I was recommended by a friend to this place. I was looking around with low hopes of being happy, since I left my vets due to constant dissatisfaciton. I have been a fur mom for a long time and this place gives me hope that there are still amazing Vets out there I have had a few in the past, but here the entire staff is loving and the Doctor's are knowledgeable and caring beyond belief. Their are lots of Vet offices that have staff that are not the most pleasant or competent or Doctors who dont really have a clue other than what the text book taught them. I have to say this place is well rounded and unique. They also sell Solid Gold...Yay....Holisitc...I was so impressed. Finally a Vet who knows nutrition. I know where I will be taking my fur kids from now on. This is a place I actaully want to go. Highly recommend. If you have pets, this is the place. Also, am I the only one with V.P.I pet insurance? While I am at it go to V.P.I "veterinary Pet Insurance. com and get it. I have saved a lot of money on this. You pay up front at they reimberse you for what your plan covers and it is great. BUt, I dont recommend getting the dental plan, I have the major medical 100 and they just payed for my dogs teeth cleaning and I dont have dental on it. I think you spend more on insurance paying the dental unless you actually really need it. But most people dont. The trick is not to overspend or underspend on insurancexoxo Best of Luck and Enjoy both hopefully. Kelly

Why, oh why isn't there an option to give a particular establishment more than 5 stars if they truly deserve it? These people saved my dog's life, and couldn't have been more professional throughout the whole ordeal. My puppy had gotten a hold of a bottle of medication and had managed to destroy the bottle as well as eating most of the tablets before I found him with small pieces of orange plastic in his mouth. I immediately panicked, called my vet (who told me to get him to these people ASAP). After a 15 minute drag race down to Mckinley & N. Fresno, we finally arrived at the emergency room. To get in, we had to had to ring the puppy was no longer able to hold his head up--I panicked and was pressing the bell so hard and fast that 2 staff came running to let me in. I quickly explained the situation, at which point they grabbed my pup and whisked him to the back. Barely 2 minutes later, the vet came out and asked me if it was ok for them to start treatment and I gave them the ok to do it. In the meantime, they gave me some paperwork to fill out and kept me fully informed about what was happening and how my pup was doing. Long story short, my dog is now as healthy as ever and owes his life to the fine staff at Veterinary Emergency Service. Their business magnet has found a permanent home on my refrigerator.

The review by Briff is a bit misleading. All veterinary care is expensive, and Bullard-Marks is no more so that others. The receptionsits and vet techs are terrific, and Dr. Porter, the DVM, is very knowledgeable and has at least three decades of experience. This has given her the ability to diagnose problems and to confirm that diagnosis with lab work, if the human is willing to pay for that work. She is very upfront about this and does not beat around the bush. She does "mumble," but I think I may have a hearing impairment. I have been taking my cats to her for 15 years and have never been unhappy with the quality of care she provides. Sure, it is sad, when an animal goes into liver failure from eating something outside, or becomes diabetic, or developes feline leukemia, but we all (hopefully) try to give a critter a good life while we have it (and not allow a critter who has decided to not eat to be force fed just because it is adorable). Dr. Porter is pretty good at presenting options and allowing "the patient" to decide. My only "complaint" is that she doesn't have Saturday hours.

Brought my dog into VES after she started having one seizure after another. The night Doctor eventually diagnosed she with a very rare disease that my regular vet missed. After 2 1/2 days in the hospital, multiple VES consultations with other specialists and a few phone calls to me, I brought her home. She is a new dog- lots of energy, eating well and no seizures. I will go as far to say they saved my dogs life. They were able to diagnose this very rare disorder in very short time mainly because of their experience in emergency medicine and their attention to the details we were giving them. This was a very positive experience for us and we will go back if a another emergency arises. Bob C

Veterinary Emergency Service is hands-down **THE BEST** animal ER in town!!!! The staff is efficient in getting the paperwork completed and your pet in to see the bet. The two vets I had there have routinely been nice and informative. Also they don't down to you, they explain things with regular words that make sense and not all that hard-to-follow jargon. This last time I was there,, they saved my dog's life and they couldn't have been more professional throughout the whole ordeal. They helped me get financing thru Care Credit. They kept me informed about what was happening and how my pup was doing. My pup is now as healthy as ever and owes his life to the fine staff at VES!!!!!!!

We have been going to Dr. Kahn for at least twenty years. Starting with our horses, then dogs, cats and bird. The staff is caring and understanding. My daughter's cat was very ill. We ended up having him put to sleep but while he was in the hospital they would let my daughter stay with him as they had never part. When we made the decision we stayed for as long as we wanted...... it was the same with my old cat and dog... never rushing us or trying to hurry us. We got cards from the vets and staff. I will never go to anyone else.Linda and Ashlee Dotson

All of the staff are great, except the actual vet. She is strangely eager to euthanize animals; I brought an animal in and she started the whole 'We should think of what's best for the animal...' line before even KNOWING what was wrong, when the pet has a perfectly fine quality of life. The prices are too high, and they make no bones about the fact that money is their first concern, then comes the pet. I started going here because it's only 5 minutes away, which is important in an emergency situation.. but it's time to find a new vet.

I have taken my dog here quite a few times now, poor thing always seems to be sick or have some kind of ailment. Dr. Nagel has taken very good care of her and I trust her completely, always offers to go above and beyond to make sure I am 100% confident in both the treatment and the answers to any questions I may have. I love the way they leave their door (and phone) open to their clients in case they have any concerns. Thank you so much for all you have done for my "other child".

Took my puppy in to the vet for the first time and was terrified of the bill! Of course I knew the dog would be fine, it was just some allergy medication, so the only thing on my mind was the damage this cute little thing was already costing me. To my surprise it was HALF of what I expected to pay!! Never have my friends had the same luck as me, I recommend Vet Emergency Services to all my fellow pet lovers, they care about your pet as much as they do you!

Imagine the horror to find our puppy collapsed on the ground...even worse while we were visiting family out of town! It's hard to decide on a place when you don't know the area, but luckily we found Vet. Emergency Services. After they gave her some fluids and a little TLC, she was back to normal. Not only were we relieved to see our lil miss back to normal, the bill was much lower than expected! So grateful to find them!!
Tips & Advices
Bring medical records and medications that your pet is taking. Also, you should bring your ID and a form of payment.
Yes, there are veterinary clinics that only deal with emergency cases. They generally take walk-ins and referrals from family vets.
Yes, emergency vets treat dental emergencies and dental trauma. Freshly fractured teeth are the main category of dental injury that vets consider an emergency.
To prevent health emergencies, experts recommend supervising one’s pets, and trying to make sure they don’t get into emergency situations. A majority of emergency vet visits happen because animals were struck by cars, bit by other animals, or ingested toxins. Otherwise, the best way to prevent emergencies is by having a go-to vet you can call with any questions, and being vigilant about potential symptoms (i.e. runny stool, or trouble walking) as they appear but before they become extremely serious.
Experts say that the conditions that necessitate an emergency veterinarian visit include collapse, seizures, inability to walk, partial paralysis, and any difficulty breathing (non-stop panting, constant coughing, hyperventilation, or elevated heart rate). Gum color is often an indicator that something is wrong--especially blue gums or very pale gums. Excessive vomiting or a distended abdomen should be considered an emergency situation. Signs of any trauma or excessive bleeding should send your pet straight to the vet. Lastly, for cat owners, urinary obstruction is fatal if not treated, and generally occurs in male cats.
