Our History:

Chillicothe Veterinary Clinic was established in May of 1999 by John W. Calhoun, DVM. It was originally located at 320 West Cedar Street in Chillicothe, Illinois. After three years of operation, the staff at Chillicothe Veterinary Clinic found that they had outgrown the 700 square-foot clinic and decided it was time to build a larger facility. Our current location at 1310 West Truitt Avenue opened its doors in October of 2002.

Then in September of 2006, Dr. John took ownership of Dunlap Veterinary Clinic located at 4620 W. Cedar Hills Drive in Dunlap, Illinois. This clinic was originally owned and operated by Richard Calhoun DVM, Jim Withers DVM, and Marvin Mitchell DVM.

As we continued to grow, we realized it was time to continue expanding. We have loyal clients from all around the city of Peoria and decided to open Dunlap Veterinary Clinic II located at 2815 West Townline Road in Peoria, Illinois. Our newest location opened its doors in October of 2007 and started offering Precious Pets Grooming services two years later.
