Dr. Anthony Walley is a 2003 graduate of the Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine. He was born in California and moved to Iowa in his early teens.

He received an associate's degree at Ellsworth Community College in Iowa Falls, IA, before continuing on to the renowned ISU veterinary program located in Ames, Iowa. Anthony has practiced for several years in the Chicago western suburbs, and hopes to continue to do so. His wife is also a practicing veterinarian and they have 1 son, 3 dogs (Maddie, Henry, and Olive) and 1 cat (Rocky) together. Although Anthony is a experienced general practitioner, his interests include soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, dermatology, and oncology. He also serves as a board member of BaRC (Baxter and Rocky's Charity), a non-profit whose purpose is to fund medical procedures for animals in need. He is also a board member of the Will County Humane Society. When not working, Anthony enjoys spending time with his friends, family and pets, playing basketball, and gardening.

Dr. Horton’s special interests include abdominal and cardiac ultrasound, emergency medicine, and surgery. She decided that she wanted to be a veterinarian at five years old, and insisted to anyone that would listen in Rochelle, IL, that she was going to be animal doctor some day.
In her free time, Dr. Horton loves to spend time with her husband, two children and two dogs, Ben and Katie Bear. She enjoys getting outside as much as possible to garden and hike and is also hopelessly devoted to the Chicago Cubs and believes that this is the year.
