I have been a resident for about three years in the town of Bloomer. I moved to Bloomer from Eau Claire and I needed to find a good veterinarian for my dog’s needs and healthcare. I did some research and found that all the people who I talked to had nothing but good to say about Dr. Rothbauer. I did some other research and still the same…excellent veterinarian. It was hard for me to change vets until one day when I had an issue with my dog who was limping on three legs. I had to make a choice on what to do, so I decided to try Dr. Rothbauer County Veterinary Hospital here in Bloomer. The hospital was easy to find and staff was friendly (I got an appointment right away) and helpful. Dr. Rothbauer was just as people said. He listened, showed courtesy for what I had to say, and had a friendly and outgoing personality. He offered me different treatment plans to fit my budget in these hard times. The world needs more vets like this that will meet your needs and go out of the way to make it easier for you. Dr. Rothbauer even extended me credit and tie to pay off my bill even though it was the first time I had used his office. This is a blessing and a credit to him. He is a person who respects others and is a successful surgeon with a high success rate in his field. I heard that he has gone out of his way to help his customers at home when the dog or cat needed to be put down to relieve the stress from the animal and the owner; free of charge. I also had to have surgery done on the other knee, found that my finances were shaky, and so he offered to do the other surgery for less than what was charged for the first one, all for the well-being of the animal. This man is a saint in many people’s eyes who are animal owners and mine. He looks out for the well-being of your pet and tries to accommodate your wishes. Dr. Rothbauer should be recognized for great dedication to his profession.
