    The upfront staff is very friendly and answered all of my questions. My dog walked right in the door and was greeted by the friendly staff. I was called when the surgery was complete for an update.

This is the second pet we have brought to you and both received first class attention. We are so happy that we have brought them here because of the great work you do. Thank you very much!

The staff knew why I was there and was able to talk to me about my pets issues. Told me to call if I had any further questions.

We brought our dog in about a week ago with some concerns about spots on his udnerside. From the moment we walked in to see if they had walk in appointments available, which they did, every member of the team treated us and our Bo with the greatest concern. I have been coming to this vet for at least 4 years and every visit they treat their patients and customers with the highest respect and personal service. All staff members seem to care greatly for the patients and families! This is one reason I am personally thinking of starting to work on becoming involved in this field of work :).

Northshore Veterinary Hospital
Horrible customer service. When I showed dissatisfaction with the way I was being handled the front desk clerk said: "We would be more than happy to transfer your records to another veterinary," with a snide tone. North Shore has horrible communication and follow through. They are for profit and there lack of customer service training with their front line employees shows. I have taken my business elsewhere as suggested by them because clearly my 6 years of business and on time payments meant nothing to them.

They were very friendly and managed to fit us in even though we were a walk-in guest on a Saturday. The staff answered all the questions promptly and were knowledgeable.
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
