Burr Ridge Veterinary Clinic was founded in 1976 by Dr. Richard Velders, and has been AAHA accredited since 1992. Dr. Velders’ clientele base continued to grow with the clinic’s reputation for compassionate care. This eventually led to an addition to the clinic building which included expansion and remodeling of the waiting room, additional kennel and storage space and a staff lounge. Since our inception, we have continued to develop a reputation with our clients and our fellow veterinary specialists as a clinic that offers the highest levels of patient advocacy and compassionate care.

Over the years, we’ve assembled a dedicated team of veterinary professionals who remain committed to providing the highest quality medical care available. We pride ourselves on being kind and compassionate and delivering top of the line care within a family atmosphere. All of our doctors have been here for a long time and most staff members have been here for over 10 years. Our goal is to not only deliver top-notch animal health care services, but also to educate our clients so they understand the benefits of preventative health care and the many comprehensive services we offer.

At Burr Ridge Veterinary Clinic, we seek to understand each client’s needs and the uniqueness of their pet and we value the bond they have with one another. We deliver all of our services with friendly and compassionate care through an incredibly helpful veterinary team that tries to exceed our clients’ expectations with every interaction. Our patients include dogs, cats, pocket pets, birds, reptiles and exotics.

Over the past 30 years, the BRVC has seen a great response to our brand of compassionate veterinary care among our peers and within the surrounding community. Our doctors and dedicated support staff are committed to our mission and the vision developed by Dr. Velders in 1976, which has since been refined by the current owners. In the future, we will continue to offer our clients and their pets the very best in veterinary counseling and care.


At Burr Ridge Veterinary Clinic, we are building relationships through healthy pets.
