WORST EVER, TOTAL SCAM.... My dog was very ill with 105.7 degree temperature this morning. I wanted to get her IV for fluids and meds, as she was throwing up the meds I got earlier at the hospital I had taken her to that morning. Well I call their office tell them exactly what I need... they tell me they can treat her, but that the doctor would have to do a exam first... I said that was fine, even though she had a full exam that morning by the other hospital, several x-rays and a full panel of blood work. Then they ask if I can get there before 7:00pm as they closed, I said I could. I rush there to get there at 6:30pm, we aren't even seen until 7:30pm. The vet doesn't even spend 3 minutes with her, doesn't really do a full exam, tells me he can't treat her that she needs to go to a animal hospital... I am like HELLO isn't THIS an animal hospital... that is what your sign says. Then he leaves, and I am told I owe for the exam... the one thing I didn't need or want, and I don't feel was even really done. I feel scammed to get a another fee in just before closing. NEVER NEVER go to the place, the vet sucks and did't really seem interested or concerned about my pet, just getting me there before closing and collecting a fee!!! I called a vet to come to my home (Dr. David Lebovic 909-989-3253) he did a REAL exam, gave her antibiotic injection, so she can't throw it up, and IV meds :) My dog is at home, happy and safe. (and not exposed to more illness) He was reasonably priced and more importantly cared about my dog and her health.

Very expensive, was expecting to pay 19.00 for shots, sent my son they charged him 44.00 for shots.,didn't let him know prior to charging him.. Would never go to them again.. Check out arrowview animal hospital in San Bernardino, shots on Thursdays 's are 5.00 if u don't mind the wait..any other day 10.00. My bad for going to fontana animal hospital much closer but much much much more expensive!!
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
