Homeopathy is a system of medicine developed in the 1700’s by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. It is based on how remedies affect the healthy body. It is based on the fact that if a remedy produces a symptom in a healthy body, it will cure that symptom in a diseased body. Homeopathy can be used to treat any disease. It works best when the disease has not progressed too far. Homeopathy has the advantage of usually causing fewer side effects than conventional medications. It can sometimes cure a disease that conventional medications only control.
There are many different types of food available for your pet, and each has its own benefits. The food your pet eats depends on their age, size, breed as well as other factors. If your pet has a health concern, we offer several different veterinary diets sold by prescription to help manage those needs. We also offer high quality over-the counter Purina diets to maintain a healthy, happy pet. We are here to help guide you through every stage of your pet’s life.

We currently use a class IV Therapy laser which is a phototherapy bio stimulation device exclusively for companion animals. This device uses electromagnetic radiation for injuries and lesion to stimulate tissue repair and cell growth, reduces inflammation, offers pain relief (for both acute and chronic) improves circulation, improves nerve function, and much more. Our therapeutic laser is also used for ear infections, post-op surgeries, lick granulomas, arthritis, back injuries, soft tissue trauma, etc.
Our clinic uses a 30-watt surgical laser for all routine surgeries. Using this laser allows for faster healing times, decrease in bleeding, inflammation, and pain.
We offer basic diagnostic ultrasound services to augment our diagnostic capabilities for certain abdominal conditions.
Home Euthanasia Services
The Wolf River Veterinary clinic believes in helping clients with quality of life consults and euthanasia procedures for pets. Making the decision to let your beloved pet go is one we all dread. In-home euthanasia enables your pet pass peacefully in the comfort and surroundings of your home. This lovingly avoids the trauma that most animals (and their owners) experience, when taken away to the vet’s office. There is not an upsetting trip in the car or carrier, at this very sensitive time. At home there is a sense of intimacy and final privacy that cannot be experienced anywhere else. Home euthanasia is a scheduled service. When a home burial is not feasible, we offer cremation or private cremations.
We currently offer hours for immediate care. The hours available for these services are Monday thru Thursday 7:30 a.m.–5:30 p.m., Friday 7:30a.m.-5:00p.m., and Saturday 7:30a.m.–1:00 p.m.
Emergency calls outside of these specified times are referred to the Fox Valley Animal Referral Center in Appleton at (920) 993-9193.
