Our Doctors



Dr. Susan Ferraro:

I always wanted to be a veterinarian. When I was a little girl Dad took me to his animal hospital and put me to work! Early on that meant cleaning cages and mopping floors! As time went on I learned the reception and assistant positions. Finally in 1985 I realized my dream when I received acceptance into veterinary college. I spent 3 years attending the Ross University College of Veterinary Medicine. In 1988 I was awarded a degree in veterinary medicine. After sitting for the various boards and tests I came to work for Dad at the Lincoln Park Dog & Cat Clinic. In 2000, I assumed ownership of the clinic.

I believe in preventative veterinary medicine. My wish is to extend the lives of my patients while maximizing their quality of life. This can only happen when Pet Owner and Veterinarian come together as a team. The supporting roles are played by the staff at our clinic, groomers, trainers and medical specialists. We must work together for our 4-legged companions. My goal is to provide state of the art medicine with a heart. The focus is to oversee and coordinate advanced care while providing general medicine and surgery on site.

I have a passion for organized veterinary medicine. I support membership in the Chicago VMA, Illinois VMA, American VMA and the American Animal Hospital Association. I sat on the Board of Directors for the CVMA and the ISVMA and also sat on the Human Animal Bond Committee of the AVMA. I also was a member of the City of Chicago Animal Care and Control Commission. I seek to honor the profession I love by giving back through volunteer work within these organizations. It is a privilege to be a member of such a venerable profession.

In my spare time I like to take Pilates classes, see movies on the big screen and partake of fine dining.. I share my home with my lab Max and my office with Sam the Umbrella Cockatoo and Wrigley our giant black kitty. If there were more days in a year I'd travel to far and exotic places.

Dr. Margaret Post:

Margaret A Post, DVM, grew up on the north side of Chicago. In fourth grade, she decided that being a veterinarian would be a wonderful way to combine her love of animals and her interest in medicine. She received her veterinary degree from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in Champaign-Urbana in 2001.

She firmly believes in good communication with the owners of her patients so that they may know how best to care for their pets. She strongly emphasizes preventative medicine, believing that "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure". When her patients do require treatment for illness, she feels that educating the owner about both the medical condition and available therapies helps the owner make better, more informed decisions for his or her pet. She loves her patients and wants them to have happy, comfortable lives, and she wants her clients to have good relationships with her pets.
