We are so happy with the DeLand Animal Hospital! We have always loved Dr Ulbrich. She's been our vet for years and has helped us with many of our animals.Recently, we also fell in love with one of the emergency vets who work at the DeLand Animal Hospital. Our oldest dog has to go outside to urinate a lot. When we let him out to go to the bathroom late at night we were terrified when he came back with a wound on his ear. We saw the emergency vet, Dr Wallace, in the middle of the night and were so impressed! He was kind, gentle, and just so sweet to us! It's great to know that we got the same type of amazingly sweet care in the middle of the night. He was so thorough. Naturally, we were worried when he said that Tank needed surgery. Our concern was the effects of the anesthesia on our old boy. Dr Wallace took the time to explain the procedure. Tank did great and his ear is back to norma! A big thank you to the technician too - she was experienced and kind! Thank you for being the best veterinary hospital!

I will always be grateful for the wonderful services of the DeLand Animal Hospital. I have been coming to this hospital for many years. The owners, Dr MacPhail and Dr Ulbrich are so warm and even came out to my house when it was time to say goodbye to my sweet cat Missy. They held my hand and cried with me. I will never forget that. When my other cat was diagnosed with kidney failure 2 years ago I was devastated. Dr Ulbrich assured me that they would do everything to make her comfortable and I am happy to say that she is still doing well! She receives her daily blood pressure medication and kidney supplements and even gained some weight at her last checkup! I will always have a special bond with Dr Ulbrich and Dr MacPhail but I love everyone at the DeLand Animal Hospital!

I called to ask for an estimate on a C-section for my French Bulldog. My female was schedule for one with my regular veterinarian the very next day (5 hours away). They started by telling me that it was hard to give an estimate on a procedure. That they needed to see the dog first and then on top of that they told me that my dog would be fixed immediately right after the c-section. I asked them why would they do that and basically they told me that it was their "standard" procedure at "NO CHARGE". I just found this outrageous. Basically the pet owner won't have a saying in this matter.What they are doing is profiling people just become they breed their pets. That is as personal as to decide to have your own babies.People beware!I would never recommend this place.��������

Thank you DeLand Animal Hospital. I do not have children-my dogs are my children. This is why I have to write this review. Everubody at DeLand Animal Hospital knows how I am about my babies. They know how much I love them and they always put my mind at ease. When I found a lump on Baby's belly, I was terrified. Dr MacPhail sat down with me and offered ALL options - he let US decide what to do. Together, we decided to have the tumor removed and thank goodness we did. The tumor was cancerous but the surgery was a cure. They day of the surgery, I must have called 100 times to check on her. Everybody understood and I received updates. Tonight, I sit here with Baby and Thank ALL of you wonderful people at DeLand Animal Hospital for saving my BABY

Wonderful veterinarians! We had an emergency this weekend and DeLand Animal Hospital was there for us! Our puppy was so sick and we appreciate the loving care she recieved by ALL of you - your front staff, technicians and veterinarians. Also, we were pleasantly surprised how low the bill was - but we would pay anything for our pup who is now better. It was our first time here and we want you to know that we have never been to a hospital as caring as you! Thank You!

The best veterinary hospital in the entire state of Florida! The vets and staff are wonderful, kind, knowledgable and treat your pet as if it was their own. I've also never heard of an animal hospital that is truly always open, but they really are always there to take good care of your loved ones, so for all of those reasons and many more, in my opinion it's worth driving 30 miles past other vets just to see them.

Skillful and compassionate Veterinarians who really care about your pets. I love the 24 hour availability. It's comforting to know if I have an emergency that my pet's records are instantly available. I highly recommend DeLand Animal Hospital.

Great place. Took a sick goat there late one weekend evening and they did a great job - at a reasonable price.

I strongly recommend them. They saved my dog from a very complicated illness!
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
