Lindquist Veterinary Care Center
It is unfortunate that my first time dealing with this clinic was when my family had to put our dog down but they were absolutely amazing in how they handled it. They fit us in right away on a holiday weekend, on a Sat. when they're only open for a few hours anyway. Everyone there was very kind and understanding, they gave us plenty of time with her to say goodbye. Dr. Lindquist was the vet we dealt with and explained what she doing and reassured us that it was indeed the right time. After she passed they gave us as much time as we needed to finish saying our goodbyes and we felt no rush to vacate the room. A couple weeks later they even sent us a sympathy card signed by everyone at the clinic. On a more positive note I took some kittens I was fostering there a few times. In this instance I mainly dealt with Dr. Webb who is very friendly and informative. She seemed very current on new and changing veterinary medicine, which is refreshing in this town. She also seems very willing to discuss and explain things as opposed to saying "it's this, give that" like some vets. The only reason I didn't do 5 stars is their prices. On more basic things they aren't that different from the other vets in the area but on some things they charge a lot more, like their teeth cleanings for example. They do a lot to go with that big price tag but not all of it is necessary, and they don't seem willing to not do any of it. Anyway to sum it up great educated vets, friendly staff, kind of pricey maybe affordable for routine care but possibly look elsewhere for bigger procedures.

I don't think I could possibly do justice to the amount of professionalism and competency exhibited by the staff at Lindquist Veterinary Clinic. Dr. Wells and a technician came in on a Sunday morning to see my sick puppy and both were friendly and didn't act annoyed at the inconvenience. Dr. Wells took the time to carefully explain not only what tests she was running and why, but was also knowledgable on current areas of research and answered all of my questions with supporting evidence from different studies. She was completely transparent on the costs of the tests up front, and she went over her diagnosis and treatment plan in great detail with me to check for understanding. She was adept at handling my squirmy pup, and I appreciated her filling me in on what she was doing during the physical exam. It was clear from the beginning of the appointment to the end that she was interested in building a mutual partnership to benefit my dog's well-being...not simply a band-aid treatment for the current problem.

Both the Veterinarians and staff are all very caring. I will definitely bring my pets back when needed.
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
