Wow - my experiences with this vet are the exact opposite of the first two reviewers. I had 7 dogs who are all aging, 4 boys & 3 girls. Dr. Greg literally crawled on the floor for 15 minutes to gain the trust of one of my boys. It worked. The one fear biter doesn't even always have to be muzzled here. He has always had to be muzzled at every other vet.This vet is the best run clinic I've ever been to. I've never had to wait more than 5 minutes for an appointment. Most of the time I wait less than 1 minute. That's with 7 dogs over six or seven years worth of appointments. Vet visits are not your typical rush in and out and prying time from a rushed doctor. Both Dr. Greg and Dr. Andrea take the time to have a conversation about each animal. No rushing, all questions answered, all concerns responded to.They also have a mourning room - the dreaded place where you can comfortably put down a family pet. We have had to put two pups down so far (aging pack - there will be more visits relatively soon unfortunately). We had the option to put them on the couch, the floor, the dog bed, the armchair, wherever he and my husband and I would be most comfortable saying our final goodbyes. The vets are both amazing and the staff is wonderful.

I have wanted it to be known for years just how much I think of this man, my vet. I know I make a point to thank him profusely in person on a visit but just gotta say here that I am in awe of him. My pets and he's seen a good no. Of them through the years and has done a wonderful job treating them and the commitment he gives to ease a dog and cats fears are so remarkable. His quick wit sure helps us who brings him our treasured companions is delightful. He is honest and understands how the high cost of vets out there could cost you your savings. He is a Dr. Who knows we need as much a break on cost like no other. Thank you Dr. Gates for all your yrs.of being our vet and a friend to our family. The Braggs

I totally disagree with the negative review posted. I had a great experience at this location and the vet and staff were very sweet, understanding and helpful. I was in and out in a matter of minutes (even with a very long line of pets) and did not feel rushed in the slightest. It was only $50 to have my pet seen, treated and for the medicine. I could not be more satisfied and would always recommend this location to other people/pets in need.

I had a great experience here! Everyone was friendly. Yes, including the doctor, who was patient with all of my questions. She was gentle and kind to my 14 month old border collie. We were in and out, without an appointment, in under 40 minutes having had her heart worm test and 2 vaccines. I didn't get a "hard sell" to purchase products from their office and I left with money left in my wallet! Very pleased. Would highly recommend.

I've found the staff to be nothing but kind especially the veterinarian. Like Lynn said they never tried to push products on me and treated my animals with kindly.

I Love These People! They are kind and loving toward your pet. I have show dogs and they give them exceptional care. I have been going there since 1980.

The kindest vets you will ever come across (and the best prices). We have taken all of our animals there since 1977.

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
