  From the Doctor...
My goal at Jewell Animal Hospital is to provide a warm, caring, and flexible environment for our pets and their owners. With an emphasis on great customer service and the latest medical, surgical, and pain management techniques, I want clients to walk away feeling that their companion animals received the best possible care and attention available anywhere in the city!


About the Doctors

Dr. Jewell - A native of the South Shore neighborhood in Chicago, Dr. Leonard Jewell graduated from Tufts School of Veterinary Medicine in North Grafton, Massachusetts in 1998. After briefly working in Massachusetts in both emergency and small animal medicine, Dr. Jewell got the opportunity to work at All Creatures Animal Hospital in Lake Zurich, Illinois under the tutelage of Dr. Andy Cox. Moving to Palm Springs, California, Dr. Jewell worked at Desert Animal Hospital, again, honing his skills at small animal oncology, internal medicine, emergency medicine, and surgery. Before starting Jewell Animal Hospital in March 2007, Dr. Jewell worked as a contract veterinarian in Chicago and the southwest and northwest suburbs. Working at close to fifty veterinary practices over the course of four years has enabled Dr. Jewell to envision the type of personalized hospital experience not found at most veterinary facilities in the area. Dr. Jewell has two sixteen-year-old cats, Elsa and Tiger, both found as alley kittens in the South End of Boston.

Dr. Chesnut - Dr. Danny Chesnut is originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan, but has been a resident of Chicagoland since 1994, when he moved with his family to Naperville. Dr. Chesnut obtained his undergraduate degree in Animal Sciences from the University of Illinois - Urbana/Champaign, then went on to receive his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the University of Wisconsin. He is particularly interested in clinical pathology, neurology and internal medicine, and is a member of the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association and the American Veterinary Medical Association. After practicing in the western suburbs for the past 2 years, Dr. Chesnut recently moved to Chicago with his dog Marci, a rescued poodle mix. In his free time, he enjoys cooking, reading, and spending time with his dog. And Dr. Chesnut is experienced in examining rabbits!
