Centralia Animal Hospital
Both of my animals are cared for at Centralia and I always know they're in the best hands. They have convenient hours, even weekend hours. They've always been professional and courteous. My dog actually LOVES when we got to the vet because he gets loved on so much by the staff. It's always been a pleasant experience.

Centralia Animal Hospital
This was my Vet clinic of choice for 10 years. Have since relocated; if it were not an 8 hour drive to go back for appointments, I would still be going. The best care I could ever hope for two senior dogs, a rescued cat, and several rescued pups. Thanks Centralia for the top notch service every time!

Chester Animal Clinic
We have taken our pets to Chester Animal Clinic since we moved here in 2004. We have always been happy with the doctors, technicians and everyone who works there. They are professional, friendly, and really love their clients (the animals) they serve.
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
