Bringing your pet to Grantsburg Animal Hospital and Wild River Vet Clinic for a physical exam is crucial to their health. We offer nose-to-tail physical examinations so that we can detect any potential health risks early. There are many health problems that can be avoided through regular physical exams. For our young patients, we recommend a wellness exam every 12 months and for geriatric patients, or those with chronic conditions, we recommend a physical exam every 6 months. If you notice any irregularities with your pet, take detailed notes don’t wait, call to schedule an appointment with Grantsburg Animal Hospital or Wild River Veterinary Clinic for a physical exam.
We accept new patients. Puppies, kittens, and newly adopted adult pet care is welcomed. The staff at our clinics love meeting new puppies, kittens, and newly adopted pets too. We take the time to sit down and provide education and guidance on how to care for your new pet and answer any questions that you have. Our clinics have partnerships with some of the local humane societies and rescue groups to continue care once pets are in their forever home.
Many of the diseases that can affect dogs and cats are preventable through proper pet vaccinations. Starting your pet on the right schedule early is one of the keys to a long and healthy life. Vaccine schedules are individualized for each pet’s needs, please feel free to speak to our veterinary staff to discuss which vaccines are right for your pet.
Routine and advanced diagnostics are important tools that help us to identify underlying disease processes early. At Grantsburg Animal Hospital and Wild River Veterinary Clinic, we offer a full in-house laboratory for immediate interpretation or send out laboratory diagnostics for additional or cost-effective testing. We have in-house urine, stool testing, SNAP heartworm and tick, feline rotaviruses, and giardia tests. Digital X-rays provide valuable information for multiple body systems to aid in diagnosis.
We believe that it is much easier to prevent diseases than it is to treat them. We also believe that every patient is an individual and has a unique set of circumstances that may influence us in what their specific preventative care needs might be. Factors that we may consider include breed, age, lifestyle, health status, diet, reproductive status, and even client preference. Medicine is not a “one size fits all” practice. As such, each patient will receive a tailored approach to best meet his or her preventative care needs. Our clinics carry Heartworm prevention, flea and tick prevention, as well as different deworming treatments. We have additional options on our online store to cater to client preferences or patients’ needs for items we don’t have in stock.
Nutrition plays a critical role in the overall health and well-being of your pet. Your pet’s nutritional needs may change with age, activity level, and breed. At Grantsburg Animal Hospital and Wild River Veterinary Clinic, we focus on nutritional guidance based on patient needs and client preferences. We support a variety of approaches to nutrition. Specially formulated diets can assist in the management of various medical conditions like urinary disease and obesity. The veterinarian will work closely with you to find the right food and the right intake amount for your pet. We offer prescription diets in-house or on our online store.
