Primary Veterinary Care

Caring for the Pets of Chatham and Springfield, IL since 1996


Thank you for making us your “other family doctor.”

Started by Dr. Paul McGowan in 1996, The Village Veterinarian has developed a positive reputation throughout the community of Chatham (and beyond) for being a special place for families and their furry loved-ones. With compassion and excellent customer-care being at the core of our practice, we have created a strong bond with our clients throughout the years. We have our doors wide open for new clients searching for their family veterinarian.

The Village Veterinarian team is proud to offer their services to the canines and felines of Chatham and the surrounding areas! With a variety of services provided and excellent customer care/service over the years, the practice has been fortunate enough to grow. Our team members pride themselves on having personalized first-name-based relationships with all our clients and patients. Our facilities are inviting, spotlessly clean, and odor-free. We’re privileged to have such a loyal client base and thank all our clients/patients for choosing us as your “other family doctor.”
