I've been going to Dr. Riley for over 20 years and would never consider switching. Please don't be put off by the location. By not moving to a more upscale address, he keeps his prices affordable, which I truly appreciate. They can do everything a larger practice can and the folks there are great. He never pushes expensive procedures, rather he gives you all the options, and lets you decide the best course of action. An example of his awesomeness :) - many years ago, he had my sister's cat in care onsite for about a month (liver condition). He didn't give up on the cat, knowing that he could recover with time, and giving him that time without charging exorbitant rates for after hours care. Truly, what he charges was so little compared to other vets. Zack lived to be 17 (I regret that when he passed, due to timing, it was at the I-20 emergency vet, and not at Dr. Riley's). I hope he never retires :)

Gully Animal Hospital
My dog was really ill, & we wanted to get her seen asap. I called & they got us in within 40 minutes. We were afraid it was going to be crazy expensive because of how nice the clinic was, but the prices were very reasonable. They have awesome hours! They are open 7 days a week & until 11 pm M-F. They don't charge extra to come late or on weekends. The tech & vet were very calming (We were really worried.) and answered all our questions. She wasn't as sick as we thought. They were really great with our Peppy! We left knowing exactly what to do. I was very impressed! They took such good care of all of us!

I've been going to Dr. Riley since 1982 and wouldn't consider changing. He and his staff are caring and compassionate and have taken excellent care of my dogs (6) over the years. The care given to my last 4 dogs allowed me to enjoy their company for at least 13 years each. The two I have now love them as did all the others. If you're looking for a place you and your animals can trust and feel secure, you've found it.

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
