” My dog was attacked by another dog this morning and a neighbor of mine told us to bring him to Mapleview. We did and they were able to do emergency surgery for him and save him. Had they not been open, or refused to treat him, I don’t know where we would have gone or what we would have done.
The doctor called me herself when the surgery was over and let me know what she did during surgery, as well as the extent of his injuries. When we were able to pick him up and bring him home, they discharged him with 3 different medications and I didn’t even have to go to the pharmacy to pick them up. Which is the absolute last thing I wanted to do after everything!!
They even told me how sweet of a dog he is which made my heart melt. We know how sweet he is and the fact that he was being so sweet after a trauma like this was amazing.
Sparky was not a patient at Mapleview, but he will be from now on!
I just want to thank you all for everything that you did for him, and for me today. You all were a blessing and I can’t possibly express how thankful I am to all of you. You are all amazing!.”

” The staff is very helpful and professional. The lobby and exam rooms are clean. My cat always feels calm when I bring him here and I think it’s a testament to the quality of this animal hospital. The care my cat has received here is wonderful and doesn’t break the bank! They listen to your pets issues and provide treatment until the issues are solved. The doctors we’ve seen are always very kind and helpful..”

It’s too bad so many 5 star reviews are being hidden by Yelp’s algorithm because I don’t think 2.5 stars is at all representative of Mapleview. We’ve been very blessed by the staff at Mapleview over the years where we have close family connections. Dr. Bader himself and his daughter cried when he had to put our family dog down. It doesn’t get more compassionate than that. We are so thankful for their massive generosity and learning experiences over the years.

The staff truly does have a passion for helping animals. They offer an in-house pet rescue/adoption service called Headin’ Home that operates out of Mapleview where they strive to find perfect fur-ever homes for cats and dogs. And I know for a fact that if you board your dog there, it’ll get lots of love and kisses from a certain staff member named Mackenzie!

They also provide the community with their annual Petapalooza every June which is such a fun outing for pet lovers. There’s something for everyone – an incredible raffle and silent auction, tons of vendors and entertainment, pet adoption, and a pet costume contest. Plus Dr. Bader does his part as a global citizen by building relationships with Guatemalan vet clinics!

” I can’t say enough about Dr. Bader and his staff. Had a very tough emotional situation tonight and they were amazing!!! I take my dog there but had a situation where I needed help for a dog that was not a client. They help without hesitation, stayed late, gave us the information and time we needed! Thank you again Dr Bader for going above and beyond!!! “

” The staff is awesome. They are caring and helpful. My regular vet didn’t preform the surgery my German Shepard desperately needed. I called around but couldn’t find anyone taking in new clients. The lady who answers the phone at Mapleview actually took time to ask the doctor and they made an exception. Dr. Jim went over and beyond by helping my baby with surgery… Including coming in to do it when he had the morning off, so he could fit her in without interrupting his clients schedules. He explained to procedure, what to expect with her healing process and was very gentle with her. I’m so grateful and pleased. I’m a loyal new customer for now. They had me at “we can help your girl. ””

” We were on vacation when I noticed my 13 year old Pom/Poo was having trouble urinating. A local friend recommended Dr. Bader at Mapleview Animal Hospital. I must say I was very happy with all the care and concern I received from the staff here. Over the course of a few days my furry kid was tested and diagnosed with an infection and put on medication. All is going well now and I want to thank Dr. Bader and all the staff at this hospital for being there and being so kind and concerned!”

” We’ve gone here for 20 years and always had punctual, knowledgeable and compassionate care, including when we had to euthanize cats.
Our most recent visit was because our 75-pound dog slipped out of her collar and ran into the path of a car. We were seen immediately by Dr. Jill and our pup was treated gently, examined thoroughly. Miraculously, she had no fractures but was very traumatized. I couldn’t ask for better care. ❤️”

“I left two other vets and 1,000+ dollars later to try Mapleview after a couple of recommendations. I was repeatedly taking my four legged family member in for treatments that were mostly fails at the previous vets. Mapleview has listened (important word) and did everything they could to help my dog. She is doing much better and they charged me reasonable rates! Thank you Dr. Bader for your caring heart and excellent care of my precious fur baby!!! “

” Dr. Bader and staff have cared for 5 of our dogs now, and we fully trust them to do the best for our pets. Their hours are more convenient than a lot of vets. After having a horrible experience with another local vet before coming to Mapleview, I can tell you 100% that we will go nowhere else.”

“Today is the 1 year anniversary of the day Mapleview Animal Hospital saved my dog’s life and I can’t believe I didn’t leave a review until now! I drove from Chicago because my intuition told me Petal would be in good hands here and I am so glad I did! Petal is a rescued french bulldog so I didn’t have a lot of background history on her so we did a full exam including bloodwork on her prior to surgery at my vet in Chicago and everything looked great. During surgery she went into cardiac arrest (always a risk with short nosed dogs) but the team at Mapleview was prepared, acted fast and saved her life! I truly believe that the only reason she is alive is because I trusted my gut and brought her here. Everyone was so amazing during every step of the way, even coming out to my car multiple times to update me because I didn’t want to come inside crying! I recently adopted another frenchie and I already know we will be coming here for his neuter! I can never thank them enough! “

” The staff at Mapleview is always friendly, helpful, & so caring towards my pets. Have been using their services for over 15 years now with both dogs & cats. They truly understand that pets are family members. They offered comfort & sympathy when I had to have my elderly dog euthanized. I recently brought in a new puppy. They helped him feel calm & comfortable in this new environment and were genuinely excited to meet him. Can’t imagine taking my pets anywhere else for veterinary care!”
