Our Team

Our caring and compassionate veterinary care team!

Tri-Vet Associates is a mixed animal veterinary clinic, with offices in Farley, Dyersville, and Holy Cross. We cover a large area from Dubuque, to Manchester and Guttenburg, to Cascade. Our nine doctors and support staff provide veterinary services to the large and small animals of the surrounding area.
In 1979 Drs. Chapman, Goerdt and Rahe established a clinic in Farley. During those early years, our practice was almost exclusively farm animals. Our practice has grown and changed since then. Now, a significant percentage of our practice is pets. Today five of our doctors focus on large animals, either traveling the countryside or providing care for cattle hauled into our facility. Three of our doctors focus on both large and small animals, also traveling the countryside as well as caring for dogs, cats, and pocket pets in our Farley and Dyersville offices.
The Farley office is our main clinic. In Farley, the large animal area has pens and chutes for working cattle, a tilt table, facilities capable of handling bulls, and cattle surgery areas. The clinic also has small animal facilities that house a state of the art surgery room, medicine treatment room, new spacious dog runs and cat areas, and comfortable exam rooms. Also in Farley is a bacteriology lab, conference room, and doctor’s reference library. The Dyersville office was built in 1998 to accommodate dogs, cats, and pocket pets, although many large animal products are sold through the office. The clinic contains a spacious surgery area, medicine treatment room, comfortable dog runs, and a calm cat boarding area. The Holy Cross office serves as a satellite clinic and stocks large animal supplies for producers in the Holy Cross area.
