• The first facility opened on Labor Day in 1978 providing after hours and weekend emergency veterinary care to the clients of the founding member doctors of the Chicago area.
  • Over time the name was changed to Chicago Veterinary Emergency Services. After many years of working in a cramped 25 ft wide building and growing in emergency numbers every year, it was time to build a new facility. The building immediately to the north was bought and it and the original facility were torn down. Emergency services were provided in a trailer while the new facility was being built.
  • CVES also offers specialty care in surgery, internal medicine, dermatology, dentistry, ophthalmology, imaging, neurology, cardiology and oncology, as well as 24/7 emergency care.

Our Design Philosophy

“The art of dancing stands at the source of all arts that express themselves first in the human person.  The art of building, or architecture, is the beginning of all the arts that lie outside the person; and in the end they all unite.” - Havelock Ellis
Building facilities unique to the owner’s special needs requires creative effort to balance function, aesthetics, durability and affordability in operation.  We help clients move through these challenges and manifest their dreams and desires in tangible form.
