Even though I went at the worst of times for my pet and I the staff was more than professional and helpful in my time of need. From the moment I walked in the door I felt more at ease with my choice of picking them. I came in to get my bearded dragon euthanized a painful and sad experience for anyone having to choose to put their pets down but, the staff at VCA went above and beyond the call to make the process as painless as possible. It’s the little things that really show a places true nature thankfully at VCA all the little things they did for me made the process enormously better. I would highly recommend VCA Covington Animal Hospital to anyone looking for a place that truly cares about you and your animal’s well-being.

My husband and I have nothing but positive things to say about this clinic and staff. They're all very caring & professional. We took our guinea pig, Spudly Spot, to Dr. Walls and Dr. Brazeau. We always got a follow-up calls which we greatly appreciated. When our dear piggie had two dental surgeries, the veterinarians explained everything to us and treated Spudly with kindness and caring. Sadly, our beloved pet died last summer, even after the heroic efforts the doctors made to save him. We now have a new pet, an Akita/German Shepherd dog named Teddy Bear. We look forward to having Dr. Walls take care of Teddy. This is a top-calibre clinic, and we are glad we discovered it for our pets.Sincerely,John & Cheryl Jackson
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
