When traveling with your pet(s), there may be animal health requirements specific for that destination. As soon as you know your travel details, contact us to assist with the pet travel process. Factors to consider may include meeting time frames for obtaining a health certificate, updating vaccinations, diagnostic testing, or administration of medications/ treatments. The US Dept of Agriculture has a comprehensive list of travel regulations for both foreign travel and state-to-state travel.

"I can't imagine ever having to take my furry family members anywhere else! Fantastic treatment for both your animal and you. They treat my dog like they love him as much as I do – from the front desk to the doctor. Always lots of hugs, petting, and kisses from the entire staff!" 

- Missy M. Bloomingdale, IL

"The staff at BAH is the best I have encountered. They took care of our dog Maggie for years before we had to let her go. The compassion, patience, and loving care that was given to her and we, her family, meant more than I can say. After about 1 year we now have Sadie and the same loving care is taken. God bless you all with a special thanks to Dr. Joe and Dr. Mike." 

- Peg and Julie

"Bloomingdale Animal Hospital is a wonderful place to bring your pets. My mom has been bringing our family dogs here for years. All the techs/nurses are great, front desk staff greets you and your puppy/pet as soon as you come in. Dr. Winfield is amazing. He takes his time explaining everything." 

- Michelle C., Chicago, IL

"The owners have great emotional interest in their animals. You are then, more than “Vets”. You treat not just animals, you also treat us…people. So, thank you, Dr. Engel and Winfield. You were all great help with your insight, kindness, and explanations.”

- Al and Sharon, Bloomingdale, IL

"Dr. Joe…Thank you for taking such great care of our dog Lila during her surgery and follow ups. It was a difficult time for us, and it was so nice to have a veterinarian that we trust to guide our decisions and take the actions necessary to help Lila get better! We appreciate your talent, integrity, and patience with our questions."

- Karen, Sean, Clare, Patrick, and Lila

"Dr. Winfield…We thank you very much for taking the time to explain everything to us. You also cured our little “Diamond”. Thank you for your phone calls to our house on your time. Thanks for the comfort."

- Juan and Angelica

"Dr. Heidi…you are a special person and an exceptional veterinarian. I know that all doctors in your field have a special place in their hearts for animals but I feel that you go above and beyond for your patients and their families."

- Kathy

"Dr. Joe…I want to thank you for all you’ve done for my pets and my family over past few years. I truly appreciate all your patience and willingness to talk with me during many difficult times with all 3 of our animals. Your thoughtfulness and compassion made the 40 minute drive to Bloomingdale Animal Hospital worth it, because I knew we were getting the best care"

- Lisa, Park Ridge, IL
