Vermilion Hillcrest Animal Hospital
I have been using Vermilion Hillcrest Animal Hospital for over 20 years and have always received great care for my pets and great service from the staff. Dr. Jill Bair has been our vet for many years. She started with Jax, our diabetic dog who was a huge challenge to stabilize on Insulin. Her knowledge and guidance aided us in prolonging his life for several years and more importantly, giving him quality of life. When we got our new rescue and found him to have multiple health problems, she got him started right away on a plan to improve his health. He was a happy dog and we attribute a lot of this to the care she gave to him. She didn't hesitate to recommend we see a specialist when she felt it was necessary and would help his condition. When we lost Apollo, she was there to help us deal with the loss by answering questions and helped us through the grieving process. Dr. Bair took care of our cat, Puddy, who developed a sudden back condition that left his hind end paralyzed. We thought it was the end but she treated him and within weeks, he was running around like normal. She aided with surgery on Syd's leg, who is again able to run and play. Syd loves Dr. Bair and doesn't mind going to the vet at all, even if she has to get shots! Dr. Bair continues to care for our dog and three cats with compassion and a high level of professionalism, tact and enthusiasm. Ethan, Kristin and Karen are all wonderful as well. The whole team treats us and our pets like family. I couldn't ask for better care and would highly recommend this clinic and staff to everyone.

Dr. Jill Bair is a very passionate and caring individual. She has help my whole family in many good and bad situations with our cats and dogs. She isn't afraid to give things to you straight and the company is always willing to help financially if needed. The dr went as far as finding a new puppy for us that would suit our needs as a family. When our cat was really ill she monitored our kitty through different trials of medications so we could fix what was wrong with her. Dr. Jill isn't afraid of dealing with the worst possible situations with animals as long as their owners remember that she is doing her job and is helping them out of bad situations most of the time. Not to mention the countless hours she puts in being on call and tending to emergencies while her family is at home!!!!! My opinion is very clear, you will not find a better vet to deal with, period!!!

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
