Krebs Kohler Minnix
Our little Chihuahua, Chico, was hit by a car this afternoon. He somehow got out of our fenced in back yard when we let him out to use the bathroom. My daughter ran outside with a sheet and picked him up off the street and brought him inside. We placed him in a box wrapped in the sheet. He was breathing but he struggled for every breath. I petted him while my daughter was on the phone with vet offices in Middletown. We saw very little blood on him and no marks of having been hit. Finally after an hour of phone calls to vets that I feel are pathetic because they need that money right up front, my daughter got a hold of Krebs. I call this place the place with heart. They know how much our pets mean to us and they offered to help. My daughter and grandson took Chico right to them. They believe he may have some extent of brain damage as there is swelling in his head. They are keeping him over night and we won't know more until 8 am in the morning after the x-rays are done. God bless you Krebs.. I don't know what any of us pet owners who consider our pets family would do without you. I will highly recommend your services to everyone I know. Thank you so much for caring for our pets and doing everything you can do to keep them alive and well.
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
