A Skilled Team Delivering Distinctive Pet Care

At Oakbrook Animal Hospital, we believe in the human-animal bond and that this bond enhances the quality of people’s lives. Dr. Tom Buckley has been helping area pets enjoy healthier lives since founding our animal hospital in 1993. In addition to his skills in all aspects of primary veterinary care, he takes a special interest in fields such as ophthalmology, pain management, and surgery. Associate Veterinarian, Dr. Larry Garten, has been with us since 2002, providing not only expert medical care but also a wealth of education and advice to pet owners. Dr. Hillary Henslee joined the Oakbrook family in June 2019. She is particularly interested in cardiology and dentistry. Dr. Eden Opie is our newest Associate Veterinarian and joined the team in June of 2022. Her interest areas include surgery, nutrition, and dentistry.

The Preventative Care, Medical Treatment and Surgery Team Gardner Residents Trust

Oakbrook Animal Hospital is proud to serve as a source for preventative care, medical treatment, and surgery that Johnson County and Gardner area pet owners have come to trust and rely on. Your special friends will benefit greatly from the comprehensive range of services and techniques we offer, such as:

Preventative Wellness Care

We provide ongoing wellness exams, vaccinations, and booster shots, parasite prevention, nutrition counseling, and other essential preventative services. Spay and neuter surgery can also be considered preventative care, not just for preventing pregnancy but also in terms of preventing reproductive cancers and other potential health hazards.


We maintain in-house lab testing, radiology, and cardiology services to provide swift, accurate diagnosis so your pet gets the care he needs as soon as possible.

Dental Care

We believe strongly that pet dental care revolves around regular dental evaluations and cleanings. We now offer digital dental x-rays to help with early diagnosis and treatment of a variety of issues, from periodontal disease to oral cancer.


We offer surgery, cold laser therapy, allergy care, dermatology, nutrition, and weight management services to treat a multitude of diseases and disorders, from chronic musculoskeletal pain to systemic diseases.

Our Reviews

A special thank you to the doctors and staff! They always treat our family with kindness and respect. They understand how important it is to us to keep our pets healthy and happy.
Cari and Jeff G.

I have worked with this clinic since I moved to the area 10 years ago and have developed a great relationship. I work mostly with Doc Buckley because of the onsite required with my horses bur have worked with Dr Garten also and have great respect for them both. Timely response, appropriate service and excellent communication has always been the standard of service whether routine or emergency service.
