Welcome To Essington Road Animal Hospital

Dr. Adam M. Abou-Youssef inherited his passion for helping animals at a very young age while working alongside his father. Since first established in 1987, Essington Road Animal Hospital has retained the same level of excellence and enthusiasm throughout the years by providing truly personalized and compassionate veterinary pet care in Joliet and the surrounding Will County communities.

Dr. Abou-Youssef, his associate veterinarian, Dr. Christine Kilpatrick, and their capable team understand that your pets are members of your family, and we strive to deliver the high-quality veterinary care your family deserves. Whether it is a routine check-up for your pet, or a more pressing, emergency, our entire team is ready to serve you and your pets in our clean, bright, and relaxing animal clinic.

We welcome families of every background; however, we are only fluent in English. Contact our friendly and welcoming team today at (815) 439-2323 to experience the comprehensive veterinary care that has made us a trusted member of our community for over 30 years. Our clinic is conveniently located next to the Super Car Wash in Essington Point Plaza.

Always love the staff here. Especially Dr Adam. He’s so great with my Teacup Shih Tzu Luna Moon & i see how he really cares for all his animals he has & takes care of. Highly respect him & recommend him! Prices are decent too!

They have received wellness examinations, spay/neuter, and treatment for allergies. The staff has always been friendly and professional and treats our yorkies like they are their own dogs. I would not take my dogs anywhere else.
