Office Hours

Main Content

We're pleased to offer the following services at  Northwoods Animal Hospital:


To allow ample time for all patients and scheduled surgical procedures, we operate primarily 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 available. 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 in between appointments or at the time purposely reserved for admitted patients.

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 restrain your pet. We recommend that animals be placed on a leash or in pet carriers before entering the waiting room.


Please call   (715) 388-7611


Dental Cleaning Dental disease is the most common problem our pets face!  The most common problem is plaque or dental tartar.  Dental calculus (tartar) is composed of various mineral salts, organic material and food particles.  In the early stages of accumulation, the material is soft (plaque), but it later hardens and adheres to the teeth.  Continual accumulation causes inflammation of the gums and eventual recession of the gums and loose teeth.  The breath becomes very odorous and the mouth becomes a dangerous source of infection.

Ophthalmic Surgery Dr. Theuerkauf specializes in  various eye procedures and ocular surgeries including cherry eye repair, v-plasy procedure, entropion surgery and corneal gridding. His years of experience, combined with continually keeping up-to-date on procedures through continuing education, will help keep your pets eyes healthy and pain free!

Orthopedic Surgery Dr. Hayman has a special interest in orthopedic medicine and has performed hundreds of ACL (anterior cruciate ligament tear), patellar and fracture surgeries.  His years of experience, combined with continually keeping up-to-date on procedures through continuing education, will give your pet the best possible surgical care in the area!

Soft Tissue Surgery All of our veterinarians are qualified to do numerous types of soft tissue surgeries.  We pride ourselves on successful outcomes, quality care and safe anesthesia monitored with progressive medicine.
