Chino Hills Small Animal Hospital
We have been taking our 2 dogs here for a couple of years. After receiving poor care from two other chino hills vets it has been such a pleasure to deal with chino hills small animal hospital and ALL of their staff! They have been so helpful and informative. Everyone we have dealt with from reception to vet assistants to the vets themselves have been so caring and nurturing! They all seem to be in a great mood I think because they are doing what they love! Their patience with my very stubborn dog is priceless! They have micro chipped one of my dogs so far and explained how to register the chips and submit the paperwork to our city for reimbursement which I had no idea was available! Recently they helped save our dog from a dark chocolate poisoning incident which I admit cost a pretty penny but they were professional and worked hard to help save her. I love this vet office NS the staff!

I have had to bring my fur baby here several times in the last month and had excellent service every time. They staff and Dr. Dunbar were very compassionate and helpful with my dogs issues.
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
