To our valued clients,

Many changes in our world over the past year and a half have produced a drastic increase in the amount of pets requiring medical attention, not just here, but across the country. Between an extreme number of new adoptions, more playtime injuries with family spending more time at home, along with limited staff, we are seeing longer wait times at many veterinary clinics. While we are doing our best to see patients in a reasonable amount of time, we are finding that our available appointments are booking several days, in some cases up to a week, in advance. We know that many of our long term clients have become accustomed to being seen almost immediately over the years, but evolving circumstances have made last minute appointment availability very limited. In order to provide the best possible care for all of our patients we may on occasion refer urgent care cases to local walk-in or emergency facilities. Our veterinarians and support staff are working tirelessly to care for our cherished patients, and more appointments do not equate to better care. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we navigate the evolving world of veterinary medicine.

  • Trudy McGee

     Clinic Mascot

     Joined our clinic 2014

     Hi! I'm Trudy, the mascot here at Bluemound Animal Hospital!

     I was found in a basement with my kittens, and once my babies all  found homes the wonderful staff here took me in.

     I like to hang out with everyone, even the patients! (Even though sometimes I like to tease them.) My favorite little  friends are ferrets and rats, they're so fun to watch!  I enjoy attention from humans too, but only when I am in the mood for it. But when I am in the mood to  play, watch out; I'll run up and down the hall no matter who's in the way!
