Harbor Animal Hospital

Join our team

We are a full-service animal hospital treating the pets and families of the Northeast Lake County, IL and Southeast Kenosha County, WI communities.

Our Dedicated Team

On average, our doctors and staff have worked at Harbor Animal Hospital for 13 years! This shows our longstanding commitment to our team, our family-like culture, and dedication to professional growth and continuing education.


Equipment & Services

In addition to diagnostic and preventative services, our hospital is equipped with digital radiography, digital dental radiography, in-house labs, ultrasound, echocardiogram, SNAPshot Dx Analyzer, and VetStat Electrolyte and Blood Gas Analyzer. We’re focused on making sure our hospital has the right tools to allow our doctor and medical staff the ability to provide excellent service and care.

Meet Ivy

Brought in by a passerby, Ivy had been hit by a car and was badly injured. Dr. Bartlett could tell from looking at her that she had broken her leg very badly, and had probably suffered internal injuries as well. He was thinking through his next move (euthanize? surgery?) when she picked her head up and gave him a big lick in the face.  He knew then what he needed to do, and 5 years later Dr. Bartlett’s dog, Ivy, is full of energy and mischief.

Our Location

We are a full service animal hospital located in Winthrop Harbor, IL, on the northern border of Illinois and directly in the middle of two beautiful cities: Milwaukee and Chicago. Our area boasts many outdoor recreation opportunities and we have the largest marina in the Great Lakes—a boater or outdoor enthusiast’s dream come true! Additionally, our geographic proximity means candidates have their pick of cities (or states) to live in!

And we’re partners!

A partnership with Veterinary Practice Partners means each hospital has the support of a team of finance, human resources, operations and marketing experts.
