Phillips Creek Veterinary Hospital
Definitely a 5-star professional and caring vet! Phillips Creek is always such a pleasure to visit. The staff are genuinely concerned for the well being of my cat and have really designed such a pleasant clinic to alleviate the stress for both owner and pets alike. I've been going to Dr. Lopez for several years and really pleased he's created such a fantastic state-of-the-art facility in Frisco. I trust no one more than Dr. Lopez with my cat, Dobbie. If you're looking for a trustworthy and comforting veterinary experience that cares about your pet and the community, look no further than Philips Creek.

Dr Marcum and his staff are so very caring, thoughtful, knowledgeable, honest and hard working. I would not and will not trust my pet to any other clinic or doctor outside of his practice. I've seen them care for large dogs and small dogs and their care is TOP NOTCH. Hands down. THE best in Frisco. Thank you to Dr Marcum and his staff, I know my pet (which is my family) is treated like family at this clinic!

121 Animal Hospital
Dr. Ali and his staff are really amazing. I have a Pug who has allergy issues and Dr. Ali went out of his way to get my little girl in better shape. His front office staff is so professional and always so pleasant every time I go into the office. I have also boarded my pug here with no problems. Everything is kept so clean. I love 121 animal hospital. Keep up the great service.

Blackstone Animal Hospital
They have been WONDERFUL to us since they opened!!!!!!! I cannot recommend them high enough! I'm sad to see so many people bash them. They are definitely advocates for the pets and owners who treat their furbabies as family! If your pet is just that - a pet - and not a loved one then maybe this isn't the place for you. They are kind a caring!

Frisco West Animal Medical Center
I tried the biggest vet, with all the advertising, and had a really bad vet experience, including charging me twice what they quoted. I gave Frisco West a try and loved them! Wish I had tried them first, before surgery. Highly recommend this vet!

Lake Country Animal Hospital
Great place. Great value. Not super high tech just a traditional animal hospital. When you go there you don't walk away feeling like you just paid for a semester of the vet’s student loan.
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
