WFAH is my vet.on May12 2015 I had to make that difficult decision.......for my 16 yr old Hillary (hill girl,or miss Hillary ) the vet ask me a couple of questions that allowed me to make my decision less painful! The staff was so kind and considereate throughout this process I felt there kindness! Yet as I was allowed to go out the back door ,I did not expect to see the that the staff took the time to line up at the back door and the concern , kindness and condolences offered was so touching and much needed . So if you are ever there and the staff seem to disappear.... Be patient and grateful that it's not you they are consing at the back door! I can't thank you enough to. I'll be back some day you are truly dedicated to your profession.

Animal Medical Clinic of Flint
This husband and wife team works great together to offer honest, affordable care for your best four legged friends. The office is small and cozy, personal, clean, and affordable. Most veternarians try to push expensive unnecessary treatments, but these doctors do not. They give their advise and offer affordable treatments. Dr. Walton answers calls for emergency after hours and always cares about you and your family. I would recommend this doctor to anyone who loves their pets! I take my two cats and dog there and will for every:) Thanks Dr. Walton, and I blessed to have come across you and your facility

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
