Biography: 

After completing her residency, Dr. Bongard worked as a Small Animal Internist at a private practice in Elgin, IL while working towards her board certification. She enjoys all aspects of small animal internal medicine and working with referring veterinarians to help patients and their families with the complexity that each individual case presents. She routinely performs abdominal ultrasounds, endoscopy, rhinoscopy, and cystoscopy. She has training in laser lithotripsy and basket retrieval for non-invasive urolith removal. Outside of work, Dr. Bongard enjoys spending time with her family (husband and daughter), Greyhound (Westy), and two domestic shorthair cats (Daisy & Brewer).
