We would like to update you on some new COVID-19 policies. Beginning Monday May 3rd we will start the process of reopening to the public with some continued restrictions. We would like to ask for your support in doing this to ensure that we keep everyone healthy!

1. When you arrive in the parking lot for an appointment or to pick up supplies we ask that you still call us at 563-381-1838 first.  We will let you know when it is ok to enter the hospital. 

2. Per the CDC recommendations we will ask that you wear a mask while in the building, and please allow space between yourself and others.

3. We would like to limit the number of people in the building at a time.  Please plan for one adult per pet to come into the building. 

If you would prefer that we continue carside service we will gladly do so.  Just let us know if this is something that you would prefer, and we will gladly do what we can to ensure you a safe and comfortable visit. 

Thank you for your continued support and patience during this past year.  We look forward to being able to see you all!

  • Annie H
    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

    Hi-I'm Amanda!  I was ten when my life truly started. I arrived home from a friend’s house one weekend to find a tiny, white fluff ball in my room. That little fluff ball was my very first dog and I named her 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 like every other child, 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 and won a first place ribbon at our very first show. Due to behavioral issues, we had to retire early, but she has quite the collection of ribbons and received many titles.

  • Shelby F
    Veterinary Receptionist

    I am a young and ambitious girl that puts all her heart into what she does. Over the years I have tried many things. A career in retail, communications, and IT work. All of which I was good at and learned to do very well, however these were not positions that made me feel whole. It wasn’t until recently that I found where my heart and presence belong-a career in which I feel as though I am doing something that matters and makes a difference.

  • Sara S
    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.
