  • Professionalism, compassion

I had to say goodbye to the best good girl there ever was, my 18 year old doggie Maya. I wanted to have it done in my house where she felt comfortable. By now she hasn't been able to walk in almost 8 months and had to wear diapers. In the past teo to three weeks her cough was getting worse from the liquid gathering in her lungs. All she was able to do was kind of "flip" over from side to side. I got increasingly scared that she would break her legs or dislocate her hips. I was hoping against hope, that she would just fall asleep and not wake up one morning.. She still enjoyed her food and would wag her tail from time to time ...she couldn't see too much and her hearing was almost gone. As hard as it was, the time has come to make the most heartbreaking decision I ever had to do. I was very lucky to stumble upon the VIP Vet Visit and DR. Karie and her assistant Joe. They were very professional but also very understanding and full of heart. Everything was explained to me beforehand and they even took time to pet Maya and tell her what a good girl she was. Everything went smoothly and I was given time to be with Maya for the last time while they waited outside for my go ahead to carry her away.
Thank you again so much for everything you did for me and Maya. I am very grateful to have found you. Only regret I have is, that I should've given Maya the Nutella instead of the peanut butter...healthy choices even in death ..oy

Dr. Karie and Joe were absolutely wonderful. We had decided it was time for our 16 year old beagle to rest. We could not have asked for a better duo to welcome into our home and help us with the hardest decision of our lives. Dr. Karie and Joe were warm, helpful, and compassionate. They gave us all the information and did it in a way that made us feel assured that we were doing the right thing for our boy. They gave us all the time we needed. Honestly the entire process was more calming than the days leading up to the visit. We got all works the paw prints, the lock of hair, and the rose petals. The silk and flower covered stretcher they put our boy on to bring him to his cremation, was absolutely gorgeous. In a way it made me laugh in the best way, seeing my baby on this beautiful material, knowing he would have hated it, gave me a wonderful last memory of him. Seeing him so peaceful was really the greatest thing we could have ever asked for. VIP Vet was truly the best way to honor our boy. It's never easy to make this decision but if it's a decision you have to make, Dr. Karie and Joe are the people you want to help you through. Thank you for your grace, humanity, and love for animals.

I have a senior compromised dog and a younger dog who was abused before she came to me. Dr. Karie and Joe are phenomenal!!! They came to my house and took such great care of both of them!!! They were patient and waited for the dogs to get comfortable with them and both dogs were remarkably calm during their exams. They answered all my questions and Dr. Karie gave me fantastic advice about the food I should feed them to help them get the most nutritional benefits. What I really like is how much they both care about my pets. If you want awesome in home veterinary care, call VIP Vet Visit!

Dr. Karie and Joe went above and beyond for our cat, Mona's last moments. They were so gentle, kind, professional, skilled, and safe. They both helped Mona transition on to her next journey and even placed her body in a lovely, ornately decorated basket, wrapped in blankets before taking her to be cremated. I mean...it was actually quite beautiful....it was like a little procession or life tribute. they were amazing.

I am so grateful for this service! I was flying from Chicago to Los Angeles with a new puppy and I was able to get squeezed in at the last minute to accommodate this. Dr. Karie and Joe are so incredibly kind, professional, knowledgeable, and thorough. When I am back visiting my family in the summer and winter they will be my first choice for care should I need it.

Dr. Karie has been amazing with my dog, Ellie. She is able to make her feel comfortable, especially with services being done in the comfort of my home. But she and Joe also got to know Ellie and play with her a bit so she was more willing to have her exam. Thank you Dr. Karie for the individualized care of Ellie!

I want to thank Dr. Karie snd Joe. They made saying goodbye to our Kelsey so much easier. Their kindness, compassion and paitence were a godsend. The whole experience was moving.
If anyone has to do the same I strongly recommend using their service. It was like having a private service to say goodbye in our own home instead of a vets office.. i know in my heart.Kelsey was treated with dignity and care. Thank you again and may god bless you for your work.

I was recently visiting Chicago from Montana with my 13.5 year old dog who had multiple medical conditions. After a week in the area, he contracted pneumonia. Imagine my distress to realize my best friend was at his final stage of life with his trusted and beloved vet 1,500 miles away.
i thank my lucky stars for the Google search that led me to VIP Vet. I emailed VIP in the middle of the night, and they were at my dying dog's side by 9 AM.
Dr. Karie and Joe made this very difficult farewell a most lovely memory I will always cherish. Their compassion is genuine and they treated me and my sweet old dog like family.
They explained everything clearly and with great care and understanding. Their gentle approach and delicate ways of caring for my dog and me just warmed my heart. Within moments, I felt as if they were family too.
Joe and Karie have thought of every possible detail, down to an angel winged blanket and flowered gurney to transport my dog to the crematorium. Because I had to leave back to Montana, they were able to get my dog's ashes to me the very same day.
I've never put a pet down before. I could never consider doing it another way or with anyone else than VIP Vet. The keepsakes they lovingly gifted to me will remind me of my beloved pet and VIP. They are Angel's!

Our 2 1/2 year old dog Kahra was having chronic UTI’s and we were trying to figure out the cause. We called VIP Vet Visit and Dr. Karie Johnson came out to our house to do an ultrasound to see if everything was looking good on the inside. She was so gentle and caring and my dog was totally at ease being at home. She diagnosed a small procedure we should get done on the hind end of my dog which we will get done ASAP.I highly recommend VIP Vet Visit.

We are absolutely thrilled to have Dr. Karie and Joe as our family Vet. After 11 years of many vet visits this was by far the best treatment my dog (Zoey) has ever received.
Zoey is very anxious to the point where I have to carry her into the doctors office. It’s amazing having a veterinarian who comes to you. Zoey was much more comfortable at home allowing Dr. Karie and Joe to effectively perform their services. Dr. Karie took her time and explained everything thoroughly.
She gave Zoey exactly what she needed for relief all while doing the necessary tests to find out exactly what was wrong. Karie also took the time to clean the wound and bandage it up. Past visits the Doctor only recommended what to buy and do then sent us on our way.
I Highly HIGHLY recommend VIP Vet Visit to anyone and everyone! These animals should always be given the treatment that Dr Karie & Joe provide!

Customer Testimonials

Dr. Karie and Joe come out to our home the same day that I called them. They were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and caring! I highly recommend them for the care of your pets. I definitely will be using them again. Thank you both for all you do.


Dr. Karie and Joe are amazing. They truly care about you and your pet. Every detail they think of to make your pet happy and comfortable. We found them just in time when we had to make the decision to put our fur baby down. I’m so glad we had Dr. Karie and Joe here by our side. I will recommend them to all my family and friends for all vet needs.


Dr. Karie & Joe were amazing when my 15 1/2 year old lab mix became unable to support herself and walk. They came to the house when I was out of options and had called so many others. I was impressed by the professionalism they showed and how they treated our Kaycee during her last few days. The difficult decision was made to let her cross the rainbow bridge and I tell you the step by step explanation of the process and the tender hands that gently touched her for the last time were nothing but kind and loving. We really respect what they do for people and the in home care is honestly the best! Thank you again for everything!


Dr. Karie and Joe were prompt and thorough in my dog’s evaluation. Made my dog feel comfortable and took time to answer any questions. I would highly recommend this practice and it was at home!!


Dr. Karie was wonderful! She came to my house in Oak Forest and performed a full exam on my 8 yr old Border Collie mix. Dr. Karie and Joe spent a lot of time getting to know her. Kali is a super anxious dog and finally tolerated an exam, happy in her own home!

From Our Website

VIP Vet Visit is a brand new kind of care in the veterinary industry. We have not only elevated the value we can deliver to pet parents, but we have completely reimagined how pet care should look in the 21st century. Each of our in-home services have a special "VIP Difference" that provides our patients with a higher standard of care. This unmatched 5-Star level of service is what initially separates us from the crowd. On a deeper level, our VIP membership goes beyond providing basic vet care, and instead offers a complete pet care option that covers everything from in-home exams and vaccinations to advanced diagnostic screening and access to chat directly with your vet.


Send us all previous medical records for your pet(s) or ask your previous Veterinarian to email us the records to: [email protected]. Reviewing your pet's records helps us better understand their health history and provide them with the best care. We can perform the examination and all of our services in any area of your home. We have found that pets prefer the living room ground or couch, but we can go wherever they are most comfortable. Even though we come prepared with towels, treats and teddy bears, you can also have their favorite toy or a familiar blanket handy to help them stay even more calm and relaxed.


Dr. Karie is a graduate of the University of Illinois Champaign Urbana where she completed her undergraduate studies and received her doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. She grew up with a love of animals that turned into a passion to enhance the human animal bond through a more informative and interactive care approach. She takes the time to educate her clients, while getting to know her patients on an individual level. Her methods of medicine allow her to catch illnesses early on and keep each visit as fear free as possible!
