Preventative Care & Routine Wellness

Prevention is the best medicine! Just as eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and having regular physicals with our own doctors helps to keep us healthy. Preventative health care for your pets helps you and your pets live long, healthy, happy lives together. We recommend annual wellness visits for your pet. In addition to a comprehensive physical exam and annual vaccinations, we discuss heartworm prevention, flea and tick control, dental health, routine lab work, and nutrition to achieve the best health and well-being for your pet.

Nutrition

Good nutrition enhances your pet’s quality and quantity of life, and it is essential for optimal animal care. At Badger Veterinary Hospital, we believe that precise nutrition has a significant impact on the health and well-being of all pets by playing a fundamental role in the prevention and treatment of disease.  

Your dog or cat’s nutritional needs vary depending on breed, age, and lifestyle. Your pet will need a different formula as a puppy or kitten, than as an adult dog or cat, and also for their senior years. Understanding basic pet nutritional needs can help you choose a high-quality diet that will support optimal growth and health throughout your pet’s lifetime.

When searching for information about nutrition many of us go right to the internet. The information is readily available and easy to find with just a few clicks of a button. There is a lot of great information out there but there is also a lot of misinformation out there and a lot of different opinions. Listed below are some of the sites that we recommend looking at when trying to decide what is best to feed your pet.

The staff at Badger Veterinary Hospital is always here to answer any questions that you may have. We are happy to be able to provide nutritional consults with one of our Certified Veterinary Technicians. Just give us a call or send us an e-mail and we will be happy to help you choose a diet that is right for you and your furry family member. We can also help you set up a diet plan for your pet if you are struggling with keeping them at an ideal weight.

At all 3 Badger Veterinary Hospital locations, we carry Royal Canin Prescription diets in-house. It is always a good idea to call our pharmacy a couple of days before you run out of your prescription food to make sure we have it in stock for you. We also have an online pharmacy that is available to you that offers a variety of high quality, nutritionally balanced prescription and over the counter diets. These diets available are all diets that our staff trust and feed to our own pets. When ordered online these diets can be delivered right to your door! 

Internal Medicine
Issues affecting organs such as the kidneys, liver, respiratory tract, nervous system, or the gastrointestinal tract go undetected by the human eye, yet usually, require prompt attention. Badger’s state-of-the-art technologies, equipment, and multi-disciplinary practitioners help detect and treat issues involving internal organs as early as possible.
Orthopedic Surgery

Like humans, our canine counterparts can tear their anterior cruciate ligament, also known as an ACL. This cruciate injury is one of the most common orthopedic complications seen in dogs, an injury that is painful, problematic, and requires surgical repair. Dr. Kevin Kreier regularly performs orthopedic repairs using the Arthrex Tightrope CCL technique and TPLO (tibial plateau leveling osteotomy) surgery. Other orthopedic surgeries such as fracture repairs are done on a case by case basis.

Dental Care
Dentistry is more than just cleaning teeth. A thorough oral exam is essential to identifying problems. Untreated dental disease can lead to pain, loss of teeth, and can be associated with a variety of other health problems. With routine dental exams, cleanings, and home-care, your pet’s overall health improves. Dental x-rays are available at our Cambridge and Beloit practices.

An in-hospital dental cleaning involves the following procedures:

  • General anesthesia, which is necessary in all cases for us to do a thorough dental exam and professional cleaning. Your pet will be continuously monitored during and after the procedure for the safest and most comfortable experience.
  • A complete dental exam will be performed.
  • Ultrasonic and hand scaling to remove plaque and tartar above and below the gum line.
  • Polishing to smooth the surface of the teeth after scaling.
  • Flushing to remove dislodged tartar, plaque, and bacteria from the mouth.
  • If it’s determined that an infected tooth requires extraction, or there is a problem with the gums that must be addressed, further oral surgery will be recommended.

A thorough dental chart is used to record the dental health of your pet and any procedures done during the dental cleaning. You will also receive before and after pictures of your pet’s teeth.

 

Diagnostics and Treatment
There may be occasions when a routine physical exam isn’t enough to determine why your pet isn’t in good health. Our comprehensive diagnostic tools and procdures provide detailed information so our team of doctors can efficiently and accurately diagnose and treat your pet.
Soft Tissue Surgery
Progressive issues and trauma can cause problems in your pets’ bones, joins, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and internal organs. After a thorough examination and/or less invasive treatment options have been exhausted, your veterinarian may opt for a surgical remedy for the best outcome for your pet.
Chiropractic Care
Animal chiropractic is simple: it’s a mechanical solution to a mechanical problem. It is a drug-free, natural choice of care for your pet. Along with regular veterinary care, chiropractic care can help restore normal range of motion in the spine and extremities. The result is decreased pain, improved movement, and a higher quality of life for our pet. Available at our Janesville and Cambridge locations.
