This is where to take your loved ones. My dog Jamie is very special to me and he has special needs due to his age. He deserves and will only get the best care. That's why I take him to vetXpress. They are very near my mother's house and I am always in the area. The staff is beyond wonderful. The doctors are great and everyone there definitely love their patients. I live about 30 minutes away but they are worth the drive. If you want your little angels given the best care, go here. They deserve the wonderful service vetXpress gives.

Dr. "E" and his staff are WONDERFUL! I recently brought in a stray cat to their vet as a first time customer. They were friendly and very knowledgeable but most if all they took excellent care of my sick kitty! While things didn't look promising for this little kitty, they stayed positive and confident in their recommendations to treat her. They discussed options and gave me the info I needed to go forward in her care! It's been 2 weeks now and this little kitty is still fighting and things look promising. The staff follwed up with me to check on her status after every visit. It is obvious through their concern and interactions with the animals that they care. They accept appointments as well as walk ins, which is great for those emergenc, last minute appointments. They are also open until 6pm on Saturday! I highly recommend this vet!
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
