Animal Hospital
I have been very happy with Dr. York. My low rating is due to the response from their secretary. On Feb. 21, 2013 Dr. York was kind enough to come in in a snowstorm to treat my dog. On Feb. 22, 2013 I had concerns about his recovery and called the office. Valerie the receptionist/office manager informed me that Dr. York was not in and that I would have to again load my dog up and bring him in for ANOTHER office call with Dr. Smith. She would not even let me talk to Dr. Smith on the phone. I am finding another Vet and would advise anyone else to do so also. While Dr. York is a dedicated Vet it appears that Dr. Smith and Valerie are all about the money and could care less about the animals and clients.

Christensen, Carl D
Dr. Christensen is one of the finest and caring vet in the business. My Boston Terrier recently passed away from Prostrate Cancer. Dr. Christensen told me up front that their facility wasn't equipped to do the necessary testing and would have to send the labs out for diagnosis. He suggested a more fully equipped lab and they were very helpful in providing my buddy with an improved quality of life for his remaining time. Even though Dr. Christensen is not my regular vet he always personally returned my phone calls with advice and comfort. Best Vet in Garden City.

Metzen Vetetinary Service
Great Vet. would recommend to anyone. We were visiting from out of town when our dogs paw was stepped on, it was swollen and he refused to put any weight on it. Dr. Metzen was happy to see him even though it was a holiday weekend. He was very helpful and informative. If we lived in Garden City or surrounding area Dr. Metzen would definitely be our vet. If you want your animals to receive the excellent care that was given to our pet then Dr. Metzen is the Vet. for you

Metzen Veterinary Clinic
Very caring, professional, reasonably priced. My dog and cat don't like very many people, and they were completely comfortable with them, i was surprised.
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
