Doctor Natalie Matthews and staff were absolutely wonderful, loving and caring, in the medical care they provided to both of my dogs. (My baby Skylar and my baby Hunter) Skylar and Hunter lived longer than their expected years, because of the professional, loving medical care they received from Dr Natalie and staff. I cannot day enough good about this crew!! They are the BEST!! When I have another dog, I will ONLY entrust his/her medical care to Dr Natalie Matthews and staff!!Betty Boeshart

Dr. Lewis, Dr. Matthews and their whole office staff were very kind & professional when our dog became ill while we were visiting Abilene. They kept us updated each day. They showed us the prices upfront. Very caring and loving with our dog.

I just moved to Abilene Texas this summer and need a vet for my Bulldog. I tried to contact this clinic by phone and but there is only a busy signal every time I call. Does not give me warm fuzzy feelings on the quality of pet care if you can't even answer your phone.

A staff member named Kylie Ratliff killed a rattlesnake, posted the picture on the practice's Facebook page, then posted again refusing to apologize for her actions. This is a clear reflection of this practixe's beliefs-they only care about certain animals. How can you trust them to care for your own pets if they kill animals?

A disgusting example of animal care. Kills native wildlife and brags about it on social media. Them when questioned about it. Attacked and insults. Then issued an "apology" stating that what they did was right and business continued to condone killing native wildlife saying "That animal means less then their dogs"

I was not informed the office had changed hands until I asked when I got there. We had been taking our pets to Dr. Williams for years with no complaints. I called & made an appointment to get Sandy's shots & her heart-worm medications renewed.I told him she had been acting a little lethargic, but she's 10 yrs old. I knew there would be a blood test for heartworms but wasn't informed of the additional $150.00 in tests until after the fact. Sandy still hasn't had any of her shots & he wants me to bring her back the next day for more tests which would take all day and another 2 or 3 hundred dollars.I changed my mind about more blood tests. I was supposed to have her at his office between 7:30 & 8. I called the office to tell them at 20 minutes til 8, and proceeded to get scolded by his office manager. He said I shouldn't have waited so long to notify them. He said he had been there 10 minutes before I called. I didn't appreciate his attitude and being scolded by him,so I hung up.
Tips & Advices
Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
