Media Information

Veterinary Specialty Center (VSC) is one of the largest independently-owned specialty and emergency veterinary hospitals in the United States.

Veterinary Specialty Center (VSC) is an independently-owned specialty and emergency veterinary hospital located in Buffalo Grove, Illinois.

At Veterinary Specialty Center we believe that the enormous impact of the high-tech, state-of-the-art services we provide compels us to expand our mission. We not only want VSC to be an organization that is good but an organization that does good; for our patients, clients, referring veterinarians, staff, community and the environment. We take this social and environmental responsibility very seriously; it shapes our unique culture and guides our growth and business decisions.

This helps differentiate us from other specialty hospitals. We lead the way in progressive medical treatments and are one of the few private hospitals to offer –

  • 3 Tesla MRI
  • 64 Slice CT Scan
  • Hemodialysis
  • Plasmapheresis
  • Stents
  • Non-invasive cardiac surgical procedures
  • In-house Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory with a Pathologist on staff
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

We also heavily promote community involvement including organized staff volunteer days and paid time off so that our staff can volunteer for organizations that are close to their hearts.

When it opened in 1976, VSC was one of the first specialty veterinary hospitals not affiliated with a university in the United States. In the years since, we have continued to innovate while providing collaborative care for our patients while working closely with their families and primary veterinarians. With over 40 doctors, VSC is home to a wide range of specialties with locations in Buffalo Grove and Crystal Lake.
