Founded by Dr. Jessica Miller in 2010, Your Pet’s Wellness is a modern animal hospital and house call service located in north Bucktown, Chicago. We specialize in providing compassionate and comprehensive veterinary care for dogs, cats, and the people who love them. At Your Pet’s Wellness, we believe in providing our patients with the best veterinary care available. This starts with continually staying at the forefront of veterinary medicine by dedicating ourselves to learning about the newest advancements, and applying them to daily practice at our hospital. We recognize that dogs and cats that live in the city of Chicago each have unique needs, and customize our care plans for every individual. We have committed to making sure our clients completely understand their pets’ health by taking the time to thoroughly educate and communicate during every exam. Unlike other hospitals that rush patients in and out the door, we reserve an hour of time for all new patients and sick patient exams. Furthermore, our dedication to all pets extends beyond the hospital walls, as we work together to help care for animals at local shelters and rescue organizations.
