AKAL Animal Hospital
I can not speak highly enough about this place. The doctor truly cares about animals. I have been taking my pets here for years. After our family pet died and we got 2 German Shepherds. One night one of our GS puppies chewed on a stick and got it caught in her teeth. We called right when they were closing. Even though we live 45 mins away from them, they stayed open for us and didn't even charge us a after hours fee. They are amazing!!! Most recently my fathers dog had gotten ill. We thought it was cancer. I took her in and was prepared for a big bill with all kinds of testing needing to be done. Nope, the Doctor knew what was wrong and ran the test to confirm it. He could have easily padded the bill with all kinds of test and we would have paid for it. But he did not. Hes very honest and gives you a break down of what you are paying for. Ive never left there thinking I just got ripped of or over paid. Like I said, we live 45 mins away and are willing to drive it for this place.

AKAL Animal Hospital
I had a vet for 17 years. After a series of unfortunate events with our 5 year old rotti. We went to Dr. Akal's office for a second opinion. Even though we ended up having to put our baby girl down Dr.Akal and his staff showed more compassion in the hour and a half we spent in his office than our veterinarian had ever shown. We switched and I am happy we did. The newest rotti addition to our family was just treated there 9 months later and not only did our baby girl get personal attention. But they also remembered myself my family and our doggy that we lost almost a year ago.

Smith Veterinary Hospital
I took my 13 year old German Shepherd here today. She's having trouble getting around and isn't friendly with anyone but her "family". The staff and Dr. Guarha were awesome. They minimized the level of stress she had to go through, listened to my experiences, opinions, and ideas about her care, didn't try to take my finances to the cleaners, and they walked me through what treatment they thought best and most importantly WHY they thought it was best. This was my first time at this vet, and I have to say I will definitely return.

AKAL Animal Hospital
My dog was attacked by a pit and I took him to AKAL were there hours are from 8:00a.m.-6:00 p.m. I called at 6:10 and all they said was " Bring him in , bring him in will wait for you". The price were shockingly affordable and they saved my dog. I have returned there again and again, mostly for shots, but every time they see him they ask how he is doing. AKAL Animal Hospital is a great place to bring your pet for affordable pet care and they truly care for the animals.

North Valley Veterinary Clinic
A very special thank you to all the caring staff at North Valley VEt. I have been going there with all our pets since 1998 and last month, sadly had to lay to rest our 15 year old Golden Retriever who had been a client her whole life at North Vaelly Vet. The care and concern and very compassionate care giving during those last moments will forever be a blessed memory. Thank you!

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
