Have been taking my 1 year old boxer and beagle fur babies here since they were puppies. If you want high quality veterinary medicine without unnecessary frills, this is the place for you. Our first visit we realized how much we were overpaying for Petsmart vet services... there is no point. Dr. Rose and staff are friendly and always make time for us without long waiting. They have a pharmacy you can order from online, and medicines usually arrive within 2 days. The groomer is super friendly and patient with my very barky hound dog who doesn't like grooming-- not to mention he is always dirty because he enjoys dirt. The building is older and could probably use a remodel, but honestly I could care less because I'm charged fairly, it's clean, and only the services matter to me.

Chittenden Veterinary Clinic
I brought in a 2-week old kitten. Dr Weisel was informative, gentle and comforting. I was able to get in to see him that very day. Very accommodating, very nurturing and caring practice. Highly recommend!

I walked in with my kitten just for some vaccinations, since the breeder told me he needed them. I was a little hesitatnt of the area but i'm glad i walked in. There was no wait time and the staff was great. They took the time to answer all my questions and recommendations they explained thoroughly. They were not pushy on what they wanted to do and gave me many options to work with since I had a strict budget to adhere to. I'll be back in a few weeks for our next set of vaccinations, thank you Dr. Rose and staff :)

Dr. kooner believed in putting down most animals to start. Now he has sold the business and they now have a completely new requirements for those who visit. I have been taking my dogs in for grooming and the new vet requires a good half dozen shots BEFORE a grooming can be done. No one was informed of the new take over and many cannot afford the extra cost of shots. Beware!!

Nekic Ken DVM
We have an aging miniature Yorkshire Terrier who was suffering from a systemic infection and severe dehydration. After visiting TWO other vet clinics in the Westerville area, she was showing very little improvement, and we were quickly running out of patience and resources to afford required daily trips (with a frail animal in frigid temperatures) for office sessions for IV fluids, just to keep her alive. THEN, we found Dr. Nekic. He arrived at our home late in the day after we contacted him, and though it had obviously been a long day with many other appointments, he stayed with us for hours to stabilize our furbaby, and make her comfortable, all while educating us about her further needs to assure a full recovery. It was a pancreatic issue, and treatment included THE CORRECT combination of hydration, antibiotics and a careful probiotic treatment of her digestive system. I credit Dr. Nekic for saving our sweet little creature's life, and I can’t recommend his service enough. :-)
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
