Since opening our Schaumburg, Illinois veterinary practice doors in 1993, we've had this vision and philosophy:

  • We are here to serve people who are as passionate about the health and well-being of their pets as we are about our own.
  • We care for companion pets from their juvenile period through their geriatric years, providing high quality medical care with love for the pet and deep respect for their human partners.
  • We are mindful that wellness focused, preventative and integrative veterinary medicine is the BEST medicine!
  • We make our practice an emotionally safe and comfortable environment for pets and their people.
  • We promote, achieve, and teach excellence in integrative and preventative veterinary medicine.  
  • We acknowledge the joy and wonder in what we are privileged to do, every day.



Twenty one years ago, we were the first practice in the entire Chicago metropolitan area area to practice integrative wellness medicine.  And we're still the best, as well as the most knowledgeable.  We have served as teachers, mentors and role models to other area veterinarians and practices for over 25 years.  Our joy and our delight in caring for our patients shows, every day.

We'd love to meet you and your pet - please use the e-mail logo on the top of this page to reach us.   Or, make an appointment to stop by for a cup of herbal tea and a quick tour of our hospital, conducted by one of our Nurses.  

You are never a number to us at Knollwood!  We evaluate and treat all patients as the individuals that they are.  After a careful and thorough evaluation, we will be pleased to provide any requested information about anticipated services.  

Thanks for visiting!  We hope you'll tell your friends about us, and we look forward to serving you soon.




Dear Everyone at Knollwood;

There is no other place besides your hospital where I feel safe to say exactly what my Sophie means to me.  I cried when I talked about her in the office last week.  My regular vet's office just doesn't understand.  The told me to put her to sleep.  They're good Doctors, but I know they think I'm weird for wanting to keep her happy and healthy at her age (14).  But I know that Dr. Mitchell, and Sylvia, and your Nurses, get that old age is not a disease, and that our dear pets ARE important and mean the world to us!   I know that someday, and maybe soon, the time will come for my girl.  But until then, I want her to feel good and be happy, and I know that everyone at Knollwood will help me do that.  Just like I know that you'll be honest with me, when her time DOES come.  I promise l will listen, like Dr. Mitchell says, with not just my mind  but my heart.  Just like all of you have always listened to me, with both a loving and  open heart and mind.

P.S. That last acupuncture and the new herbs are really helping her.

Thank you always, Edwin C., Palatine
