  Hobson Valley Animal Clinic Rt 53 Woodridge Il 60517

The Hobson Valley Animal Clinic was established in 1986 by Drs. Mary Lage and Tom Husar.  Dr. Lage and Dr. Husar have been friends since vet school when they met the first day of class as anatomy dissection partners. Prior to opening Hobson Valley Animal Clinic, Drs. Lage and Husar started and operated the Emergency Veterinary Service in St. Charles, Illinois.

As owners, Dr.Lage and Dr. Husar share a strong commitment to providing personal care for their clients and their pets. Our goal is for Hobson Valley to be the animal hospital that we as pet lovers and pet owners would choose to go to.  In September of 2015, Hobson Valley bid farewell to Dr. Heigel as she left to  pursue a goal to help less fortunate cats and dogs as a shelter medicine veterinarian at ADOPT. We welcomed Dr. Linda Kopija to our hospital in April of 2015. There are three veterinarians here at Hobson Valley. This number of veterinarians helps assure that clients are familiar and feel comfortable with the doctors. Communication between doctors is strong and doctors collaborate on difficult cases. Drs. Lage, Husar and Kopija understand the special role your pet plays in your family. We are dedicated to becoming your partner in your pet's health care. We treat your pet as we would our own.


Along with personal service, our goal is to practice the highest quality medicine and surgery with compassion and an emphasis on client education and communication.  All our pet doctors realize the advances that are being made in veterinary medicine today and attend regular continuing education classes and consult with specialists when indicated.  We have relationships with many excellent specialists in the area in the event a referral is indicated.


Assisting in routine preventive care for young, healthy pets and early detection of disease and treatment of your pet if he is sick is very rewarding for us. We also delight in seeing long time clients and their families acquire new generations of pets to love. In recent years, we are seeing the new generation of families coming to Hobson Valley Animal Clinic as their parents did.
