I have taken my cat to MVC for 6 years now and always found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The prices are a little higher than another vet in town but not outrageous. I would recommend them

After having the MVC tend to our animals in the past, we have removed them as our Vet. Not only are medicines not in stock, but the Dr. either doesn't like her job or has never learned the polite way to talk to the public or employees. Make sure you don't show up 10 min early or she'll make you wait 10 min after your appointment. Forforbid you have an emergency, if she isn't feeling it, you aren't getting in.

Prices are very high and only basic equipment is available.

Choose your Vet wisely.

I also had a few bad experiences with Maquoketa Vet Clinic. I won't go into lengthy details, however the last straw was when I felt one of my dogs needed medical attention, like ASAP, for a growth that we found on the outside of his skin. We had no idea what it was, but it definitely was bothering our pet, and it looked dangerous. It was a weekend when we found the growth on him. I called on Monday and told them that I really needed him to be seen as soon as possible. The receptionist said that the vet had clinic's today and tomorrow, so the soonest I could come in would be Wed. I explained that it might be considered an emergency, but still I was told Wednesday was the soonest day I could come in. I then called another vet in the area, and was gotten in right away that day. It was found to be a tumor that needed to be removed. The veterinarian did surgery on him that day, and he was home to recover by the evening. I had never been to this veterinarian's office, but he took the time to care for my dog, to remove a tumor, and kept him until 5:30, when I then was able to come and take him home. At that point, I was done with them Maquoketa Vet Clinic. You bend the rules or you call another vet, to get one of your patient taken care of. You don't just leave a person hanging, fearing for their pet's health!

Thanks to the staff at the clinic we still have our cat MoMo. He had a 15% chance of living & through alot of work on our part & terrific direction from the staff MoMo is 100% well. In addition we have 7 dogs (4 adult & 3 puppies) that all receive caring & compassionate treatment from the staff at the clinic. The prices are reasonable & our babies love to go there.

I would not recommend taking your pet to see Dr. Kallenberger. My regular vet, Dr. Becker, was out of town the day my cat had a urinary problem so I called Maquoketa Veterinary Clinic and scheduled an appointment with the receptionist. Since I had to work that morning, my husband dropped off our cat. When I called in, I told the receptionist that I wanted to talk to the vet when she examined my cat and before doing any kind of procedure or tests. About an hour and half after my husband dropped off the cat, I called to see when the vet was going to look at my cat. The receptionist said they had catheterized my cat and were spinning down his urine. At that point I had not spoken to Dr. Kallenberger to okay any procedure let alone give my cat anesthetic. I then asked to speak to the vet and was told my cat did not have any kind of urinary problem. Later that evening my cat died. I believe that my cat died because of the anesthesia. This vet did not speak to myself or my husband to get a history of my cat??s illnesses or allergies. I also was not informed about the risks of anesthesia. I feel Dr. Kallenberger acted irresponsibly and I would look elsewhere for pet care. I would recommend Dr Becker in Maquoketa or Dr. Riley at PetMed in Dubuque
