Wheaton Way Veterinary Hospital
We have taken our two Beagles (Boogie and Allie) to Dr. Luttinen and his staff at Wheaton Way Vet for the past 10 ½ years. We have always received exceptional routine care. The office is clean and the staff is friendly and caring. Over the last four months I have discovered what sets them apart from other clinics though. In late December of 2012, we took Boogie and Allie in for an annual teeth cleaning. Wheaton Way Vet had discovered Allie had a heart murmur on a previous visit, so when they noticed that the heart murmur had gotten worse they decided to x-ray her prior to putting her under anesthesia for the cleaning. Upon x-ray they discovered an unusual growth on Allie’s left lung. Once the biopsy results came back it was determined that our girl had cancer. We were devastated, but Dr. Luttinen was confident that the cancer had not spread and that they would be able to remove it all. Surgery was performed and within 24 hours our girl was back home with us and is doing wonderfully. You would never know what she had been through just a few short months ago.Last Thursday we took Boogie to Wheaton Way Vet because he had been having stomach issues. His blood work showed low Albumin levels indicating that his body was not absorbing protein. Over the next few days Dr. Luttinen and his staff worked diligently to determine the cause of the low protein levels. Boogie was a very sick dog and during this time we were treated like family by Dr. Luttinen and his staff. Dr. Luttinen provided us with his cell phone number and we were free to call or text with any concerns while we were trying to determine the cause of our dogs illness. At one point Dr. Luttinen offered to take Boogie to his house overnight to keep an eye on him since they do not have staff on hand at night. They went above and beyond, including Dr. Luttinen and one of WWV staff members (Todd – THANK Y OU) coming in on a Sunday (they are closed Sundays) to run blood work to determine if the treatment we had decided to try was working. Thankfully it was and we still have Boogie with us. If it wasn’t for Dr. Dave and his staff at WWV I’m afraid the outcome would be much different.I honestly could not recommend a better clinic!

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
