Welcome to Holistic Veterinary Services
Your Veterinarian in Downers Grove,IL
Call us at 630-541-8733



Our goal is to help fix your pet’s health problems at the root.  Whether it be nutritional, related to vaccination, toxins, or something else, we strive to determine the cause and fix it so that your pet does not continue to experience the same cycle of symptoms for the rest of his or her life.



Our doctors take the time to really listen to you.
We are not quickly in and out of appointments as in some practices with a focus on vaccination.


Our doctors dig deeper into history as well as subtle signs that other non-holistic doctors may not consider significant to determine the best way to treat your pet.
Sometimes this includes conventional things such as surgery and pain medications as well as holistic treatments.


We help you be proactive about future care of your pet
by discussing with you things that may contribute to or worsen your pet’s condition and how to avoid these.


We make recommendations based specifically on your pet.
Your pet is an individual and what works for him or her may not be the same as what works for others.


We follow up with you to see if what we are doing is working and if it is not, then we recommend a different protocol.


Dr. Elisa Katz, DVM, is a certified canine rehabilitation therapist.  We offerlimited rehabilitation services.  We can perform a comprehensive rehabilitation examination, Dr. Katz will recommend exercises for your pet as well as any of the services listed below.
