Love it!! My dog has been going to daycare and boarding at this facility and I have to say this place is very clean and they care for your dogs all throughout their stay. My dog Lola loves playing with the others and loves going in the outside playground. I know this because I watch from the camera system they have in all the rooms. You do need your shots up to date and they must be fixed so that's the only negative thing I can say about them but they dog it to protect your dogs which I like very much. Lola always runs right in and doesn't even say bye to me LOL.

This was my first visit with this clinic and I was completely satisfied with my decision to use them. The staff was very friendly and informative. I was a few minutes early for my appointment but that wasn't a problem...I was taken into an exam room right then. The handling of my little Yorkie puppy (Zoey) was very friendly and professional. Zoey loved each person that handled her...no fear shown by her. I highly recommend this vet clinic to everyone!

It's so nice to have a dependable place like this to board my dog when I'm out of town (2-3 days each month) and he is always excited to go to Day Camp. I like that he is not in a crate all day and that he gets to play & socialize with other dogs. We've been bringing our dog regularly since June 2013 and I know that when my dog is there, he is in good hands. They have great customer service & the groomer, Ms. Jeanette does a wonderful job.

One of the best experiences we have ever had with a veterinary clinic. The doctor was not only very thorough and kind, but took the time to share his knowledge with us and answer all of our questions. His staff was friendly and professional as well. We felt like our pets well being truly mattered to everyone there - I am very impressed!

These people are fantastic! I was able to come in and visit before I brought my Cee-Cee in for a much needed spa day. EXCELLENT job!

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
