I went here on a Saturday 02-11-2017 so maybe the weekday veterinarians are better then the one I encountered. My cat had blood on his lower lip, was throwing up constantly, very little eating or drinking, was extremely lethargic, and had hot ears. Before I took my cat I took checked the litter box for signs of worms. I checked his body for any cuts or bleeding. When we got there I repeatedly told the veterinarians assistants the problems. Then when the vet came in I told him as well. Dr. D'amico barely took the time to inspect my cat and he was literally inspecting him so I could not see what he was doing. He at least checked my cats mouth as he said he saw a broken tooth. I asked what he thought the problem was he replied by telling me he did not know. That there were a list of things we could do as in test then proceeded to tell the vet techs to get the pricing for me then left.. So I had the blood test done thinking that they would at least be able to tell me the cause then. I was wrong. The next day the person from the veterinarians office called to tell me the he had elevated white blood cell count and liver enzymes. He NEVER told me the problem! Now a week later my cat is still throwing up and his ears (that were not inspected) are horrible and are bleeding from obvious scratching as done by the cat. But for what reason I don't know, because the vet I took him to did NOT check them. When I called today (a week later) the person told me that the veterinarian who inspected my cat put that his ears were fine even though I TOLD them that they were not! Now I have to take my cat somewhere else because he did not do a full inspection, evaluation and diagnosis for my cat. I have filed a complaint with the BBB and other agencies that deals with negligent veterinarians. Edit: I ended up taking my cat to an excellent veterinarian in Tampa. Where they actually preformed a proper assessment and found he had ticks in his ears. Thankfully after the removal of the ticks from my cats ears, and the wonderful ointment I was prescribed he is slowly getting better. Today I was contacted from someone from the Dunedin animal medical center who did not ask about how my cat was doing, but instead asked what my problem was. Then had the gall to ask if I would bring the paperwork from the my now permanent veterinarian. I told him I want nothing more to do with his workplace or the veterinarian who do not do a proper assessment of my cat. I just found out that the license of the vet who inspected my cat is on probation. I suggest everyone look up the veterinarians before you choose. I truly wish I would have.

Mark Thibideau is an excellent Vet that also has a great way of communicating to pet owners. My wife and I knew that his concern was our cats health and id not recommend any procedures that weren't needed. My wife and I were extremely happy we went to Dr Thibideau. The Runyons
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
