Cedar Rapids Animal Hospital
All 3 vets are knowledgeable and caring. We've managed several medical conditions (diabetes, gastrointestinal) through them. They work with us to decide the best path forward. The staff is great too. Re: cost...veterinary medicine has gotten expensive, with new techniques and modern equipment. I find the vets to be quite willing to follow a more conservative approach with many medical conditions, especially if the alternatives are costly or invasive. I like that they use the safest techniques for surgery. I don't think their prices are out of line for the area and the level of care they provide. I've had lower cost vets at a previous location - they provided a lower level of care as well. For my fur kids, I'm willing to pay reasonable costs for their health and safety.

All Pets Veterinary Clinic
I would recommend them to ANY pet owner out there. You would be doing your fur-baby a good service by taking them there
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
