Our Mission

Our mission is to provide compassionate, exceptional, and collaborative care for pets and their families to build lifelong relationships through healthy pets.

Core Values

Burr Ridge Veterinary Clinic is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We are committed to treating employees and everyone else who comes through our doors with dignity and respect.


Our most valuable asset isn’t some large piece of diagnostic equipment or a computer network – it’s our people. They’re here because they show sympathetic concern and empathy for our patients and their families. While we believe and invest in the power of the latest veterinary technology, we never forget that compassion and experience are just as important when it comes to reassuring families their pets are in capable, caring hands.


Caring for the pets of Burr Ridge, Darien, Downers Grove, Westmont and surrounding areas is more than a job for us – it’s been our mission since 1975. That means we pursue excellence in everything we do. We have a lot of experience customizing care to meet each pet’s very specific needs, and just as much experience making pets feel comfortable and safe.


We understand that each patient is an individual and recommend preventative health care based on risk level, life stage and lifestyle. Our doctors and staff work together with clients to ensure patients receive the highest quality of care and personalized attention.

Full-time employee benefits include:

  • Medical and dental insurance
  • Paid time off
  • 401k with match and profit sharing
  • Employee pet care discount
  • Continuing education stipend
  • Professional license fees and dues
  • Uniform allowance

Work/Fun Balance!

We all know there’s more to a job than a paycheck. At Burr Ridge, you won’t be expected to work through lunch, and sometimes that lunch is even free, courtesy of our awesome vendors. Take breaks in our dedicated staff lounge. Help us decorate a holiday tree at Brookfield Zoo. Participate in training and enrichment programs with our partner, the local humane society. You may even find a homeless pet a fur-ever home by helping with our Facebook posting. And party at our fabulous annual staff gathering with the wonderful new friends you have made here.

Most of our team has been with the clinic for a decade or more, and that speaks volumes about this being a great place to work. If our clinic sounds like a good fit for you, please check out our current openings.
