We take our cat and dog to this clinic and have been very satisfied with their services. All vets have been kind and interested in doing all possible. Their prices are reasonable and they have even given me contact numbers on the weekend, in case our animal needed extra help on Sunday! Any negative writings are unfair about this clinic.

They did a good job when I took my dog to get shots. But recently I thought my other dog Roxie was pregnant and I took her up there to find out. They said it's too early to tell and then just last night she had 6 puppies. Nobody got any sleep.

I highly recommend this Vet. I did K9 Search and Rescue for well over 10yrs. Doc Bader always went out of his way to ensure the health of my partners. Dr Bader and his entire staff are warm and friendly to the owners and extremely professional with the animals. Bader has been my personal vet for over 14yrs now and will always be as long as I live in the area.

My mom started bringing our animals here when I was young. I'm now an adult, with children of my own, bringing our animals here. The staff is so great to my sweet pitbulls (other places said I'd have to muzzle them). I drive from Branson West to get my dogs their shots. I don't trust anyone else! My husband and I definitely recommend this clinic!

Worst vet I've ever dealt with. Avoid if you love your pets.

Awful vet. Doesn't care about animals and is condescending toward their owners when they ask questions. Avoid at all costs.

Vet is rude and rough with pets. Staff are not knowledgeable. Dr. breaks state law by refusing to write prescriptions to be filled elsewhere.

Every single time I have taken my animals into the Aurora Animal Clinic with Dr. Bader I have had issues. The vet is so unprofessional that I'm amazed he has any business at all. If you have a bully breed definitely don't take your pet there because he has a prejudice against them and doesn't care what the outcome or his treatment of them are. Also if you have a prescription from your pet be prepared to spend more there because they will not sign for prescriptions for online or through another company. Then they will lie to you and tell you they never received the information, the fax machine was broken, and finally that they just don't do that period. You can get it from them or not at all. 3 animals that I've taken there have been mistreated by this horrible excuse of a vet, strike out, I'll never go back there and I'd advise everyone else to avoid Dr. Bader too... at least if you care about your animals.
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
