Horrible Experience. We took our little MinPin to Reach on Sunday afternoon. She has diabetes and could not stop vomiting. We had all medical records with us to make the vet's job easier. Anyway, we waited about 1.5 hours to see Vet. after reviewing records and checking our dog she came up with a treatment plan estimate $1200 to $1500, said they wanted to keep overnight to test blood every 2 hrs. When told we could not afford this, she said "Well if you had Insurance" There were Ins brochures all around office. We asked the Vet to please take the most conservative approach till we could get our dog to Our Vet on Monday. She really wasn't to happy about this and told us we could also apply with Care Credit, a finance company that would defer interest for 6 months. We declined and finally after 4 hours of mostly waiting, we left with our dog receiving a shot for vomiting and antibiotic, since she had UTI. Total of $212...They have very expenxive overhead, state of the art equipment and if you can afford their prices, you will get high-end treatment. As for us, it was a miserable experience.

Fox Run Veterinary Services
Fox Run and Meg Presley don't just talk the talk - they walk the walk when it comes to truly caring for animals. You get the best for less than anyone else charges. It is perfectly clear that the animals - not the money - is their motivating factor. If you want a fancy, luxury environment, you won't find it here - that's not their priority. They operate on a first come, first served basis, so if you can't be patient and wait your turn, this is not the place for you. But I have always found it to be worth the wait - and the substantial savings, to take my pets to the truly caring folks at Fox Run. (And as if she wasn't already busy enough, Dr. Presley does volunteer stuff too.)

Took our shih-tzu their on a Sunday,He had gotten hit by a car.The doctor told us that his pelvis area and legs were completely crushed and that it would cost us approx. 7000 dollars and recommended a Dr in Greenville to try to repair him or it would probably be best to put him down because he would probably never walk again.As you can imagine the emotional state of mind she put us in.The next day I contacted our vet he knew exactly who to send us to, in Asheville.Needless to say it wasnt even close to that much and our beloved doggy is back to 95% and runs.

Dr. Wood and his crew are extremely professional and caring folks. Our dog required fairly invasive surgery for a cruciate ligament tear and Dr. Wood took lots of time to explain the injury and treatment options. Then, he did a great job doing the surgical repair. Finally, they provided great post-surgery information and advice that is helping us get her back to normal.

We have taken our little dog, Daisy, to REACH 3 times in the past 9 months. She is growing older and has some issues that cause her to plummet quickly. Each time, Daisy was handled with the utmost care and concern, as were we. Our highest regard and recommendation is given for this organization. We cannot shower them with enough praise.

Dr. Vigee is the finest veterinarian that has ever treated my many pets. Although I live in another county and can no longer use his services on a regular basis he remains my specialist and has my deepest respect. His brilliance is equal to his compassion and understanding. He has been a blessing to my life.

I recently took one of my cats to REACH at night. We got there around 10:00 pm and were taken right in. Kitty ended up having to stay two nights. Everyone there was kind, caring and very nice to us. They kept us updated. Thank goodness there's places where we can take pets after hours!!!

Charlotte Street Animal Hospital
Charlotte Street Animal Hospital is the best decision I've ever made. I am ecstatic to have found vets who are not only exceptionally skilled, compassionate and good communicators, but ones who willingly established a real partnership with me in the care of my most prized companions.

Dr. Vigee and Dr. Klesius have been our veterinarians for many years. They are both very thorough, great medical diagnosticians and very compassionate. The vet techs and front office are also wonderful! An excellent vet practice.
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
