VCA Sawmill Animal Hospital
With a diagnosis of FIP there's not much that you really can do, but still yet, with extreme compassion and the willingness to try and work out any possible options with regards to how comfortable you are in making a decision one way or another. They, through soft voices, still offered us ways to try to prolong our Baby Jewel's life even if it meant only for a few more days. I believe they could see the confliction we had growing in us and gently offered the last choice anyone wants to hear when you take your loved one to the Vet. Since seeing her in agony was not how we would have wanted to let her go, much less at a mere 6mos old...through tears and true confusion, we laid our Baby Jewel to rest. The group of loving & caring proffessionals overseeing our kittens care definitely made us feel like that day was more than just an office visit. It was more than a business transaction. That day they made us feel that it was most certainly more about LIFE.

Whitehall Animal Hospital Inc
The staff at this Animal Hospital is friendly and caring. Dr. Anne is a true animal lover and has a compansionate heart. She is a caring vet and will work in helping you get the best care for your animals. She will tell you like it is. If there are options she lets you know. I have 2 dogs and I drive about 25 miles to this vet because they are truly a caring team of animal lovers. I have used this place not only for the yearly checkups but for ilness and emergencies. Everytime they have the same consistant care. Just compasion and heart warming care for my animals. They office is clean and professional but not unfriendly. They have it balanced just right. The only time I have ever waited past my appointment time is when they squeeze me in for an appointment during their regularly busy day. Thanks Dr, Anne and staff for taking good care of Daphney and Cruise!

Dogs Only Medical Center
We have been taking our beloved Golden Retriever Rex to Dogs Only for several years and hold Dr. Prescott and her staff in the highest regard. The care that the Dogs Only team provides is nothing short of superior and we value the personalized experience we receive each and every visit. From major surgery to routine physical exams, I am confident that our pooch receives the best care from the best people and for that we are truly grateful. While I can't attest to the experiences of others, I without hesitation recommend Dogs Only as they possess the right people, knowledge, and expertise to provide unsurpassed care.A special thank you to Dr. Prescott, Sarah, Lori-Ann, and Kathy for all your dedication in what you do. This passion and drive is why the Dogs Only team is the best.

North Kenny Veterinary Hospital
We have had NOTHING but positive experiences with the veterinarians and all of the staff at North Kenny. We have been using them as our primary veterinarian in the Columbus area for the IGCA Italian Greyhound Rescue, Ohio chapter, for multiple years. They take excellent care of our foster dogs and many of our foster homes have become clients of them too because they are so awesome. I cannot say enough positive things about this vet clinic - they are simply amazing and TRULY and have the welfare of your pet as their priority.

I had recently moved to the area and was looking for a vet close to the house since we also had just adopted a kitten. When I told the Dr. my boy's ears seemed extra dirty, they discovered he had an ear infection and would need them to be packed. My scared cat was being so obnoxious, but the Dr. and his assistant/vet tech were so calm and loving. The vet tech was so sweet to my boy even though he was acting out. I will continue to take my pets there since the staff genuinely cares about animals. Thank you!

Pet Solutions of Columbus
Terrible mannerism: always has nasty attitude & never smiles or greet her patients. They do not care about us " dog owners" by they way they treat u by making u wait & changing hours during discount sign ups. I'd rather find a vet who cares about the "owner" too. I will not go back there after being locked outside waiting for 1 hour in the sun to find out the vet was taking only 1st 8 patients. Poor business ethics here.

MedVet Medical & Cancer Centers for Pets
It was 3 years ago with my 15 year old dog who was diagnosed with cancer and had to be euthanized. Dr. Ostecky was absolutely amazing! She shared compassion and care for my dog and myself. It meant a lot to me that she, herself, got choked up during the procedure and personally sent a sympathy card in the days following. She made some of the worst days of my life manageable. A big thank you to her and your staff!!

MedVet Medical & Cancer Centers for Pets
I recently moved here and met a vet-tech in my building that works for Capital Veterinary Referrals & ER Center. Being a "pet-sitter" myself, I need to know who's good. I went to the center to "check it out" and was impressed with the staff and cleanliness of the office. I wouldn't hesitate to take one of my client’s pets to them (if their own vet wasn't available).

Dogs Only Medical Center
As a hospital nurse of 17 years, I have dealt with endless "difficult dr.s." Dr Prescott is not one of them, by far. The Dr. & her staff spent extensive amount of time on education. Nothing was done to my dog without my consent, there were no hidden charges. The staff were so friendly that they felt like friends. I would recommend this place to anyone, no worries.

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
