4 Corners Animal Hospital
Absolutely incredible vet in every way. I cannot recommend them enough as they are some of the most compassionate and understanding people that I have ever had the pleasure knowing. That coupled with the sheer amount of knowledge and education possessed in one location speaks volumes as to their services. My entire family (parents as well as others) and friends all take our pets there as they truly earn your trust and respect. Every single aspect of any visit will be explained to you in detail, and they are beyond accommodating if you need to be seen with no appointment in case of an emergency. While I admit that I have never been to a vet that I find bad and all have always given me positive experiences, Four Corners Animal Hospital is at the top for the best, and I am more than happy to take my furry loved ones to them for care.

Royal Oaks Veterinary Hospital
Love this vet! I've grown up with cats my entire life and have moved at least 20 times around the country. Never have a found a vet that has been so attentive to the needs of my cat(s). Both the Drs and the vet techs here treat my cats like they were their own. They call to follow up when necessary, they fit me in when I have an emergency and love on my cats every time they see them. I couldn't ask for a better vet nor would I ever take my cats anywhere else. ever.
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
