Ottawa Animal Hospital East
OnlyBeen too the waverlyLocation but wow what an awesome place so clean and didn't smell or anything it was like walking into a human doctors office the staff all were very friendly and knowledgeable and seemed very eager too help and as weird as it sounds they wear scrubs which too me just their exterior presentation was a breath of fresh air after our horendous experience at mapleview ( complete opposite of Ottawa) so please beware of mapleviews reputation they are quite popular I don't know how though bc they are the absolute worse so do your pet a favor and choose Ottawa animal hospital if you truly care about your pet and your wallet Ottawa is the place too go!!

Animal Clinic of Holland PLLC
I have been going to The Animal Clinic for almost 20 years with my cats and dogs. They are always kind, gentle and caring!! They take the time to explain procedures, answer questions and give choices.. We love the Animal Clinic!!!!
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
