Read What Our Clients Say

    Thank you, Dr. Krueger, for seeing my Parker the same day I called. He feels so much better. It is comforting to know I can get Parker into the vet pretty quickly when needed, and the care, compassion, and education at Wisconsin Valley Vets is excellent!!!

    Lindy Penn

    Dr. Chadwick was great to meet and use as a resource. We are new to goats and she informed us, taught and recommended lots of information that we didn't know. She was a great resource and a pleasure to work with. Thank you!!! We have had other great experiences with our horses with the other doctors as well. Great practice!!
