Freed Philip DVM Dog & Cat Housecalls
Dr. Philip Freed provides outpatient veterinary care for your pets in your own home. His fees are very reasonable, and he can take care of any health issue that does not require high-tech equipment or hospitalization. I breed Labrador retrievers and standard poodles. I have used Dr. Freed's services for my 18 dogs, dozens of puppies, and a Maine Coon cat for the past 5 years. He is a wonderful, experienced vet with lots of common sense. He will give prescriptions that can be filled at Wal-mart for $4 or at online pharmacies, instead of the usual vet practice that charges outrageous fees for drugs they dispense. Give Dr. Freed a try at 808-557-9501.

Freed Philip DVM Dog & Cat Housecalls
We met Phil when he worked in timmonium,MD. He was the BEST vet all around we ever had for the entire time we lived in the state, phone consulted to him once from Denver, and never got bad info from him or bad help. We miss him hrre, but think the area he serves is better for his being there!!!

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
