Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease has now been confirmed in Wisconsin as of August 2022.  There is a vaccine that can prevent this deadly disease and we have been providing that vaccine for some time to our rabbit patients.  If you would like your rabbit vaccinated to protect against Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease, call us at 

Beginning August 24th, 2022 in order for your rabbit to board with us they must have had the first dose of the Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Vaccine at least two weeks prior to checking-in for boarding.

Healthy Pet Is Accepting New Clients!

We are happy to announce that we are accepting new clients!  Because of the increased demand we have a new procedure when new clients call or message us online to set up their first appointment with us.  If we have never seen one of your pets, we will collect a Pre-Booking Deposit when your appointment is made in order to hold the spot in our schedule.  The pre-booking deposit will be the same as the cost of the examination that is scheduled for your pet.  On the day of the appointment, the amount of the pre-booking deposit will be applied to the total cost of the services and/or products received.  

In order to keep our schedule efficient and so that we can see the most patients possible, we require 24-hours notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment.  24-hours notice is required so we have the opportunity to offer care to other pets in medical need if you no longer need your appointment.  Failure to provide 24 hours notice to cancel or reschedule an appointment may result in loss of the Pre-Booking Deposit. 

Schedule completely online!

You will see a new widget in the bottom right corner of the homepage here with a new way for you to easily contact us.  The great part about this new utility is that there is no app to install and you can message us directly with your smartphone.  

Also, you can now send us a text to our landline phone number of 608-294-9494.  When you do this we will send you back link where you can access your own pet portal.  In the pet portal you can request records, refill medications or food prescriptions and also see vaccine expiration dates and your pet's medical record.  We understand that in our busy lives it's often easier to communicate online when you have time to respond and we encourage you to use this new feature!

  • "This clinic is very clean, friendly, and gentle. My Guinea Pig Bear had a tumor and they have worked hard to care for him and follow up to be sure he is healing well from surgery removal as well as be available to answer any questions I have.I was even able to set up an affordable payment plan for his medical bills. All in all a very trustworthy Vet Clinic."
