This place is an absolute godsend for overnight emergency care! The staff and vet we're extremely polite, informative, reassuring, and answered every single question we had about our Doberman. I would recommend this to anyone who needs emergency care for their pet. I am so grateful for this place! 100% 5 Stars!!!

I would recommend Arkansas Veterinary Clinic to everyone, in fact I would even say that you would be ridiculous not to take your pets here. They treat both you and your pet in a kind manner.

Relaxed atmosphere. Reassuring doctor. Nice staff. Has boarding services. The visit costs more than anticipated, but both pup and I were made comfortable and reassured.

When I come into the clinic, I know that I will not have to second guess the cleanliness. I've been bringing my pets here for a long time and it always looks clean!

Whenever I have questions about what Dr. Hittner is doing for my dogs he's always able to explain things to me in a less technical manor. He's a thorough guy.

I wouldn't bring my pets to anywhere other than Arkansas Veterinary Clinic. Everyone there is really good at what they do.
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
