Ronald C. Bowen D.V.M.
Growing up in Southern IL, where racehorses were part of the family, it seemed like a natural choice for Dr. Ronald C. Bowen to choose equine medicine for his career. After attending and graduating from the University of IL in 1970, Dr. Bowen's goal changed to small animal medicine. He concentrated on the needs of geriatric pets and found this to be a large part of his practice today.
Oak Village Animal Hospital opened up its doors in October of 1974 on 95th street in Oak Lawn, IL. Dr. Bowen then moved to his present location at 9748 Southwest Highway, Oak Lawn, IL, in November of 1981. Since then, his practice has grown tremendously and achieved what he set out to do. In 2000 Dr. Bowen and his wife Debbi, moved to Beecher where they have horses, chickens as well as cats and dogs.
Dr. Bowen's area of special interests include Allergies, Geriatric Pets and Life Longevity. His oldest patient was known to see the age of 27. Dr. Bowen hasn't found the 'Fountain of Youth' for his patients, but he has certainly found something pretty close. His practice is keeping up with today's excellence in geriatric medicine and nutritional care. To quote Benjamin Franklin "An ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure.", this is something that Dr. Bowen firmly believes in. Dr. Bowen's practice motto : "We'll do whatever is best for you and your pet".
