I took my Chow puppy Chester to see Dr. Jan @ Kershaw Animal Hosp. and was really treated well, from the hospital staff to Dr. Jan. She gave him a really good exam and was very gentle and talked to him all the way thru. I LOVE Kershaw Animal Hosp. and highly recommend the clinic to new clients looking for a Great Vet Hosp.!!!! :) :) :) :)

I have been taking my cats to Kershaw Animal Hospital since 1972. That's 41 years of 5 star service! Ths doctors, office staff, and vet assistants have always gone above and beyond as far as I am concerned. I am so lucky to have Dr. Jan Collins and her staff as my veterinary!

The employees of Kershaw in Westland are always quick to help when my dog (Loki) has an issue. She has been in there quite a few times between her surgeries/thyroid issues and the staff has made every visit easy to deal with.

Sue always takes extra special care of me and Abigal- anytime I call she is always so helpful. Sue always exceeds my expectations! It is always a pleasure to call and get Susan on the other end of the phone.

KAH is my first place of choice, and has been for many years. I know my pet will be taken care of properly here. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Thank you for always providing great service!

I'm always grateful for the staff and how they treat myself and Jax. They treat us like old friends and take great care of my boy. I wouldn't trust anyone else! 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
