The Wolf River Veterinary Clinic is dedicated to servicing your pet needs. Our goal is to provide compassionate and competent care for your pet. We strive to protect and nourish the special bond that exists between a pet and it's owner and/or family. Since all of the employees of our clinic have numerous pets themselves, we deeply value the importance of animals in our lives and we strive to reflect this in the care of our client's animals.
Wolf River Veterinary Clinic will be offering 10% off all microchips throughout the month of June!
It only takes a few seconds for your pet to be lost forever, like when you're busy with other things and she slips out the front door to take off after a squirrel. The experience is so common that the American Humane Society estimates one in three pets will get lost at some point in her lifetime. That's over 10 million pets every year who can't find their way home. In many cases, it's because the pet didn't have proper identification. Even a collar with current contact information on it can catch on a fence or come off by the pet's own force.
What is a Pet Microchip?
Even though June is National Microchip Month, people often have misconceptions about what a microchip is and what it can do. A microchip is about the same size as a grain of rice. When a veterinarian or someone from your local Animal Control scans your pet, the information contained on the microchip appears on a computer screen. This typically includes the pet's name, your name, and your current contact information. This makes it possible to contact you to let you know that your pet has been located.
A microchip is not the same thing as a Global Positioning System (GPS). That means you can't rely on it to let you know where your pet is if he gets away from you. It's also essential to register your microchip and keep your contact information updated. There is nothing sadder than discovering a pet has a microchip and then not being able to reach the owner due to it containing invalid details.
Schedule Your Pet's Microchip Appointment Today
The procedure to get a microchip is fast, inexpensive, and painless at Wolf River Veterinary Clinic. Our veterinarian inserts the tiny device in a flap of skin under your dog or cat's shoulder blade. It's over in seconds and your pet won't feel any more discomfort than she does with a typical shot. Although a microchip isn't an absolute guarantee you will be reunited with your lost pet, it increases the odds dramatically. It's the least you can do for your best friend.
To help foster a more respectful attitude towards animals and encourage people to honor their responsibilities towards them, In Defense of Animals (IDA) has declared May to be Responsible Animal Guardian Month. Having a respectful attitude towards our pets starts with not referring to ourselves as their owners. This word makes a pet our property while the word guardian means that we are responsible for their well-being for a lifetime.
Goals of the Guardian Campaign
IDA hopes to accomplish two major things during the month of May. First, the organization wants to encourage responsible and loving behavior from people who are already pet guardians. This means committing to caring for the pet's physical and social needs in addition to forming a deep bond with the animal. The following are just some of the ways you can be a responsible pet guardian:
We adopted our furry boy Driver from the WRVC and have continued seeing them for several years. Every member of the staff takes fantastic care of all their furry customers and their human family members. Whether it is a routine check up or an emergent call about a doggy falling down the stairs, they care deeply and provide excellent care. And, a follow up call to make sure everyone is doing great is greatly appreciated. So thankful for this amazing clinic and staff.
The whole staff is just a wonderful group of people. The follow up calls were unexpected but very much appreciated. We switched all 3 of our dogs to them. We started out going there as an emergency and continued going because of their care and concern for the pets they care for. Thank you
Thank you for wonderful and caring staff. A special thank you for all Dr. Ziegler did for us as we put our beloved dog, Jett down. He answered all our questions (even the ones we asked more than once) and reassured us in our decision.
The WRVC is special to me, not only because of it's staff of professionals, but because of the clinic's community involvement. To the staff animal care and welfare are part of who they are.
Dr. Jim Zeigler is the best. Honest, informative, trustworthy. I have stayed with him even after moving back to Appleton because of my faith in him.
The staff at Wolf River are amazing! A year ago , almost to the date, Dr Ziegler, removed a 10 pound splenic tumor from our Golden Retriever. Everyone at the clinic was so kind, caring and understanding through this very difficult time. We were faced with a very difficult decision, to have the surgery or not, and the staff was so compassionate and forthcoming. Our dog received excellent care and we were continually update on his progress. The staff also worked with our local vet as the work she had done and the follow up care needed. Thank you again and I would highly recommend to all my friends and family.
The staff is so wonderful with our baby. They are kind and slow with her, because she is timid. She stayed for several days when we were out of town. I felt so much better knowing she was a a vet. She came home with an awsome report card! Next time she was in the staff remembered her and she loved all over them. Good people with a heart for the care of my pup.
Love Love Love the clinic. Thank you for fixing our Chipper. Would recommend them to anyone.
Hats off to the entire staff for the excellent care of Bruna after her recent surgery.
Very fortunate to have them in New London.
They ALL treat you like family.
