I will never go to this place again. I took my cat here and told them not to do anything with my cat ontil they call me to consult with me on what there going to do with him, well they did not and decided to do everything with him and give him shots and antibiotics and who knows what and they charge me up with a big bill. I got very upselt and told them that wasnt the plan and all they can tell me is well you csnt take your cat till you pay so i have no choice but to pay but will never go here again.

I was extremely dissatisfied with my experience here. I took my 2 young male cats to be neutered here and when making the appointment I specifically told the lady at the counter that I only wanted the neutering done and the rabies vaccine. She told me it would be approximately $45 per cat for those services to be done. Well when I went to pick up my cats the lady at the counter (same one as before) told me my total would be $159. When I asked why it was so high she informed me that they gave my cats all of the vaccinations they had to offer. I told her that I only asked for the neuter and rabies when I set the appointment. She did not offer to come up with some type of solution to the issue whatsoever. The only thing she could say was "well it looks like someone modified the account".I will never visit this institution ever again and I hope other people don't take their animals here to get ripped off as well. All they want is your money.

The minute you walk in the door, prepare to have your money ready!! I had an emergency & they wanted the office visit payment first. Then they worked up this quote of procedures they were going to do. Meanwhile, my pet was sitting in the back in a cage...untouched!!! She was in distress with a baby hanging out of her & they were more worried about collecting money. The quote i agreed to had to be paid upfront before they helped my pet! What kind of place is this!??? Help the animal in distress! Will never go back or refer anyone there! They obviously care about $ more than animals!

ANIMAL HOSPITAL OF PADRE ISLAN
Horrible!!! They overcharge and the managers were rude!!! They tried to charge me twice for a dog bath, I had to go through 3 diff people just so they could confirm I had paid. Then when I got his annual shots done the price was higher than they had originally told me because of extra fees which I was still confused about because prior we had discussed exactly what the costs were and what I would be paying for. I let it go until I realized his tags weren't with his paperwork. when I went back for him Amy the manager was extremely argumentative and rude!!! She kept insisting that I did receive them...over and over again...and that I could buy duplicates or get them from the city. After she rolled her eyes at me and continually made faces at me as I spoke..I asked to speak to her manager over 6 times and each time her response was "i'm the manager" with a smug look!!! Later find online that the actual manager is Ray and that she is a "manager in training" yet even though I called several times to complain about Amy..he never called back...I had to email him..twice..before he finally responded only to have him defend all her yrs of customer experience but did agree that I should have gotten the tags. I took my dog to two other vets who both confirmed that the initial treatment this place had him on was too "aggressive" and he should be retested before he even goes through with the treatment because in "90% of cases like his" he tests negative. Basically Ray ended the email with "we care about animals and your pets health good luck to you" Um no they only care about ripping people off and both persons I dealt with lack serious customer service skills.

Horrible!!! They try to overcharge AND the "manager" Amy was extremely rude and confrontational!!! They tried to overcharge for a dog bath because there computer screen kept showing that I hadn't paid...I had to go thru 3 people before the one who had originally took my payment confirmed I had paid. Then when I had his annual shots done there, they forgot his dog tags so when I encountered Amy over this she kept telling me that I did get them...over and over again...because "it shows" I did. She acted annoyed, kept making faces at me like I was the idiot, and kept arguing with me saying yes I do I them!!! I finally asked to speak to her manager....several times...and her only response was "I'm the manager" like a parrot as she had a smug look on her face!!! I later looked online and actually found the manager is Ray and she was only a manager in training!!! I had specifically asked for her boss and she wouldn't tell me!!! I called to speak to him several times and he never called back. I even emailed him twice before he even responded and he basically defended her all her yrs of "customer service skills" but did agree that she should have given me the tags. Also the heart worm treatment this vet had my dog on was unnecessary according to 2 other vets and that he should wait to get retested before going thru with the "aggressive" plan. One vet said in "90% of cases like his" that they test negative with the meds he had already taken but this original vet was gun ho about getting him painful shots that he might not even need because he's still too young. They obviously care more about making money than the actual well being of animals and there "managers" have the worst customer service.

Don't take your pets here, I REPEAT DONT! If I could no star them I would! My cousin took her beautiful blue heeler here, causing her to her death! I recently took my dog here, and he ended up with a horrible, and serious wound! Took him to another vet where they are treating him, and he is healing. If you love your pet, don't go here. Many cases similar to me and my cousins. I don't recommend this place to anyone!

Good place to get your animals spayed or neutered! Reasonable prices too.
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
