I was searching for the website of Ashby and noticed a negative review. I had to laugh because the one star review didn't give any specifics like Dr names, what they had done that wasn't to the individuals satisfaction, etc. Then I realized it is likely some other vet in the area because I've been going there for 2 years and it is the best Vet I've been to. It is also a small town here so you will see your vet at the gym who will ask how your pet (by name) is doing. So far I've lost 2 dogs to cancer and now have 2 more dogs, all of whom I take to Ashby. Most of the staff knows me and they are really great people. They really go above and beyond any vet I've known. Dr. Bell does house calls and lives on a farm herself with multiple animals/dogs. She is well versed in life here and around the burg. She also does house calls. When I put one of my Boxers down she actually met me in a park to administer the euthanasia. Then she took the body for cremation since I couldn't do it myself. I don't know how you can say the waiting area is terrible... it is a place with a reception desk and chairs with a bathroom (you know, like every vet). So do everyone a favor "Agent elf J." and get a life.

Ashby Animal Clinic
Best animal clinic I have ever taken a pet to. They go above an beyond for my little pup from sending reminders of his appointment time to keeping him calm and happy during the appointment. All the vets are great here. Every one of them are happy to help and answer questions as well as love on my little guy. He is never scared to go into the office like my previous dog was at the last vet we went to, he just struts his stuff right in the door and wags his tail the whole time!
Tips & Advices
Bring medical records and medications that your pet is taking. Also, you should bring your ID and a form of payment.
Yes, there are veterinary clinics that only deal with emergency cases. They generally take walk-ins and referrals from family vets.
Yes, emergency vets treat dental emergencies and dental trauma. Freshly fractured teeth are the main category of dental injury that vets consider an emergency.
To prevent health emergencies, experts recommend supervising one’s pets, and trying to make sure they don’t get into emergency situations. A majority of emergency vet visits happen because animals were struck by cars, bit by other animals, or ingested toxins. Otherwise, the best way to prevent emergencies is by having a go-to vet you can call with any questions, and being vigilant about potential symptoms (i.e. runny stool, or trouble walking) as they appear but before they become extremely serious.
Experts say that the conditions that necessitate an emergency veterinarian visit include collapse, seizures, inability to walk, partial paralysis, and any difficulty breathing (non-stop panting, constant coughing, hyperventilation, or elevated heart rate). Gum color is often an indicator that something is wrong--especially blue gums or very pale gums. Excessive vomiting or a distended abdomen should be considered an emergency situation. Signs of any trauma or excessive bleeding should send your pet straight to the vet. Lastly, for cat owners, urinary obstruction is fatal if not treated, and generally occurs in male cats.
