Ann Bowers DVM
We have 6 dogs: Belgian Malinois, 2 Golden Retrievers, Border Collie, and a Beagle. Dr. Bowers is the most incredible vet I have EVER had for our dogs and there is not a close 2nd. Her surgical procedures are beyond reasonably priced and she does the absolute finest work. Could not be easier to work with as long as you aren't looking for someone to coddle you or your animal.Our dogs have had previous surgical procedures from some newer "feel good" vets and not only was Dr Bowers WAY less expensive, but the stitch & surgical work was perfect in comparison and they recovered quickly and without setback.WARNING: As an owner, if you need warm an fuzzy feelings with a pat on the head for having a pet, look elsewhere. If you want an old-school, HONEST vet practicing GREAT medicine and care.... Go see Dr. Bowers.If there were 10 stars it wouldn't be enough. We have dealt with this vet for 10 years and she genuinely cares for our pets and family's well being. She has added years to our pets lives and we could not be more pleased! No nonsense, but great vet!!!!!
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
