Our Response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Due to concerns surrounding the spread of the Coronavirus and the number of people that can be gathered in a confined space, beginning Monday March 23rd we will only be scheduling appointments for pets who are having medical issues.  We expect these restrictions to be in place for some time.  

Also, our hours of operation are changing. Beginning Monday March 30th we will be open:

Monday - Friday 9am-5pm and Closed on Saturday & Sunday

We will see your pet if they are not feeling well, are injured, has a medical issue or needs a rabies vaccine. Call us if you have any questions.

Phone: 608-294-9494 and email: [email protected]  

We ask that our client's DO NOT come into the clinic if you are feeling ill, have a constant cough or have a fever.  

If you have concerns about potential exposure, call us at 608-294-9494.  If your pet needs to see us, we can get your pet from your car and bring them into the clinic.  The doctor will then phone you to get more information about your pet's medical issue.  

If you need medications or food and are concerned about potential exposure call us at 608-294-9494, we can take payment over the phone and we will be happy to bring items out to your car.

  • "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."
