The Pet Stop
I don't know anything about parakeets, but I do know the people at the Pet Stop. These people are amazing. Dr. Wilson was the primary vet tending to the health of my black lab for 15 years. The service and care we received from everyone there was tremendous. My dog loved going to the vet even though there were times that weren't much fun.That tough day came when it was time to put him down. The staff outdid themselves in making sure everything went as well as possible for both of us. The actual procedure went flawlessly. It was fast and easy for the dog which meant the world to me.I can't thank you folks enough.I highly recommend the Pet Stop to anyone searching for a great vet.

Hillside Pet Clinic
4/4/2016I ended up paying $713.79 for my 1 year old cat to be spayed! After the first visit my bill was $457.75. They put a soft cone on her and sent her home. I had her home for 20 minutes and noticed her stomach was open. I brought her back and was charged an additional $256.04. They said she was able to chew her sutures out even though the cone was on. 4/5/2016The manager called me the next day. He said they make a mistake by charging me extra to re-stitch. I was refunded $256.04

Cornerstone Animal Hospital
I have lots to say about the professional, sincere and honest vet, Gardner Montgomery. I have been to a few different clinics, and this was the one vet and clinic who I really feel cares for the animals and people! The vet techs and front desk staff are equally as wonderful, and it all makes a big difference when it comes to the trust and honesty of vet care. Thank you Cornerstone for doing such a great job!

Good clinic. Good Vets. Good staff.
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
