Your local veterinarians in Chillicothe, Dunlap, and Peoria
The Peoria Area Veterinary Group understands these unique times. It is our pledge that we will follow all recommendations from state and federal agencies and will make the health and well being of our clients and staff our first priority. First and foremost, we provide important and essential animal health monitoring and care and, therefore, we will continue to operate. We recommend that older adults with severe underlying or immune compromising conditions reschedule their appointments.
If you, as our client or anyone in your family has a fever, flu-like symptoms, and/or a cough we ask that appointments get rescheduled at least two weeks in the future.
It will be our duty to double our efforts to sanitize common areas and surfaces, maintain distance and separation with you, and, most importantly, to do everything we can to help our older clients avoid direct contact with us and our potentially communicable surfaces and areas.
In an attempt to minimize overcrowding in the waiting area and the hospital, in general, we encourage you to not bring extra family members and/or your children to your appointment.
Again, our ultimate goal is to continue to provide our clients with excellent service and our patients with superior care while doing our part to ensure the safety of our clients and our staff during this very unique time.
Please contact us with any questions or concerns.

We love receiving feedback from our clients. Here is what they’re saying:
“Many thanks to Dr. John and his staff for taking such good care of our Brittany Spaniel Riley. From surgery to post op care, Riley was in such very good hands. We usually visit the Chillicothe Clinic, which is equal in care and quality.”
“I have gone to Dunlap Vet for a number of years. Between the Staff and the Dr.’s I simply can’t imagine going anywhere else. From Start to Finish I have ALWAYS been treated well and my Dogs have been treated VERY well! Lots of compassion from both Dr.’s and Staff.”
“Dunlap Vet Clinic II really cares about animals. They are compassionate, and they provide gentle, respectful, high-quality care to animals of all ages. Dr. Lisa is a phenomenal doctor, treating my cats Elliot and Phoebe thoroughly, swiftly, and to the personal level I expect. She treats my aging cats better than my own doctors treat me. The staff gets to know the pets and their parents. They are very compassionate at end-of-life as well, allowing me to hold my Elliot when he passed and giving me time with him, without rushing me or making me feel uncomfortable.”
“I have used Chilli Vet since Dr John Calhoun opened his practice in the little “taco” shop on 29. They have always been great to us! When our 1st 2 boxers were each going through separate cancer diagnoses, I could not have asked more of them. John has always made himself available to us whenever. Now with Dr. Deckhart and Dr Libby, we have more great vets to choose from! And thank you to John and everyone for taking such good care, without hesitation, of my rescue’s most recent intake, Bruce.”
“‘ve been taking my animals to PAVG for a very long time. Recently my 7-year-old cat has been very sick. Chilli Vet has been fantastic! They took such great care of my cat when he had to stay at the vet and kept me informed daily on his condition and treatment options. They allowed me to bring him in without an appointment and have saved his life. We are so grateful to have such a great vet for our animals! “
“We drive from East Peoria to Chillicothe to come see you guys! Love all the Vets and staff! They went above and beyond when our now 6-year-old Golden Retriever “Blue” was a very sick puppy and I’ll never forget that! Thanks for being such a caring provider for our furry family member!”
“I grew up taking our pets to Dunlap vet and have been getting wonderful care of my own dogs for the past 15 years. Exceptional care from very trusted vets and a wonderful staff. The only office I’ll ever use!”
“hank you SO much for your caring and concern for our little Cocoa! Your compassion and understanding of my feelings meant so much also. Thank you again!”
“Everyone was very welcoming and seemed to care about the best interest of my dog, Ruby. Would highly recommend choosing them as your pet’s health provider. “
“Love the Chillicothe office. Such friendly staff and are always concerned about the welfare of my fur babies! (Even Oscar the guinea pig gets excellent attention during his nail trim!)”
