A Warm Welcome to our new Associate Dr. Daniele Milazzo. Call and make an appointment with her – she is excited to meet you and your pet!


We want you to be aware that Hill’s Pet Nutrition is voluntarily recalling select canned dog food due to potentially elevated levels of Vitamin D. We checked our stock and pulled the few cases of food that were on the recall list.

For more information and the complete list of affected products, click here.

If you discover that you have food on the recall list, please bring it back and we will replace at no cost to you. We are also available to answer questions at (309) 662-3633!

And now, a few notes about our services…

Dr. Bortell has been busy offering Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine techniques! If you are interested in learning more, schedule a TCVM Consultation and see if your pet can benefit from Herbal Medicine or Acupuncture Treatments.

Dr Heiden is taking appointments for Chiropractic treatments for both dogs and cats. Chiropractic is beneficial as a stand-alone treatment or when used with acupuncture and laser therapies.

We also offer Laser Therapy treatments for both dogs and cats. We are seeing good results when Laser, Acupuncture and Chiropractic are part of the treatment plan.

And, we now offer an in-house, full-service ultrasound service – ask us!
