What Our Clients Say

Lisa W.
BetterVet Chicago

This was my first time with pet care in the home. They were so nice and caring.

Sandra Stagg
BetterVet Chicago
They were awesome. They immediately put my senior dog at ease and gave me a thorough report on her health and a plan to move forward. I can’t thank them enough and I highly recommend their services.
Melissa S
BetterVet Chicago
We had to make the decision to euthanize our 15 year old dog. Dr. Karie and Joe were so caring, compassionate, and loving towards not only our dog but to our family. They explained the entire process and let us have time with our dog, talked to us about him, and made us feel so at ease. We were so blessed to have them be by our sides and how they made his last moments in a calm and loving environment. Thank you to both for making a very emotional and difficult situation less stressful. I would recommend these 2 wonderful people to anyone looking to have an at home euthanasia. Thanks again for loving our baby in his last moments.
Carol L
BetterVet Chicago
Our pets love Dr. Rives and Rebecca. We had them this time for our cat Shadow. He did give them a little fight but they got the job done. Dr. Rives did a full blood work on shadow and we know his problem and can fix it. Our dog Goliath absolutely loves them. I think he felt left out they were not here for him. What pet loves a vet? Goliath does! Shadow was really good he settled down and I think he knew they were here to help. BetterVet is the best thing ever.
BetterVet Chicago
My Zachary and I had such a wonderful experience with our first BetterVet visit! We were able to enjoy the benefits of a pet checkup and vaccination without any of the drama that happens when Zachary has to get in a pet carrier and then do a car ride. I look forward to calling on them for our future vet needs! My daughter is also going to have them come visit for a wellness exam for her rescue kitty who can’t tolerate a car ride either. I’m so glad I found BetterVet during an online search.
Bill Aguinaga
BetterVet Chicago
We used Dr. Karie and Joe for the first time to evaluate and examine our senior pet dog in our home. We figured it would be less stressful and much more comfortable for our Tessa. She arrived on time, answered every question we had, and was so wonderful to our pet, I cannot thank her and her husband enough. Her kindness, compassion and professionalism is a blessing to our family.

BetterVet Chicago
Compassionate and knowledgeable care as we made the decision for end of life care for Sweetie.
Dawn Dawson
BetterVet Chicago
Unbelievably compassionate and accommodating. They came to the house on a Saturday evening to tend to a dog that was suffering. It is very apparent to me that they are in this line of work because they truly love and want to help animals. They are very reasonably priced and highly qualified and professional. I am so grateful for the care they provided to my mothers aged dog. I will definitely recommend this clinic to every pet owner I know. Sometimes it’s hard or scary to know who to call to administer to your pet in time of great need. Anyone who uses this clinic can be assured they made the right call.
Gina Sabo
BetterVet Chicago
We have had Dr. Karie and Joe to our home twice in the last month. We had to put our beautiful boy down and chose their service of at home euthanasia. They made a horrific event so much more peaceful. They are both caring and explained everything that was going on. They also gave us plenty of time to say goodbye to our fur baby. We appreciated them so much we called them over today to vaccinate our 2 very hard to handle cats. It took some time but we got the job done. We would have had to sedate our rescued "somewhat feral" cats to bring them in. This was 100% better. Thanks so much for your time and compassion Dr. Karie!
Kristine Dvorak
BetterVet Chicago
This medical team is just what I’ve been searching for. The doctor and her assistant were on time, friendly, knowledgeable and really showed compassion for my pepper. I highly recommend BetterVet to care for your pet.
Meghan T
BetterVet Chicago
My cat is super anxious and gets so scared going to the vet. Having a virtual appointment was so much easier and I was able to get the answers I needed.
