Treasure Hill Pet Hospital
The staff here is very nice and professional. I've only been a couple of times and I loved it. The only negative thing that I have to say is that they are very expensive. I chose this clinic because I needed a vet ASAP and all the other clinics were full, now I see why. If you are new to the area or a first time pet owner call around because there are other places with the same amount of love and care, but you don't have to pay as much for your shots. Do your research.

I adore Dr. Miller - he doesn't try to charge unnecessary charges, and he's the one of the very few left of the " wonderful older school" type veterinarians who make it seem that they truly care about pets versus trying to get you to buy this expensive food or tests that aren't necessary based on animal's age or other qualities. One of the up front staff members comes across slightly brash which is the only reason that I wouldn't give it a 5th star.

Hillcrest Animal Hospital
I've been going to Hillcrest Animal Hospital for over 25 years and wouldn't consider going anywhere else. (I live in west Little Rock and still drive to Hillcrest…that's how good they are!) They have the best vets and Dr. Larry Nafe is one of the most talented surgeons in the world. And when it's time to make the difficult decisions, they are compassionate and patient, while providing the information you need to make those decisions.

Great drs but staff is very rude especially the front desk clerk Candy. She's very unprofessional and made so many mistakes on my records that I never could get straightened out so I left. I wish I could give 5 stars for the groomer Chrissy bc she's the Best!!! But I can't since she's connected to vet. I would go back to her if she was out on her own. She's awesome! They need someone at front desk with better bedside manners tho.

East End Animal Care
I am a new client with two dogs and a cat. I brought one of my dogs to have her spayed. They did a great job with her, she was scared but the staff were patient with her. The surgery went well and at a cheaper rate than my vet I had been using. The staff are all very polite and helpful and will awnser your questions for you. I will not go any where else with my pets!! This is a great Vet and Staff!!

Hillcrest Animal Hospital
The doctors at Hillcrest took such good care of my dog! Dr. Butner took a lot of time to help me understand what was happening with my dog. He ended up needing surgery to have a hairball removed from his gut and Dr. Larry Nafe did a wonderful job! I have absolute confidence in them and wouldn't take my dogs anywhere else.

Shackleford Road Veterinary Clinic
The vets at Shackleford Road Vet Clinic are totally awesome! My dog had to have surgery for a torn ACL. She was terrified to be left there. The staff was very helpful and did everything possible to make sure my dog was comfortable for the process. They treated her like a queen. I would recommend this vet to any pet owner.

Bellevue Animal Clinic
BEST QUALITY ANIMAL MEDICAL CARE!Dr. Marvin took the best care of my dog when we were in need. I felt like he gave the best help and was so professional. This place was great and I felt like I could trust them so much. I would not risk going anywhere else with my babies!

Southwest Animal Clinic
Good clinic; thoughtful and caring. My baby kitty liked the vet (he was a stray we adopted and he was scared of people). The staff was gentle with my kitty because they knew he was afraid. The clinic is small and older but I really like this clinic. GM

We love Dr. Butner. We have been coming here for years with multiple pets and think the entire staff is excellent. They always quote us before any treatments AND they have a board certified doctor on staff. I would not take my pets anywhere else.
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
