Unfortunately our first time using this facility was not under good circumstances. Our elderly dog who had been slowly declining in health over the last year had a seizure on a Saturday morning and we knew it was one he would not be recovering from. We called Elwood Animal Hospital and they were able to quickly get us in to say goodbye to our beloved pet. Dr. Jonathan Raichel and all of the staff were very kind and compassionate to our situation. As emotional as the process is, they made it as peaceful as it could be.
