Companion Pet Hospital
We reluctantly needed to find a new veterinarian when our's transferred far away to a new clinic. Based on online reviews, we trusted we would be satisfied with a visit to Companion Pet Hospital to see Dr. Maloney. It turns out there is good reason for any wait between calling and getting an appointment, and if the hospital had not currently been accepting new patients, it would still have been well worth calling back at another time to get into their service. Their hours are generous and the practices and prices harken back to when veterinarians were not in the "glam and fad health care" industry, a most welcome discovery.I am a stickler for needing a vet that has great diagnostic skills, full services (x-ray, surgery, etc.) and the ability to really integrate medical information with practical application. Very fortunately, that is exactly what I found. Dr. Maloney has an encyclopedic knowledge of companion animal medicine, consults and interprets complex medical data fluently, and made my jaw drop open a number of times with his grasp of what I can only call "practical and rational intuitional observation." He also has a rare extra level of knowledge about performance dogs that gives him added insight into physical structure, movement, nutrition and disease systems.I was invited to participate in the exam process, taught what I needed to know, and given the tools and medicines we needed to correct our dog's problem. Of course, we appreciate the friendly, skilled and efficient staff and Dr. Maloney's deft handling of our pet. But I was most impressed that they go even farther beyond that to also deliver medical care of the highest level. And that is why we are very pleased to transfer our pets' care here, and very grateful to have found someone with 20 years' experience in this area who also has very obviously satisfied clients, us included.

Dr. Shetty has been our "vet-of-choice" for many years. He's known many of our dogs and cats on a first name basis for one reason or another. Recently, Dr. Shetty gave me a HUGE discount on surgery he performed on one of our precious cats, Oreo...Along with his personable bed side manner, Dr. Shetty currently has a receptionist/"everything-else-on-the-job" person named Desiree that has helped me tremendously with my extreme emotional state when I happen to lose a baby to the rainbow-bridge. Her special and caring words have helped me so many times, often so many days, after the loss of one of my pets. With Desiree, I honestly can call and talk to her, cry to her, or anything else -and she is always available and patient. Thank you Desiree and Dr. Shetty..for all you've done! (Also want to thank his previous receptionist-etc., Melissa, who was always very kind as well!)

My granddog, (standard poodle) just had surgery today. Dr. Shetty and his able assistant Melissa did an outstanding job. She had cysts I wanted to have removed. When I first visited to get Phoebe checked, Melissa noticed that her she had gum problems, too. I would never have noticed that. I felt the price was VERY fair, and their treatment of Phoebe was very caring and compassionate. THANK YOU, Dr. Shetty and Melissa. I now trust Phoebe in their care now. Please check them out.

Very professional and fair priced. Doctor saved my dog, he had a seizure. Doctor worked over time to help. And called to make sure my (family member) dog was fine after hours. I highly recommend this Vet. I give him five stars!

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
