Company Description
The roots of our practice go all the way back to 1969, when Dr. Robert Miller first started Arlington Heights Veterinary Hospital as a combination small and large animal care practice. The hospital has remained in the Miller family ever since, with Dr. Robert Miller's brother, Dr. Kenneth L. Miller, taking ownership of Arlington Heights in 1975 and shifting the practice's focus to concentrate solely on small animal medicine in 1985.
More than 40 years later, Dr. Robert Miller is still practicing at the hospital he first started, though it is now under the ownership of his son, Dr. R. Dale Miller II, who took the reigns in 2007 after working in emergency veterinary medicine in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Over the years, Arlington Heights Veterinary Hospital has become a mainstay of the Bloomington community, providing compassionate, professional veterinary care to cats, dogs and now exotics with the addition of Dr Giem. Our practice takes great responsibility in caring for animal companions, because we understand how important a pet can be to you and your family. Continuing what was started those 40 years ago, the scope of our practice increases every day.
