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.

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.
Vicki Sawinski
BetterVet Chicago
5 stars all the way around!!! Never going to an office again. Dr. Rives and Nurse Rebecca are a team of super heroes, professional yet relatable they took such great care of my baby girl and me! I highly recommend BetterVet and it's team. Thank you all so very much!
Chris Kelstrom
BetterVet Chicago
Dr. Karie and Joe came to help us say goodbye to Sammy. They were wonderful. They treated my Sammy like he was their own dog. Their gentile voice and touch immediately put us all at ease. I feel blessed to have their help with Sammy's transition to the rainbow bridge. They made a terribly sad experience better with their care, compassion and professionalism.
BetterVet Chicago
Thank goodness for this wonderful at home service. I have a young dog who was mistreated at a nail trim and now is very fearful of any vet or grooming services. Our regular vet suggested trying a mobile service as our last hope for care. Dr. Johnson is so kind and patient and helped formulate a plan that worked - even after a round of vaccines where my drama queen puppy sounded like he was being murdered, she said “that went great!” She and her team are miracle workers. Yes, you will pay a bit more than in-office vet services but you are getting a lot more. I would give 10 stars if I could.
BetterVet Chicago
Rebecca and Dr. Rives are a great team! Our first visit went incredibly well and I am so grateful to have found a veterinarian that aligns with my intergrative and holistic approach to health and wellness. This world needs more integrative doctors like her.
Matthew Sears
BetterVet Chicago
Were very kind and professional with my lil guy Omar who has gotten arthritis in his hindquarters. He is taking well to the care plan they gave us.
Mariah Kliewer
BetterVet Chicago
Our cat is impossible to take to the vet and gets very anxious and aggressive- BetterVet gave us peace of mind because he could finally get a proper check up! He wasn't scared at all and it was a much easier experience. Dr. Rives and Rebecca are wonderful - will definitely continue to use them as our veterinarian.
Maya Henry-Maingi
BetterVet Chicago
Very friendly vet and assistants, I really enjoy being able to get my furry baby checked out without the stress of dragging him to a vet office!
Christy Stewart
BetterVet Chicago
Best vet experience ever, truly. They make a great team!
Angie Zheng
BetterVet Chicago
We said goodbye to our first dog today, which was not easy. I'm convinced Dr. Johnson and Joe were born to do what they do as a profession. They show empathy, patience, and understanding. They communicated every detail, and were so patient with our dog. I am incredibly thankful for their services and that there are people like them around to care for and love our special family members!
