And the Readers' Choice for Best Animal Hospital is...

All week long we asked who you trust when it comes to providing the best care for your four-legged friend. Based on your votes, we found a winner.

It was a very close contest, but when asked to vote for the best animal hospital in Naperville in our , you chose .

Rankings were determined based on a combination of total votes and reviews in our business directory. VCA Naper Ridge Animal Hospital received 28 percent of the vote while County Line Animal Hospital came in a close second place.

Reader Barbara Morgan gave VCA Naper Ridge a :

"The only vet service we have used in the 17 years we have lived in Naperville. Can't say enough wonderful things about the staff and doctors. Caring, considerate, compassionate."

And readers had some great things to say about the other nominees as well.

 "We have experienced over twenty-five years of consistently excellent care for our pets at . The amount of time each vet has given to our animals, the care and compassion they have shown, and their willingness to be open and forthright - especially with those heartbreaking end of life issues all owners eventually deal with - have earned them our gratitude, respect, and loyalty. Ann and Jim Jasper"

Thanks to everyone who participated. Even though the poll is now closed, you can still  about this newly-crowned Readers' Choice winner on their business listing page.

The body of the story mentions County Line as a close 2nd. Elsewhere Boulder Terrace is highlighted as 2nd. Please clarify. Thanks, Barbara L.

Hi Barbara, thanks for pointing that out. While County Line did come in second, we decided to highlight a review that a reader wrote about their experience at Boulder Terrace to give a taste of what readers had to say about the nominees. Hope there isn't any confusion, thanks for reading!
