Risius Family Veterinary Service @ Eldridge
Risius Family Veterinary Service has a long history (click here for all the details). The clinic has been an Eldridge-based family business from the beginning. Over the years, the small hospital has grown to encompass 2 facilities, the original clinic in Eldridge, and now a satellite location in Maquoketa, Iowa. We offer both small animal medicine (primarily dogs and cats) and large animal medicine (mostly food animals with a focus on beef cattle; everything except horses). While the the majority of our small animal clients are in the Eldridge/Le Claire/Dewitt/Northern QC locale, our large animal doctors provide veterinary service to clients from northern Jackson County south to Aledo, IL and Columbus Junction.
The clinic in Eldridge is a mixed animal hospital, meaning we see both small animals and large (production) animals. Our small animal doctors see scheduled appointments for dogs and cats. Our small animal services include digital full-body x-rays, dental x-rays, dental cleanings & treatments, soft tissue surgery, basic orthopedic surgery, in-house lab services including blood panels and cytology, reference lab services to Idexx and Iowa State, preventative health care & vaccines, and typical internal medicine consultation and treatment services. We strive to offer individualized patient care, as no two pets have the same needs. You may encounter one of four doctors when you make an appointment with a dog or a cat; two are small-animal exclusive and two are mixed-animal practitioners who enjoy treating all species.
The large animal portion of the Eldridge clinic is serviced by four veterinarians, primarily, although the two doctors based in Maquoketa may also provide services to our Eldridge-based clients. Our large animal doctors specialize in herd health and disease prevention, pregnancy & reproduction, foot work, and various disease work-up. We have a small working facility on the north side of our clinic which can accommodate a stock trailer, and includes a tilt table useful for foot work. We also provide production animal ambulatory services in a wide radius around the Quad City region.
