Blue Cross Animal Hospital
This is an exceptional veterinary hospital. I have been taking my dogs here since I moved to WNY 6 years ago. The staff has always been kind to me and my dogs. To say the vets and vet tech are competent would be vastly understating their abilities. Dr. Donovan and Dr. Hillegas provided a level of care for my very sick Golden that was so far above and beyond what is normally expected. The Doctors at this animal hospital have incredible foresight and take a very holistic approach to treatment. They don't request random unnecessary testing - trust me, I know, I have experience with vets that do this and Blue Cross Animal Hospital is not one of them. They have incredible humility and they treat their clients with the utmost respect. The treatment, care, attention and sincere kindness they have shown my dogs, and me, allowed my Hunter to have an amazing life far beyond what anyone could ever have expected. They took care of Hunter like he was their dog, like he was their family member and for this I will always be grateful to them.

Amherst Small Animal Hospital
I have to disagree with the review from someone stating they had lost pets here due to a poor surgeon. I know for a fact that there hasn't been any anesthetic deaths in the practice for oh about 20 years. The protocols and procedures they use are unlike any other. The owner even has a website where OTHER VETS can get the most up to date techniques for animal anesthesia. So either this is a FAKE review, or you have the WRONG CLINIC. I fully recommend ASAH and Pain Management Center to anyone who loves their furkids as much as I do.

Suburban Veterinary Hospital
Suburban Veterinary Hospital by far has the most caring staff and outstanding medical knowledge. As a multiple pet owner there is always some type of issue that comes up, And SVH has come through on all incidences. From the special needs attention of my skid dish dog when getting his nail trimmed to the compassion and love they ooze which makes our furry friends excited to be there.Prices very reasonable Caring staff Endless Love& Compassion Dedication & determination I would rate Suburban Veterinary Hospital 12 stars out of 5!

Sheridan Animal Hospital
I am actually shadowing at Sheridan Animal Hospital to get some hours for my vet school application, but I must say that this place is one of the best veterinary hospitals I have ever been to. I love that all the doctors and technicians are so knowledgeable about everything and work together very well. They are extremely polite to their clients and explain everything as clear as possible to answer their questions. I could not have asked for a better place to shadow, nor a better place to take care of your pets. Two thumbs up!

Killewald Small Animal Hospital
A star for the receptionist and one for the actual vets attitude , how ever the vet tech (i didnt get her name) she had long brown hair was very rude after my dog got neutered and his eye popped out of his socket while they were starting anesthesia, she was laughing and i asked her what was so funny and she said "oh nothing just the pathetic look on his face" by the way i was charged for them to put the eye back in.

Sheridan Animal Hospital
Best animal hospital in Buffalo as far as I'm concerned, and I've been to at least 4 in the area. All the staff and vets are really nice. I've had three dogs at this hospital and every one of them---two with life-threatening illnesses--have been treated as if they were family. There is genuine concern about the well being of my dogs. I feel their prices are average for the area, and in some cases, cheaper.

Blue Cross Animal Hospital
Taking my pet to Blue Cross was the best decision I could have made for her, and for myself. The receptionists are always friendly and attentive. There are multiple doctors on staff, all of whom have been extremely professional from the start. They are honest in their treatment but accomodating when it comes to budgetary concerns. If you are in the area, do not hesitate to bring your pets!

Amclare Veterinary Hospital
We highly recommend Amclare Vet Hospital; your pet will receive the best of care! Our dog has been a patient for many years. She's had countless well-doggy visits, knee surgery, and some visits for illness. We've been extremely pleased with Dr. Olson and his staff each and every time! You can tell that they love animals and what they do!��������

Buffalo Small Animal Hospital
I have been taking my dog, Sadie here for 10 1/2 years. Always received Excellent care there. On March 9 2016, I had to have Sadie, put to sleep, due to numerous healthissues and her age. Dr. Shine and her staff was so loving and caring to Sadie and me, when we needed them the most. I will never forget their kindness. May God bless them always.

Dr. Olsen is wonderful with all of the animals and has provided excellent care and goes above and beyond to do the most for your animal.
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
