I must be the only person in the whole world that has animals that LOVE going to the vet! My husband and I have 5 animals: 3 dogs and 2 cats. Both cats have heart issues that require medication; one is also an insulin dependent diabetic and the other has allergies that require medication and prescription food. One of my dogs also has allergies that require medication and as a puppy he had bilateral luxating patella - a condition that can require surgery. We were terrified of surgery but Dr. Roberts was very hopeful and suggested V.O.M. treatments. This treatment is similar to a chiropractic adjustment and is pain free. The treatments were affordable and best of all - they worked! My dog can walk, run and jump with zero problems. It's hard to not see this as a miracle! The doctors and staff at Allison Lane Animal Hospital are very kind, knowledgeable and obviously love animals. They are able to help me keep track of what all my animals are due for, and my animals receive the best care every time. We would never go anywhere else.

I have been a customer at Allison Lane Animal Hospital for over 5 years now. The level of service that is provided is outstanding. The doctors, especially Dr. James Roberts has shown tremendous care and expertise for my dog Coco. These doctors and the staff not only 'treat' ailments with careful judgement and knowledge, but they are also genuine in their affection for their animal clients all while treating their human clientele with the upmost respect. With unexpected phone calls to check on Coco and doing everything they can to keep her well, I just cannot say enough about this animal practice. Another perk of Allison Lane is that my wallet isn't completely empty when I leave there. With past pets, I had used another animal practice and I always felt price gauged. I truly believe Allison Lane Animal Hospital is a real gem in our community.

Extremely friendly and caring staff. They have seen us right away during emergencies and they have always followed-up with a call and, also, a reminder before an upcoming appointment. The prices seem slightly above average, but the service is well worth it. This is a popular and busy clinic, so you many have to wait a half hour when you get there if they are busy.

Spectacular vet. I have dealt with a lot of vets and Dr. Roberts at Allison Lane Animal Hospital is one of the best. He has a deep love for animals and really knows his stuff. He saved my cats life and has been helping my dog through a protein allergy. I could not be more grateful for this awesome and caring clinic. They really understand that my pets are my kids.
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
