Ceres Veterinary Clinic
I have lived in many places in CA and find this vet to be the best. They are caring, knowledgeable, even the receptionist tries to answer all questions and if she can't she gets an assistant or the vet to answer them. I had to put one of my dogs to sleep and they were so caring, they even sent a card of condolences. They called and checked up on another one of my dogs after his surgery and they always remember their names. He is a very skiddish dog and doesn't really like anyone and growls. They never tried to muzzle him and he didn't even growl at Dr. Bettencourt. I was shocked and very pleased at how he handled him, he has never liked a vet before( he's 14 years old). Both vets I have dealt with are great and caring and always want to hear about my observations. Their prices are also fair. I no longer live in Ceres and still make the 45 minute drive to take them there. My dogs are like my kids, their health and happiness is very important to me.

American Pet Clinic
We took our 4 year old German Shepherd to their vaccine clinic. We were very happy with what we saw. The patients were well respected (both the animals & their humans). Their prices are very reasonable, much more than other Vet Hospitals. From what we saw, the office is very clean. Their staff is very welcoming, especially to new patients, which we are. The price for their Vaccine clinic was great, much cheaper than other Vet. Clinics. I've already started recommending American Pet Clinic to friends of my family who are Seniors. They'll use American Pet Clinic

I am so happy with this vet office they are very caring and affordable. I did a lot of research and chose this clinic based on other reviews. The office was very clean and all the staff was friendly and helpful. Dr. Basra is amazing. I took my dog in around 6 pm and the staff stayed late to perform immediate surgery on my boy. Dr. Basra does his best to keep the cost down while still ensuring the safety of your pet.

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
