Animal Urgent Care
My dog bit a puppy i was watching and i took him here to make sure he was ok. He had a pretty nasty cut on his face and had to get 2 staples. Everyone that i encountered from the front desk ladies to the actual veterinarian were awesome and very reassuring that everything would be ok and it wasnt as bad as i thought. To be honest i think the little guys wound hurt me more than it hurt him. I didnt feel any judgement, they were very understanding and were great at their job. It was a lot cheaper than i was expecting too.6 days later i had to come back because one staple had come halfway out from rough housing, the Dr came right out and fixed the problem and didnt charge me anything and again assured me everything was fine with him lol.

I went in today with a friend that was pretty sure her baby was having serious issues. Needless to say... I was absolutely blown away by the level of compassion and care she and her furbaby were shown. She ended up having to put her baby down but I watched as an outsider looking in....and was amazed at how caring and loving they were through the whole process... It wasn't like we are doing our job. They actually cared that this was breaking our hearts. Amazing wonderful people!!

Dr. Garret has always treated my animals and housed them when I was away. Dr. Garret cares. He is the best doctor in town that I trust my dogs care in. His employees may need some help, but not him.
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
