About us

Who We Are

Krichel Animal Hospital is a full service veterinary clinic established in Keokuk in 1932, by the late Dr. J.H. Krichel, Sr.

Dr. Krichel remained active in practice until 1980, having practiced veterinary medicine for a total of 64 years. The veterinary profession was his life, and we strive to continue the tradition and reputation he established. We look forward to showing you his tradition with the help of our dedicated, knowledgeable, and skilled staff.
