Kemp, Gillian - Village East Animal Hospital
I presented with my teacup poodle that was having pain. I did not have an appointment scheduled. There was an opening and they immediately got me in. They were so friendly upon entrance as well as throughout the whole visit. Everyone was. The doctor was very thorough, was not in a hurry and explained in detail her concerns and the issues I may have been dealing with with my pet. The prices were not bad at all. And actually the doctor was very explanatory about cost of blood work and x-rays and told me that I could wait so that I didn't spend the money if I didn't need to. That showEd me that they are not in it for the money.I actually use a vet in Mount Vernon Indiana but now I will be changing to Village East. The office was very clean did not have any older. I love Village East. I'm so glad I I can have a vet so close to home now! Huge thanks to Village East when I was anxious and sad for my dog :-) PS, he is better!

Absolutely highly recommend! I recently took my newly adopted rescue dog in for a check-up and to establish a vet. He is mine and my husband's first dog together so I had a lot of questions. The staff was great! The vet tech was so sweet and I loved how they interacted with my pet, very caring and loving! You could tell they really wanted to treat him well! They even contacted his previous vet to try and get updated records so they didn't have to do any unnecessary tests or boosters to save me money!
Great people and great service!

After 12 hours, 10 teeth and a pretty little Bella came home from surgery! Being new to the Evansville area I had no idea where to take Bella when she needed urgent care. I was referred to your clinic and we feel so fortunate that we found an amazing clinic, the first great experience in 7 years! I can't thank East Side Animal Hospital enough for their genuine kindness, thorough patient care and extensive post-op debriefing! Bella and I are so grateful for everyone at East Side Animal Hospital.

Absolute best Vet care I have ever had. They provide for my 10 year old Rat Terrier and my 1.5 year old Mini Australian Shepherd.I have 100% confidence in Dr. Stewart as their Doctor, Stacy as their Tech, and Jordan to great us when we arrive. They always know who I am and who my dogs are when we come through the door.Makes you feel like family.

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
