Chicago >Delta Animal Hospital
“Very nice people.”

35 YEARS AND GOING STRONG!!.
Father/daughter team -- Dr. Luke and his daughter, Leslie are FANTASTIC! SOOOO friendly......VERY caring and listen to your concerns; they give great advice, are highly knowledgeable. They have been in business for 35 YEARS!! which says a LOT about this place!
I used to live across the street from here......about 11 years ago and used to take my dog there....he had testicular cancer.......they made him comfortable for a while.........which i was VERY grateful for.........
I'm now living quite close to Ukrainian Village now and HAD to keep bringing my babies back for vet service!
It might not be "fancy"...that's ok! It's the CARE that matters! and boy -- do they CARE! This is their passion -- to take care of animals and help those who are looking for "lower cost" care.........
I am an EXTREME animal lover and would NOT go anyplace else!! THIS is my vet for life!!
This vet is located in the trendy Ukrainian Village area.....it wasn't this trendy when i lived there 11 years ago!
Dr Luke has maintained his presence in this neighborhood for 35 YEARS!! THAT should tell you something!!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED..........YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

PRICING UNBEATABLE I WISH MY OWN CARE GIVER WAS AS CARING AND CONCERNED
Delta Animal Clinic.
I had surgery done for My 9yr old german shepard.
The tumor removed same day, took him home.
Doing fine I had quote for same surgery at Banfield Animal Hospital priced double.
I would recommend Vet, you need to research your pets symptoms before proceeding.
Good Basic Vet Service. First off the place smells no worse than any other vet I have been to....and I've had several dogs and cats throughout my life. The place is small and not super modern but the service was good. Dr. Luka took care of my kitty I actually switched vets b/c the one I had previously couldn't diagnose him properly. So service was pretty good prices were pretty good I would recommend for common veterinary needs, however for more serious cases maybe not only because like I said not super modern or updated.
I like em 7 will be returning. After reading all the reviews, I took my two Coton De Tulear's to the doctor for basic immunizations today. I realized it was a family owned and run business, some bickering went on in office, true, not appropriate under most circumstances, but who cares. They charged exactly what was quoted, most vets try to sell,sell, sell more shots, meds, etc. They have the the shots that do not include the Lepto, which many dogs will have bad reactions to (do your research). I will be returning in October to have my boys teeth cleaned, I will follow up on the outcome of that.
Ear crop, tail docked, dew claw removal.
My wife and I took our Doberman Pinscher to Dr. Luka to have a series of procedures performed after Dr. Luka guaranteed me an amazing price over the phone.
We arrived as soon as they opened on Friday morning, and the place looked clean and smelled fresh. The doctors kept in contact with us throughout her stay to keep us updated on her condition throughout and after surgery, which was greatly appreciated.
The next morning, we picked her up around noon. There were several other dogs either in surgery or in the kennels, and we did notice a smell only because the kennels are right next to everything. It's in the city though, so what do you expect?
Our dog looks unbelievable. Surprisingly, when we picked her up, she didn't seem upset or distraught about her stay overnight, which is more than I can say for other places I've taken other animals to. The doctor gave us clear instructions on the proper care and maintenance of her incisions, and offered us deworming and recommended special vitamins for our dog's diet, at a better price than pet store's mind you, however we weren't interested and simply said "No, thank you", to which the doctor replied, "OK". Very nice people.
Overall, we couldn't have been happier with our experience with Dr. Luka.
The final results of her surgery will be revealed in a few months, but from the looks of it, everything looks perfect, even before it's beginning to heal.
I would most certainly recommend Dr. Luka to anyone looking for a good surgeon, who doesn't charge out the rear for simple procedures, this is your doctor. Some of the places we got quotes from, actually quoted us as much as $500-$1000 more than what Dr. Luka performed for all 3 procedures.
The WORST vet in chicago.
this place is HORRIFIC. I called earlier today to ask about getting some vaccination records faxed over, and the phone conversation i had was so rude and unprofessional i couldnt even belive that I was speaking to a real buisness. They answered the phone "Hello? ....yea what do you want." I asked for the records and was told that whoever I was speaking to didn't have the authority to use the fax machine. (what?????) I then asked to speak to someone who COULD use the fax, and was told whoever that was couldn't be there until next monday (this was a tuesday.) The rude, incompetent person then tried to tell me that the dogs didnt need the vaccinations i was asking for (because "They already got da pillz. they dont need shotz they already on the heartgaurd pillz") The fact that they dont heartworm test is a potentially fatal practice. I asked to speak to a manager, and he put me on the line with a veternarian who questioned why i even cared about a dogs vaccinations, and told me that the facility dosent even OWN a fax machine. I asked him his name, he got angry, and started screaming at me until i hung up. It was horrible. Anyone who takes their dog here has GOT to be crazy. How are they in buisness????
ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK. I recently received a dog that Dr. Luka did a health certificate for. The dog in question was a clear case of NEGLECT. He is a 70 pound dog and was gone from me for 6 months. In that time the dog lost 18 pounds and Dr. Luka of Delta Animal felt that this emaciated dog was safe to travel in temperatures of 25%. When called and questioned, he just attempted to rush me off the phone with no care what-so-ever for the dogs condition.
Don't let the smell fool you. Yes it smells ripe and is not a modern glitzy vet office but I have been going to Delta for 15 years or more and have been always more than satisfied. My dog had a problem and I felt like the technology was not right to correct the issue. Went to another vet, got piles of medication, and a large bill but the problem did not go away. I went back to Delta and tried their simple, home remedy and the problem cleared up in a matter of days. When my dog was at the end of it's life they were honest and forthright. I again did not believe them and went to another vet. They said 'no worries', and charged me lots of money and gave me lots of pills. Delta was again right. The guy knows his stuff, is always available, fairly priced, and as honest as is humanly possible. My new dog is his patient and I have no hesitations about recommending Delta to anyone.
not a real vet - just plays one. I should have listened to the other reviews but decided to take a chance. My cat was suffering from mouth problems and I thought it was her teeth. I went to Delta who gave a cursory look, diagnosed gingivitis put her under and cleaned the teeth and I left thinking I got a good deal at 150 dollars. A week or so later she still wasn't eating so I took her back and he acted like he barely remembered and looked at her again, gave her a tiny bit of water in an IV and a shot of B12 for appetite and sent me on my way. Went back again a month later due to further deterioration of cat's condition and the vet could hardly decipher his own scribbled notes on a card and I had to remind him of everything. I pointed out that her mouth wouldn't open or close all the way, the drooling, inability to meow anymore etc and he just gave me a blank look and made no comment as if he wasn't really paying attention. He took another cursory look said the gingivitis was back - jabbed a needle of antibiotics into my cat's rump making her scream, recommended more antibiotics "until it goes away" and sent me on my way again. At this point I started to wise up and the next day took her to Mid North Animal Hospital - a real vet for a change. Five - ten minutes into a very thorough and gentle examination the vet sympathetically broke the news that my cat has fairly advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the jaw. She has maybe 2 more months if lucky. I think it's time for Delta to hang it up.
