Hill’s Pet Nutrition recently put out a voluntary recall on their canned food products due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D. Although animals benefit from vitamin D, ingesting too much of it can lead to potential health issues. Luckily, in most cases, complete recovery is expected after discontinuation of the canned food.

Hill’s is working in coordination with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to get the affected products recalled. As of right now, the recall only extends to canned food and does not apply to dry food, cat food, or other treats.

Canine Influenza

Many of our clients have called to learn how they can keep their dog safe and healthy, so Dr. Sullivan has suggested these tips:

What is Canine Influenza?

Canine Influenza is a respiratory virus that can cause severe disease and even death in extreme cases. The greatest risk of contact is when your dog is placed in a situation where there is contact with other dogs, such as doggie daycare, boarding kennels, grooming parlors and the like. Young dogs, older dogs, and dogs with a compromised immune system are at greatest risk.

AAFP Cat Friendly PracticeMiddleton Veterinary Hospital has been approved by the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) as a Cat Friendly Practice – Gold Status!

According to the AAFP, even though there are millions more pet cats than there are pet dogs in the United States, cats visit the veterinarian much less frequently. This is largely because of the stress that comes with vet visits for cats and their owners. 

At Middleton Veterinary Hospital, we strive to make your visit to the doctor with your feline companion as stress-free as possible. The gold standard status we've received is for practices that have incorporated the optimum level of AAFP's Cat Friendly Criteria.

We are committed to your cat's health! Call us at (608) 836-8561 if you have questions about the AAFP's Cat Friendly Practice Program or the services we provide our feline patients.

Middleton Veterinary Hospital is celebrating 60 years of quality service to pets of the Middleton, Wisconsin area.

Celebrating 60 Years of Quality Pet Care in WisconsinFounded by Dr. Arlyle McDermid in 1955 as a large animal practice, it has evolved into a full-service facility providing veterinary care to pet dogs, cats, birds and exotics.

Dr. Klostermann, recently retired, joined the hospital in 1978 and helped turn Middleton Veterinary Hospital into the well-established practice that it is today.

Over the years there have been many changes to the building and hospital technologies to keep up with the ongoing advancements in veterinary medicine. The staff has also grown from a one-doctor practice to a five-doctor practice with over 10 support staff members.

Thank you to all our doctors, staff, clients and patients for helping us get this far. Here's to 60 more years!

We sell gift certificates for the holidays as well as for any occasion. We can take gift certificate orders over the phone with a valid credit card or just stop by during our regular business hours. Middleton Veterinary Hospital gift certificates can be made out in any dollar amount and can be redeemed in the hospital for both veterinary services and products.
