We're pleased to offer the following services at Lake Mills Veterinary Clinic:
We have the ability to produce quick and accurate blood results when your pet is sick by using our in-house blood chemistry and complete blood count analyzers. The results can indicate if your pet has metabolic diseases such as kidney, liver disease, or if your pet is anemic or has an infection.
Our in-house laboratory is used to perform urinalysis, cytologies, and parasite testing. We also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations.
We use gas anesthesia for surgeries and dental cleanings to provide a safe and painless sleep for your pet. A Certified Veterinary Technician will monitor your pet using heart and respiratory monitors while the doctor performs the surgery. All animals are placed on a heated blanket to maintain body temperature and are moved to a heated kennel or cage for their recovery.
A Certified Veterinary Technician performs routine cleanings which include scaling and polishing the teeth. A doctor will perform a complete oral exam, including evaluating dental readiographs, and extract teeth and perform gum surgery where needed.
Our on-site, digital X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders.
Internal medicine consults
We offer referrals to internal medicine specialists who perform ultrasounds, endoscopic procedures, and echocardiography to help us with the diagnosis of more complicated cases. In some cases, we work with traveling services who perform these diagnostics at our clinic.
We provide ECG services on-site as well as consultations with cardiology specialists.
Oncology, Ophthalmology, and Orthopedic Referral Services
We work with highly skilled, board-certified veterinarians in specialized fields such as ophthalmology, oncology and orthopedic surgery, in order to provide the most comprehensive range of care available for your pet.
We offer microchip identification.
Individualized Flea, Tick, Intestinal Parasite, and Heartworm Control Programs
We develop programs for the specific needs of your pet and your own particular environmental situation. We will review with you the best ways to control fleas and other ectoparasites in your house and on your pet.
We will provide guidance regarding your pet's nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance and performance.
We offer in-house behavior consultation as well as home visits and group classes. We can provide advice regarding the correction of problems such as excessive barking, chewing, spraying, scratching, digging, house soiling and aggression. For more information on our in-house puppy and dog training classes, and helpful training tips for dogs and cats, click on our Behavior tabs.
Cooperative Care Training
Many dogs and cats are afraid of clinical procedures, and react with avoidance or aggression. In addition to our overall low stress handling approach, we offer special appointments to help acclimate fearful patients to veterinary care. This might include getting comfortable with the clinic and staff, allowing handling for a physical exam, and even learning how to voluntarily participate in their care. Interested in helping your pet be more comfortable with veterinary care? Schedule a "touch training" visit today, or contact us to learn more.
If your pet is in immediate need of veterinary care and it is after hours, please contact the emergency clinics in the Madison and Waukesha areas. They are available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. See our EMERGENCY INFORMATION page for more details.
To allow ample time for all patients and scheduled surgical procedures, we operate by appointment. Emergency cases shall always receive top priority, which is why occasional appointment delay is inevitable. Please realize that we make a sincere attempt to see each client on time.
For your convenience, "drop-off" appointments are sometimes available for sick pets. A "drop off" means you could bring your pet at the time that works best for you and leave him/her with us for a couple of hours. Usually we will ask you to drop off sometime in the morning so our doctors can examine the patient between appointments or at the time purposely reserved for admitted patients. Once the doctor is done, she will give you a call to go over the diagnosis and to give you discharge instructions.
For the safety of all animals in our care, we require that all vaccinations be up to date. Even though we make every effort to make our patients feel comfortable during visits, they may be a little uneasy about new people, new surroundings and other pets. This is one of the reasons we ask you to use a leash or pet carrier at all times on the premises (including our parking lot and yard area).
We require full payment at the time that services are rendered. For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, debit cards, cash and personal checks. Although we do not offer payment plans, we offer financing in the form of CareCredit.
