When you are looking for a veterinary clinic you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service. We at Healthy Pet Veterinary Clinic have assembled an expert team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible healthcare for your pet. Call 608-294-9494 to schedule an appointment and we will find a time that is convenient for you. Depending on the age and overall health history of your pet, you should bring your pet to see one of our veterinarians once a year for a preventative health exam. Senior pets (over 8-10 years old for a dog or cat), or pets that have ongoing medical problems, should be seen every six months to catch any changes in their health that you might not be able to detect on your own.
Our computerized appointment and records management system allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our client care team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. To request an appointment you can call us at 608-294-9494, email us or even schedule your appointment completely online by clicking here.
If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us at 608-294-9494 so we can assess the situation and refer you to an emergency clinic if needed. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you with your particular emergency.
At Healthy Pet Veterinary Clinic, we can care for many types of pets:
Bring in any medical history you have of your pet when you come to our vet clinic. It's best to keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts. If you keep a journal or any medical records separate from your veterinarian, share it with our team. If not, let us know everything that you think will be important. We can work with whatever information you have.
During your appointment, you will be greeted by one of our staff who will ask you questions about why your pet is visiting us and get a history of symptoms and behaviors you have seen. Your veterinarian will then do a head to tail examination of your pet including checking their pulse, respiration, temperature, and overall condition. You will have ample time to talk with the veterinarian about your concerns and observations of your pet's behavior. Your veterinarian will discuss treatment options, demonstrate how to perform any treatments that you may need to do at home and answer any questions you may have before you leave. Most often one of our staff will call to check on your pet's condition a few days after your appointment and answer any additional questions you may have.
In some circumstances, our veterinarians will refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine, ophthalmology, orthopedics or oncology. Rest assured that whatever problems may arise, our caring and competent staff will work as hard as possible to diagnose and treat any illness.
