Dr. Huck

A native of Keota and a 2008 graduate of Keota High School, Dr. Erin Huck recently moved back home after having worked at a mixed animal practice in Keosauqua, Iowa for five years. Prior to that, she studied Animal Science at Iowa State University, where she also earned her DVM in 2016.

Dr. Huck is a life-long animal lover. Her furry family consists of three dogs – Aspen (a hound mix), Trigger (a lab mix), and Pickles (a Bernese Mountain dog) – and one cat, Sophie, who has been with her since her undergraduate days.

She’s also a proud mom to Joseph, who clearly loves growing up around animals and very much enjoys time on the farm, riding tractors, and watching the cows. When she’s not working, Dr. Huck loves to hike, camp, and spend quality with her family.

Katlin

Veterinary Technician

Growing up, Katlin split her time between Fairfield, where she lived with her father, and her mother’s home in Iowa City. In high school, she worked as a kennel attendant. After graduation, and having moved to the area with her husband, Adam, she attended Northeast Iowa Community College in the hopes of becoming a large animal veterinary technician. Then a position at our clinic came open and she discovered her love for animal companion care as well.

Katlin and Adam are proud dog parents to Arrow, a labradoodle, and Milo, a border collie cross. These two handsome boys would play fetch and run all day long if it were up to them. In her spare time, Katlin enjoys spending time with her daughter and playing outside with the dogs. She also likes helping her in-laws with their growing llama herd.
