This is to the crud opinion written below. I have been a client for 12 years. I have lost pets since I have been with her and can say she does everything that is possible for these loving pet of ours. She is an amazing vet and spend endless amounts of time at the office or weekends, days off etc. What u fail to realize is that she does not live there. She does live across the way but that does not mean she is not entitled to sleep in her own bed. Do u live at your job? I watched my vet sit on the floor with my dying dog after a year of treatment due to cancer and cry over her and apologize that it didn't work. This women has taken in dogs that have been infested with maggots due to neglect, or embedded collars etc and board them till she can find loving homes for them. She lives and breaths for the animals she cares for and I DARE YOU trash her name. I feel your pain for the loss, but she is not a miracle worker and from how it sounds Im sure it took more than a day for your beloved pet to get "e extremely ill "e so maybe if u took him in sooner this tragic end could have been different and more could have been done. Its easy to blame someone other then yourself isn't it. So this post is to all current clients and future clients... Dr. Miller is the most caring vet I have ever known. Before moving back I drove 2 hrs for her service. She deeply cares for our fur-babies and it is so disheartening to hear such cruel slandering of her name. So to you unsatisfied customer you should feel terrible for these untrue hateful comments. And heres to you Dana for many more years of service, don't let this crude person who obviously has know idea who you are as a human being or a vet matter. I will and always will be a loyal client and supporter!

This comment is in reply to the prior comment by Ms. Mango. First let me say you have my sympathies for the loss of your dog. As a fellow pet owner, I know that letting our faithful friends go is never easy. That being said, I would be remiss to let your account of Dr. Miller's behavior pass as truth to people who don't know her. You yourself state that your dog was extremely ill, a fact which I am sure was not lost on Dr. Miller and was most likely made clear to you when you brought him in and discussed treatment options. Due to her unbridled compassion for animals, Dr. Miller often attempts to treat long shot cases in the hopes that she can help them. I have personally watched her patch together animals that I thought had no chance of making it, including several of my own pets. As to your dog not being seen throughout the night, I am positive this was not the case. Dr. Miller never sleeps a full night. In fact, she rarely sleeps more than a few consecutive hours, a trait which I am sure bodes poorly for her health but allows for a level of care and attention for the animals at her clinic that would be difficult to find outside of a dedicated intensive care hospital. I know this because I have experienced a day in the life of Dr. Miller first-hand: I am her son. Dr. Miller is an extremely capable and competent veterinarian and a very compassionate person, which is why if you were to walk into her clinic with another "extremely ill" animal in the middle of the night she would still consent to treating it even after your hurtful words. Again, I am sorry for the loss of your four-legged friend. For my own selfish reasons, I certainly hope you do seek veterinary care elsewhere. -Kyle Miller
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
