The vets are very nice, but not up to date. We were told that there were no allergy tests for dogs. We had been customers for over ten years. Our dog had kennel cough after having been recently vaccinated there. He was fighting to get air. We called on a Monday and we're told they could not see him until Friday. We were told to either try a new vet office or take him to a vet E.R. We were able to get him into the new vet in time to help him. We were also told that we could test him for allergies which we did. We also had 2 different doctors contradict one another on condition our old cat had.. Very nice doctors at reasonable prices, but knowledgeable and up to date? Try somewhere else. We had also dealt with the rude front office for far too long.

I have been training and selling police dogs and military dogs for 7 years. Was a military k9 trainer and 2 years of sheriff office K9 handler and I brought my female malinois Paris in today for an x ray to see how many puppies we had in there and the vet staff was extremely helpful and answered every question I had. I tend to find that many vet offices I go to have less knowledge about dog reproduction than I do from the years of breeding and experience I have with breeding but this vet office had over exceeded my expectations and I will be recommending anyone and everyone to this vets office thank you

Dr. Happel and all of the staff are wonderful. We have been with them from the very beginning. They are friendly, knowledgeable, innovative, and state-of-the art. There is on-line management of our pets and we even got a Birthday card for the puppy! We are so happy to have a top-knotch vet in our neighborhood. We often just stop by on our walks to say hello and get a treat. I encourage everyone with a pet in the area to check them out!

Dr. Zylstra was extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy. My dog has a heart murmur and he explained everything clearly to me and didn't try to talk me into any unnecessary tests or diagnostics I couldn't afford. We worked together to make a plan on how to treat my dog and the staff has always been kind and helpful whenever I've called to ask a question. I highly recommend this vet!

We have 2 German Shepherds that we brought to All Heart for boarding. They were in good hands. Plenty of photos of them eating, being walked, playing, and smiling from the attention they were getting. When we came to pick them up, they were energetic and excitable. We know we will be back next time we need a trustworthy petsitting service.

This is a pet care provider that you can TRUST with your pet. Daily updates, very interactive with your pet, and keeps them out of a crate. My dog Brody got the opportunity to stretch his legs and exercise! Very comfortable with All Heart Pet Care's dog sitting services. I would recommend them with confidence!

You know can tell when you pull up in the driveway and your dog goes crazy to get inside that these folks take really good care of them. I have two pitbulls that I rescued last summer and I spoil them. I take them for day care at least 3 times a week. They really love it here! Highly recommended.

I couldn't be happier with my experiences with Dr. Happel. She took excellent care of my pups! I'd highly recommend.
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
