Congratulations to last week's graduates from our double-header Family Dog Manners! Jaxson, Leo, Gus, Jax, Fury, Zora, and Hazel worked hard on leash manners, coming when called (even away from squirrels), leave it (including an open jar of peanut butter), and hanging around other dogs while staying calm, cool, and collected.

You probably already know this, but we are in the midst of a comprehensive remodel of our building. We’re adding exam rooms, expanding our space for surgery and laboratory work, creating an outdoor exam room, and generally updating our space. It's a really exciting project!

We’re hoping to be in our new space by early December.

When we’re done, it will mean a great experience with veterinary care for our patients and clients.

In the meantime, things can get a bit noisy.

We don’t like to startle our clients or our patients, so we wanted to let you know that it’s possible that the construction work will be louder on the day that your pet comes in for a visit. We are taking precautions to buffer our patients from noise and disruption while you are here with us, but we understand that some patients can be more stressed from these things than others.

If you are concerned about the effect of the construction on your pet’s experience with us, please get in touch and we’ll make sure to address your concerns. In some situations, it may be necessary to reschedule an appointment, but we can walk you through options before getting to that decision.

To get in touch, you can call 920.648.2421.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to create a veterinary clinic space that matches our expertise in low stress veterinary care.

It's Moving Day (week)! Please prepare to be patient with us as we try to efficiently locate our clinic temporarily into the new wing and the trailer outside. There may be some fluctuations in phone and internet service, and it may not be obvious at time where exactly we are on the property, but we are working hard to keep things calm and consistent for you. Please continue to call on arrival, and we'll continue to do occasional sweeps of the parking lot to find stray clients. Thanks!

We have some items in our lost and found please contact us if they are yours by Friday. See photos in comments

We're having some trouble with our phone and internet service at the moment, due to a Spectrum outage in our area. Calls are forwarded to a staff member's cell phone, so please be patient if you don't get through right away! If you're in the parking lot, please feel free to come knock on the door.

Is your dog a shy dog? Shy dogs may display caution in a wide variety of circumstances, such as to bark and run away when meeting a new person, or take a while to adjust to new furniture, or seem generally afraid of just about everything.

There are degrees of shyness: some shy dogs will have "global fearfulness"; others will display fear in very specific situations. The more you know about your dog's personality, the better job you will do with helping your dog in difficult situations, and training new skills to prevent problems in the future.

Did you know we offer a Shy Dog class? It's a short course in understanding fearful behavior, and working with dogs to help them become more comfortable and confident.

Training a shy dog helps you build your dog's confidence and skills over time, just like training any other dog.

Forcing a shy dog is never going to "fix" the dog, but you are likely to receive advice from many people telling you to do just that. Forcing shy dogs into terrifying situations will often cause them to "shut down" and seem "cured". This is called "flooding". Dogs (and people) who endure flooding generally react much more strongly, and usually aggressively, when faced with a similar situation in the future. Flooding is one of the fastest ways to provoke dogs to bite. Please be mindful of your dog's needs if you receive this kind of advice.

You can truly transform shy dogs from quaking wrecks to sweet, loving, dogs who enjoy toys, have dog friends, love life, and trust you implicitly. The keys are patience, prevention, kindness, empathy, and trust. Oh, and liver treats.

If you're interested in our Shy Dog class, our next series starts Saturday, October 2. It's a 3-week short course, and you'll find all the details here: https://lakemillsvetclinic.com/dog-training-classes/shy-dog

Congratulations to the pups and their peeps who graduated from Puppy Preschool Thursday. Everyone had a blast as they worked on sit, come, stay, wait, watch, leave it, lay down. They all gained confidence during puppy game night and are on their way to more fun and adventures. Four paws up to Ruby, Pearl, Luna, Leah, Oliver, and Oakley (not pictured).

Behavior and the Senior Dog

Dogs experience many changes as they age. There are lots of things we can do to help them.

Dogs are living longer these days than ever before due to advanced veterinary care and better nutrition. However, as they get older, age-related diseases such as arthritis, dental disease, diabetes, Cushing’s disease, thyroid disease, cancer, and decreases in vision and hearing can all result....

Do us a kind.

When arriving at The Lake Mills Veterinary Clinic with your dog, please have them on a fixed and secure leash, no longer than 6 feet*. While retractable leashes allow your Jack Russell Terrorist to explore the wildflowers and varmint holes of Korth and Dorothy Carnes Parks, at the clinic they can lead to wrapped posts,
forced acquaintances, and head wounds.

In one recent episode, a flexi with stripped gears resulted in a horrified clinic cat and a flurry of projectiles and profanity from
our most senior staff member. Though no animals were injured in the scene, he was not proud.

Thank you for your understanding.

(*Adjusted for the height ratio between you and your dog. Our favorite macaroni-and-cheese-eating CVT could walk a medium sized lab on a six-inch strap.)

We are really enjoying having clients back in our building! Please continue to call from the parking lot, so that we can manage traffic in our building. This is related to COVID, but also to our upcoming construction phase (starting June 21!), since the building will be changing around us, including reception and patient care areas.

For pickups, we are still doing Carhop service, so please call on arrival so that we can bring items out to you.

Thanks for your patience, and we look forward to spending time with you in person!

After 30 years of saving money in a coffee can (or possibly visiting the Bank of Lake Mills, but I like my version better), Dr. Stork is moving full speed ahead on some forward-thinking renovations to our clinic, including an "outdoor" exam room, additional indoor exam rooms, and fencing for our classroom area! Construction will be in stages, and is expected to be fully completed around Thanksgiving. Stay tuned for updates as work begins on June 21!

Some quick answers to your anticipated questions:
No, we won't be closing at all during construction.
Yes, we might be moving activities around to different areas of the building as work starts in new spaces.
No, we don't anticipate offering fewer appointments or changing our work hours.
Yes, we might have a more full parking lot from time to time with construction vehicles.
Yes, we might experience some changes to where we conduct our classes. We're hoping to stay mostly on premises, but we'll update you if we need to adjust, to keep your puppies and dogs safe and happy during lessons.

Thanks in advance for your patience! We're excited about this project, and hope you are, too!

Recv. your notice that Luke was due for his annual exam. I have not followed up on this because both Luke and Jake have had all their shots up-dated and had their dental work done at the Spa Me Clinic in Madison. Having said this, I want you to know I am not changing clinics. I still want Lake Mills Veterinary Clinic as my primary clinic. Looking forward to bring my dogs in for their summer checks and what ever shots they may need at that time. James Corfits If you feel I should still bring the dogs in for an exam and up dates please let me know. I will do just that.
Marley is embracing his new diet with enthusiasm.
This big guy is Blizzard. He came into the clinic this week, and we couldn’t help ourselves! Can you believe he’s only 15 weeks old?
Happy Veterinary Technician week to all you beauties!! Thank you ladies for all that you do!!From carrying food upstairs for our fur babies, holding them for vaccines and blood draws, having to clean their teeth to dealing with a**l glands. Thank you for your gentle ways. When it’s time to say our good byes to our beloved family member, thank you for knowing what to say and for feeling our pain and saddens with us. You all are the best, always!! ♥️♥️. Kelly Smart, you make me proud!! 🥰
Did you know?! 😻
I just want to give another whole hearted thank you for making sure my gizz got back home to us and now can be by her adopted sister Kee who you guys also helped us through the pain and getting her ashes back home 2 yrs ago when we lost her. It's been a very hard past 2 weeks since losing gizz. She was a part of my life for all 12 yrs of her little life as I hand raised her from a newborn. We had a bond like no other and as much as I thought I was ready today to bring her back I lost it in your parking lot when I was handed her ashes and paw print. From the bottom of my heart thank you all so much for being such a amazing group of people. You all make us all feel like a big family!!!
I had A cat ready for the vet, just the wrong cat yesterday. -Ashley N
Thank-you Dr. Stork for helping our rescue dog Milo Saturday morning. He is much better now! ❤️
Loki and all of us had a blast the last 5 weeks at puppy preschool. Hes one proud pup of his new toy he earned at graduation tonight. Thank you all for doing a amazing job with all the classes you guys put on!!!
Guess what Danielle and emily??? When we got home last night i practiced the watch with moving hand to the side. Loki got it on the first try and has done it ever since. Today added in a few more distractions while practicing and still gets it!!!
Loki's first encounter with fish!!! Didn't let him get to close as they are catfish but he was definitely interested to say the least!!!
It was a fun night at puppy class and our son even got to help out a bit. He got to go around and help blow bubbles for all the puppies. Yesterday we also got me Loki out again around a bunch of people and a 135lb+ Newfoundland dog. This was something very new for Loki but quickly became buddies. We practiced our parking quite a bit and are really working hard on socializing him.
