Academy Animal Hospital
I would say +5000!!!!!!!! After a very late night and long day daisy is healthy and doing well. All 5 magnets were removed from her stomach. I am so thrilled we decided to go to academy animal hospital this morning. They did an amazing job. After going to indyvet emergency last night we were not happy with their service. When we called for a quote on xrays I was told $90-150. We get there and she said xrays was $250. Never offered to show us the xray results, i had to ask. The vet was not very knowledgeable. They tried to do a scope. They were unsuccessful, which does happen i do get that. Vet said she was sure that the magnets were pinching her stomach lining. I asked if she could see if there is any fluid in the stomach, vet said oh ya an ultrasound. Thankfully there was no fluid. Total cost at this point $2000 for a exam, xray, scope(not surgical). Really not thrilled at this point. The next move was to have surgery but said we had to pay $6000 at the time of surgery. No banks are open at 3 am. They did not care. There was no help or budging the price. Indyvet emergency stated we could do a credit card but all the money was do before they did surgery, which does not make sense. They must have money then or no surgery another option was euthanize her. She is 6 months old! The vet did offer some sound advice to wait till morning, give her fluids. The doctor said once I come up with the money they can start surgery. The vet did say we could take her to our vet.Then after calling multiple family members we came to the decision to take her to academy animal hospital this morning and to give her fluids till 7am. As soon as I called the academy animal hospital they had the vet speak to me on the phone. Dr. Morgan was so kind. When we brought her in I felt that he knew what he was doing. He offer to show us the xray, never had to ask. Dr. Morgan stated that it looked like there was no pinching. I knew she was in good hands. I felt at ease with my decision to change vets.The charge for academy animal hospital for surgery cost $1000.50, indyvet emergency wanted $6000!!!!! They are crooks, not offer payments and expect you to pay an ungodly amount. Good news now Daisy is magnet free and has an intact stomach. I am so thankful for this amazing vet. They gave us food for her, antibiotics, and pain medicine. We have an appointment tom! They really are amazing! We were advised to go to airport hospital next time!

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
