We had the great opportunity to visit your facility with our 3 year old cat named Josie on Sept 22nd when she was dehydrated and very ill. She was not eating or drinking and we thought she would die. Dr Cynthia Sweet administered IV fluids, examined her and provided an antibiotic and did a blood draw to see what was going on with her. The next day the blood work came back normal. On Sept 24th Dr Katie Reed again gave IV fluids and took an X-Ray and showed abnormalities in her stomach and intestine. We were provided with medicine to stimulate her appetite and anti-nausea medicine as she was still a very sick cat. Dr Reed called to check up on her the next day and we scheduled an appointment for Sept 26th. During that appt the x-ray showed she was returning to normal and the antibiotic was now working on whatever she had. More IV fluids to keep her going. Dr Reed followed up a few more times days later to check on her progress. We are so very happy with all of the staff and the cost was very reasonable. If your pet is not doing well, the staff here will take exceptional care and go above and beyond your expectations. Thank you to all the staff for saving our youngest cat of the family. Josie is back to normal thanks to all of you. Pat & Heather

Janesville Veterinary Clinic West
I had been going to janesville west/east for 3 years. I usually have quite a wait before being seen by the doctor everytime I came in. My last visit I waited 30 minutes and ended up seeing a different vet than I scheduled with. If I had an emergency which was twice they could not see me and told me to go to the emergency vet even when they were open. This was twice within the last year (2016). I recently came in for an exam and a vaccine and they did the exam and said they were done. They forgot to do the vaccine until I mentioned it. They also don't seem to keep very good notes. They didn't have on record or I guess possibly didn't even look at the record that my dog was on medication that they prescribed and refilled for her multiple times. They seem to recommend extensive treatment when it is not always necessary. For example they recommend that my three year old dog have her teeth cleaned. I work in the dental profession and honestly my dog has no staining, no heavy or moderate build up of calculus and my dog has healthy pink tissues.

Badger Veterinary is great. We needed to put our elderly dog to sleep, and we wanted a vet to come to our house instead of taking him and stressing him out. Being somewhat new to the area, we hadn't taken our dog to the vet here, but they agreed to come out for us even though he hadn't been a prior patient. The vet and his assistant were very kind and compassionate, and even took a few extra minutes to wait for another friend to be there. We'd made bacon for our dog as a last day treat, and they even fed some to him to make friends with him first.I would highly recommend them to anyone, and I will use them for all my other pet needs. They were kind and compassionate and professional.

WONDERFUL VET EXPERIENCE! Dr. Reed is understanding and caring. Definitely recommend this veterinary clinic.
Tips & Advices
Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
