About Our Hospital


The Rock Island Animal Hospital is a walk-in veterinary clinic. The practice was founded many years ago in the late 1940′s. Dr. Richard Coster purchased the practice in 1960 and was joined by Dr. Larry Tadlock in 1971. Dr. Coster retired in May of 2004, and Dr. Tadlock carried on the practice. In June of 2004, Dr. Jill Rigg joined the Rock Island Animal Hospital. In February of 2010, Dr. E. Narske took over for Dr. Tadlock.

The staff of the Rock Island Animal Hospital are dedicated to providing excellence in animal care while offering the latest and innovated veterinary services. Our staff members are trained to provide care in a thorough, efficient and timely manner, employing their natural kind and loving attitude toward all of the patients and their owners. We know how important your pet is to you because we are all pet owners and animal lovers, too.

Local, regional or university referrals are available for those medical or surgical procedures that require special expertise.
