Animal Emergency Clinic
Dr. Rogers is an amazing, caring vet. On Saturday we brought our baby Gator there hoping to give him just a few more days of antibiotics to see if he would improve, after being told he may not make it. Dr. Rogers used her own personal experience with her dog and her intelligence to treat Gator. Today, his fever broke and he is trying to stand on his own, a tremendous improvement to where he was on Saturday morning. I have never met such a caring, giving, and loving person and would make her my vet on a every week basis if possible. True blessing and angel in disguise.

I have been taking my dog and cat to Dr Wiggers for over ten years. He is extremely knowledgeable, fair, kind, and trustworthy. I wouldn't trust the fury members of my family with anyone else. Excellent vet and wonderful person. The staff is wonderful as well! Highly recommend.

The were very helpful in getting me an alternate way to give my dog his meds. I have no problem with them except they don't take checks and I had to go get cash. I do not have a debit card and did not want to use credit. Next time I take cash with me.

Dr. McElveen is the best vet I have been to in Greenville. I have 6 rescue dogs and need a vet that is fair in pricing. I have been to vets that mark their drugs up 400%. Dr McElveen charges a smaller mark up and seems to really care about my dogs.
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
