Vets in Zug recommendations

We moved back to the area (Unterägeri) and would appreciate and vet recommendations for our 3 chocy cherubs. We could go to our old vet in Afoltern a.A who was superb, but thats a hike, and I'm not sure they would work so far away in case of emergency etc.

Re: Vets in Zug recommendations

I think the world of my vet, Dr Alexander Gerold at MyVets in Cham:

http://www.myvets.ch

Dr Gerold is an internal medicine specialist, I first met him years ago at the clinic in Hünenberg when I came in panicking after Hooligan's first seizure. He has helped each of mine through some very serious illnesses.

Last summer Dr Gerold, along with Dr Yuri Béosier (surgery and orthapedics - he did Haifisch's amputation, and helped the Belltie avoid surgery), Dr Alexandra Lierau (general practice) and Dr Isabelle Zulauf (exotics) opened their own practice. Marco Mouwen also does physiotherapy at the practice one day a week. (He, along with Dr Béosier, are helping Heffalump learn how to walk correctly again.)

I know I am in good hands with Dr Gerold - and doG knows, my crew of 'medically interesting' mutts have proved his skill over and over again.

The practice is very personal, very customer-focused, the vets really do see the owner as a partner in our animal's care. Communication with the pet owner is excellent - I can drop Dr Gerold an email anytime should I have a concern.

The MyVets team still work closely with Hünenberg and the Tierspital when needed.

Very highly recommended.


And an FYI, the clinic at Hünenberg (Ennetsee) is the area's 24/7 emergency clinic in addition to being a general practice clinic. Also excellent, albeit as one would expect with a large institution more 'clinical' in approach. (The Belltie still sees Dr Laim there for his acupuncture sessions.) Whoever you choose as a primary vet, you should get acquainted with the clinic as a 'just in case'.

The Animal Oncology and Imaging Center, led by Dr Kaser-Holz, is in the same building, should (doG forbid) you ever need their expertise. Outstanding care.

If you need a veterinary Opthalmologist, there is Dr Marianne Richter, who spends two days a week at Praxis Göbli in Zug itself

You will be spoiled for choice in Zug.

Re: Vets in Zug recommendations

Thanks for that MC. Trying to explain to the 11 year old there is only so much running, jumping, hunting, swimming and playing in a set of legs..... and he has more than exceeded his quota is proving a challenge, so I'll let a pro do it

Re: Vets in Zug recommendations

+1 for the clinic at Hünenberg (Ennetsee) we take our cats there, always found they take a very pragmatic approach finding the right balance betweeb doing and not doing stuff.

Poor fella. That stage of 'the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak' is tough on both of you.

I've had very good luck with our mobility issues thanks to the MyVets team.

We have recently had the almost 15 year old wobbly Belltie fitted with a neoprene splint-like thingy to stabilize the leg that is in danger of giving way. So far so good, it does indeed give him the support he needs to keep on bundling about. Because it's made of neoprene, theoretically he could even go swimming in it. (Theoretically, because the Belltie melts in water; cue Wicked Witch Of The West-like dramatics at the sight of a puddle.)

Young Heffalump bunny-hops rather than runs, so suspecting HD we had the full orthopedic MOT done. Turned out his hips are fine but he has an extra vertebrae, putting his weight too far forward hence the gait problems. So we've been doing physiotherapy to make him aware of his back legs again, teaching him to walk correctly.

The good news is that he has already recovered significant mobility. The bad news is that OH is outside as I type this, re-building our fences. Hopping Heffalump has been transformed into Houdini Heffalump. (Be careful what you wish for, and all that. )

I hope that something can be done to help keep your lad's legs running, jumping, hunting, swimming and playing a long while yet.

Re: Vets in Zug recommendations

If you feel acupuncture might help then I recommend Dr Rohdewald at Oberwil. We were sceptic about its possibilities before seeing a friends Airdale, who had a slipped disc, trying to play football after his sessions. That was whilst we were in Belgium and we started with Bella there too. Dr Rhodewald was the nearest to us when we moved here and we are so glad we found him, kind, empathetic and always has time to listen to your worries and give all the options. Good luck with your search.

Re: Vets in Zug recommendations

I second the vote for my vets. Alexandra lierau is great. I have also used the Kleintierpraxis gobli on industriestasse in zug which is also good and much closer to you.
