Minocqua

Wellness Care

We believe annual wellness care is imperative to keeping your pet happy and healthy! Your pet’s health is important and preventive care is necessary. We recommend wellness exams, keeping your pets on a vaccination schedule, and working with us on all facets of wellness care.

During your annual physical exam, your veterinarian comprehensively examines your pet and discusses vaccinations and ongoing wellness. Just like you do wellness visits with your doctor, your pet must do the same. During these visits, our team will spend time examining your pet from nose to tail.

Diagnostics

Quicker diagnosis leads to quicker treatment. When your pet isn’t feeling their best, we’re able to call upon the information we gather from your pet’s annual visits and figure out what’s “off” from the baseline we’ve built for their health. Once we can determine the issue, our diagnostic team gets right to work!

Blood work and urinalysis serve multiple purposes, including diagnosing disease and determining the health of your pet. Yearly tests will check your pet’s organ functions and help define the general health of your pet, including potential problems that are often not visible during a physical exam. Obtaining baseline bloodwork and a urine sample when your pet is healthy provides invaluable baseline information that we can compare to whenever your pet is sick in the future. Regular testing also allows for early detection and monitoring for changes, especially as they age.

Vaccines

No single vaccine program will be ideal for every pet in every situation, and that’s why we will work on an individualized basis with you and your pet to make sure they are getting just what they need to remain healthy. Our team of doctors and staff are highly educated about veterinary vaccines, and we can offer you the best advice to help your pet live longer.

Our pets are faced with many deadly infectious diseases, and vaccines can help protect them. Over the years, vaccines against dangerous diseases have saved millions of pets and virtually eliminated some fatal diseases that were once common.

Ultrasounds

Although humans and animals are different in many ways, some advances in human medicine are also beneficial for veterinary patients. One of these advances, diagnostic ultrasound, has proven to be a powerful tool in veterinary medicine. Ultrasonography is a completely non-invasive, painless way to diagnose and evaluate many common diseases. As a practice, one of our goals is to offer state-of-the-art medicine and diagnostic testing, so we are pleased to offer ultrasound services as a means of providing a higher level of quality care to our patients.

Ultrasonography is a type of diagnostic technique that uses ultrasound waves to produce an imaging study. This means that when we perform ultrasonography, we can see internal images of the patient’s body. Unlike some other imaging studies, like x-rays, ultrasonography does not use radiation. Instead, ultrasonography uses high-frequency sound (ultrasound) waves to create a picture of what is inside your pet’s body. 

Radiology

A radiograph (X-ray) is a type of photograph that looks inside the body and reveals information that may not be discernible from the outside. Radiography can be used to evaluate your pet’s internal organs like the heart, lungs, and abdominal organs, as well as bones. When it comes to diagnosing your pet accurately, radiology can be an extremely valuable tool in our diagnostic arsenal.
Digital X-rays are routinely used to diagnose and examine broken bones, obstructions, arthritis, masses, and tumors. We use digital X-rays also to confirm pregnancies or detect ingested objects.

Dental

The average cat or dog needs a cleaning and polish every 18 months! Some even require it every year!
You can prevent dental issues for your pet. Prevent a plaque build-up by brushing their teeth daily and feeding them prescription dental food. Prevention works the best when started early to maintain clean teeth.

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.

We offer a variety of dental services from cleaning, polishes, extractions, and more. Please give our Minocqua location a call to find out more.

Boarding

Ease your concerns about leaving your pet behind while you’re away. Let our qualified staff take care of him or her. We will provide your dog or cat with a safe, comfortable, “home away from home” atmosphere. We are happy to accommodate any special care or needs your pet might have. Just let us know when you make the reservation.

We provide amenities such as clean bedding and food and water bowls but feel free to bring your own if you’d prefer. Toys and other personal items that are washable are welcome. We will administer any needed medication and follow your specified feeding regimen. Alternately, we can provide a high-quality diet and treats for no extra charge, although eating their own food tends to agree better with most boarded pets.

To keep all our patients as healthy as possible, we require pets that are boarding with us to have current rabies and distemper vaccinations, along with other species-specific vaccinations. Please call us for more information.

End-of-Life Care

We know saying goodbye to a beloved pet is never easy. As much as we love our pets, eventually, the time comes when we have to let them go.

We offer comprehensive pet end-of-life care in addition to cat and dog euthanasia services to best meet the needs of you and your pet. We are there for you every step of the way, ensuring and planning for a peaceful goodbye.

If you have any questions or concerns about end-of-life pet care, please don’t hesitate to give our Minocqua location a call. We will do everything we can to help you through this difficult time. 

Grooming

When you trust our animal hospital with grooming services, you can always expect your pet to receive quality, compassionate care. Whether your pet is just here for a quick bath, nail trim, anal gland expression, or more extensive treatment, such as a medicated bath, de-matting, ear cleaning, or a sanitary clip, our veterinary team will always treat your pet as one of their one. We also offer mild sedation (given at home before the appointment) for those fur-babies that stress easily. We strive to keep your pet as comfortable and relaxed as possible throughout the grooming appointment, and we’ll give you a call as soon as your pet is ready to be picked up.

Ophthalmic Surgery

Dr. Theuerkauf has a particular interest 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 pet’s eyes healthy and pain-free!

Orthopedic Surgery

Dr. Hayman has a particular 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!

VetStem uses a concentrated form of adult stem cells to treat traumatic and degenerative diseases, including bowed tendons, ligament injuries, osteoarthritis, and osteochondral defects in dogs and cats.

Ophthalmic Surgery

Just like people, animals can also suffer from eye complications that affect their day-to-day life. These conditions can include cataracts, glaucoma, uveitis, tumors of the eye, eyelid defects, dry eye, retinal degeneration, and corneal ulcers. Our veterinary ophthalmologist here at Northwoods Animal Hospital’s Eagle River location can provide pets with nearly all of the medical and surgical eye care that is available for humans while making sure they are comfortable and treated with the utmost care and compassion.

Soft Tissue Surgery

We perform many types of soft tissue surgeries at our clinic. Soft tissue surgeries are those that are not associated with bone. These surgeries can provide many benefits to pets. Examples of soft tissue surgery include growth and lump removals, laceration repair, abscess, wound repair, skin biopsies, and abdominal surgeries.

Probably the most common soft tissue surgery performed on pets is the removal of masses or lumps. Once removed and tested, most of these masses are benign (non-harmful); however, they are occasionally more serious. Early removal and accurate diagnosis of a lump are necessary to improve your pet’s outcome if the mass is cancerous.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cells are the body’s repair cells. They have the ability to divide and differentiate into many different types of cells based on where they are needed throughout the body. Stem cells can divide and turn into tissues such as skin, fat, muscle, bone, cartilage, and nerve, to name a few. They even possess the ability to replicate into organs such as the heart, liver, intestines, pancreas, etc.
