Midwest Animal Clinic
I recently adopted two cats that were "taken care of", and I use this term loosely, here. When I got the cats I was given paperwork that said they were seen 4 days earlier and were given a clean bill of health. When I got the cats they both had upper respiratory infections and eye infections. When I called to get their records I was told that because there were multiple cats they didn't have individual records for each cat...which I find absurd, because when I take multiple cats to my vet they each have their own account. So what this tells me is they are lazy about there paperwork. If you have multiple animals how are you supposed to prove that they each have had vaccinations?!?!?! Then the vet Jackie Insko got on the phone with me and when I started asking questions and telling her what my vet had found she cut me off and started yelling at me. Not only do I feel this place doesn't really care about the animals they see, but they also have horrible customer service. I would only bring my animals here if I didn't care what happened to them! Please be ware!!!

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
