My lab Parker was my first "Preiser Pet"; he saw Dr. Herbert Preiser and had great care by a caring doctor; now Brewster, my Great Pyrenees visits Dr. Kristine Preiser and the great staff.  Since Brewster has some chronic health problems, he's been a frequent visitor.  Not only has he gotten great care, but the staff has always come up with new treatment options, and healthy ideas--I really prefer natural health for me, and have found the treatments at Preiser, whether traditional or alternative, have been just the right treatment for Brewster. 

I would highly recommend the laser treatment for chronic ear infections!  Brewster has an inflamed canal that makes the healing process tough, and the laser treatments from Jaimie had a huge effection on his infection and of course his pain level.

My husband and I have been coming to Preiser Animal Hospital for the last 4 years.  Our journey first began with Roxie, our black and tan daschund.  We first saw Dr. Becker, who always remembers us bringing Roxie into the office in her own carrying bag.  The staff was always welcoming and wonderful with our family and always answered any questions we had.  About 1 1/2 years later, we continued our journey with Roger, our fawn daschund.  Again, the staff was fantastic with him (and us)!  Then shortly after getting Roger, we noticed Roxie losing weight and not acting her normal playful self.  After numerous tests, pokes, and office visits, Dr. Preiser finally helped figure out what was going on.  From then on, we made even more visits for shots and weight checks.  The staff still continued to be respectful, patient, and very kind and loving to our sweet Roxie.  After 2 years of battling her illness, we are so sad to say Roxie has passed on and is in a better place no longer suffering.  My husband and I had to make the most awful (but the best for her) decision to put her to sleep this week.  AGAIN, the staff at Preiser Animal Hospital were so kind and caring to our Roxie and our family.  As difficult as a decision it was to make, we were comforted knowing she was in the BEST hands during this sad time.  We will continue to bring Roger to Preiser Animal Hospital and hope that we can all laugh and remember all the happy times with our little Roxie.  We want to thank all the doctors and staff members and we will continue to refer anyone we know who has animals to Preiser Animal Hospital.  THANK YOU AGAIN!!
Sarah, Dustin, and Roger H.

We have been coming to Preiser Animal Hospital for years now, and I can say first hand that if you are looking for a animal hospital to take care of your pet, this is the best you can get. The entire staff is warm and friendly, almost like a family experience.

Dr. Kristine Preiser has taken care of both our pets needs, Natasha, and Sir Brando. She is thorough and probably one of the best vets in this area.

Our animals adore her, and early this year we had to put down our beloved Natasha, a female Seal Point Siamese of 21 years, which was very hard on our family, but Dr. Preiser exhausted all other options before we had to say good bye to our beloved Natasha.

If it was not for her, and the entire staff at the hospital we do not know what we would have done. Two days after we had to say goodbye to Natasha, we received a card from the staff at Preiser Animal Hospital, and a cast of her paw print for us to hold and keep forever to remember her. This shows you how much the staff there cares, and you can rest assure that you are taking your pet to the best possible animal hospital in Illinois.

I find Preiser Animal Hospital's DVM's and support staff very giving, caring and professional.  This is where Chaucer's home was 5 years ago.   

The head vet tech, Jamie, is always very professional, well informed about Chaucer's medical behavior issues and is always pleasant and caring.  All in all this is the most caring competent and giving vet hospital I have had a pet treated at.  I am grateful to Dr. Kristine Preiser and Dr. Herbert Preiser, who started Heartland Animal Shelter and the animal hospital, which shows his concern over and over again for all animals and his "magic healing powers".

We started with Preisers' about 5 years ago after getting 2 shepherd puppies there. Both Murphy and Riley have received the best in care and kindness with the staff.  We increased our family with a crazy orange kitty named Cheddar from there also.  My daughter and son have since adopted Bones, Chowder and Chocolate.  Through the years there's been sickness, tumor, teeth pulled, and even a pancreas isssue and the Preiser staff have always been helpful and professional and treat us like family.  We appreciate everything they've done for us.

The Preiser Family Veterinarians have been caring for our family since the early 1980's.  As a newly wed couple we were eager to have pets in our lives. Dr. Herb Preiser and now Dr. Kristine Preiser have cared for our family continuously.  Nearly 30 years later, we are still so very lucky to have the compassionate and intuitive care of the Preiser Animal Hospital staff.  They are, like family, with us in good times and in bad.  We are lucky to have the Preiser Animal Hospital and Heartland Shelter to call our own.
