Rex was playing Houdini with one cone so his owner needed to double up, we think this should work!
Congrats to our most recent crew of tiny cuties who graduated Puppy Preschool! From bite inhibition and good play manners, to come when called and impulse control, they worked hard at everything. Pictured: Sydney, Shula, Reggie, Leisel, Molly, Pudge, and Snuffy
We just graduated our 20th class for 2022! Congratulations to our most recent Family Dog Manners graduates, Wilbur, Kyla, Gunner, Bo, Dakota, Boomer, Bosco and (not pictured) Ruby and Greta! These persistent pups learned how to leave an open jar of peanut butter on the floor, worked on greeting visitors without jumping on them, practiced sniffing walks and leash manners, and so much more.
Congratulations to our recent Puppy Preschool graduates, Avanti, Finn, Louie, Kif, and Tails! They had some wild times in the play sessions, and learned a lot about hanging out with puppies who are different from them. They worked a lot on learning to use their teeth gently, sitting to greet instead of jumping, and coming when called (mostly). Thanks for trusting us with your puppies' early education!
Congrats to Maggie, Zori, Lucy, Beethoven, and Cheyenne who graduated Family Dog Manners on April 10! Apologies for the delay in posting your photos! These cuties learned some impulse control, recall skills, body positions like sit, down, and stand, leash manners, and how to have fun with sniffing walks and food-dispensing toys!
Sonia and Henry rocked our last Leash Manners class. Want to give it a try? The next series starts tomorrow (Thursday, May 5), and there are a couple of openings.
There's more information, including a link to the sign-up form, here: https://lakemillsvetclinic.com/dog-training-classes/leash-manners
We have some open spots in our Leash Manners class, starting this week! This is a 3-week short course, meeting on Thursdays: May 5, 12, and 26 (skips May 19). If you need some help focusing your dog on leash, reducing pulling, teaching your dog to walk with a loose leash, and being more interesting than a squirrel, this is your class!

Dr. Stork is a regular guest on Wisconsin Public Radio. In March, he talked about lost pets, and the emergence of disease-carrying ticks in our area.
Temperatures are warming up and that means our beloved pets will be spending more time in the great outdoors. But according to AKC Reunite, one in three pets will become lost at some point in their life. Our guest explains how pet microchips work and offers guidance on flea and tick prevention.
Congratulations to our most recent Puppy Preschool graduates! In addition to figuring out how to play with puppies of very different sizes (and breeds), these little fuzzybutts worked on impulse control, cues like "sit," "down," and "come," skills like drop it and leave it, and learned about all sorts of fun things in the world, like bubbles and tunnels! Way to go Bella, Ollie, Georgie, Olive, Cody, and Ranger!
Sad news— Found deceased cat over byThiesens in Jefferson WI. Looks like a younger cat brown and black tabby with a red collar that’s fuzzy. I have a picture and can send it to you if you think it’s your cat. No microchip found.
Congratulations to the graduates of our latest Leash Manners classes! After most of class being held indoors we took it outaide to challenge everyone. These pups and peeps did great working on keeping their attention where it needed to be and staying focused. Well done!
In case you don't already know, Dr. Bill Stork is an author, storyteller, and regular guest on Wisconsin Public Radio. About a year ago, he was interviewed for the Love Wisconsin series.
I grew up in Decatur, Illinois, a couple generations removed from our family farm. My dad was a heavy equipment operator. Mom was, as I like to say, a comfort food gourmet. Photo courtesy of Bill Stork We had one of those houses where Dad had a bullet heater and jack stands in the garage; … “Lea...
We got some lickimats with suction cups, but Becky may need a tutorial on how to use them...
(PSA: we do NOT recommend this technique; please don't try this at home! :-) )
Congrats to our recent Puppy Preschool graduates: Buster, Indie, Walter, Wes, Oakley, Baloo (not pictured), and Beans (not pictured)! These cuties were enthusiastic play group participants, and learned all sorts of new skills, including come when called, dropping/giving up items when asked, and walking (mostly nicely) on leash. Pardon the extra picture of Oakley - it takes two pictures to get her whole body in focus!
Congrats to our recent Family Dog Manners graduates! Kingston, Gilda, Opal, Felix, and Bond practiced impulse control, come when called, leave it (with an open jar of peanut butter), and so much more!
Dr. Bill Stork is in the lineup for the Fort Atkinson Community Club FACTalks...
Is your puppy between 8 and 16 weeks of age? If you're not already in puppy class, you should be! Why? Because puppy class isn't just about training, it's about setting up lifelong confidence and resilience in your puppy. All dogs experience stress at some point in their lives. How your dog rebounds and copes with that stress makes a huge difference in their (and your) quality of life. Come join us for the best start in life for your puppy! We have some last-minute openings in our Puppy Preschool starting this Sunday, March 27! Visit our website (in the link) for more details.
ANOTHER UPDATE! We just added an additional series starting May 5 - priority will be given to enrollment forms we've already received, but it appears that we still have a spot or two open, so feel free to sign up!
UPDATE: Leash Manners in April is now full! Please feel free to submit an enrollment form to indicate interest, in case the instructor decides to offer another series this year.
Feeling like your dog needs some help with leash manners? It's your lucky day - we have openings in our Leash Manners class! This 3-week series is a crash (not literally) course in teaching your dog loose leash walking, and helping the two of you have more fun walks together!
Full details are on our website, including an enrollment form: https://lakemillsvetclinic.com/dog-training-classes/leash-manners
Congratulations to our most recent Rally graduates. If you are not sure what Rally is check out the videos in comments. Amazing job everyone!
Stormy is showing her Irish love today 🍀
Hello friends, you might have noticed we're still asking you to call on arrival. We no longer use a traditional waiting room, because dogs and cats passing each other in lobbies creates a great deal of stress for them (and you!). We carefully control animal traffic in our building to help everyone have a positive experience.
So, if you are coming in to pick up something and you don't have your pet with you, just walk on in!
If you have your pet with you (for an appointment, weight check, social visit, or otherwise), please just call from the parking lot and we'll make sure it's clear for you to come in. Easy-peasy.
Thanks for your courtesy!
Welcome and Check-in in Lake Mills, WI. Lake Mills Veterinary Clinic is your local Veterinarian in Lake Mills serving all of your needs. Call us today at (920) 648-2421 for an appointment.
When you're a low stress handling certified clinic, your patients can't wait to see you! (Thanks, Saber and Tracy!)
Better late than never, right? We enjoyed our clinic "Christmas in February" party with some friendly competition at Kiss My Axe and then dinner catered by Moon Rabbit at Plattdeutscher Hall in Watertown. There may have been shenanigans...
Hello friends, we're switching our postcard reminders to a new company, so please pardon any duplicates you receive over the next little bit as we get past the overlap period. We think you'll love the new ones! ;-)
Meet Smokey our office assistant for the morning 🐾
Congrats to our most recent Puppy Preschool graduates! These cuties learned some impulse control, social manners, important skills like "drop it" and "come," and so much more! Say hello to Moose, Molly, Oakley, Luna, and Jameson. (Not pictured: Simba, Oaklea.)
When the power goes out, you find any kind of light source (in this case headlamp and cell phone), so that you can still give treatments to your patient! (Becky Emmer, CVT, giving fluids this morning)
UPDATE: the power is back on!
Hi friends, the power is out across Lake Mills. All calls to our clinic are being routed to a single cell phone, so please be patient if you don't get through right away. We don't have access to our computers yet, so we're limited in the information we have about you and your pets.
If you are in the parking lot, please leave your pets in the vehicle (if safe to do so) and come on up to the front door. Thanks for your patience!
Did you know that we are a behaviorally-focused veterinary clinic? That means that everything we do takes your pet's behavioral health and well-being into account. We are also experts in Cooperative Care, which is an approach that can allow your pet to be an active participant in his/her care. This article is a good introduction to the benefits of cooperative care.
