Wellness and Vaccines

A long, happy and healthy life

At Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon, we want your animal companion to enjoy a healthy life with you for as many years as possible. We believe the most important way to achieve this goal is by making a commitment to their ongoing wellness with annual visits. By bringing your pet in for regular examinations, you’ll allow our compassionate team to truly get to know you and your furry friend while also helping to protect him or her from common conditions that can affect companion animals. You’ll also give us the opportunity to identify and address potential health concerns early, before they have a chance to develop and worsen. Creating a positive, ongoing relationship with you and your pet allows our doctors and team to partner with you in managing your loved one’s care for many years to come. 

Wellness and Prevention

Our wellness services are comprehensive and thorough, because we know as loving pet parents you want to do everything in your power to keep your loved one healthy. You’ll start your visit with a friendly greeting and treats by our reception staff. An assistant will welcome you into your exam room and obtain a detailed history about your pet. The doctor will then examine your pet from nose to tail, looking for anything out of the ordinary. Depending on your furry friend’s individual needs and lifestyle we develop and implement a customized preventative care plan. This can include vaccines, parasite control, microchipping, laboratory testing, nutrition and weight management, or other diagnostics relevant to your companion. A certified veterinary technician will help to go over the doctor’s recommendations, answer any of your questions and then guide you once again to our reception staff for checkout or to schedule a recheck if needed.

Ongoing Health Monitoring

Annual examination visits along with routine wellness and senior health screening tests provide us with a moment in time of your loved one’s health status. This information can be compared from year to year to identify changes and allow for the earlier detection of illness. Our doctors and staff can then implement an individualized treatment and/or monitoring plan for your animal companion. With many disease processes, an early diagnosis and thus treatment can greatly improve the outcome and extend the quality of life for your pet. 

You and the doctors and staff at Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon want to see your furry family member enjoy many wonderful, healthy years. Please call us today to get started!

Nutrition

Nutritional Questions?

The truth?: the topics of nutrition and weight control can be confusing, even for the most seasoned pet parent. With so many different foods to choose from, figuring out how to compare diets and selecting the right food fit can be a challenge. Our team at Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon has experience in identifying the nutritional needs of each patient from youth to adulthood to senior. We can help to advise you on how much and how often you should be feeding your pet for optimum results. The Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon offers professional guidance on all of your nutritional questions to help keep your four-legged friend in shape. 

The Right Weight

Unfortunately, obesity is becoming increasingly common in our companion animals. A few extra pounds for a human may not be a big deal but, for a dog or cat, it can lead to serious health problems including diabetes, arthritis, and can even shorten your loved one’s life! At Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon, making sure that your beloved pet maintains a healthy weight is one of our top priorities. We can help by determining a weight range that would be ideal for your particular furry friend and then develop an individualized plan to help achieve that goal. Through things like screening for an underlying medical condition, diet changes, exercise and calorie control we’ll get your pet fit in no time!

Therapeutic Diets

At Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon, we offer prescription therapeutic diets for the nutritional management for a wide variety of disease processes in dogs and cats. These specific diets may improve the chances of your companion staying healthy and/or prolong their life expectancy with certain illnesses. Our doctors can help to determine if a therapeutic diet is right for your pet. 

Please don’t hesitate to give us a call with any nutrition questions. Our dedicated team would be happy to help your pet receive the very best nutrition. 

 

Allergy and Dermatology

Are you up all night with your pet’s itching?

Your furry friend can have many different ailments of the skin that result in itch causing licking and scratching, sometimes in the most severe way. You don’t want to see your pet suffer like that, and neither do we! That’s why Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon offers professional pet allergy and dermatology services. 

 Diagnosing the Problem

The first step toward helping your companion obtain relief is by identifying the condition he or she is experiencing. We may be able to diagnose your pet with just an examination, or in some cases further investigating with additional testing might be required. This may include blood work, food trials, and skin scrapings, cultures, and/or biopsies to help us get the answers we need to move forward with an appropriate treatment plan.

Some of the dermatological issues we can provide assistance with include:

  • Allergies (food and/or environmental)
  • Infections (acute or chronic)
  • Parasites
  • Hormonal disorders
  • Endocrine disorders
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Tumors/skin cancer

Developing a Treatment Plan

Depending on the situation, treatment for your pets skin condition may be as simple as a topical therapy or more complex requiring a combination of treatment methods. Allergies can be frustrating and may require a little more work to manage. Some allergies can be managed through lifestyle changes, such as an elimination food trial. Others may require a longer-term strategy like the administration of individualized allergy drops/injections. Once we understand what’s causing your pet’s itch and reactions, we will work toward a solution that will eliminate outbreaks as much as possible. Our recommendations will be based on your loved one’s specific needs.

Signs of a possible skin problem include:

  • Excessive scratching
  • Scabbing or flaking of the skin
  • Hot spots
  • Shedding more than usual
  • Biting, chewing or licking at the affected area
  • Bumps or lumps on or under the skin

If you notice any of these signs or symptoms, please contact the Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon to schedule an appointment. We can help your best friend live a more comfortable life. 

Diagnostics

Has there been a change in your pet’s behavior?  Are you concerned that an illness or injury may be to blame?

With our four-legged family members, disease, illness, or injury is not always obvious. Unfortunately, they can’t explain their symptoms or tell us when something is bothering them like we can when we see a doctor. Many animals are also able to hide symptoms of illness or injury for periods of time letting the condition continue to worsen. 

In cases such as these, combining the examination findings by the doctor with additional diagnostics allows us to conduct an in-depth evaluation of your pet’s health, both externally and internally. We rely on veterinary diagnostics to help obtain the answers we need and thus develop a treatment plan for your companion. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can greatly improve the chances of a positive outcome. Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon offers a wide range of diagnostic services to ensure that we always stay on top of your pet’s health.

In-House Laboratory

Our hospital features an on-site diagnostic laboratory, which allows us to run a wide variety of tests including bloodwork, urinalysis, fecal analysis and others for your pet in a fast and efficient manner. In many cases, we can have results within minutes. The ability to run tests in-house is especially beneficial for time sensitive critical cases and to streamline transfers when needed to a referral emergency and speciality hospital. We also partner with a larger outside laboratory which allows us to be able to run more advanced and specialty testing right here at Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon. Laboratory work is also available for routine health screenings as part of your pet’s wellness care. 

Advanced Imaging

In some instances, there is a requirement to go beyond your pet’s examination and/or labwork results to effectively assess your pet’s condition. That’s why we also offer digital radiography imaging services. Radiographs allow us to look inside your companion’s body and help to illuminate illness or injury and determine its severity. Images can be analyzed by our doctors in real-time and shared electronically with specialists if necessary. Based on radiographic imaging we can help to determine an appropriate treatment plan for your pet.

If your pet has been exhibiting a behavioral change, don’t take chances. Please call the Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon right away. 

Puppy Preschool

Sit, Stay, What? Too many ruined shoes? Too many accidents? Too much begging?

Puppy Preschool is the Answer!

Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon is proud to offer obedience classes with Puppy Preschool on Tuesday evenings! Each class runs for 6 consecutive weeks (skipping holidays) in the lobby of the hospital from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. The cost for the class is $ 115.00.

The intention of puppy class is to have puppies under 5 months of age gain social skills and learn basic obedience commands. It is very important for this age group to be well socialized as this heads off many behavior problems that develop throughout a pet’s life. Class size is kept small to allow you time with instructors for one on one training time. Puppies who attend Puppy Preschool love coming to the vet!

The class is unique to other puppy preschool classes. Instructors Kris, a certified veterinary technician, and Katie have a wealth of knowledge and practical experience working with animals. We combine the obedience aspect of training, but also give you a practical look at healthcare topics geared toward the puppies age and helpful behavior topics that you can use immediately to help you curb any undesirable habits that may be starting.

Each week, we teach a different obedience command and cover various health subjects. We go through numerous behavior concerns such as: housebreaking, barking, biting, jumping, playing games, and item protection/guarding.

At the end of each class, we encourage our furry family members to have some fun! Ending with puppy playtime allows your puppy to run and play with their classmates in a controlled setting.

Upcoming Classes 
Please note that all puppy classes are postponed until Jan 2021 due to Covid-19

To enroll in puppy call or if you have any questions, please call the Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon; ask for Kris or Katie

Behavioral Counseling

Is unwanted behavior creating frustration between you and your animal companion?

When your pet acts out, their behaviors can be unpleasant. Whether it’s a house training issue or something more serious, like aggression, inappropriate behavior can be stressful for everyone in the home. At Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon, our team is experienced in companion animal behavior and can provide the guidance you need to restore the loving bond between you and your pet.

Understanding the Problem

The first step to overcoming behavior issues in your animal companion is identifying the precise problem. Our doctors take steps to examine your pet and rule out any potential medical causes. Many illnesses or injuries can have symptoms that can be mistaken for inappropriate behavior. For example, a urinary tract infection can result in cats urinating outside of the litter box or dogs having urinary accidents inside the house. Correcting this underlying health issue may then result in a return to normal behavior for your pet.

If no underlying medical condition is found, the next step is discovering the true behavior issue affecting your pet. This is important because in many cases, a bigger problem may manifest itself in smaller episodes. For example, a history of destructive behavior when your pet is left alone may actually be a symptom of separation anxiety. Once an understanding of the inappropriate behavior has been achieved we can work together on an individualized behavior plan.

Some of the behavior problems we can provide assistance with include:

  • House training
  • Excessive barking
  • Jumping
  • Digging
  • Biting
  • Destructive behavior
  • Aggression
  • Fear/anxiety 

A Plan That Gets Results

Our doctors and team will work closely with you and your pet to address any unwanted behaviors with your animal companion. Whether it’s through positive reinforcement, rewards, training, medication or something else, we’ll work with you to develop a customized behavior plan to get results and restore peace to your home. We also have the ability to refer you to various behavioral trainers who offer in home consultations to augment the progress made in our clinic.

 Don’t let unwanted behavior break the bond between you and your furry companion. Please call the Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon to help you get back to enjoying the loving relationship you both deserve. 

Laser Therapy

Does your four-legged family member suffer from a chronic medical condition, like arthritis? Has a recent injury or surgery negatively impacted your companion’s lifestyle or quality of life? 

At Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon, we’re pleased to offer laser therapy as part of our comprehensive services to provide more treatment options for your companion. Our noninvasive therapy laser uses painless waves of light to trigger a natural response to treat areas of the body that are experiencing pain or trauma. With laser therapy, your loved one can enjoy decreased pain, enhanced mobility and shorter recovery periods. 

What is veterinary laser therapy?

Laser therapy is a painless, non-invasive form of treatment which stimulates the body’s natural healing and pain control response. It can be used as a solitary therapy or in combination with other treatment methods. Using a small, handheld device, our doctors or certified veterinary technicians apply a low level laser to a specific area on your pet, stimulating cellular function. Because laser therapy is not a medication or surgery, there are no harmful side effects.

What are the benefits of laser therapy?

  • Anti-Inflammation – Decreases swelling from bruising/inflammation
  • Anti-Pain – Blocks pain by decreasing nerve sensitivity
  • Accelerates Tissue Repair, Cell Growth and Nerve Function
  • Improves Circulation
  • Accelerates Healing and Reduces Scarring

What can laser therapy treat?

Laser therapy can be used to address a broad spectrum of conditions, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Disc Disease
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Degenerative Joint Disease
  • Sprains and Strains
  • Cranial Cruciate Ligament
  • Dental Problems
  • Chronic Pain and Inflammation
  • Dermatological Conditions/Wound Healing
  • Lick Granulomas

How many sessions will my pet need?

For some patients, positive results can be seen with just one session! Because every pet is unique and can respond differently to laser therapy, your loved one may require a more long-term strategy to achieve a desired outcome. Depending on your pet’s specific condition, its severity and other factors, treatment strategies vary. Our doctors at Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon can provide you with a customized treatment plan once we’ve had the opportunity to evaluate your companion’s situation.

If you think your pet could benefit from laser therapy, we invite you to reach out today. Call the Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon to get started! 

Surgery

Nervous about your pet’s upcoming surgery?

Bringing a beloved family member in for a surgical procedure is never easy. At Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon, we want you to know we understand your uneasiness, because we’re pet owners too. Our team makes the commitment to treat every pet like their own, ensuring that every procedure performed in our clinic is as stress-free as possible. You can feel confident that your loved one will be in excellent hands with us.

Pre-Surgical Care

Our process begins with preoperative screening including a physical examination and potential bloodwork or other diagnostic testing. This helps us to uncover and correct potential abnormalities, prepare a customized anesthetic plan, and reduce the risk of complications for your pet. We also pride ourselves on developing a treatment plan to keep your furry friend comfortable and pain-free — before, during and after surgery. 

Your Pet’s Surgery

From the moment you arrive, our dedicated team will help to keep you and your pet calm and relaxed. Any last-minute questions that arise will be answered to help ease your mind as we get your companion settled in and prepared for surgery. Once safely sedated, we will complete the procedure as efficiently as possible. Our surgical suite is outfitted with a CO2 surgical laser to offer your pet less pain, less bleeding, reduced risk of infection, and a quicker recovery time along with modern monitoring equipment which helps us track your pet’s vital signs and pain levels. As the doctor works, our dedicated support staff including an assistant and a certified veterinary technician will be present at all times, assisting with surgery and closely monitoring your pet. From a spay or neuter, to a more complex surgical procedure, your loved one’s surgery will always be our highest priority. 

Discharge and Post-Surgical Care

When surgery is complete, our team will gently relocate your pet to our safe, quiet recovery area which is separate for dogs and cats. Our staff will be there to offer comfort and reassurance to your loved one as the anesthesia begins to wear off. When you arrive to pick up your pet, we will provide and go over our written aftercare instructions, including a plan for pain management. We strive to ensure that your loved one recovers quickly and as comfortably as possible. 

Referral Services

If your pet requires an advanced or complicated surgical procedure, we have the ability to refer your animal companion to local board certified veterinary surgeons. This is to ensure the best surgical outcome and recovery for your pet. 

Surgery and anesthesia doesn’t have to be a source of anxiety, especially with the caring team at Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon. Please call us today and learn how we can help with all of your companion’s surgical care needs

Dental

Is an odor from your furry friends mouth making you shy away from kisses and close cuddles?

Foul breath isn’t something that all pet owners should learn to live with. This odor is likely a sign that your pet is in need of a dental checkup. Your pet’s mouth can become an oasis for dangerous bacteria. Without attention, bacteria can spread through the bloodstream and cause a number of other serious health problems. With the right support and an appropriate dental plan from our doctors at Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon, you can help to prevent dental disease, keeping your pet’s mouth healthy and happy.

The professional dentistry services at Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon offer both routine, preventative care to remove plaque and tartar, as well as advanced treatment for a variety of oral conditions. We include the use of safe, effective anesthesia and constant monitoring to ensure your animal companions safety throughout the procedure. Whether it’s time for an annual dental exam and cleaning, or your pet requires a tooth extraction, we are happy to assist in your pet’s dental needs. 

In addition to our professional dental care, we work closely with you year round to ensure a healthy mouth for your pet. For the biggest dental benefit, we recommend brushing their teeth at least three times a week, if not daily. Our experienced staff would be happy to offer teeth brushing demonstrations and give advice on approved dental health products you can also try. 

Some of the signs of dental disease in companion animals include, but are not limited to:

  • Bad breath
  • Excessive drooling
  • Dropping food
  • Sudden disinterest in chew toys
  • Loss of appetite
  • Swollen or painful face
  • Pawing at the mouth
  • Discolored, broken, loose or missing teeth
  • Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding

If your pet is exhibiting any of these signs, please call us to schedule an exam. At Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon we believe you deserve to have lots of close snuggles with your furry friend without oral odor.
