We were visiting family in Kalispell when our dog got suddenly very sick. The team at All Creatures Veterinary Clinic got us in for an appointment quickly and went above and beyond to make sure that our little guy was taken care of during our visit and after. They made follow up phone calls, they encouraged us to call daily to give reports on how he was doing, and got us in quickly for follow up appointments as his treatment continued. It is absolutely due to the compassion and expertise of Dr. Markellis that our little guy was saved. I don't know what we would have done without this amazing clinic! Wish we lived closer so that we could make this our primary vet!

"Good" service. Not great. Highly capable and qualified staff that works here. Be prepared to spend 2-3x compared to any other vet in the flathead valley. Other vets quoted $200-300 for dog dental work. The final bill ended up being $800 here. They didn't give an estimate till I showed up to drop my dog off. I guess shame on me for not requesting it Friday at 5:00pm when they said drop him off Monday at 7:30am. They are also really proud of their certifications and how much better than all the other vets are in the flathead valley and will tell you all about it, even if you don't ask.

Dr. Markellis is a kind and compassionate vet who has cared for our many animals for 15 years. He has performed miracles for us and we are very grateful for his dedication to their well being and ours as well. I once drove my dog from Toronto Canada back to Kalispell in the dead of winter so Dr. Markellis could treat him when he needed surgery. He's the best.

When my little dog, Harley, got sick, I took him right in to All Creatures. They took such good care of him and me. He had pneumonia and did not survive, but the compassion and treatment were top notch! These people truly care about animals! I have taken my pets to All Creatures for years and always feel appreciative of their care.

Dr Markellis and his staff are awesome!! They're very compassionate and knowledgeable. I brought in a large aggressive dog, needed x-rays, and they had no problems and were very gentle. I recommend them highly!
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
