Providing High Quality Veterinary Care to Kenilworth Illinois Pets.
Terry Animal Hospital is one of the few animal hospitals offering pet acupuncture in the Kenilworth area and the surrounding Chicago’s North Shore. Acupuncture is a treatment method used in conjunction to traditional veterinary medicine. For more than 3,000 years acupuncture has been used as a means of stimulating specific points on the body to release neurotransmitters such as beta-endorphins and serotonin. Acupuncture has been found to reduce pain associated with hip dysplasia, ligament injuries and arthritic conditions. Can also reduce seizure duration and frequency and lessen effects of allergies.

“All of the Doctors and staff truly care. Probably the last practice of its kind. I drive 120 miles to come here. That should speak volumes. The level of compassion has not changed since Dr. Terry (1960’s).”
