Fambro Veterinary Clinic
I've been going to Fambro for about 6 yrs now and we couldn't be taking our pets to a better vet. My husband and his family have been going alot longer than that and love him as well. Thanks Staff for all you do!

Fambro Veterinary Clinic
I've been taking my pets to Dr. Fambro for a little under a year now. The staff is super sweet and always happy to see us and they treat our pets with the same love as if they were their own. My 4 yr old loves going to the clinic with her dog and talking to Dr. Fambro about the different pictures in the clinic. Thank ya'll for great service.

Fambro Veterinary Clinic
I took my daughters 3 month old guinea pig into Dr. Fambro because of a possible respiratory infection. Dr. said he didn't have a lot of experience with small pets but to go ahead and bring in. The vet proceeded to give our guinea pig a shot of amoxicillan which killed it within 2 minutes of the shot. We where devastated !! Asked if it was because of shot and he said no he was just sick.....he was not that sick. Then proceeds to charge me $45 for visit. I went online to check and see about the shot and first thing I read is that any PCN or antibiotics are toxic and you should never give to guinea pigs. He could have taken a minute and looked up the information himself since he was not experienced in small pets....but he didn't !! I printed off all info and sent him a letter requesting refund ....with no response !! Not only should I have not paid but he should owe my child a new guinea pig. Since then I have heard a lot of stories of animal deaths at his clinic. Will never recommend him or his clinic. He may be a nice person and been a good vet in the past....but its time to retire !!!
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
