★★★★★ Staff were very friendly and efficient. The clinic is very clean and welcoming. We love it! 😻JenJen ★★★★★ I've been a loyal client of Waunakee Veterinary Clinic for years, and there's a reason why I keep coming back. From the moment I stepped through their doors with my last pet, who faced numerous challenges, I knew I had found a special place. When the time came to say goodbye and make the difficult decision to euthanize him, the staff went above and beyond to support my family with kindness and compassion.Fast forward to my current pet, and after trying out a local vet clinic, I realized the importance of a personal connection with the staff. Despite the extra 25-minute drive, I couldn't resist returning to Waunakee Veterinary Clinic for that familiar warm, fuzzy feeling. The staff here truly cares about every pet and owner who walks through their doors, making each visit feel like catching up with old friends.If you're looking for a veterinary clinic that treats you and your furry family members like part of their own, look no further than Waunakee Veterinary Clinic. I can't recommend them highly enough!Dawn E.Dawn E. ★★★★★ Waunakee Veterinary Clinic has given amazing care to my dogs. I recently lost my dog, Jordy, and they were so caring and thoughtful knowing how difficult it was for me. Although I lost him, I still take my dog, Maddie, to the clinic and they treat her so nicely. We were in recently for an exam, and they treated my girl just like she was their own. Highly recommend them for your pets!Heather P.Heather P. ★★★★★ I have been taking our dogs to Waunakee Vet Clinic since 2010. We've received wonderful care, but equally as important is the amount of compassion they've shown. They are always so nice to not only us, but to our "kids." You can tell they love animals as much as I do and I feel comfortable letting them go in the back room with them, knowing they will be treated kindly even outside of my presence. Everyone there is friendly and I've come to know them by name. We've had to say goodbye to three dogs and they cried along with us. The front desk staff upon having to say goodbye to our last dog stood up when we came in, which felt so respectful. We don't have real kids, so our dogs are our "kids" and it's great to know they are getting wonderful care.Kristine A.Kristine A. ★★★★★ I have taken all of pets to Waunakee Veterinary since we moved to Waunakee in 1994. The staff always great me with smiles and know our pets. They are very helpful and always return our calls. I know when we board or take our pets to Veterinary, they get the best care.Shirley K.Shirley K. ★★★★★ I absolutely love the Waunakee Clinic. Emily has been my primary veterinarian for about 10 years and she is fantastic! All the other veterinarians there are super too!! Vet technicians and office help are amazing. I highly recommend the Waunakee Veterinary Clinic.Waunakee Vet has the best Veterinarians and Vet Techs!! They provide excellent medical care to all my animals and their friendly service is topnotch!! It feels like visiting with family each time! I would like to recognize Venessa this time. She goes above and beyond to make sure my cats are cared for and all my questions are answered. Waunakee Vet Clinic is the best!!Rose Y.Rose Y. ★★★★★ We have been very happy since switching to Waunakee Veterinary, including special attention during an emergency. The staff is kind and efficient, and a range of options for treatments and preventative care are given. We haven't used it personally but have also heard good things about the boarding services.MikeMike ★★★★★ Very clean, Very Nice Staff and very HelpfulIrene S.Irene S. ★★★★★ We've brought numerous pets here through the years. We've always had a great experience.Mick R.Mick R. ★★★★★ I loved to the Madison area almost two years ago. One would have thought my biggest stressor would be a new job and leaving my friends of 20+ years but they weren't. It was finding vet care for my then four animals, now five. I did all the things of posting for suggestions and asking people at work where they went. I did try another vet in the area but didn't get a very welcoming feel. When I went to Waunakee Vet it felt familiar. It felt welcoming and still does. I love that they don't push me into decisions and respect my decisions. Having five, there are a lot of those. If they don't actually love my animals, I wouldn't know it. They treat each of them like family and always find at least a couple things great to say about each of them. Another great thing is I don't have to worry about what vet or technician I am scheduled with as I haven't had one I didn't like. It is a great group of talented individuals. I am glad I found Waunakee Vet for my family!Gina R.Gina R. ★★★★★ Waunakee Vet has been nothing but friendly and welcoming since I started bringing my animals there over two years ago. For both cats and dogs, medicine, boarding, and annual check-ups have been a breeze, even when the pets didn't want to cooperate. Thank you for always helping with even the smallest concern I had!Arius L.Arius L. ★★★★★ We love Waunakee Veterinary and are grateful to have such excellent care for our dogs! The vets and techs are the best in every way. Extremely knowledgeable and skilled, compassionate. I have complete trust in them. We have gotten to know them well due to one of our dogs having complicated health issues. Dr Sarah, Dr Stacy, Dr Emily and Dr Foley have been amazing every step of the way. I would also name every vet tech, receptionist, office management, and boarding/daycare employee as the absolute best. These are people who give 100% every day. I feel totally confident leaving our dogs for boarding, the staff is simply outstanding, and how reassuring our dog's medical records are available. We are so fortunate to have total, reliable care like this.MaryMary ★★★★★ We love Dr. Sarah! The whole staff is great and know our frequent flyer critters by name!Mckenzie D.Mckenzie D. ★★★★★ Kind, compassionate and knowledgeable staff.Kellie D.Kellie D. ★★★★★ We have been there for years and have had nothing but amazing service.Jason D.Jason D. ★★★★★ I knew our Ruby had a terrible ear infection! They got her in right away, assessed the situation, taught me how to take care of her ears! I’m a nurse but don’t know the first thing about dog ears! They are all so gentle and kind to us all! They were able to give Ruby her vaccines while we were there and let me run home to get our other dog, Kate, for her vaccines… appreciate that so much!Debra K.Debra K. ★★★★★ Very caring staff. We recently lost our puppy after nearly fifteen years due to a few health issues. We've had been taking Kieta to the Waunakee Veterinary Clinic since we first brought her home. Their service and sincere interest in our pets health care has been exceptional over the years. Kieta's euthanization was handled professionally and humane. We appreciate the recent card we received from the Clinic with handwritten comments from the staff. They also made a donation to the Arbor Day Foundation to have a tree planted in her name in the Chippewa National Forest.Randy C.Randy C. ★★★★★ My dog receives excellent care with the professional and caring team at Waunakee Vet clinic!Becky CBecky C ★★★★★ We have been going to Waunakee Veterinary clinic for 2 years with our puppy. Dr. Sarah and Dr. Stacy have been great! They truly care about the animals they care for as well as address your concerns as an owner. All the staff at Waunakee Vet clinic are very kind and helpful.Melissa F.Melissa F. ★★★★★ Staff are always welcoming and helpful. We've entrusted our many dogs to the Waunakee Vet Clinic since they were located on west Main Street back in the 1980's even through all of the changes. Ann Kabele has been a bright, shining light for the clinic through all these years!SamSam ★★★★★ Recently moved here from out of state. Dr Stacy Skoraczewski is the best. She spent much time with my elderly dog and seems very knowledgeable and compassionate. Both vet techs I encountered were very nice and good with my pet. Hannah at the front desk is also very helpful and pleasant. Recently had Maddie groomed there also and Courtney did a good job in a timely fashion. I’m happy to have found full service vet care of this quality so close to my home.Cathy J.Cathy J. ★★★★★ The staff are all very compassionate and knowledgeable.Deborah N.Deborah N. ★★★★★ The veterinarians and technicians are always very friendly and attentive to our cats. We always have had a great experience, coming here over 25 years now.Jodi B.Jodi B. ★★★★★ Waunakee vets/ dog boarding/ doggie day care is the “complete package “ for caring for your beloved pet.

Thank you staff members.Patrick and Patricia Murphypat M.pat M. ★★★★★ I took my two 1-yr-old cats to the Waunakee Veterinary Clinic recently for their annual preventative care examination and vaccines.I met with Veterinarian Dr. Emily Abrams as well Practice Manager Ann Kabele. They were both extremely professional in every respect, and they answered all my questions and listened to all my concerns. I couldn’t have had a better experience, nor could my two tabbies.I highly recommend the Waunakee Veterinary Clinic and their excellent staff for all of your pet needs.KAREN W.KAREN W. ★★★★★ Always caring of our pets, and friendly to boot!Maura F.Maura F. ★★★★★ I have been bringing my pets to WVC since 2008 and have always had great service with the staff. So much so, that when Doggie Daycare was added to their facility in 2018, I became a staff member!!!Gail M.Gail M. ★★★★★ We moved to this side of town a couple of years ago and decided to switch vets out of convenience. Little did we know we were going to get a huge upgrade from our previous care...Our dog has a rare condition (the vet at Waunakee Vet Clinic has only managed one other like him in 10 years). We thought we were taking good care of him based on what the previous vet had us doing, but we were not tracking his levels enough to know that the major diet change alone wasn't sufficient.Long story short, within a year of diligent intervention by Dr. Sarah, our sweet old boy is back on track. This very easily could've shortened his life span had she not taken swift action and recommended supplements that helped his liver repair!Above and beyond this, she (and the other vets, tech, & staff) have always been SO unbelievably supportive and thorough with any questions we have (even if they're silly). They take such good care of our pup & honestly, us... going so far as to even help us get rebates on expensive medicine without us even asking! We're so grateful for their support & kindness and would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone.Cassie S.Cassie S. ★★★★★ We LOVE the daycare program and can't live without it! Plus boarding our pup has always been great and we love being able to see what she is up to with the video app they use. The staff is always so accommodating and great to work with.Tammy R.Tammy R. ★★★★★ Our cats have been visiting Waunakee Vet for several years and I can say, now on my 2nd set of cats, the front desk, customer support, technicians, and vets are all friendly all the time, and are experts with my cats. I had to put my 2 previous cats down at 14 and 17.5 years of age and they gave them excellent care and, at the end, showed me and both cats so much empathy. I'm certain my younger cats now are in excellent care.Michelle R.Michelle R. ★★★★★ Caring pplmarc J.marc J. ★★★★★ The Dr.s here always take care of our 2 large breed dogs, with complete understanding of their needs. Dr. Sarah is fabulous. They are all especially patient and love our gentle giant, a Spanish Mastiff, named Jetta.Carlen K.Carlen K. ★★★★★ I started taking my elderly cat to Waunakee Vet to get a second opinion on teeth cleaning and tooth extraction a few years ago. Last year I also needed another opinion when my cat was unable to use his hind legs and couldn’t walk for about a week. I was amazed when my cat bounced back, when I thought I was going to have to put him down. I’m so grateful I was able to get another 6 months to love and care for my cat.I’m forever grateful for all the love and kindness I received from Waunakee Vet. Sadly, I had to put my cat Felix down last month. I received a card in the mail from them and was touched with their gift in memory of Felix. Thank you for helping me and helping Felix when he needed it. I know he loved all of his visits to the clinic 💜Lindsey P.Lindsey P. ★★★★★ Romeo and I are extremely happy at Waunakee Veterinarian! Wouldn't go anywhere else!!!Jan W.Jan W. ★★★★★ The staff have always treated of pets as if they were part of there family. We have been going to them for 30 plus years. Amazing care and Compassion over the years.Daniel O.Daniel O. ★★★★★ We bring our 2 pups here and we just love all of the staff. They staff are all so very kind and I can feel how they all genuinely care for the welfare of our animals. Our pups haven’t always been so keen on going to prior vets, but our dogs are very relaxed around the staff and enjoy all the extra attention! We also like how straightforward about pricing and options they are and we LOVE that we can checkout in the examination room itself instead of having to do so at the front desk while others are checking in/out. It makes the process so much less stressful for all. We are big fans of this vet clinic!Mike W.Mike W. ★★★★★ The Waunakee Vetrinary team have been taking care of our cats for over 10 years now. They are real animal lovers, and approach the care of pets in a manner that would be suitable for people as well! If you're looking for top notch care for your pets, Waunakee Veterinary Clinic is the place to go!Aaron W.Aaron W. ★★★★★ We have tried a couple vets around Madison, and were referred to Waunakee by a friend about 2 years ago. We came originally for a toenail surgery, and have since made this our full time vet. The techs care so deeply about the animals, and my super sensitive dog is NEVER afraid to go into the vet. He has always told me when something is wrong, but he is happy to go here every time.We also have made this our home for Doggie Daycare, which makes life SO MUCH EASIER. If our dog needs a vaccine, or a checkup, they just pluck him out of daycare for a few minutes, and it's a one stop shop. Our dog loves it here, and even though the clinic has had some bad eggs in the past, the people who are still here are wonderful and I know my dog is in good hands. Thank you for taking such good care of Strider!Sarah M.Sarah M. ★★★★★ Kind, competent, compashinentSheri S.Sheri S. ★★★★★ Best place for your pet to stay and receive care.
