Ferguson Animal Hospital
We live in Canada and while on a trip our dog got very sick, he seemed close to death to me. We found Dr Ferguson by fluke. She saw ourdog almost immediately when we walked in the door. Within minutes she explained the issue and that surgery was needed rite now. We explained to her that payment may be difficuktfor us to come up with rite away sincecwe were so far from home. Her response was and I quote "I'm going to save your dog anyways, we will figure out payment after the surgery". She had to remove a portion of our dogs intestine because of a blockage. He spent nearly a week in FAH. We visited him daily and witnessed nothing but love and caring from everyone there to all the animals as well as the pet owners. We were treated like family and Dr. Ferguson even recommended activities for my wife and myself to maintain a vacation vibe to our trip even tho we needed to remain in an area we never planned on visiting. Our dog came out of the experience fully recovered and went on to live a happy and full life. FAH didn't charge us anywhere near what we expected. Thier kindness to people they knew would not be return customers was unbelievable. We will never forget how well we and our Diamond Dogge were treated by everyone at FAH. If I could I would give 10 stars. Thank you FAH and Dr Ferguson. In my books there are none better.

I brought a kitten w/ an eye infection they said if the eye isn't removed then euthanize would be an option there was nothing else they could do and I was out the door. My coworker said gotoFisher Hollow, they gave meds within days her eye was healed. I wrote an email to ferguson about how upset i was for them telling me i could have it removed or euthanize. Mypoint is one of my cats couldnt walk today My vet was closed, so i wentto ferguson manager said,You brought your kitten here last year right? I said yes then she said "We read your email complaint and its really hateful So weve decided that we're not going to help your cat today, I said I was upset of how noncaring and nonchalant they were twds my kitten i said sorry for email. She said shed ask if any vet would help but before she did if I had $$ to pay treatment. I said yes she asked and said none of them want to help. Everyone should know better alternatives and know that Ferguson is NOT the place for your beloved pets welfare

This vet would not treat my baby because it was before thanksgiving. Told me use emergency vet. I will never use another vet who tells me this. Dr Ferguson was in on Thanksgiving and could have saved my baby. It was too late and she was put to sleep in my arms. If you can't be there then don't be a vet.

Not like any other... At first I was pleased and comforted that my dog would receive the best care possible AND that they offered a payment plan I could afford. Next thing I know they offer the program but do not mark your file or make further contact with you on the process. Then when you bring $250 down payment they give you attitude because you cannot pay in full but do not understand why you might give it back when you are treated poorly. Long story short my dog had surgery and I had to find another vet to finish the job of taking out stitches and THEY STILL GET THE MONEY. If you cannot pay in full you better take the initiative to figure it out yourself or you may get blindsided as I did. I would click NO STAR but you have to select at least one.
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
