Koopman Mobile Veterinary Service
This vet was born to do what he does. He helped us euthanize our dog Corky a couple of weeks ago. He was so gentle and empathetic and calming and professional. One million times better experience than we had in the past putting a dog down. We are forever grateful. He made such a sad thing, bearable because we knew Corky had the best most loving care in her last moments here with us.

After losing my husband, I fell head over heals for my two new yorkies. My new additions may have been very small, but I never could have imagined two tiny little animals being able to offer so much comfort while suffering so much heart ache and pain, being in my early 40's I still try to stay busy and do with 2 teenage daughters.... my little ones go every where with me and love it. I have dreaded vet appointments since as far back as I can remember, we have had pets all my life. Loading our beagle boxer in the car and now two little ones.... waiting in a waiting room to be seen was exhausting and I usually left with a headache from all the barking. I was looking for a vet since we had recently moved into Dallas, I saw Dr Koopmans ad in the phone book and as much as I hated the thought of the vet visit, I knew since he was mobile and came to my house then at least until I was a little further along since my loss, I would have to just spend the extra money so I didn't have to leave my house. Dr Koopman has the absolute best bed side manner and his professionalism was evident right away. He was professional, knowledgeable , took time to visit with my puppies right in my den floor. Of course the puppies did better than at the vet's office, they were safe in their own environment in their own surroundings. Dr K is the most wonderful vet I have had for any of my previous pets. He makes sure I understand what is going on with all my puppies and if I don't he will simply explain it to me in a way i do understand. No headaches when leaving the vet anymore, 10 other pets were not sharing the waiting room with barking and chaos around me. One of the best parts is I have cut the average time taking my pets in for routine check ups or should one be under the weather or has an injury not requiring me rushing them to an animal hospital. The deal sealer for me was when he handed me my invoice for services, I hesitated and was honest in saying I felt there was a mistake,.... it had cost me LESS than my previous vets I have had for the last 10 years....... He is honest and compassionate about his work and is the BEST we have had!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. KOOPMAN AND KNOW YOU TOO WILL SEE WHY I HESITATED IN WRITING THIS.... WE DON'T WANT OUR SECRET OUT, BUT COULD NOT SHARE THIS FIND!!!

Dr. Pam is the best vet. I have used her for years and will never go anywhere else!
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
