Taylor Veterinary Clinic
I hate to negatively speak of the Taylor veterinary clinic because I'm sure there are lots of people that the clinic has helped their pets,but I have to speak of the murderous act I witnessed one afternoon at the Taylor vet clinic. I had brought a friends small dog to the clinic with a extremely large rip to her abdomen, caused by a vicious dog attack ,it was near closing time when I came in with the bleeding Chihuahua mix,the gash extreamly large bleeding all over her and myself.The owner of the pour little dog had a debt with the clinic,and I witnessed the staff make myself then the owner of the dog stand in the waiting room holding the dog until a check in the balance of $600 came to the clinic via the owners mother,it took roughly 20 mins.I think that was first wrong,second unfair for the dog to have to bare the pain longer that necessary, inhuman for sure in my eyes. Also the vibe given by the staff at Taylor vet.clinic seemed to be that none of them wanted to try to help the dog,
Tips & Advices
Bring medical records and medications that your pet is taking. Also, you should bring your ID and a form of payment.
Yes, there are veterinary clinics that only deal with emergency cases. They generally take walk-ins and referrals from family vets.
Yes, emergency vets treat dental emergencies and dental trauma. Freshly fractured teeth are the main category of dental injury that vets consider an emergency.
To prevent health emergencies, experts recommend supervising one’s pets, and trying to make sure they don’t get into emergency situations. A majority of emergency vet visits happen because animals were struck by cars, bit by other animals, or ingested toxins. Otherwise, the best way to prevent emergencies is by having a go-to vet you can call with any questions, and being vigilant about potential symptoms (i.e. runny stool, or trouble walking) as they appear but before they become extremely serious.
Experts say that the conditions that necessitate an emergency veterinarian visit include collapse, seizures, inability to walk, partial paralysis, and any difficulty breathing (non-stop panting, constant coughing, hyperventilation, or elevated heart rate). Gum color is often an indicator that something is wrong--especially blue gums or very pale gums. Excessive vomiting or a distended abdomen should be considered an emergency situation. Signs of any trauma or excessive bleeding should send your pet straight to the vet. Lastly, for cat owners, urinary obstruction is fatal if not treated, and generally occurs in male cats.
