Welcome to Glendale Animal Hospital
Hello from Glendale Animal Hospital and thank you for visiting our website!
2013 was a great year for us with lots of changes and exciting new opportunities. We've welcomed some great new staff members, made changes to our clinic, and are moving forward with new technology to keep us at the forefront of veterinary medicine. As some of you know, our friends at Veterinary Vision have moved from Glendale Animal Hospital to Lisle Emergency. We were sad to see them go, but we are very happy to have Melanie, our Hospital Administrator, up near the front desk to help us meet and greet our clients and their pets.
We are happy to report that we are still working closely with Safe Harbor Rescue (located within Glendale Animal Hospital) to adopt out cats to loving homes. In 2013 alone they have found forever homes for 23 cats and for Payton, the fun-loving Rottweiler. It warms our hearts to see these cats return for wellness exams and to hear how they are doing in their new homes.
We've made a few cosmetic changes to the hospital this year, with more to come. Recently, we put up new signs outside, painted the interior, and tore down the old grooming and boarding buildings that were hiding behind the clinic. We're excited about all the changes and can't wait to see how they evolve in the future. Coming up in 2014, we will be making some minor repairs to the building, repaving the parking lot, adding new technology to make us more efficient, and getting some new decorations for the interior. We can't wait to debut some of the pictures from my recent trip to South Africa as art for our walls.
Recently we purchased a digital X-Ray unit for dentistry. The benefits of full-mouth X-Rays are immense, including less time under anesthesia and it will help us more easily spot issues that cannot be seen with the naked eye. We're so happy to welcome this new technology into our hospital. Once we have it up and running we will write up a more in-depth article featuring our new machine!
Finally, we'd like to thank our wonderful clients and their pets for making this an amazing year for us. We wouldn't be able to practice medicine without you. We thank you for your loyalty and faith in us to do right by your pets. Also, a big thank you to all of our friends that have "liked" us on Facebook. We truly love getting your feedback, seeing your pictures, and reading your funny comments. Please feel free to send us any pictures you'd like to see on our page. We'd be more than happy to post them.
We look forward to serving you in the New Year.
Dr. Lori Ann Civello, DVM
