Animal Emergency Center Update

It is always best to contact any emergency center BEFORE going there to make sure they can see your pet, or to get additional instructions.

To help reduce the risk of an emergency situation, please do your part to contact us when your pet starts to show any signs or symptoms of concern.  At Blue Grass Vet, we are doing whatever we can to see as many critical cases as possible on top of our routine scheduled appointments and surgeries.  Please continue to be patient with us as we work through this difficult time.  If you have not already, please "like us" on Facebook, or "follow us" on Instagram for more hospital updates.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.  We appreciate your trust in us!

    Hospital Manager

    Hi!  I’m Annie and I’m considered the “cat-lady” of the clinic although, NOT a crazy one :)  I blame my mom for transferring her love of animals to me.  I snuck my first rescue kitten into a hotel in Chicago when I was about 10 years old so I could bottle feed her every few hours.  I covered her shoe box with a blanket and no one ever knew.  Growing up in the country, stray cats were a regular occurrence.  If they would let me touch them, they didn’t stay stray kitties for long (side note-bacon bits and butter are great tools for taming, but don’t tell the doctors I said that .)  The worst part about leaving home for college was leaving my kitties behind.  Stuffed animals are NOT the same thing!

  • Amanda B
    Registered Veterinary Technican/Assistant Manager

    I was ten when I discovered my passion in life. I arrived home from vacation one weekend to find a tiny, white fluff ball in my room. That little fluff ball was my very first dog and her name was Emma. Emma was an American Eskimo and throughout our lives together, she was my main frustration, yet my best friend. I received Emma as a present shortly before my 10th birthday, however, our plans were different than most. Emma and I began obedience and agility training at a young age. We traveled around the Midwest to various agility shows. Due to health issues, Emma had to retire early, but she received many titles and has quite the collection of ribbons.

    Veterinary Receptionist

    I grew up in Muscatine but moved to Davenport at the age of 21.  Cats have always been my favorite animals growing up as that was the only pet my parents would allow us to have, besides fish and the occasional hamster.  I would have a tendency to bring home every stray cat I found in the streets and hide them from my mom, but it never worked.  She would find out and had to tell me to quit bringing home stray cats because we couldn't afford to keep them all.
