I just need a place to board my dog for the day as I was from out of town. Everyone was very friendly and so nice to me and my dog, even though they knew I would only be using them a couple of times. If I lived in town I would definitely use this clinic.

If you have a special needs Pet go see these Dr. !!!!!! Both Dr. here are the best I have ever known. Hollister is a 5 lbs Parm. with Diabetic problems. When Hollister first saw his Dr. he was near death. His liver, and pancreus were at maybe 40%, Hollister had many medical problems. The Doctors here treated Hollister for three weeks, they checked on him during the night and on weekends. They let us in to see Hollister all the time. Hollister really shouldn't be alive today!! But, Hollister is still with us and he is now going on FIVE. Hollister doesn't exactlly go by the book of Diabetics' and the Dr.'s shake their heads in amazement when they see him. These Doctors are the best!! These Dr. were their for our family, I dont think they realize how important it was!!THANK YOU< THANK YOU!!!
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
