Kokomo Animal Hospital
We took our pup here for an ear crop so she could follow in her dads legacy and appearance. The staff was extremely kind and caring for our little girl from the very beginning. The ear cropping went well and when we went to pick her up the next day she was clean and her ears were actually very clean as well. She just got her stotiches out yesterday and has healed up perfectly. Very minimal scabbing. The doctor was very well experienced as we brought a few pictures and he mad her ears look identical. We will never go anywhere else even though we live an hour away, it's well worth the drive to have caring professionals take care our our pup. While in the office we saw several others picking up their pets who came out happy and wagging. Hands down best vet I've experienced or heard about in over 20 years of pet ownership.Thank you Kokomo Animal Hospital!

Kokomo Animal Hospital
I drive 45 minutes to Kokomo Animal Hospital for several reasons: they doctors have a perfect balance of being knowledgeable and reasonable (they won't suggest tests which don't need to be done); the walk in hours in the morning and evening are so convenient; and the people are so kind. I have seen ever doctor in the practice over the past 7 years, because I have have 4 dogs. Each doctor was top quality. It's worth the drive from Indy.

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
