Meet Your Bloomington Veterinarian

It's important to have a vet you can trust close to home. Fortunately, our Bloomington veterinarian has the experience and passion it takes to truly protect your pets and help them get better. Dr. David Tatro is the general practitioner your family needs, and he has been a veterinarian in Bloomington for nearly three decades. He is proud to continue his long legacy of helping local cats and dogs with his extensive knowledge about allergies, skin conditions, gastrointestinal disorders, and more, and he works alongside a world-class team at our pet clinic.

Protect Your Pets with Preventative Care

From puppy and kitten vaccinations to soft tissue surgery for degenerative conditions, many of our veterinary services are designed to protect your pets and prevent unnecessary pain and suffering. For example, we offer routine spay and neuter surgeries to prevent unwanted litters and lower your pets' risks of certain types of cancer. We also recommend yearly booster vaccines and wellness visits to prevent devastating diseases and detect symptoms early enough for treatment.

Urgent Care at Our Animal Hospital

Our veterinary team knows that some problems cannot wait. If your dog or cat needs medical attention now, call us immediately. Our veterinary team is on call six days a week to provide emergency life-saving treatment at our Bloomington animal hospital. We do our best to accommodate walk-ins between appointments, but it helps to call ahead and find out what your pet's best options are. If we cannot handle your pet's urgent care needs, we will refer you to a local emergency veterinarian who can help.

Pet Skin and Allergy Treatments in Bloomington, IL

Dr. Tatro hates seeing your pets in pain or discomfort. Our vet has always been interested in treating skin conditions and protecting pets from common allergens and irritants. If your dog or cat shows symptoms of an allergic reaction or skin infection, we will work hard to diagnose the problem and treat the immediate symptoms. Our systematic approach to pet allergies may include a skin scrape, thyroid test, bacteria and fungus culture, blood chemistry test, and allergy testing to determine any allergies in your pet's environment or food.

Advanced Pet Diagnostics

Of course, our veterinary solutions are only as good as our diagnoses. At Fairway Knolls Veterinary Hospital Veterinary Hospital, we are committed to finding the source of your pet's symptoms and starting their treatment plan as soon as possible. Our Bloomington pet clinic is fully equipped to diagnose a variety of diseases, infections, obstructions, and more. Ask your veterinarian for more information about our blood and tissue testing laboratory, digital radiography and ultrasonography, heart diagnostics, and more.
