Clinic Information

We’re pleased to offer the following services at Van Loon Animal Hospital.

Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.

Emergency & Urgent Care
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet’s life. Emergencies can be things such as snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.

We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, our veterinarians will work to “squeeze” you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.

Why Laser Surgery?

Less pain
Laser energy seals nerve endings as it moves through tissue. Your pet feels less pain post-operatively.

Less bleeding
The laser seals small blood vessels during surgery, which allows your doctor to perform surgical procedures with extraordinary precision. This also speeds up some procedures, reducing the need for anesthesia.

Less swelling
Laser energy does not crush, tear, or bruise tissue because only a beam of intense light contacts the tissue.

What does it mean for your pet?

Reduced risk of infection
The laser sterilizes as it removes diseased tissue, killing bacteria that cause infection.

The laser can remove unhealthy tissue while minimizing adverse effects to healthy, surrounding tissue.

Quick return to normal activities
Recovery is rapid and there is less post-operative discomfort.

Professional grooming services are offered on Tuesdays. Your pet can be dropped off as early as 7:30am and picked up as late as 5:00pm.

Van Loon Animal Hospital puts “safety first” with board certified technicians assisting with all pet dental services from start to finish. All of our dental exams include a blood profile prior to sedation to check thoroughly for liver or kidney disease. Even high-risk patients have dental exams and services performed routinely at our practice. All patients have their blood oxygen monitored throughout the procedure and have an IV catheter in place with a fluid line to address any blood pressure problems.


Digital Radiology at our practice means X-rays are performed in minutes rather than hours, finding lesions that need care that were undetectable on routine exam on one of three patients we examine.

As the LaCrosse area’s “first” practice to add digital technology to our dental services, we are proud of our accomplishments!
