I have taken all of my pets and foster pets to this clinic. I think Dr. Silver is awesome. However, I think charging extra for a shot for my dog so she can get a flea dip is outrageous! I made it very clear that I did not want my dog in a cage near other dogs and that I was going to wait for my dog at the clinic so she wouldn't have to go in the back, in a cage. My dog is a rescue that was beaten when she was put in a cage so she freaks when she's in a cage. The staff said I had no choice even if I was to wait, I had to get this shot for my dog. It is not a needed shot, period! I will NOT be forced to spend extra money for no reason and I will NOT let them put my dog in a cage in the back. Even though my dog goes in the back when she has her check ups and doesn't have to have to shot then, she does to get a bath... It doesn't make any sense to me. Other than this, I like this place. Just do not get a flea dip here!!!

I first came to Wayne Vet after a friend told me about them, for a second opinion for my dog's injury. Dr. Silver Jr was able to lay out several options and explain to me the the advantages and disadvantages of each option and the costs. 5 years later they now are the only hospital I take both of my babies too for all of their needs.
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
