I just got an e-mail from a woman in WI whose mom found a pair of guinea pigs in a snowbank. The woman lives in a small town and has every intention of keeping the piggies, but needs to find a good vet to give them a checkup after their ordeal. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

It amazes me - this is the second time I've heard of piggies actually surviving in freezing temps outdoors. What sturdy troopers they can be!

And P.S. Stupid people!!

There was nothing for WI on those links. Thanks anyway. I checked them prior to posting.

C. Cole-Chakotay, there appears to be no information or listing for vets in Wisconsin as I tried the links you gave.

Sillycavies, can you tell us where in Wisconsin this person is, or perhaps a general area so we can assist with recommendations.

Let me do an inquiry. I know someone near there in Waupaca.

I should add info to those links as I know of at least 4 or 5 good vets in Wisconsin. I'm not sure how I do that.

If you would like to list them here, I can transfer the data to the Wisconsin page. I had to disable self-signup because of horrible spam and now I can't figure out how to even set up a new account myself.

Please note the standard format for the vet list so I can just copy and paste vs. analyzing the data (tired brain).

Heres the recommend:

Dianne Scott, DVM
Oakview Animal Hospital
Plover, WI

My contact at the the Waupaca Humane Society also said that they JUST got in two pigs that had been dumped along a very remote road. She didn't say what shape they were in. Those were some very lucky pigs to be found.

It is always my thought that for every pig that is dumped and found, there are probably 5 more that have been dumped and not found :(.

Will do, Lynx.

Please add a little commentary on the vet (why recommended?). Do you want me to use your name for the recommendation?

I will if I know them. Many of these have been recommended to me over the years through my work with the rescue and I don't have first hand knowledge.

Northern Wisconsin Area

Oakview Veterinary Medical Center
2110 JayMar Road
Plover, WI 54467
(715) 344-6311


Madison Area

Dr. Carla Christman
Healthy Pet Veterinary Clinic
1440 E. Washington Avenue
Madison, WI 53703
(608) 294-9494

Dr. Christman is very reknown in working with small animals and with guinea pigs in particular. She regularly contributes to the Mounds monthly newsletter about important medical issues on guinea pigs and on dogs and cats.

Dr. Steve Erickson
All Pets Veterinary Clinic
Middleton, WI 53562
(608)831-1392

Milwaukee Area

Dr. Dianne Bennetts
Small Animal Hospital
2340 N. Newhall Street
Milwaukee, WI 53211
(414) 276-0701

Dr. Bennetts was recommended by Snowflakey

Continued:

Southern Wisconsin Area

Dr. Steve Servantez, DVM
Dr. Katie Reed, DVM

Badger Vet Hospital
3113 E. McCormick Drive
Janesville, WI
(608) 754-1888

AND

Badger Vet Hospital
712 Katie Court
Cambridge, WI 53523
(608) 423-3555

Both Dr. Servantez and Dr. Reed are very good with guinea pigs and have updated information on their medical care. It's sometimes hard to get an appointment with Dr. Servantez because he does go back and forth between the two clinics. Dr. Servantez had done surgeries on our guinea pigs and I totally trust him with this. The downside to this clinic is that you cannot count on Dr. Servantez or Dr. Reed to be on call if you have an after-hours emergency and the other vets in the clinic do not know guinea pigs. That can be frustrating, but these two are too good not to use if you live in the area.

Carla Christman in Madison!! She was my piggy vet for years. She does conventional and natural medicines and treatments and she's a guinea pig whisperer genius.

Thank you all! I've passed them on to the woman who contacted me. Here's hoping the guinea pigs have a good checkup.

WICharlie, I CANNOT believe that I CANNOT start a "new page" in the xfiles!! I can't even add your suggestions!!!!!

Do you think we should set up a listing in the Reference Forum instead? I am so frustrated! What happened with the xfiles was ending up with page after page of spam that I didn't realize was being posted for months. It took ages to clean it out of the xfiles and I shut down signing up and posting.

However you wish to do it, Lynx. How frustrating is that?

The woman said that the nearest recommended vet is 48 minutes from her, but I'm hoping she'll still take them for a checkup. At the very least, she probably needs to get them sexed.

I have a great vet recommendation that I can't believe I never posted in the vet list before the format changed. I'll try to put the information together soon.
