I have been with Dr. Rodger Kleisch @ Forest Oaks Vet for 20 + years. He has not only provided the very best medical care for all my Babies over the years, but I feel like Dr. K. and his staff have become my friends. He doesn't order unnecessary test or procedures to inflate my bill. He even gives a discount if you have more than one pet. But most importantly of all to me; when the time comes that the "hard decision" has to be made, he doesn't drag out treatment unnecessarily. He tells me in the gentlest way possible what we have to do. And he reminds me that this too is an act of love....quite possibly the ultimate act of love. He knows how painful this decision is and he shares that pain with me. He and his staff are some of the kindest, most compassionate folks I know. Even the other Docs he has that cover for him on his days off are extraordinary. I MUST specifically mention Dr. Randy Lynn. Dr. Lynn worked tirelessly with my Irish Setter; Shayne O'Malley for 19 long months waging a war against the diabetes that ravaged his beautiful body. We won many battles but ultimately lost the war. He never left our side and was always available via his personal cell phone no matter the time of day or night if we needed him. He truly went above and beyond in his efforts to save my Son. However, Dr. Kleisch and Ellen Brown, our Angel, - cleverly disguised as a Vet Tech helped me release Shayne from my arms into the arms of the angels. Without those two by my side I don't think I could have made it through that horrendous day.I could type for days and never come close to saying how wonderful this practice is. I HIGHLY recommend Forest Oaks Animal Clinic to everyone. Better care cannot be found....Angie MorphisGreensboro, N.C.

I no longer use this practice since I've moveT to Winston-Salem, but for over 18 years the folks at GSO Vet took great care of my pets. the entire staff is friendly and helpful and the doctors helped my pets get through some tough times. When it came time to euthanize my cat, they were caring and compassionate.I also adopted two rescue kittens from their lobby, so they will always have a special place in my heart!

Always prompt and consistent with my pets needs. I am so happy I established my pets as patients with Guilford College Animal Hospital, knowing they are available 24/7. Gives me peace of mind to have such access to a great staff and facility.

I got a new puppy last fall and chose this vet for the convenience of their location and hours of operation. They have been great to work with in developing a wellness plan for my dogs. I highly recommend then.

A great place to know that I can take my pet when he needs expert care. Thank you to the staff and to Dr. Streck.
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
