MADISON – Local pet owners have another option for dependable health care for their beloved family members with The Pet Hospital of Madison at 12225 County Line Road.

Dr. Angelique M. Lawrence and Dr. Erin Brown lead the veterinary staff at The Pet Hospital. “Dr. Lawrence owns a third of the practice with Dr. Tavis White and Dr. Shannon Johnson, who both also own Countryside Veterinary Hospital in Toney,” practice manager Ruth Freeman said.

The staff treats cats and dogs, along with other furry pets including ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, sugar gliders, rats and mice.

The Pet Hospital of Madison emphasizes preventive care for pets, including annual physical exams to help the animal have a healthy, long life. Preventive care allows the veterinarians to detect and correct small issues before these develop into larger problems.

Their most common surgeries are spaying and neutering, declawing, minor eye problems, tumor and mass removals, soft tissue repairs for wounds and lacerations, removal of foreign bodies, amputations and dental procedures.

The veterinarians also help pets with allergies, chiropractic and orthopedic care, in-house lab and diagnostic technology, radiology, pain management and end-of-life care. The Pet Hospital of Madison provides boarding and grooming.

Pet owners can watch for specific symptoms that can signal an emergency. Labored breathing is one sign, along with pale, white or blue gums. The animal may lose its balance, walk in circles or exhibit dizziness.

Other emergency indications are loss of consciousness, collapsing, inability to walk, seizures, bloated abdomen and cries in pain. A temperature under 99 degrees or over 104 degrees is another sign. Normal temperatures in pets range between 100.5 and 102.5 degrees, the veterinarians said.

Office hours at The Pet Hospital of Madison are Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, 4 to 5 p.m. On weekends, a doctor will not be available, but the staff will handle needs for food, medication and boarding pick-up and drop-off.
