I love this clinic and Dr. Dill in particular. We lived in Grand Forks and needed a vet for our sugar gliders. Dr. Dill came up in a search for exotic pet vets, so we went to see him. I was hoping to find a closer vet to us and not have to drive to Fargo for all appointments, but I was so impressed with Dr. Dill that it made the drive worth it. We have taken our pets to him many times since then. We don't live in ND anymore, otherwise we'd still be going there for sure.

"We have rabbits and we were taking them to a vet in GF. We found out one of them had bladder stones and needed surgery. The vet we were taking her to referred us to Dr. Dill because he had experience with this kind of thing and the clinic had better equipment. We happily took her there because we knew she'd be in good hands. The surgery went great and she's a very happy girl now! I would recommend this clinic to anyone!"

Thank you for taking such good care of our Huey Lewis before / during / after her spay surgery. Huey hates car rides and new places, and we appreciate you taking the time to put her in a secluded area to calm her down. Every staff person--from reception to vets- is so friendly. My husband and I both mentioned how comfortable we feel leaving our kitty with you.

Everyone is so nice here! My 13 year old cat came in for his bi weekly laser treatment for hiparthistis. Becky, vet tech, jas Aussie so relaxed, he did not want to leave! His laser treatments have made him feel about 6 years younger. Everyone at Animal Health Clinic is so caring that we feel like family here. :)

Dr. Dill always listened closely to what we were telling him about our pets and was always very gentle with them. I thought they were very reasonably priced as well. He took the time to explain different treatment options to us and never ever tried to pressure us into the "up-sell."

The vets here are so knowledgeable and my dog loves him! The rest of the staff goes above and beyond to help with anything they came- the clinic is amazing. It is always clean and the staff is very accommodating.

Dr Elliott came to my home and did a very compassionate and professional job of euthanizing my cat which had been my constant companion for 19 years. I highly recommend his services.

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
