Who We Are

Modern Veterinary Medicine with Traditional Sensibilities

Urban PetRx is a locally and independently owned veterinary clinic proud to bring veterinary services back to the Bridgeport neighborhood of Chicago, IL. We strive to provide modern veterinary medicine with traditional sensibilities. This means we have developed a contemporary clinic to offer the best care available for your pet, yet we don’t subscribe to the practice of upselling our services. Our goal is, to be honest and fair and to never guilt you into doing anything. We offer a friendly, compassionate, and frank approach to caring for your family pet, all in a judgment-free environment.

Dr. LaFave is the founding member of Urban PetRx. She worked formerly as the Medical Director of the ER at Chicago Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Center, which is now MedVet Chicago. She has also held tenure as Chief of Staff at PAWS. She has a strong interest in urgent care, surgery, pain management, ultrasound, complex medical cases, and integrative therapies. She received her graduate diploma in Veterinary Western Herbal Medicine (Grad Dip VWHM) after completing a 2-year course of study in Western herbal medicine. She is also certified in acupuncture.
