Congrats to all our 4H and FFA youth at the Green County fair. Thank you for watching my assistants (my sons Eli and Oliver) while I performed my fair vet duties. They enjoyed the fair and your animals. Life can now get back to normal for all the parents! For those that didn’t do as well as they liked. Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly. – Langston Hughes
We are seeing pets with fleas. So please remember to treat all of your pets with monthly flea treatment to keep the nasty little things off your pets and out of your house!! We recommend Vectra 3D or Nexgard for dogs and Frontline plus or Vectra for cats.
Happy 4th of July, Hopefully everyone has a good time. Remember to keep your pets safe during fire works, and they should be on a leash when outside at all times in case a fire work is let off. Also if you’re pet has anxiety over the loud noises give us a call we have several tools that may help. Have a happy 4th!!!
Shared by Bobbi Kastner Florence Precious’ 20th birthday, we want to say thank you for all the excellent medical care your staff has provided to us since we moved to the area in 1990! Here is a recent picture of the birthday girl!
Check your labels. Peanut butter is used frequently to “help the medicine go down”. NO XYLITOL!
A good reminder from Brodhead PD. It is just going to get warmer smile emoticon
Below are pictures of a calf that we did 6 laser treatments on for septic arthritis. The first picture was before we star, ted treatments and the last picture was the day of the 6th treatment. We completed these treatments between May 11 and May 21.
Have a good Memorial Day, everyone! We will be closed on Monday, May 25th for the holiday. In honor of Memorial Day, did you know about Sargent Reckless from the Korean War?
Continuing information for Dog Bite Prevention Week:
It’s national Dog bite Prevention Week! Learning to “read” a dog’s body language and respecting their space can go a long way to preventing bites. Not every wagging tail is a good one!
Livestock Health Alert The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection is actively monitoring the current outbreaks of equine herpesvirus myeloencephalopathy (EHM), the neurologic form of equine herpesvirus-1 (EHV-1) in neighboring states. While we have no reported cases in Wisconsin at this time, we are aware of several upcoming shows taking place about which horse owners should be aware if they planned to visit these shows. EHV-1 has bee. n detected in Illinois and Iowa after some of those horses attended a show and returned to their home barns. Some of these horses have been euthanized, but others are being treated for the disease. Equine herpesvirus is a reportable disease in Wisconsin. Veterinarians should contact the Department when they detect the disease in a client’s horse. Show organizers and show veterinarians should also be aware that horses being imported into Wisconsin are required to have a current Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI) and a negative EIA test. Detailed requirements can be found at datcp.wi.gov
Now is the time to get those spring shots for you horses. It takes 2 weeks for your horse to respond to the vaccine and the miserable mosquitoes may star, t hatching by then. Please get them protected by vaccinating for eastern & western encephalitis, west nile, and tetanus as a bare minimum. Rhinopneumonitis and equine herpes is highly recommended for horses that commonly visit with other horses off your farm. Why have a BVMC veterinarian vaccinate your horse instead of doi. ng it yourself? When a veterinarian vaccinates your horse the vaccination manufacture will cover and investigate any vaccine adverse reaction, but they will not if you personally vaccinate your horse. It is also a good time to ask your veterinarian any questions about your horse, have their teeth checked, and sometimes your veterinarian sees things that you may have overlooked. As a reminder, WI COGGINS ARE NOW GOOD FOR A FULL YEAR FROM THE DATE OF THE BLOOD COLLECTION, instead of just a calendar year.
Schotzie hurt her back over the weekend. She received her first laser treatment today.
This is a map of heartworm in 2013. Its that time of year to get your pet protected!
We are excited to announce that we now offer digital dental radiographs.
We are so happy with your facilities. Your staff is so amazing. We brought in Baxter ( 9 1/2 year old Chocolate Lab) and. Bella ( 19 week old Great Dane/Bull Mastiff) for their checkups. And Dr. Emily Dahlgran was awesome. She did their shots/blood drawn so fast, our dogs didn’t even have time to get worked up. I have now named Dr. Dahlgran. .Dr. Mosquito. She is so fast and didn’t cause them any stress. Also the assistant that came in to help with Baxter’s blood being drawn, was amazing too. We have nothing but nice things to say about your place. THANK YOU for treating our furry kids so well. Terry and Jana McKinney
I took my cat in for a simple procedure. On the way, my older car lost a piece. I know NOTHING about machinery. Dr. Duem. ler graciously diagnosed my car (I could drive home!) while Dr. Melvin took care of my cat. I am SO happy I found this clinic. Kindness, humanity and service are rare – but are found in abundance here. Five star, s and a special Thank You to the staff of Brodhead Veterinary Medical Center!.
