Park Plaza Animal Clinic
Dr. Stephens and her whole staff is AWESOME!!!! I have been taking my pets to her for at least 13-15yrs. My sister had referred me to Park Row Animal Clinic when Dr. Stephens and I believe the other Dr.'s name was Dr. Johnson was there. I had a dog that had been hit 2 times on Park Row and the Animal Control Guy that showed up told me it would be best if I put him down due to the extensive injuries he had... my sister said no-way... take him to Park Row Animal Clinic (she had been taking her cats there for a few years prior to this incident). Well unless there is an absolute emergency & I can't reach Dr. Stephens, I won't take my animals to anyone else. They have cared for my babies since they were old enough to leave their momma's. I have 2 dogs now & they get so excited when it's time for their regular check-ups and shots, they love going to see everyone. Dr. Stephens is very honest and affordable. You always know what to expect as far as cost, and if you check around you will find she usually has lower cost than most other Clinics. She & I have been through a lot of serious medical issues with my pets, and I was not easy to deal with, but she always returned my calls or had someone call me with whatever information I was needing. She has incredible bedside manner with all of the animals (not just mine). She treats them as if they were her own and there is a lot to be said about that, you can tell that she loves what she does and you can also see that with everyone that works there. I highly recommend her to each and everyone of you that are looking for the best care you can get for your pet's. I have never had a negative experience with anyone in that clinic, and they all are very loving & gentle with my dogs. I consider them my family, You will not be disappointed. If Dr. Stephens was to ever relocate, you can be sure I will go the distance to continue having her care for my pet's. She and her staff go above and beyond. I will say that sometimes you will find her running a lil behind schedule so you may have a small wait period past your scheduled appointment. She doesn't rush in and rush out, she actually takes the time to hear your concerns and answer any questions you may have. She is worth the wait (it's always a reasonable time frame). Just go check her & her staff out... you will be impressed!

I 20 Animal Medical Center
Took my dog in last week cause he coughed blood. Couldn't give me answer as to why other than he may have coughed hard and a blood vessel bust. Did all kinds of xrays and test. They did great fluid which had built up in his lungs and gave him a shot. Also gave me all kinds of antibiotics. He is doing much better and I appreciate how they call to check on your pet. However it seemed like they wanted to get him in when I said he was doing well. Vet called and wants me to bring him in again and see about getting more medicine....yeah...seems like they want more money. Plus forget about trying to get a hold of them on a Saturday. The vet casually strolls in at 11:30 and had to see several pets before mine cause of an emergency. That I understand and was okay with. Just wish they gave a better idea of when you could get your pet. I left my house at nine and could not get him until after 1 PM cause the vet would not let him leave until she saw him. I was told he was doing well so I didn't get why I couldn't just talk to the vet tech. Would also be nice to know the doctors hours. Seems like I was on their time the entire time. Communication is either great or crap.

The technician that helped me and my two dogs today was fantastic. She was sweet, patient, and made me feel very comfortable with my dogs being there even though one of them has a complete melt down every time we go. Montana, the tech, got on the floor with my dog and pet him till she felt like my DOG was comfortable enough to be worked on. I did not feel rushed. I did not feel like a burden. I was welcomed. Montana even asked if she could help me to my car since my hands were full with two dogs and papers from my other adopted dogs previous vet. Not only did I have a great technician today, but even my veterinarian, Dr. Riley, was wonderful. If I had any questions she was sure to get them answered. All of my concerns were top priority as well was the health of my two pups. I've been coming here for three years and even though I've moved two hours away, I still continue to come here because I genuinely love the personality of the people who work here.

Matlock Road Veterinary Clinic
My wife and I love this vet! We picked them for our new puppy, Callie, because we thought we were moving to the area and we fell in love with everyone there! We ended up moving into a new place in northern Fort Worth, and we decided that it was too far to travel if there was any type of urgent situation. We loved the way that Dr. Bob handled Callie and handled us as new puppy owners. Such sweet people work here and they are just so full of love! My wife and I HIGHLY recommend this vet to anyone looking for a kind and patient staff to care for their pets! On a more practical note: Great prices and an honest doc. Dr. Bob hooked us up with samples as often as he could and was very straight forward about what tests he needed or didn't need to run to get Callie on the road to recovery (she came from a shelter and had a few issues). He also discussed all prices with us before running any tests. Great guy. Awesome businessman. Fantastic prices.

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 :)

Matlock Oaks Animal Clinic
Dr. Frizzell is the only one to see. I took my furbaby in and she saw Dr. Mayo for the first time. He walked in defensively, would not allow her to sniff and tried pushing her back with a file. Of course my dog felt uncomfortable and started barking and whining. He then told me to get her, which I did, he still did not allow sniffing or greet her. She began to bark and growl at that point. (FYI - She has NEVER reacted this way to a person before) He left the room and the tech came back telling me I had to muzzle her or he wasn't coming back in. I am absolutely baffled at any vet that would approach an animal that way and then blame them saying they are "aggressive". I am seriously considering switching vets after this experience. I will give them another shot with my dog seeing only Dr. Frizzell and hope that in the future everything is as good as her previous visits with him.

I met Lisa Houston 4 years ago when I adopted my rescue dog "Sammie". She was 3 months old when I got her and I wanted to make sure she had the best training available. Lisa is a total dog person. She loves teaching "owners", how to make sure that you have a best friend for life in your dog. Her training really works! Dont be fooled by Petco & PetSmart and others that utilize "treat" training. This is a bad habit to start. Your dog wont do anything without receiving a treat. Not a good way to train. Even after 4 years, and successfully completing "advanced" & "off-leash" training, Sammie and I still attend Lisa's Saturday morning classes. The dog loves it and it keeps her training fresh and on-going.Bottom line: I would trust Lisa with my pets without question. If you give her a chance to help you with your pet, you wont be disappointed.

Arkansas Browning Animal Clinic
My puppy got Parvo when he was very small & young, which is a bad thing. Thank God they got us in right away! The treatment is expensive & we could have still lost him. We had to try, so we paid for them to keep him 3 days & nights. He ended up doing extremely well! Thank God! Dr Lippett took him home with her over night, which made me feel much better! We wouldn't have been able to afford an emergency clinic, so they were a godsend! He did so well that they sent him home early & refunded me the difference. They could have kept him & the money, but they obviously love the animals! He is growing and doing great! They were so kind and supportive! They were honest, but still helped me stay positive. We are eternally grateful to have our little boy happy & healthy! They obviously love animals a lot!our little boy! home

Arkansas Browning Animal Clinic
I brought my kitten here after he came to us. He started losing his fur on his neck and under his chin. First thing I did was a google search of feline hair loss (bad idea), of course I thought he had mange. I brought him in and the crew looked him over and we discovered he had ear mites, not a big surprise since he was born under an old hood of a car out in someones back yard. They cleaned up his ears and gave us some drops to help rid him of mites, and within a few days his fur was already coming back. When it came time to have the little kitten neutered, we were able to have him vaccinated and snipped without taking out car loan. They were very thorough and never acted like they just wanted our money.

I 20 Animal Medical Center
Absolutely love I-20 Animal Medical Center. My kittys always receive the upmost professional health care. Dr. Welch is incredible and has a great bedside manner. You can really tell she cares about all of the fur babies and their humans. All of the staff is professional, knowledgeable and caring. I can not say enough good about them and highly recommend them. One of my kittys had a complex problem, he has been being treated for over the past 6 months. Dr. Welch was immediately able to assess the issues and start a treatment plan. My kitty is doing super now because of her. On our last visit, one of the assistants even took the time to trim his nails. I am beyond impressed.
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
