Family Pet Hospital
Family Pet Hospital, Dr Bray and all of her staff are exceptional. I've taken my pets to them for many many years. I receive the same outstanding service each and every time I bring my pets into the office and they always take time to make each pet feel special.From getting a new pet to having to make the decision to euthanize, Dr Bray is honest, caring and very compassionate in sharing your options. She doesn't push unnecessary testing or treatment. She gives you the information to make a informed decision. My pets are my children, so I am very aggressive in my treatment options, but Dr. Bray always lets me know how this could affect quality of life vs more time. Letting go is never easy, but with their help I know my animals have had the best quality of life & care available.

There is no better place to take your pets. I've been coming here almost 10 years now and Dr.Newsome has been great with all of my family's pets. He has saved the lives of my cat and dog before, and I have also taken my pets in for well puppy/kitten check ups and routine surgeries and have not been disappointed with the service I've gotten from him. I've even had to have him put a dog down and all of the staff were wonderful during that time. The only issues I've had were a couple of times when the staff forgot to give me a medication or when they gave me a 6 month instead of the 12 month dose I paid for. The quality care that Dr.Newsome gives makes up for it though, and this place is also one of the cheaper vets to go to.

I've brought animals to Dr. Davis' clinic for five years. The staff over the years may have changed, but Dr. Davis sets the tone. Everyone there loves the animals. He also encourages the young people he hires and works around their schedules. They all go out of their way to care for my dogs & make me feel good about leaving them or diagnosing them. His practice has grown & the new doctors he hires are the best. If I'm ever worried, that's where I go for compassionate care for my pets, my "family."

Dr. Newsome is fantastic. I met him 18 years ago when my first dog Max had an allergic reaction to bees. He's been my vet for everyone of my pets since then and I missed him when I moved out of town for a few years. He's always so gentle with my Bostons and knows them as soon as they walk into the place. I'm glad I have a vet like Dr. Newsome!

I can't say enough great things about Acre View! They treat my family and pets like their own family! Even with abnormal situations like a guinea pig with a tumor! The staff at Acre View went above and beyond to ensure that the guinea pig was as happy as healthy as long as possible.

Dr. Adam Laughlin is absolutely amazing. He takes the time to answer questions and always puts my pet's health as a priority. I will never take my pets to anyone else!

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
