Our History

SportsVet Animal Medical Center originated as a home-based canine rehabilitation practice in 2003. Dr. Jacobs traveled throughout the state of Illinois, performing canine rehabilitation for a select group of patients. In June 2004, SportsVet was expanded into a full-service veterinary clinic and rehabilitation center exclusively for dogs and cats. Dr. Jacobs was finally fulfilling his vision: to provide pets and their owners with compassionate veterinary care and canine rehabilitation in one convenient location.
