Dr James Antonicic Exotic Pets (Bird Vet, Reptile & Snake Vet)

Driving Directions

Dr. James Antonicic, University of Illinois Graduate

Hello, my name is Dr. Antonicic. I’m a veterinarian at Merrick Animal Hospital. I’ve been in practice since 1994. I graduated from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. I’ve grown up in the Chicago suburbs so I have been in this area for my entire life, practicing in the western suburbs since I graduated.

Dr. Antonicic treats birds, rabbits, snakes, ferrets…

I practice on all species. I see dogs and cats, as well as exotics, including birds, ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, pocket pets, and reptiles.

Dr. Antonicic performs veterinary ultrasound and laser therapy

In terms of the types of the medicine that I like to perform, I enjoy doing ultrasounds and I’m also interested in alternative therapies. Laser therapy, for example, which we offer, but also some things like herbal therapies, homeopathy, and I would potentially at some point like to also begin doing chiropractic and acupuncture.

Dr. Antonicic asks you to call him about exotic pets

I have two cats of my own as pets and I live in the city right now with my wife. On our free time, we enjoy spending our time in the city, enjoying what Chicago has to offer. Theater, dining, and spending our time out and about, enjoying the urban verve. I’d be happy to see your pets at Merrick Animal Hospital at any time. If you have any questions, please give me a call. Thank you.
