Antioch Animal Hospital has proven in a short time to be one of, if not, the best to date. Not only where they friendly and caring from the start with both myself and Mya, but have proven themselves to be experts for more extensive visits.Mya recently had surgery for both a Spay and Gastroplexy (tying the stomach to prevent Torsion, or twisting of the stomach from bloat). A surgery I was reluctant to do, but as I lost my Great Dane recently to Torsion, it was something I felt needed to be done. Dr. Garvey put me at ease from the start, and over the past 2 weeks, has proven to not only be an exceptional doctor, but someone who is kind and caring to my dog, and always available to take my questions.In Summary, I could not be happier with the care provided. The facility is a clean as any hospital I have ever visited, their staff is exceptional and caring, and the Dr. Garvey is fantastic!!!

I absolutely love this place! I've only really dealt with Dr. Garvey she is one of the most kind and thoughtful vets I've ever met. I've only been here for my ferrets so far but I will be coming back to take my two dogs to her for check ups and shots in about a week. So far she has come to be the only vets I trust with my animals. I'm moving soon as well and I know it's going to be extremely difficult finding another vet like her because she's absolutely one in a million, she will do just about anything to help an animal in need of medical attention and I'd honestly consider driving halfway across the country to bring my animals to her.

I am new to the area and thought that I would try this place out with my new puppy. The front office staff was very friendly and helpful. They were able to make suggestions on training and they even showed me how to brush snookies teeth. We saw Dr. Passarella. He was very nice and snookie loved him. He gave her a shot that the breader had not given her and we even set up an appointment for her to get spayed next month. I am so happy to have found a great vet in my new town! I highly recommend the Antioch Animal Hospital to anyone
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
