Kings Canyon Veterinary Hospital
I would love to think the staff of the Dr. at Kings Canyon veterinary hospital. At the time when I was recommended to this veterinarian hospital I was connected through the Internet, I typed in the symptoms of my little dog clearly and that address popped up as a recommendation. So I took my poor little sick Lily ... I really thought I would have to put her down but Dr. looked at her and with this beautiful trusting face, I trusted and the staff was so kind and beautiful towards me and my pet. In a moment like this when you're torn between your heart and your pocketbook you understand what grateful really means and I was very grateful, now Lily is up and around and behaving as normal and happy as she has always done ! putting her down would have been a big mistake ! but I knew I had to do my best and so I did with support from the staff and the doctor I am truly happy with the services Lily and I receive... And I highly recommend this veterinary hospital...... on so many levels ! again I would like to express my gratitude and my gratefulness to people who really care.Thank you, thank you, thank you and may God always keep your establishment safe and always abundantly full... Sincerely yours Mrs. Gloria Larson Fresno California PS. Lily will be going in for some dental work next week so please send my little girl some good energy ! Blessed be !

I have always taken my pets to Cedar Veterinary Hospital for a variety of reasons. Once, when my German Shepherd had a huge tick near his tail I was in a mixed state of disgust and disbelief. How could I have not seen this tick before? It was probably the size of a grape; swollen and throbbing. Disgusting. I threw Sadie in the car and we drove on over to Cedar because let’s be honest, I have no idea what to do about bugs and insects – especially ones that are sucking blood out of my beloved dog. When we got there we were seen right away and the gal at the front desk was very sweet about it. She seemed to understand where I was coming from and didn’t judge me at all about how a tick got on my dog. They took Sadie in the back room and only about 10 minutes later they reappeared. Sadie was fine, of course, but I had a ton of questions about Lyme disease, prevention, and how to remove them in the future. They gave me some good advice and even some preventative measures I could take around my house to be sure this wouldn’t happen again. I paid them a very affordable price and Sadie and I were on our way. All in all, it was a very quick, affordable, and informative trip. I’ve never received anything less than that from the docs at Cedar.

Fresno Pet ER
My sweet dog had been sick and declining for a couple of months when it was suggested she have an ultrasound, so I took her here to see Dr Dobbins. Because of emergencies, I did wait 3 hours and that was stressful but after that it went quickly. The ultrasound showed bad news and I knew my sweet girl was tired and had given up. I decided (against their estimated treatments of $1,400) for euthanasia. Dr Dobbins was professional, very supportive and very kind. He did not try to upsell me or get more money out of me. He went out of his way to tell me agreed with me. The vet tech was very sweet, sympathetic and professional. She administered the drugs gently, professionally, kindly, and my sweet girl went with a little sigh. I've been here in the past and was treated rudely and unprofessionally but for this visit - one of the hardest visits ever - my pet and I were treated very well and very kindly.

Thank you very much for the caring and kind gesture of the beautiful plant with the passing of our cat, Posh. We than you not only for these thoughtful deeds but also the loving, tender care she received form all of you the last couple of years. Thank you also for the compassion given to her at the end of her life. We realize it was as difficult for you as it was for us. We are very pleased with the cremation. Our little princess has found a special place in our home as she did in life. We were pleased to have her be part of our family as she left paw prints on our hearts, as she did with everyone who met her. Again, thank you very much, for your compassion. She is missed terribly.

My dog is like family to me and my spouse. There is nothing that I wouldn’t do for him. So when he wasn’t watching where he was running and smacked into a cement trashcan at the dog park, I was in a panic. His front right canine was chipped and I could see it wobbling- it needed to come out. I took him to Cedear Vet from the recommendation of a friend. The doctors there were the nicest, sweetest and most understanding vets ever. They took care of my dog and got him in for surgery that same moment. They extracted his tooth and he was as good as new. Even though Max is one canine short of a full set of teeth, he doesn’t even notice the difference due to the great work at Cedar Vet.

If your pet is a critical member in your family then Waterhouse Animal Hospital is the place to take them. I have gone to this hospital since nearly it's opening. My pets have gone for routine to complex issues. I know when I go they will be seen by a top notch Dr. and a professional staff. I know that the staff will always bring in or refer out to specialists to get my pet the best care. When it has been time to let go of one of my fur family it has been handled professionally and personally with compassion! This level of care I have NOT found elsewhere.

I just started raising backyard chickens a month ago, and the babies are precious. Being the protective mother hen I am I called Dr. Nic to ask if he would potentially see my chickens alongside my dog and cat I bring in. (Not that I plan to be the person who takes chickens to the vet, but, well... they are REALLY cute so far.) But, just in case I decide to become a crazy chicken lady, or even just need vaccinations or something, he's got it covered. Awesome. Dr. Nic is ready for anything.

Shield Stone Pet Hospital
Take my cat and dog to Shield Stone Pet Hospital, the vets and office staff there are excellent in my opinion. Can call for appointment or you can walk-in, they are open 6 days a week, they all have worked very well with my dog and cat, you can tell they really like animals (fairly important quality for vets to have, although not all vets have it). I highly recommend Shield Stone Pet Hospital. Also what they charge for various services has always seemsed very reasonable to me.
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
