Our Hospital

Hospital Overview

Established in 1978 by Dr. Thomas E. Lassiter, VCA Arboretum View Animal Hospital has serviced the Downers Grove, Lisle, Wheaton, Westmont and Naperville areas for over 40 years. From our humble beginnings as a brick home that Dr. Lassiter purchased, the building was remodeled and zoned appropriately to function as an animal hospital which originally contained a reception area, two exam rooms, a pharmacy, kennel, laboratory, radiology, ICU, surgical suite and an office. Since then, the practice has continued to expand beyond the boundaries of the building itself, undergoing a remodel in 1990 as veterinary specialists continued to join the staff at the hospital. Continuing to expand, Arboretum View Animal Hospital built a new building and, in 2002, the entire practice was moved to the hospital's current location at 2551 Warrenville Road in Downers Grove, Illinois. Purchased by VCA in 2011, VCA Arboretum View Animal Hospital continues to expand, increasing the variety of services offered at a steady pace.

VCA Arboretum View Animal Hospital offers a full range of veterinary services including Internal Medicine, Interventional Radiology, Community Practice, Neurology, Dermatology, Surgery, Rehabilitation and Emergency and Critical Care. Our highly trained veterinarians, specialists and staff members are dedicated to providing high quality care to the fuzziest members of your family. It is our goal to treat all animals with respect and dignity and to ensure that the concerns of their families are heard and addressed as we strive to practice quality medicine for the pets that are entrusted to our care.

Our hospital is pleased to be one of the few animal hospitals in Illinois to offer Interventional Radiology services (IR.) IR has been used in human medical care for over 20 years, but this approach has only recently started to be applied to veterinary patients. The use of IR allows for complex procedures to be performed, allowing live imaging of the patient as our specialist performs their procedures. We are proud to be one of the first animal hospitals to be able to offer this to our clients and their pets.

If you have questions or concerns about your pets or the services that we offer, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to meeting you and your pet and being able to be of service to your family for years to come.
