Beatie Center For Animal Medicine
I was a little worried to go here after reading some of the review's, but it's the ONLY vet near our home so we decided to try it out anyways. Dr. Beatie is a good vet, he was great with our pet for sure but he is a bit abrasive with humans. I did not have any issues at all with his staff. There were 3 staff members there while we were there and we dealt with all 3 and they were all sweet, helpful and respectful. They treated the other 3 customers that were there good as well. I would have given him 5 stars if he would have a little bit better people skills.

Great first time vet experience. I chose this clinic simply because it was closest to my home. They took me (my kitten) the same day I called, on a Friday, even though they were already booked! What a relief, because I didn't want him to suffer through the weekend with earmites. Great staff, great vet, reasonably priced. My kitten's bill came to $104 because they had to sedate him to flush his ears--they were that bad!!! Dr. Beatie was very informative and kind to me. The staff was helpful and put me at ease. Glad they are here in Hinesville!

Dr Beatie and his staff has the the most amazing Vet Care you can ever need for your pet. We had an emergency and they were able to see our dog that same day we called. They provided great explanation and care. You can tell that Dr Beatie and his Staff care about your pet and they meet your needs and understand. I would recommend this establishment to all pet owners. Call Dr Beatie for an appointment!

Dr. Beatie is the best vet in Hinesville and the surrounding area. He is very reasonable, and takes care of all the animals who he sees on a daily basis. Dr. Beatie does not rush patient out the door, like other vets and vet clinics do. He treats the patient (the pet) and their owners with a great deal of respect and dignity. ROCK ON DR. BEATIE

Dr. Beatie really knows his stuff! An honest man who won't push for unnecessary treatments or procedures.

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
