What to Expect

puppy1.png When you are looking for a veterinary care clinic you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service.  We at The Riverdale Veterinary Clinic in Muscoda WI have assembled an expert team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible healthcare for your pet.  We have a state of the art veterinary facility which is clean, comfortable, and efficient.  Call 608-739-3123 to schedule an appointment or farm visit and we will find a time that is convenient for you.

Once a year, you should take your pet in for a check-up. Both small animals and horses should see the veterinarian yearly. This appointment will include a full physical exam and consultation regarding any needed follow-up care.  H. Clay Dean will check the health of your animal from head to tail, and you will be very happy you came to The Riverdale Veterinary Clinic for service.

During wellness visits, the veterinarians at our practice will work with you to decide what vaccinations are necessary for your dog, cat, or horse. Deworming, heartworm prevention, flea & tick prevention, nutrition, and juvenile/elderly care will all be discussed at your appointment.  

If you bring a sick or injured animal to our clinic, a full medical work-up will be performed. Physical examination, bloodwork, x-rays, or other pertinent information will be collected. Hospitalization is possible for both small or large animal patients when necessary.

Bring in any medical history you have of your animal when you come to our vet clinic.  It's best to keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts.  If you have something like this, share it with our team.  If not, let us know everything that you think will be important.  H. Clay Dean can work with whatever information you have. 

In some circumstances, our Dean will refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine or surgery. 

If one of our qualified veterinarians is visiting your farm, you can expect them to walk you through the process thoroughly. Have your animal caught and ready for examination or treatment when the doctor arrives. We strive to make it to your farm at the scheduled time or call with any delays beforehand. If x-rays or invasive treatments need to be performed, you may be asked to schedule an in-clinic appointment. 

A chute or headlock is necessary to properly restrain cattle for treatment. If you do not have this type of facility, we do! Our chute can be set up in the clinic or brought to your farm for a small rental fee.
