OUR CLIENTS

"My dogs and I had a great experience at [TPLO Chicago]. I felt very confident they were in the best of hands! Dr. Gendreau is a true "veterin" with his "specialty" and 40+ years of experience. His new facility is outstanding. All state of the art equipment and his system "Indigo Clean" for maximum sanitation and maintaining a germ free environment is reassuring against harmful bacteria, causing infections. It was a convenient, positive, successful experience. He's the best!"

"My 8 1/2 year old English bulldog needed tplo surgery for over a year. After contemplating putting him through [the tplo surgery with TPLO Chicago] we eventually decided it was the best thing to do. Dr. Gendreau called me the night after the surgery and the next day to see how zeppelin was and handling pain meds. I cannot say enough about how well the surgery recovery and overall well-being of zeppelin has been. If your concerned about putting your dog through the surgery the amount of time you think about it will be greater than it will be for them to be moving better again. The first 3 days are hard but after the most difficult part is keeping him from doing things he couldn’t do before (stairs, walks, jumping on the couch,). After the 8 weeks it’s nice to see him back to normal."
