LSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital
I have been using the LSU Vet Clinic as my primary caregiver for my dogs for the last 35 years. They are the absolute best at everything!!! They saved the life of 1 of my dogs 2 times within one year (dog with 9 lives). They use the lastest methods for whatever my ail your animal. They also care about your animals as if they were their own. I will always use LSU as my vet as no one can take better care of my animals.

Jones Creek Animal Hospital
I was shocked to see a bad review about my vet. Dr. S and her staff are some of the most caring and thorough people I know. They treat both my dogs with the utmost respect and care. All the while keeping me informed as far as updates, treatment choices, and their subsequent cost. As for being "overpriced"? Total BS. You want the best? These fine doctors can provide it to you and your animals.

We have been bringing our pets to hing to Drs. Lucie and Brett for years. They are just wonderful! The entire staff is so professional and personable. They really do treat the pets like family. The docs always explain every thing clearly, and the care they give our pets is outstanding. I can HIGHLY recommend Staring Plaza to care for your pets!

I love this office and all the Vets on staff there. They are awesome to deal with and always provide for all of my needs. They saw me for an emergency even when my dogs were not a patient there. Love Dr Susie!

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
