The best care we can give an animal is not always the most expensive. Modern diagnostics, therapies, medicines, and surgeries can improve and prolong the lives of animals more than ever before, but may not be affordable. Everyone at the Markesan Veterinary Clinic tries to do the most we can for animals with the least investment that is safe and effective. To see photos and descriptions of some incredible conservative care cases, click on the "Non-Surgical Tumor Removal" under the "more" tab above. Animals certainly have fantastic abilities to heal themselves, but "letting nature take its course" can lead to pain and suffering. Knowing when to leave things alone and when to help nature along is essential.
Just because we can do something does not mean we should do something.
The most sophisticated techniques and procedures are not necessarily the best for your pet.
Some patients do better with less invasive procedures rather than more elaborate techniques.
Sometimes a problem needs to be attacked forcefully with great strength and power. Sometimes a problem needs to be addressed gently, with precision, and patience. Sometimes a problem needs to be handled with a technique in between. The professionals at the Markesan Veterinary Clinic can help you decide what is best for you and your animals.
URGENT CARE & EMERGENCIES
While urgent care and emergencies can be needed most anytime of the day or night, there are times when no doctor is available at the Markesan Veterinary Clinic. In some cases, intensive care or advanced life support may be necessary but unavailable in general practice clinics. During those situations there is always help available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at the Fox Valley Animal Referral Center, telephone 920-993-9193, in Appleton. For a map and more information, visit their website www.fvarc.com. Or, veterinary clinics in neighboring towns may be able to help you.
You should feel comfortable discussing fees with whomever you turn to for help with your pet's health care. Requesting an estimate or setting a budget is a reasonable approach. Remember that all animals do not respond the same and do not require the same amount of care. Expect an estimate to be close, but not exact. Payment is expected at the time of service. The Markesan Veterinary Clinic accepts cash, personal checks, VISA, and MasterCard.
The entire staff of the Markesan Veterinary Clinic respects the life and well-being of patients and the clients who care for them. The members of the clinic team treat all animals as if they were our own. The choice of therapy and the level of treatment and investment are determined by the owner, but all animals get our best attention and kindhearted care.
