I bring both my dogs here. The staff are always so nice and helpful. I really like the way they and Doc really care about both of my pets. They feel like family. I always recommend them to all of my friends.

Ucan Spay Neuter Clinic
Best spay/neuter vets in town! They have so much experience due to the volume of cats and dogs that they see, there are no other vets in town that can do a better job than UCAN! I take all of our neighborhood cat strays there, and have had several dogs spayed/neutered as well. The incision is almost invisible and the recovery period was very short. They even offered free microchipping the last time I took my dog there. Discount pricing does not mean discount service. The staff was wonderful, and very patient with the last little diva that I took there. You can't go wrong with UCAN. I so appreciate them!

Animal Hospital On Mt Lookout Sq
This was by far my favorite vet, even though they were the most expensive. My dog was attacked and nearly died. When the antibiotics were not working I tried to make an appointment and they couldn't fit me in, so I made an appointment at a closer vet that could see her that day. So about a month later I make an appointment for my dog with the only vet she has had her whole life, five days later, the day before the appointment I get a call from the office manager saying that we are "not a good fit" and I can't bring my dog there. My previous dog's life ended there, my current dog has been there since she was a puppy. Half of the office staff know my dog's name when I come in. This was literally the only negative thing that has ever happened and they just threw me out.

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.

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.

I don't usually don't write reviews but I felt that this was important for people to hear. I encountered a situation where I and my dog of 15 wonderful years came to a road block that involved his quality of life and my ability to tolerate his declining health in spite of my efforts to keep him as comfortable as I could. I worked with Dr. Wright and Dr. Cable regularly trying to come to grips with the reality of my beloved guy's situation. Ultimately, in the best interest of my sweet Drew, I decided to have a humane euthanasia performed as I knew we were fighting a losing battle. I have never felt so understood and empathized with as I did working with Dr. Cable. She spent far more time and energy with me than I know she had and listened to my probably senseless rambling and tears. She treated me like a client with a loved pet, but more importantly she heard my words like a friend. I not only commend her and her staff on their compassion, professionalism, and their genuine love for animals (and their owners) but I wanted to extend a heartfelt and public thank you. The loss of my baby was devastating to me but Dr. Cable held my hand through the process and for her I have the utmost respect and gratitude. You and your staff are the genuine angels in the world and I hope to someday come back with a new furry friend. Thank you all so very much!

You declaw cats? Front and back paws? That is barbaric! Here is what The Paw Project has to say about declawing. MANY OWNERS GIVE UP THEIR DECLAWED CATS......Reported medical complications after a declaw can include: pain, hemorrhage, laceration of paw pads, swelling, reluctance to bear weight on affected limb, neuropraxia (transient motor paralysis), radial nerve damage, lameness, infection, abscess, tissue necrosis, wound dehiscence, incomplete healing, protrusion of 2nd (middle toe bone) phalanx, claw regrowth, scurs (growth of deformed claw segments), retention of flexor process of third phalanx, chronic draining tracts, self-mutilation, dermatitis, lethargy, palmigrade stance (walking on wrists), chronic intermittent lameness, chronic pain syndrome, flexor tendon contracture, and cystitis (stress-associated bladder inflammation). WATCH THE PAW PROJECT DOCUMENTARY DO NOT DECLAW YOUR CAT, YOU WILL BE SORRY, AND YOUR CAT WILL SUFFER, IF NOT TODAY, THEN LATER.

Lewis Animal Hospital
Dr Polasky is not only an outstanding veterinarian; he is very compassionate and takes the time to get to know his patients (and their human families). It makes all the difference in the world. He has overseen the care of two of our family's pets (for over 20 years, collectively), and we wouldn't want to go anywhere else! Thank you, Lewis Animal Hospital!

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.

Beware, high charges and miss diagnosis of dogs problem. Brought my dog to them for a year and a half and they kept selling me vitamins and prescribing antibiotics when my dog had severe mange.; Insisted on telling us the dog had liver failure and that it couldn't be mange, thousands of dollars later, and I had dog tested at dermatologist.
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
