About Rimkunas Home Veterinary Services
Dr. John Rimkunas has over 17 years of experience as a small animal veterinarian. He has been passionate about animals, particularly dogs and cats, since he was a child. Dr. John believes that because our pets are most comfortable in their own homes, treating them there can make for a most effective and positive experience for both pet and pet owner.
Dr. John grew up in Oak Forest, IL and attended Andrew High School. He worked as a veterinary assistant during high school, before graduating from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in Urbana-Champaign. He lived in Austin, TX for 13 years, treating cats and dogs in the Lone Star state before moving back to the Chicago area to be closer to family. Dr. John now lives with his wife, Kate, their 4 children and their 14-year old cat, Tasha, in Orland Park. When not practicing veterinary medicine, John enjoys cycling, family walks around Lake Katherine, visiting Chicago zoos and museums, and exploring Wisconsin and Michigan.
Dr. John and Kate homeschool their 4 children, and Kate has given birth to 3 of their 4 children at home. As such, they understand the central value of home in a family's life. John is excited to offer this service to other families who find it more convenient or relaxing to have their pet's medical needs taken care of at home.
