I took my Chihuahua there and they wouldn't treat her because she was barking at them and they were afraid she would bite. I believe they should know how to handle agressive dogs especially a tiny 4 pound Chihuahua. Pet-Co at Market Place in Antioch had no problem grinding her nails and even held her in their arms and drew blood for a heartworm check. Well I guess I'll have to go to Pet-Co from now on.

This a great vet clinic for exotic animals and pocket pets. We take our guinea pigs to this clinic and have been very happy with care they've received.

Love this vet!! They treat my pets like their own and are thorough. They take their time and do not rush you out the door. Every detail of my pets care was explained. Dr. Van even took time to show me that other organs in my baby were healthy and that he had good strong bones and assured me that we were taking good care of him. We could not ask for a better vet and would not take any of out pets anywhere else.
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
