Hope Veterinary Clinic
If you love your pet, go to the Hope Vet Clinic! My English Bulldog suddenly went lame in back leg. I took her to my normal vet in East Columbus who performed X-ray, found nothing wrong with the bones, gave me pain medication & an anti-inflammatory, charged me $250 & referred me to animal hospital in Indy. No instructions for care whatsoever. I took her to Hope Vet Clinic & they diagnosed FCE injury, taught me how to perform physical therapy & treated her for all of her physical ailments my original vet left untreated... such as ear & yeast infections, dry eye & morbid obesity. Four weeks later she's walking again, has lost ten pounds on new food diet, no body odor, no itching & no more PAIN from bleeding tail, swollen ears or staph infection! I didn't have to tell Dr. Dimple Hall what was 'wrong' with her, she told me! My original vet led me to believe there was no cure for her allergy-related issues! My only regret is that I didn't take her to the Hope Veterinary Clinic sooner!

No instructions for care whatsoever. I took her to Dr. Dimple-Hall at Hope Vet Clinic who diagnosed FCE injury, taught me how to perform physical therapy & treated all of her physical ailments my original vet left untreated... such as ear & yeast infections, dry eye & morbid obesity. Four weeks later she's walking again, 20 lbs lighter as of result of new food diet, no itching & no more PAIN from bleeding tail, swollen ears or staph infection. I didn't have to tell Dr. Hall what was wrong, she told me! My original vet led me to believe there was no cure for her allergy-related ailments, aside from steroids! My only regret is that I didn't go to Hope Veterinary Clinic sooner!

This clinic saved my chihuaua's life when she got really sick. I had been to a different vet and he could not figure out what was wrong with her. I will always be grateful to these docs! Cindy Reed
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
