Harbor Animal Hospital is proud to be an AAHA accredited practice serving the medical needs of pets and the veterinary community in Northeast Lake County, IL and Southeast Kenosha County, WI since 1988. We understand and value that special bond between pets and their families. We are proud to maintain a full on-site medical laboratory with blood count and chemistry values available for immediate u...rgent care, a dental suite with one of the few digital radiology units dedicated for animal oral procedures in Lake County, and complete Surgical and Radiology Suites providing the best possible medical care for dogs and cats of all ages. Our on-site Ultrasound imaging compliments X-Ray views to dramatically improve our diagnostic capabilities. Ultrasound allows us to provide ultrasound guided biopsies when necessary, allowing patients to go home sooner, often the same day. Most of our dedicated and compassionate team members have an average of over 15 years of experience.
