Happy Tails Veterinary Clinic
I have used this vet for about 2 years now with my dog Chance who we adopted from the Bay Area Humane Society. I have had visits with both of the veterinarians and both are great with my dog. He is a nervous dog and can be really shy at times and they are very good to him, and patient. They try not to make him anymore uncomfortable than he already is when coming in for annual vaccinations. Also, very affordable in my opinion compared to some of the other local places. They always told me the costs of medications and treatments upfront too. I highly recommend them. Very caring people.

Happy Tails Veterinary Clinic
I have two Chihuahuas ages 4 and 3 that I have brought to Happy Tails since they were puppies. The staff is friendly and helpful. The office is always immaculate and smells fresh and clean, never a pet odor. Both Drs Nasal and Dan are very caring and listen to my needs and concerns. I highly recommend Happy Tails pet clinic!
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
