For the last couple of weeks my dog was feeling very nauseas and got irritated easily... luckily, I had a recommendation of Harrisonburg Veterinary Emergency Clinic given to me by my friend... after successfully diagnosing the problem the vet kept him on antibiotics for a week...now he is absolutely fine. Strongly recommended.

Last month my dog accidently injured his neck and I took him to Harrisonburg Veterinary Emergency Clinic...they took their time to examine the affected area thoroughly and treated him accordingly. Within days, my dog was able to stand on his own and was well in some weeks. Thanks for your care...

On the last Saturday morning, my dog broke his ankle and I took him to Harrisonburg Veterinary Emergency Clinic. They also provided me a 50% discount on the emergency fee because I am a JMU student. They were very gentle and careful while examining him. Reliable service!

The whole staff at Harrisonburg Veterinary Emergency Clinic is wonderful, and caring. My cat was very sick last month, so I took her to this animal clinic. The vet was open-minded and answered all my questions. Highly recommended...
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
