarafina. I travel from Chicago to see her as I followed her from West Loop Vet. I don’t trust anyone else with them.

- Marlo S.

You couldn’t ask for more caring doctors and staff. They treat you as if you are family. Wouldn’t take my fur babies anywhere else!

- Alice K.

Long story short, my dog cut his paws open in our house as he got scared and knocked all of our wine and beverage glasses off our little wine bar. I called as soon as I found him after work and they got him right in. Dr. Johnson was great and we were in and out! Thanks for taking such great care of Jake!

- Kristin J.

Love Love, Love this place! Everyone there is friendly on the phone and in person, you can tell every single employee LOVES animals! We see Dr. Rooney but I was easily able to get in for last minute appointments with another vet twice when my pooch injured himself. The place is clean, loving and professional!

I’ve been taking my girls to Burr Ridge since the 1980’s, would never go anywhere else.

I can’t say enough about the compassion and caring that all the staff and doctors have given the animals that walk in the door on a daily basis……….I know each and every one of the doctors and know that my pet is in very good hands when they come into Burr Ridge Veterinary Clinic. All of you love the animals and do over and above to take care of those furred and feathered.
