I hated this place. No one introduced themselves as to who they were when talking to me and giving me info so I always had to ask. I thought the woman with tattoos on her chest and wrists was the vet tech but it was the veterinarian herself. I didn't know what was wrong with my dog and it turns out they didn't either yet they brought up the word "cancer" and tried to play on my fears and guilt me into spending lots of money on testing. They are unethical and I don't know why this facility isn't investigated. People in other fields are monitored all the time by administrative agencies (attorneys, physicians, bankers), why aren't they? I ended up paying $400 with no answers. Went to a regular vet and was told my dog just had dry skin. I'm seriously considering filing a complaint. They totally take advantage of people's emotions. When I said something about the amount to a vet tech she put her finger up not her lips in a "shhh" motion and said: "don't say anything too loud about the amount or they'll suddenly find hidden charges". They get a star for being open and a star for being on my side of town. Otherwise, worthless.

Based on my experience, the care here is excellent. And, yes, it will be expensive. That being said, I have to agree with the comment below that mentioned the cllinic's OBSESSION about being paid for services. Can't remember the exact details with one of my beloved dogs. I must have forgotten my check book and not had my credit card with me. The woman behind the counter (technician or DVM -- couldn't tell) wouldn't give me my animal to take home. I had to race around in my car to find an ATM (several miles away) and withdraw cash. Then return and fork over the money to the vaguely rude woman. The veterianarian I then saw when my dog was released apologized and said she hoped I didn't think they were holding my Labrador for ransom! This was about twelve years ago. I brought another beloved dog to the CARE center for treatment about five years ago. The medical care was excellent. However, all this time later, I do recall that one of the young women at the front desk was an incredibly cold and unsmiling bit h. I should have complained about her. I guess that's what I'm doing now.

I had to go there the other night for the second loss of my second cat, my Family, in less than a year. They were just as comforting, as kind, as accomodating, as caring as they were the first time with my girl. Dr Jeff Smith, Katie and Erika were helpful, supportive, quiet and so comforting. Even brought my boy a drink of water we asked for and they had a blanket for him to be cuddled in although we used our own. They were so kind and so sweet, and they gave me as much time as I needed with my boy before I had to let go. I highly recommend MedVet, and they have always done a good job... I suppose because I don't want to download this app for this site, I can't leave an official review - but consider this a 5-star review for MedVet on RedBank Rd of Cincinnati.

I have been a MedVet client since at least 2002, traveling to the Columbus office for care not available in Cincinnati. I was very happy when MedVet opened its Cincinnati location and was able to return my cancer dog to her original oncologist in 2011. MedVet has been nothing but professional to me and my pets. I expect a high standard of care for a specialty and emergency practice, and that is what I get. I also get a partnership with the veterinarians who have examined and treated my pets. They consult with each other on their cases, so we get an even better medical perspective and value. I am versed in veterinary care so know what we are getting the real deal. Highly recommended.

Park Plaza Animal Hospital
I have been taking my pets to Park Plaza Animal Hospital for over five years. The staff are always extremely helpful and friendly, both on the phone when I have scheduling and billing questions, as well as in person when we bring our pets in for checkups or treatment. The doctors have always treated my pets very well and made me feel comfortable going over any treatment options when necessary, making sure I understand what is needed and how I want to proceed before taking any action. I have never had a bad experience at Park Plaza, and would recommend them to anyone who values having a friendly local business who cares about your pets as much as you do.

I've had both good and bad experiences with MedVet. Unfortunately it seemed to depend on which vet was taking care of my pet. While two of the vets were very caring, competent and honest one of the vets wasn't honest with me and I spent a lot of money on a pet that never got well. He performed numerous tests which I wouldn't have had done had I known my pet's prognosis. Be sure to ask questions about the big picture - don't put your pet through unnecessary stress and pain if you don't know the chances of survival.

I find the comments below disturbing. We took our little rescue dog to them because his left rear knee cap became dislodged and wouldn't return to its original position. Very painful for him. We were seen rather quickly and had the surgery done the next day. We were give the cost of the procedure up front and any recurrent visits. We expected it to be expensive since we did not have any pet health insurance. Please don't give these folks a hard time. It is a business you know.

I have taken several of my dogs there to see the specialists. I have been treated with the upmost respect and honesty. I have had a doctor tell me when test were not necessary and when they were. They recently saved my dogs life. The surgeon was phenomenal and her internal medicine specialist is the best ever. I feel blessed and lucky to have these wonderful people helping my fur babies and myself.

Its all about the MONEYTook my dog in for a cut on her foot on a Friday night paid 350.00 for a bandage and a couple of pills was told it should be OK, bandage fell off the next day I re-bandaged her myself.The following Monday we took her to our vet she got 5 stitches and went back for 3 visits,and it cost about half of what they charged.

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
