Peoria Area Veterinary Group Building

Our History

Peoria Area Veterinary Group of Chillicothe 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 Peoria Area Veterinary Group of Chillicothe 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 2002.

Then in September of 2006, Dr. John took ownership of Peoria Area Veterinary Group of Dunlap 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 expand. We have loyal clients from all around the city of Peoria and decided to open Peoria Area Veterinary Group of Peoria 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.
