My dog had a mouthful of quills and needed to be sedated in order to remove them. I requested to go in with him and was told no, Barbara did not want me to see that. I explained that I work in healthcare and I had also seen both of my kids undergo surgeries. She then refused to treat my dog at all. We had to take my dog to the emergency vet who actually cared. Barbara Farren needs to be exposed for what she is..what vet refuses care to a dog in pain because his owner wants to be there for him....Doctors encourage parents to accompany their children. What is it that Barbara Farren is trying to hide?

Upset with the service at this Veterinary Clinic. I called for a ballpark estimate to have a growth removed from my dogs paw. The reason why I wanted a ballpark figure... was because I wanted to know if I could afford to get this procedure done at this time. It could have been hundreds or tens of thousands, i had no idea. But, whomever answered my call at the Clinic told me that the dog would have to be brought in for a visit to get an estimate done, which will cost $52 and they couldn't give me any idea of a range. So, i discussed it with my husband and called back to schedule an appointment. I was told that if it was just for a consultation and not the actual procedure not sure if the vet would even see me and they couldn't tell me when the vet would be in next. Another local vet could give me a range of typical costs and it's in the realm of what we can afford. So the Hampden Veterinary Clinic just lost probably close to $1000 and i'll be taking my pooch and money elsewhere.
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
