Dupont Veterinary Clinic
I have two rescue dogs that have suffered with skin irritations for 7 yrs. I have been to other area vets with them and been told they were allergic to fleas, to corn, to wheat, to oak tree I my back yard, numerous other things. I have been buying $50 bags of dog food trying to help clear there skin conditions up with no luck. After my daughter took her dog to Dr DuPont and liked his service and treatment with her pets, I decided I would take one of my dogs there who was at the time having severe skin problems. After all these years, after several hundreds of dollars each office visit, Dr DuPont took a skin culture and told me he had red mange. He treated him and my other dog with two months of medication and my dogs look wonderful. No skin problems! I can't thank him enough. I have some happy dogs. He gets all my business.

Dr. E. Thibeaux has examined my cat for various concerns. Her Promptness, & concern for your Pet is amazing. She treats You, as well as your pet, with Respect. On behalf of herself, & her Staff, it's "No Brainer" to call them whenever something happens to my Cat. The unexpected Follow Up call to check on the status of my cat was exceptional. I give Credit when Credit is due, "Three cheers to Her & her Staff." Many Thanks for a Job "Well Done, Every Time."

Orgeron Veterinary Hospital
Dr Orgeron and his staff have always taken excellent care of our animals. We have never had a bad experience at his clinic. Everyone there is very kind and caring towards everyone's pets. He's in a great location and is reasonably priced for the area. We love Dr Orgeron! Would recommend his clinic to anyone looking for excellent care for their fur-babies!

Town and Country Veterinary Clinic
I have been coming to Town and Country Veterinary Clinic for over 14 years. My old pets were there before Dr. Pete was there. The services are excellent and our old vet highly recommended we stay with the clinic when he left, so we did. We are extremely happy with that choice.

One of the best parts about going to Town and Country Veterinary Clinic is that its always clean in there. If you bring your pet anywhere, you don't want to risk them catching another pet's germs. Thank you for keeping your facility safe for all of the pets who come in.

I could not imagine a better vet's office if I tried. Dr. Pete is the best vet who I have ever worked with. He is very careful with my kittens who get nervous with shots. He pets them before he gives them their shots so they calm down.

Beth Johnson Ward who works at Polk Veterinary Clinc is amazing. I have had a really positive experience with her during all the time I have been taking my pets there.
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
