Red Bank Animal Hospital
We have a Dog who hates going in the car. The Vet we were going to was far away from our house and so we researched Red Bank Animal Hospital as it is not even five minutes from our house. We had to take our dog in to get checked for possible Kennel cough and what we found on our first visit was THE BEST vet ever. They have what I call a Mascot named Reno. He is the cutest Doberman Pincher and when my kids kept wanting to look over the desk to see him the greatest Techs let him come out so my kids could love on him. (Ok I couldn't help but love on him too). Everyone was friendly and Dr. Connelly was so informative and made my dog feel so at ease, even when she had to get her Rabies shot. He gave us a prescription for antibiotic and when I went to have it filled, I had visions of it costing us over 100 dollars but the Pharmacist said no it is only 4 dollars. We had the best experience there. I would tell ANYONE and EVERYONE to go there. Thank you RBAH. If you read this, please give Reno a hug from all of us and a thank you to everyone there. =)

Red Bank Animal Hospital
I am new to the area, so when I needed to find a veterinarian, I went online to read reviews. Red Bank Animal Hospital is in a convenient location, (from my home), and it had the most positive feedback. I brought both of my dogs in for a check up and to address some concerns. The ladies at the counter were kind and helpful. Once in the examination room, the tech took her time with both of my dogs. Dr. Boggan spent a lot of time with us and was very thorough and even told me what we could do to lower the cost of the procedure my dog needed. Yesterday, I brought her in for surgery. I am very pleased with the care she received and I even left there spending less than I had planned. I will be returning to Red Bank Animal Hospital for all my dogs' future health needs.

This place was wonderful and the staff were very friendly. I took my dog there today to see about an injury she had developed over the weekend and they were able to get me an appointment the same day. I am new to the area and had not found a vet yet and I was more than pleased with our visit. I was also worried about expenses and was given different options of treatment and not pushed into something that was too expensive for me. They let me know how much each would be and let me make my own decisions. I would recommend this vet to anyone who is looking.

East Ridge Animal Hospital
I have had several dogs over the years and they took excellent care of each of them. I would trust them with my dogs life. I do have a parrot and I wouldn't bring her in there because that is not their specialty. You need to find an AVIAN certified vet for parrots and the closest one to date is in Atlanta. My doggies though, and my parents cats, are very safe in the hands at East Ridge Animal Hospital. They do take payments which is one of the things I love. I haven't had to do a payment plan thus far yet thankfully.

I have been going to East Ridge Animal Hospital for many, many years and it is the best! I have 3 dogs: a pomeranian, labradoodle, and minature schnauzer. Each veteranian there is very knowledgable, eager to educate, and take time to answer any questions I may have (I do tend to ask a ton of questions). I wouldn't take my furrbabies anywhere else!

I have taken my pets here for years and they have always been very good to all of them. We recently had to put down one of our dogs and they were very understanding and do care about your family pets and treat them like family. I would recommend them to anyone and would also like to say that the staff are wonderful caring people.

I've been taking my animals to Riverview for the past 18 years and they do fantastic work.
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
