Medical Emergency

If we are closed and you feel your cat is experiencing a medical emergency, please contact Veterinary Specialty Center at 847-459-7535 or Elk Grove Veterinary Specialty at 847-584-0200.

According to a national pet owners survey in 2017, just over 94 million homes have cats living as household pets in the United States. Doctors Bob and Gloria Esbensen opened Arlington Cat Clinic in 1988 in response to that growing number of feline families. They saw an opportunity to focus on feline diseases, in a “cat friendly/dog free” environment. The clinic fills a unique niche in the Northwest Suburbs, and was the third feline veterinary clinic established in the Chicagoland area.

Very gentle efficient cat care. The staff is friendly and helpful. They really do understand behaviors of cats and put them at ease.

We’ve been taking our two cats here for a while. It’s a great alternative to a normal “vet”- I’ve always preferred Cat Clinics to Vets as I feel like they’re more specialized and the cats get the attention they need/deserve. This location is great for us, fairly easy to get an appointment with (no huge waits) and always reminds us of upcoming appointments, shots needed, etc. The staff has done a great job during COVID to ensure safety for all. Some of the staff are a little more friendly than others, but you’re going to get that anywhere you go. They are able to do surgeries, give prescriptions and do blood work, so it’s a great one stop shop!

This clinic has been our cat’s primary care place for so many years, and all the staff are always very nice and professional. Last year, we had to put one of our very loved cat to sleep. When they did it, they did by showing care and respect. It was sad moment, but there was no unnecessary stress which we appreciate. Since pandemic, unfortunately, we are not able to come inside and talk to doctors face to face. But that is for safety reason so there is no complain about it. Good place for cats!

The staff is 5 star!!!! The veterinarians REALLY care about your pet and it’s well being. I feel confident that my cat is receiving the best care possible. I’m so happy that I found them.

I moved to the area almost 3 years ago and was so happy to find a clinic that is specific to cats. They are very helpful, professional, and reliable, and you can tell that they all truly care for the cats. Over the 3 years, we have had different vets and vet techs assist us there, but no one truly stood out to us the way Dr. Grott did recently. We have a cat with special needs, and it can be very difficult but she was able to be helpful, informational, and show us a lot of compassion. We know moving forward that for our cat’s visits and yearly check ups, we will request for her!

I can not say how appreciative I am of them. If you live nearby and you need a place to take your cat they are by far the only place I would go. The care they give, the insight, loving, attentive, understanding, and genuinely nice people. I have had very ill senior cats that would not have had the quality and length of life if it wasn’t for the Arlington cat clinic. I don’t know why but you would think a specialty clinic would be more expensive but I saved money taking my cat for better care. Everyone there is a cat lover and understands a cat parent point of view. They make sure you understand what’s happening and explain why they are doing what they need to do. Honestly this place is amazing and I wish I could go there for my care. Can’t say enough good things except thank you!

I much prefer to take my cats to a cat clinic vs a regular vet clinic. Arlington Cat Clinic is a great place to take your cats. The doctors and the staff truly care about their feline patients. I trust them implicitly.

So happy we found this cat clinic. During the pandemic they’re taking great precautions to keep safe. The staff have been wonderful. The vet spent a lot of time answering my questions and providing information. We’ve had nothing but great experiences here.

I love this place!! We’ve been coming here for the past 8 years. I love how they greet and take care of my babies like if they were their own. They’re transparent about the procedures done and the cost. I honestly have nothing bad to say and I highly recommend them.

Acc has taken fabulous care of our 4 cats for over 25 years. We can’t recommend them highly enough. Wouldn’t want to go anywhere else even though we now live in lake bluff

I got my first dog recently and took him for his first visit at Arlington Cat Clinic. Everyone was so friendly and didn’t mind my beginner questions as a first-time dog owner. Thanks everybody!
