Risius Family Veterinary Service has a long history (click here for all the details). Our main clinic is located in Eldridge, Iowa, and treats both small and large animals. Since about 2013, we’ve been operating a satellite large animal facility in Maquoketa, Iowa, in cooperation with Dr. Yonda, a long-time Maquoketa veterinarian specializing in bovine embryo-transfer.
Dr. Mike Slattery and Dr. Tyler Trenkamp are the two main veterinarians you may encounter from the Maquoketa office of Risius Family Veterinary Service. Stacie, the office manager of the Maquoketa Clinic, keeps the doctors on task, and Evan, Jake, and Marvin help the veterinarians when working cattle.
The Maquoketa facility focuses primarily on the care of production animals, with an emphasis on beef cattle production and medicine. Services include, but are not limited to, herd health and vaccination, reproduction and ultrasound, surgery, lameness management, and full service after-hours emergency care. The crew in Maquoketa also services the local sale barn, Maquoketa Livestock Sales, and is especially adept at processing cattle. Facilities include a haul-in clinic, two portable ForMost chutes, one of which is hydraulic, and access to a facility for processing cattle by the pot-load.
