Animal Care Clinic
by far the best place to bring your fur babies. After moving from the Junction City area I discovered the difference in veterinary care immediately. Having a dog with multiple health issues I found out quickly what can go wrong using someone that lacks the experience and knowledge that Dr. Stenstrom has. I can honestly say that I have driven 16 hours to have this Doctor fix my dog. The whole staff put your animals first and are great at giving you the information you need to make educated decisions about the best treatment for your animal. They are upfront honest people who are in the buisness because of their love for animals.

Town & Country Veterinary Hospital
That Dr. McCreath is the best vet around, very loving and caring. We just took our little Tiny there because he was sick and needed to be put to sleep. She was very humane, gave little Tiny a shot to relax him before she put him to sleep. As much as it hurt to lose him, I know he is in a better place. Dr. McCreath took care of Tiny from the time he was 3 months old to almost 14 years old. She also takes care of our cat, Pepper. I wouldn't recommend another vet in the area. Also, we weren't rushed or anything after Tine passed, she gave us as much time as we wanted, even though it was nearly closing time.

Town & Country Veterinary Hospital
I currently have a kitten and two dogs that I take there. They've always been really nice and try to fit you in between appointments. They are cheaper then a lot of the other vets around here and they are honest and didn't try to tack on any additional things to raise the bill. I went to another vet in Junction City and they quoted me 4 times the rate Town and Country charged me to get 2 of my dogs spayed and neutered and to have their teeth cleaned. I used to bounce from vet to vet but now I only use Town and Country and I recommend them to all my friends.
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
