Fort Lupton Vet Hospital
Dr Mac has been our vet for 26 years, first working on my show horses then our small animals as well. We've had some scary stuff as well as the mundane, and he handles both with the appropriate level of care. The guy knows his stuff and if you listen, you'll get great direction. As a long-term client, I've never been turned away because his schedule was 'booked' and I've never had an emergency he didn't personally take care of - even if it was three in the morning.

Larry Mcmillan DVM is the owner of this animal treatment facility. I have known him for many years. He is not in the profession of caring for animals because he wants to be rich. He is the most reasonably priced veterinarian for miles and miles. He has pet lovers come from Denver and Aurora to have his expertise. If you want the best care and advice for your pet. Give him a call.

Dr McMillan is the best vet I've ever trusted with my pets. He truly cares about the animals he trusted to care for. We lost our very old, very sick dog and he was almost as upset about his death as we were.His prices are the best around.You will definitely get more than you pay for. As long as he's in practice I'll be his customer.

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
