Date:10/16/2009

CHICAGO, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Chicago Veterinary Emergency Services (CVES), located at 3123 N. Clybourn, announced it will be going 24 hours/7 days a week for emergency care beginning this Saturday, October 17, and will open a new round-the-clock, state-of-the-art facility in 2010, more than double the size of its current space. Serving Chicago's pet owners and veterinarians for over 30 years, the new hours and forthcoming expansion will make it possible for CVES to provide the highest-quality and most efficient care possible for pets.

"Many nights our ER handles over 30 pet emergencies," said June LaFave, VMD, Medical Director of CVES. "It is a huge partnership with Chicago's veterinarian community. Now, CVES can provide intensive care services every hour, every day!"

Early next year, CVES will unveil carefully planned expansive space, services and faculty to serve Chicago pets.

"With our expansion, we will add numerous board-certified veterinary specialists in internal medicine and surgery, plus other principal specialists to offer care to critically ill pets requiring specific attention," explained LaFave.

Current staff ER veterinarians at CVES, with over 80 years of combined experience, include: Dr. Laura Beyer, Dr. Nathaniel Cook, Dr. Dylan Frederickson, Dr. Jerry Klein, Dr. June LaFave, Dr. Ingrid Manhart, Dr. Erin Tennyson, and Dr. Stacia Volbrecht.

The new CVES three-story, 15,754-square-foot building, opening in 2010, will be equipped with high-tech diagnostics, including an MRI and CT scan suite. An updated surgical room, extended treatment/procedure areas, additional intensive care units and exam rooms, plus an expanded lobby are planned.

CVES will also continue to house its special Blood Donor Bank, through which pet owners can volunteer to have their pet screened to give blood.

"Blood donors are critical for pets in need of a transfusion and having access to a supply of blood can greatly improve a pet's chance of recovery," added Gene Mueller, DVM, MPH, and Administrator at CVES. "We have 'superstar' blood donor dogs literally saving lives, and creating many smiles among our staff."

CVES is supported by a superior network of member and referring hospitals and veterinarians including: Abell Animal Hospital, Animal Ark Veterinary Clinic, Animal House of Chicago, Avondale Animal Hospital, Best Friends Veterinary Center, Blum Animal Hospital, Burnham Park Animal Hospital, Carlson Animal Hospital, Elmwood Grove Animal Hospital, Family Pet Animal Hospital, Higgins Animal Hospital, Home Veterinary Care, Hyde Park Animal Hospital, Mayfair Animal Clinic, McKillip Animal Hospital, Milaknis Animal Hospital, Mont Clare Animal Hospital, North Avenue Animal Hospital, North Center Animal Hospital, Seligman Animal Hospital, and Uptown Animal Hospital.
