Clarksville Animal Hospital
We ave been going to Clarksville Animal Hospital for years. The care that Dr. Gough takes with our pets is impressive, He really takes and interest in our pets well being and teaches us something new on every visit. Our pets are very important part of our lives and I am glad we found Clarksville Animal Hospital to help us care and tend to them. Katie our eldest lab is enjoying life a hole lot more dealing with her hip pain now that Dr. Gough is doing laser therapy for joint pain. I cannot recommend Clarksville Animal Hospital enough, from the appointment setting to the office visit I have never felt rushed, always taken the time to explain the care needed and things to watch for. I do not write many reviews but feel compelled to tell everyone what a great experience, what a piece of mind to know that there is a place to go for pet care.

  • 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

  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting 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
