Our goal at West Wrigley Animal Hospital is to provide long term care throughout the life of the patient. We have a particular interest in the geriatric patient with special health needs. This is the time when patients need the most chronic care and the most diligent treatment. We want to be able to offer the client all options available and to participate in the education of the client.
