Friendship Springs Veterinary Care reviewsGoogle review summary5★4★3★2★1★ 4.67 reviewsGoogle reviewsMost helpfulDuncan EckDuncan Eckin the last weekDr. Cutchin is amazing. I found him with a Google Search when my dog's skin issues became too much for my partner and I to handle. He fixed him up & made me and my baby feel so comfortable while assuring me that I wasn't a terrible pet mom for what was going on. He took the time to answer any and all questions I had and I enjoyed my experience so much that I now bring my cats to him as well. He makes it an amazing experience every time. I had my female cat spayed at his office today and even though they close at 6, when I called at 5:55 with concerns about how she was looking, he and his staff stayed until I got there at 6:20. They were nothing but kind and understanding, luckily nothing was wrong aside from me being over concerned, but I was so grateful at the above and beyond service I recieved. His prices for everything are competitive but even if they weren't I'd continue to go to him. He's great with all my animals and everyone on his staff has been nothing but sweet and complimentary every time. I adore this place and will never go anywhere else as long as he is practicing. Thank you Dr. Cutchin, for making me and my babies feel safe.

If you live even remotely near Flowery Branch this is the place to go if you have a pet who needs help. I don't live near there, but the drive is worth it. They have my business for life. I have never been to another vet clinic like them. Most places are rush them in, rush them out, wham bam thank you ma'am. Not Dr. Cutchin. I went to him for a second opinion after a friend of mine recommended him. I had already spent a ton of money and had gotten nowhere with another clinic that only seemed interested in money. Dr. Cutchin was very thorough and he took all the time I needed to explain what I needed to know about what was going on with my dog, what could be done about it, and what to expect after. And his prices were very reasonable, far better than what I had already spent at the last place where I didn't even get an answer. The bottom line is he saved my dog's life.

Although it has been some time since this initial post was made, I was only recently made aware of its presence. This case bears comment because the owners' claims are patently false. Tthis patient did in fact receive a full physical examination in front of the owner. A tentative diagnosis was made, other possibie diagnoses were discussed, and the owners were told what further tests and treatment would be needed. In spite of being told that the prognosis would be poor without hospitalization for treatment. and good with such treatment, for reasons of their own they decided against our best recommendations. They instead decided to have us provide only temporary treatments. We informed them that while such treatment was only useful in the very short term, that additional care was going to be needed, and that he could worsen quickly, without warning, because of the nature of the disease. This did not sway their decision. Reluctantly, and with their understanding that this would be unlikely to be successful, but was better than nothing, we provided this lesser treatment, we reiterated the need for hospitalization, and they went home with their puppy. I am sorry for their loss, but their puppy's death was not because of inappropriate action or inaction on our part.
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
