About Us

Welcome to Our Animal Hospital in Mokena

Here at Mokena Animal Clinic, Ltd., we take great pride in being the Mokena area's trusted stop for compassionate veterinary care. We understand that your pet is a member of your family, which is why we treat every patient like one of our own.

History of Our Veterinary Clinic

Our veterinary clinic was first established in 1982, so we have been serving the community for 35 years, providing a full-service veterinary facility to pets in need. Our clinic was started by our very own Dr. Wayne Ingmire, who established the first Mokena Animal Clinic location and has since expanded and moved to our current location here at 9455 191st Street. Our AAHA-accredited clinic is here to serve you and your pets with the highest standard of care.

About Our Veterinarians

With five different veterinarians on-staff, you can rest assured that your pet is in good hands. Our founder, Dr. Wayne Ingmere, has been practicing veterinary medicine since 1975, when he completed his studies at Kansas State University. His own father was a reputable veterinarian for 50 years in the Joliet area, and Dr. Ingmere followed in his footsteps.

Dr. Kate Ball is another one of our experienced veterinarians. She has been practicing since 1995, when she completed her DVM at the Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine. She is a devout pet lover who has a dog, two cats, several turtles and tortoises, and many other pets!

Dr. Mary Beth Wajda has been with Mokena Animal Clinic since 2006 and has been practicing as a veterinarian since 1995. She specializes in working with small animals and exotics, and lives in the Mokena area with her two dogs and one cat.

Dr. Audrey Fazio is our owner here at Mokena Animal Clinic, Ltd., and has been practicing as a veterinarian since 2008, when she completed her DVM at the University Of Tennessee College Of Veterinary Medicine. 

Dr. Andrew Bolokowicz has been with our clinic since 2015. He is a proud graduate of the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine and has a Boston terrier of his own.

  • "Dr Fazio and her staff have been treating our dogs for over 12 years now! They are extremely knowledgeable and have helped our dogs with everything from allergies to broken legs. They were also very caring with the passing of our 16 year old Charpie. We wouldn't trust anyone else with the care of our Poodles. We love and highly recommend Mokena Animal Clinic."

  • "This is no doubt the BEST animal clinic around. There is not a better place to take your pet to. They really show compassion and love for your pet. We have been through the happiness of a brand-new pet and the sadness of losing a pet with the Mokena Animal Clinic. They make you feel like family when you come in. Dr Fazio is fantastic and her staff is outstanding as well. Highly recommend to everyone we know."
