I have 4 personal pets, I'm active in animal rescue, and I used to work at a vet's office, so I have visited and am very familiar with many of the veterinarians in the Charlotte area. Independence Veterinary Clinic is leaps and bounds above all the others. I originally visited IVC because my dog needed an ultrasound and my current vet did not have an ultrasound machine. IVC had great ratings online and also quoted me a price about half of what every other vet did for an ultrasound so I decided to give them a try. I am so glad that I did! Dr. Michelle Bryan took so much time with me and my little senior chihuahua, Duke. She wasn't "in and out" like all the other vets I have seen in the past. She carefully explained to me everything she saw on the ultrasound, the reasons behind her diagnosis, and all of the costs and benefits of different treatments. She didn't try to guilty me into spending a lot of money, and she even helped me find the most affordable options. She and the vet techs were so kind and gentle with Duke. They were incredibly friendly and seemed to really care about my dog. Dr. Bryan called me the day after my visit to follow up and make sure I understood Duke's diagnosis and the different dosages of the several medicines and supplements he has to take on a daily basis. Then she called out of the blue a couple of weeks later to see how Duke was doing. She stated that the staff had been talking about chihuahuas which made her think of Duke so she just wanted to check on him. It is so refreshing to find a vet who actually cares about my pet and is more concerned about my pet's health than with making a bunch of money. I will now be permanently switching all of my pets' care to IVC. They are the most friendly, knowledgeable, and affordable veterinary office I have ever visited. I can't thank them enough for correctly diagnosing Duke and helping ensure that he will live a longer and more comfortable life.

We have taken our pets to Animal Medical Hospital for over 20 years. I think we paid for half the new building! We always know we will get cutting edge technology and excellent care there. The reason I don't give them 5 stars is because they are very expensive, and seem to order all kinds of tests and treatments that cost thousands of dollars when there really is no hope for the animal. We had a 3 year old Golden they diagnosed with lung cancer. Twenty-five hundred dollars and less than 3 weeks later, he was dead. We were paying his vet bills long after we lost him, and the vet said there wasn't much hope when he died. I think they pad the bill with unnecessary tests. Other than that, they are excellent vets. We are looking for a cheaper alternative, though.

I have taken my many cats, dogs and rabbits to Dr Michelle, Dr Bart and Dr Melissa for 9 yrs now. I had tried three other vets after moving here 10 yrs ago. Dr Michelle diagnosised my Mickey right away which explained the symptoms that the other offices couldn't. Dr Bart preformed the cancer surgery and Mickey has been completely healthy and is a 15 yr old man now. I trust all the all the Drs at IVC with my pets and and I am relieved to know that they are always there for my fur kids. Great office! All the techs really care about my pets too! ����

We love Brookdale Animal Hospital. I have two cats, both with pretty serious health issues, and Dr. Pressley and his amazing staff have been amazing! One of our cats has to go in twice a week for fluid treatments, and we are always greeted with smiles. You can tell they truly care about their customers and love animals. All around a great experience. I highly recommend!

Top notch Doctors and staff who gave amazing care to my very sick cat, Halloween. Thanks to Axy at the front desk for her help and the wonderful doctors, all of whom helped to put my mind at ease over what was a very, very sick kitty. Clean, bright, welcoming. It felt right the minute I walked in. Highly recommended.

I am new to Charlotte, so my pets needed a new vet. Dr. Bryant took good care of my dog and the kitten whom I adopted from them. She is very nice and makes a stressful situation more comfortable for my pets. The staff is friendly and helpful. I am happy that I found a good health care provider for my pets.

Thanks for great work you all have provided for my family and I. We have had to come in a few times this past year for the emergency services and have just recently utilized the boarding services. I know my dogs are receiving great care when we come to the Animal Medical Hospital.

Excellent service and staff. Dr. Pressley has a very personal approach and when any issue comes up, he contacts you personally to discuss the treatment options. We have 3 dogs, and all have received excellent care.
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
