Muscatine Veterinary Hospital was founded in 1954 by Dr. Barrington, who was soon joined by Dr. Longtin and Dr. Fick. They moved to our current location in 1967.
Originally, we serviced both large and small animals but in the early 2000’s the clinic transitioned to small animal services only as the community needs changed.
Over the years several doctors have joined the practice as others have retired.
We are grateful to have such a long history of skilled professionals to our name.
