Beaver Dam Veterinary Clinic
My dog was ran over on a Saturday night and I called them on a whim hoping they would have an emergency number listed, but I was pleasantly surprised when they answered and told me to bring her in. She was seen immediately, they are very conscious of price and are understanding. After the dog was evaluated he told me what the plan was and I asked for a quote so I knew what I was paying for and he provided it and went over it with me. Everyone was so nice and caring and the vet was so sincere and treated us so nice. We are now switching to this vet for all other care. No office visit charge for immunizations is such a plus!

I recommend this vet clinic to everyone in the area. I was a little hesitant when I saw the outside of the building but as soon as I stepped through the doors I was treated exceptionally. They not only treated me well but more importantly were very nice to my pets. They always try to give you the best deal for your money. They aren't like other vets that are out for your money. They really treat you great! Definitely worth the drive for me. 40 minutes one way!
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
