Obviously we're disappointed to have someone disappointed in our service. A failure to perform diagnostics would only be because none were deemed necessary (obviously in error per this client) because our income is generated through diagnostics and solving medical cases. While I don't doubt that there are meds that are cheaper at Walmart, we don't have that buying capacity, and try to provide convenient medical pick up for a fair price. We have not heard from this client (we don't know who it is) so we haven't been given the opportunity, to my knowledge, to correct any errors we've made. I am glad that they talked with a veterinary internal medical specialist who seems to have gotten them the answers they need and hope their pet is doing better.

We love bringing our dogs here. They are always so friendly and helpful. They always know our dogs by name when we come in the door and it seems like they really care about them. Highly recommended for your pets.

I would recommend this animal hospital to anyone in the surrounding area. I used to bring my dog from Lafollette all the way to Clinton to be treated at this animal hosp.

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
