McPheron Animal Clinic
Dr Sam McPheron is one of the best vets in our area. We have rescues and he has not only treated everyone of them but they offer a multi pet discount on top of their already affordable rates. I have never had a bad appointment or left feeling over charged. Our 2 youngest will be going in Wed 10-17 for spaying. And I know their care will be the best . I carry extra cards with me I want everyone to have the same great vet that our girls have .

Dr. Green is one of the most amazing vets I've ever met. She has been a apart of our family for over 2 years and I don't know what we would do without her. Everyone on staff is not onlyhelpful, but goes the extra mile every single time we visit. I can't say enough great things and can't express in words how grateful I am for the exceptional care I have received for the last few decades.

I love this place. I have had five pets taken care of here over the past twenty five years. Everyone is always very helpful and kind to the animals, and very thoughtul when the time comes to let the member of the family move on to pet heaven.

Valerie was incredible. She really helped me through a scary time. She is kind and very professional. She did not make fun of me (unlike my husband) when I came in all upset. She is a true asset to your business.

The warmth and care that Dr. Green and her staff gave us was the comfort we needed when our hearts were breaking and our Angel was in pain. She is at peace now and our hearts will mend. Thank you.

Dr. Green was very thorough and answered all of my questions. Our dog was in pain and you agreed to see us without an appointment. The staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. Thank you so much!
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
