★★★★★ Companion deserves many more stars than just 5. The Drs and the staff are the best in what they do. I’ve been with them for many, many years and the times they have gone above and beyond to answer a question, concern or to squeeze my pet in are more than I could ever count. I can be 110 % certain that my fur babies will get the best care possible and I’m thankful that they are my pups caregiver Just a great place with a great group of people.lisa A.lisa A. ★★★★★ I love the service and dedication of every single employee here, from the front desk to the nurses to the doctors, you can tell they love what they do. My dogs love every single one of them. They are trustworthy and their attention to detail is off the charts, always available to answer questions and ease my mind. I'll never go anywhere else.Michelle A.Michelle A. ★★★★★ I took my best friend here for her original prognosis, and eventually her final day. The staff was beyond kind for each step. I couldn't have asked for a better place to send my puppy to Heaven. She passed away in my arms, feeling safe. The cremation process was handled with so much thought and care. Today, I received an unexpected letter from them with prints of my dog's paws and a hand signed condolences from each of the staff. I let out the most primal sound upon opening that letter. This is the kindest veterinarian clinic I have ever stepped inside, and I seriously recommend this place, in life and in death.koi K.koi K. ★★★★★ The doctors and nurses were very friendly!! They explained everything in great detail and gave me lots of great information regarding my little fur babies!! I had to have one of my fur babies put to sleep, they did a wonderful job, and they were very caring and sympathic towards me during this time. I honestly love Companion Animal Hospital!!!Shirley M.Shirley M. ★★★★★ Took my pup there for a checkup and vaccinations. A great visit for the both of us. First, this building is nice and clean. The staff, VERY friendly and polite. This is my first pup in YEARS. What I recall from taking my first dog to the vet before was her hating it and terrified. Now, the only time my pup cried was as we were leaving lol. The nurse was super friendly with him and so was the Dr. The Dr gave him his shots so smoothly that not even I noticed it lol. I HIGHLY recommend this facility!!!Taz D.Taz D. ★★★★★ I recently had an slight emergency incident with one of my dogs, (on a Sunday evening) and I call my personal vet and many others with no luck. I call Companion 24 hrs service number and got information on what I needed to do to help my dog until we could we could go in the next day. I then called Companion Animal Hospital in Kenosha, and received nothing but the best service. Staff was fantastic, caring and willing to help in any way. They fit me in their schedule, they treated my dog with absolute care, and constantly kept me up to date on the procedures they were doing throughout the whole visit.They even called the next day to see how she was doing. I can't wait to go back for follow up visit. I would definitely recommend this hospital to anyone and everyone.Amy H.Amy H. ★★★★★ Compassionate care with excellent customer service.
