ok;,our pets have been going here for quit some time , the vets are fantastic and very caring , the front desk and / or office staff, that's another story ,incompetent is only word that comes to mind , this is second time this year we have brought our yorkies in for grooming , vaccinations ect , both times we have caught vaccination errors , (good thing we keep records) this time we brought one in for a grooming ,we received a post card saying he needed only bordetella ,when we arrived they told us he needed several vacinnations,which of course we questioned ,the girl on the computer looked it up and CONFIRMED he only needed bordetella and distemper and they will fix it right away , when we returned, we were handed a bill for several other vaccinations that he had already had this year (at his annual), they were also the same vaccinations/tests that the girl on the computer just stated she had corrected, right in front of us!! , naturally we spoke to the owner (vet) and he credited most of it back, but rather than understand the seriousness that such errors can either make an animal seriously sick or cause death ,he made excuses for his computer system and office staff, I CALL BS (they have our cell and could have called at anytime ), are these animals being over vaccinated for profit or just cause his staff is incompetent ? either way; if any of your pets have been sick or god forbid passed away from vaccination's given here, please review your records just incase it was an error on there part , again we have all our dogs records and this makes the second time we caught this, yet and he still received vaccinations he did not need !!! so disappointed cause we really like this vet but our dogs are like are kids and wont risk there lives

We ���� kindness. They have saved the lives of 3 of our pets. In 99 during hurricane Floyd our dog walked on a blown over window. The glass severed a main artery on the back of her leg. They stitched her up & stayed with her during her recovery, through the storm!!!! I was so impressed. It was a hurricane and they stayed!!!! Years later my Am. bulldog ate a webkin, Ugh! He was dying. They did blood tests,urine tests ex rays and discovered they had to operate. Saved his life - the toy was lodged in his small intestines. Our cat a year later needed medical attention. She had kidney stones. She needed a special diet and medication. Saved her life too!!! ALL OF WHICH they allowed me to make payments. These people are good people. They have to do tests or perform surgeries. It's part of medical practice. Not every animal is going to live. People loose an animal and want someone to blame. Quite frankly I'm appalled at the negative comments. I refer them to everyone I know who has pets.

I have taken my animals to Beach Vet for several years now. Not only are they professional but they take the time to get to know your animal and its personality, I know that I can ask Dr Berglund what my options are and he will tell me what is best. They have saved the lives oof two of my cats and one of my dogs. I NEVER have a problem getting an appt. Yes, the bill is always more than I want to pay but I will NOT sacrifice care and knowledge for a cheaper bill. I trust my animal's lives to the vets and the team at Beach Vet and will continue to do so. Additionally, I have to thank Dr Berglund for his time and his commitment to the No Kill Movement in Manatee County. He has not once turned away from an animal in need of help.

I have been going to the Beach Vet Clinic for over 10 years.Dr. Jade and Dr. Crit are the best doctor's and the staff are soknowledgeable and friendly. They really do care about you and your pets. They treat your pets like they are their own. Dr. Jade never gave up on treatingmy Aussie and because of her efforts I am able to enjoy havingSmokey with me. I also have a cat that they are treating and Meg is still with me because of them. If you are in need of good doctors, caring, and knowledgeablestaff, cleanliness, and genuine, warm people then look no further, you have all of that & more at The Beach Veterinary Clinic.Bonnie D

To be honest the only reason I went was the free office visit. I needed a second opinion on my 13 year old kitty.The office is small and busy. I found the office staff dedicated and professional. Dr. Nancy was wonderful. I will happily recommend this office to anyone.

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
