I really appreciate companion pet clinic. It certainly isn't flashy, and the front desk workers have a pretty down-to-business aura which doesn't bother me at all. I find that they are knowledgeable, and that's more important to me than a perky disposition. The vet techs and vets are favorites with my animals and I have no problem getting my dog and anti-social cat to go see the Companian pet clinic staff. The only thing I would say is that I've often received different advice from the vets - on things like when to spay my dog - than what the Clinic says is its protocol, which is a bit confusing. But ultimately I like their services and prices and while the front desk might not be everyone's cup of tea, the vets and techs do their jobs admirably.

They are busy wuth spay and neutering of animals. The office staff was friendly, not overly friendly but adequate. The prices are what they say. You can elect to have some extra things done rices are listed right there nothing deceiving about this you can elect not to have the extra things and your animal will have the service you pay for. I would definitely use them again. It seems everybody talks about the negative and no one talks about the positives so I wanted to make sure and take the time to give this positive review
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
