I have always heard people talk about their favorite vets that had retired, but had never found my own. I have never had a problem with a vet, just never found that special one. I can say now, after visiting Adorable Pets, that I have found that. I have never visited a vet that was so friendly, happy, and inviting. The entire staff was the same way. They fit my three dogs in right away and took great care of them talking to them and petting them. The building is beautiful and cleaner then any other vet I have been to. They didn't even mind my son and one of my dogs running around the office (no one else was there and they thought it was hilarious while I apologized)! I look forward to visiting them next time and am excited that they follow a more natural path than most vets in the area providing acupuncture etc. Their prices are completely reasonable. I still can't believe how great everyone was there. BEST VET EVER! Seriously!

We have had nothing but expert care and advise for our senior dog who needed acupuncture & chiropractic care, while also advising on a chronic medical issue holistically which our regular vet could not give us information. Chinese & Laser treatment also available. This is a serious veterinary office, and not a dog spa which I first thought by the name & this pic of the building is old, it is now completely remodeled inside & and out.

Dr. Bernie is great with our pets! She explains everything that is going on with our pets and then offers us several affordable options like wellness plans, laser therapy, acupuncture, chinese herbs, and house call visits at convenient times. She really cares about our family and our pets. She considers all of her clients and patients as her close friends.

Dr. Bernie and her staff are simply wonderful. Sadly, we had to Euthanize our beloved cat, Pickles, on 11/4/13. Dr. Bernie and staff made a House Call to perform the procedure, which was so much more peaceful for Pickles and my family to have this done at home. They were so kind, compassionate and we thank them so much for offering this service.
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
