About Us

The Doctor

Dr. Susan J Cechner graduated with honors from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in 1989.  Dr. Cechner worked for a small animal practice and emergency service in Schaumburg, IL, and an emergency service in St. Charles, IL prior to reopening the Elburn Animal Hospital in 1992.  Before becoming a veterinarian, she had attended Monmouth College and Rush University for a bachelor's degree in medical technology.  As a medical technologist she had worked for 4 years at Rush-Presbyterian St. Luke's Medical Center in the clinical immunology and biochemistry laboratories.  Outside of veterinary medicine, Dr. Cechner enjoys spending time with her family and pets, playing on the computer and reading in the tub.

All my old staff was great, but now if I bring anyone it will probably be by husband Daniel.  He likes dogs and cats, but truthfully if it is an exotic animal, I will probably be bringing one of my old techs.  He is a great guy, but we will not be doing surgery on your pet.  He does not do well with blood. So, he can hold on to that wiggly dog or cat, but I will bring back up if I know ahead of time that we need something more. So, keep me informed so that I bring the right support staff.
