I have been going here for almost 2 years now and have nothing but good to say about these folks. I have only had to wait a while once and that was because the place was packed. I am very particular who I let care for my dog because he is family as far as I'm concerned. The staff has been very kind and considerate. I recommend Northgateway to my friend and co-workers all the time. I read the other reviews and am stymied as I have never had such an experience, and I feel so sorry for them. With all my dealings with them I have been very satisfied. Maybe they might have had issues before, and if they did, they have done whatever it took to correct them. I certainly trust my Chester with them.

I have been going here for years. They are seriously my all time favorite vet. It's a husband and wife team that are both vets there so you get that real homey feeling. The receptionists are extremely friendly and informative. My dogs are seriously actually excited when they go to the vets no joke. They wag their tails and lick the vets/receptionists faces so I know they also take care of my doggys AFTER I leave them there for grooming ect. Sad they no longer do grooming, but for everything else they're great! They seem to really care and have a love for animals. I recommend them to all my friends. Great prices too.

You will NOT find a more caring and compassionate staff than at Kanawha Boulevard Animal Hospital. Drs. Eric and Paula Lee are the epitome of professionalism and demonstrate a real love for all animals. The office and assistant staff are the top of the line as well, are friendly and fun. They not only help our Ripley but help Rip's 'parents' as well! ... LOVE these guys!

I've brought in my rabbit twice so far to get her teeth trimmed, and the staff here have been nothing been nothing but sweet. They've taken great care of my rabbit, and do an awesome job with her. Everytime we pick her up after they work on her teeth, she's so loving and ready to play. I believe ill be bringing her here for a long time to come. (:

It's always comforting to know that if I find an injured bird, turtle or any wildlife that Animal Care Associates is there to try to save them. I don't know what I'd do without them when I'm in a crisis. They're so nice and reassuring, wish I could give them SIX stars!

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Eaton, DMV and his staff. They are dedicated to taking the best care possible of your cat or dog. I have been taking my cats there about 20 years or more. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Reasonable costs.

I drive 2 1/2 hours from Hinton. I love these guys, from the front desk to the doctors. I've taken dogs, cats, chinchillas and reptiles, and have never had a reason to complain. They have gone above and beyond for me and my animals.

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
