This veterinary clinic has been spot-on each time I have brought my cat there. They used to be a first-come-first-served facility, then they changed to appointments only . They offer vaccine clinics and low cost care for your furry pets. They have rotating veterinarians who are professional, kind and caring. They give you a full estimate of care with various levels of prices. It is nice to have a choice for your pet's care because often it comes down to finances. I highly recommend this place for anybody who wants quality care for a great price.

I was referred by a friend who had been using the clinic for years. They are absolutely wonderful. You can tell they love the animals, and they spend time talking to you about your pet. The staff has been there for years and are also very knowledgeable. Dr. Buntrock is a fantastic diagnostician and is very caring and trustworty. I can't recomment them too highly. Their prices are reasonable and they don't try to get you to spend unnecessary other places I have been.

They were the best here! The price of the exam and procedures we had done could have been costly but it was made affordable. We had a miscommunication and didn't pick up our dog before closing, and they waited until we came all the way down 30 minutes later. They are great here we really appreciate them saving our dog!

The staff and Veterinarians at San Juan are caring, kind, and truly look after the animals and their human families. We have been patients for over 20 years and highly recommend them. They do not perform unnecessary treatments and take all the time needed for each family!

Sadly, because of inoperable tumors we had to bring our beloved cat, Cookie, in for the last time. Thanks to the staff, as they let all four of us be in there to hold him, saying our goodbyes and be there with him the whole time. I was thankful.

I have had a very good experience with this pet hospital every time I have taken my animals here. The prices are some of the lowest prices I found. The Veterinarians and employees have all been very helpful and nice.

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
