This office is very run down! They aren't personal with your pet (they didn't even physically touch my dog)! The doctor is after your wallet (tried pushing their dog food on us, among other things) ! Take your animals elsewhere! Horrible experience with this Vet! First and last time customer!

The neighbors dogs attacked him n tore a hole in his side. We take him to Ripley vet and for the first hour n a half I set there n hold him while she gives him a shot or two n cleans the blood off his feet. That was the few minutes she was in the room with us. Rest a the time I tried to hold sparky still so he didn't hurt himself more. With in that whole time she never ever addressed the gaping wound. She transferred him to Georgetown and he lived for 4-5 hours n then died. When we got his body she had never cared for the quarter sized hole in his side. We called couple other vets and they all agreed within the first 10 minutes he shoulda been sedated and his side should have been immediately cared for. So we call her out on not doing her job and letting our poor lil dog lay there for hours and then die. She immediately says she's calling the cops and raises her hand to Emily while she's coming around the counter. All because we told her that other vets had told us his wound should have been cared for first thing. I told her we'd just let the Ohio vet licensing board figure it out. She was worst vet I have ever seen amazingly bad. Bout an hour into it I'm still holding him and she laughingly looks at me and says "I can't believe he's still making so much racket" I just told her "yea he's got a hole in his side lady I'd definitely still be crying too if no one was helping me". I just felt so sorry for him. You take your dog to a vet under the assumption they will help ya. Not her. Please no one take any animals to her. For your sake and theirs.

I hadn't been in to see Dr. Biehl in a few years but had a question about my dog that was pregnant. She politely answered all my questions and offered her advice. She also said for me to call back if I had other questions. She even answered her own phone! How many vets do that? I remember now that I went to her because of her caring & love of animals. Who cares how far you have to drive!
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
