  • "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."
