Grand Avenue Veterinary Clinic
I have gone through Grand Ave vet since my dog has been a puppy; and I have to say that they were just "the vet"; quick check ups that had us in and out. That is until my dog got hit by a car this past January. I have to say that this vet clinic was so helpful, caring and comforting for the whole situation. Dr. Nordquist was very knowledgable and recommended the best solutions for my dog and had his best interest in mind. I would highly recommend this vet to anyone! They are also very well priced.

Duluth Veterinary Hospital
I called because this clinic was closer to my home and less of a car ride for my cat who hates the car. I had an emergent situation and was treated very poorly over the phone. I asked if a family member could bring my cat in to which I was told only if they are capable of making medical decisions for the animal, and when asked if they could call me to make decisions for my cat, the staffer was very huffy, and said "No, ya know, we are really working you in getting an appointment today.". If they treat me this way before I even step foot in the clinic I can't imagine how they would treat my baby! I will be continuing my patronage at North Shore Veterinary Hospital in Lakeside as I have always had a stellar experience with their care and personnel.
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
