This is Dr. Ackerman, responding to the post I recently saw from Rev. L. I am both shocked and dismayed at the allegations she posted. They are fictitious. I have not been in touch or involved with Lynn and her husband after last seeing them at my office in 2012. Whatever happened between the two of them (and any third party) was totally unrelated to me. I’m sorry that Lynn has had issues that clearly have caused her great pain. I hope that she will get in touch with me personally. We need to talk to each other honestly and respectfully and clear up whatever misinformation pulled my name into this issue.

My dog starts getting happy before we reach the parking lot. He had minor surgery and staff always calls to check on him when certain procedures are given. I have only good ratings with this vet&staff. I would never give bad ratings because of "personal" vendettas. To do such things would be very wrong and unprofessional. All the staff members give the animals genuine love and concern; with the best of care. I am going to refer other friends and relatives with pets.

We have NEVER had dogs that "enjoy" going to the vet until now. Our dogs scream with joy when they realize we are going to see Dr. "J". It seems that all the staff love animals and that makes us very comfortable when we have to board them. They keep our dogs healthy. Thank You.
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
