I literally never write reviews for anything, but my experience here was so incredible I had to come and share it with everyone. I wish I could give them more than 5 stars.My 10 month old puppy woke up paralyzed one morning. I took him to a DIFFERENT emergency vet right away, who told me unless I paid $5,000 for a surgery my pup would never walk again. That wasn't in my budget, and the vet told me I needed to put him down- that he would never walk again. Distraught, I brought my puppy home so my boyfriend could say one last goodbye... Then we PLANNED to euthanize him the next morning together. That night however, we decided to go get a second opinion (even though first vet seemed 100% positive of the condition) We went to BluePearl, since it was one of the few places open. The staff was so kind. I will say this, we had to wait about 3 hours, but I would have waited 3 more for the great service we received. The staff was so kind. They checked in with us regularly, and answered all our questions. Then the vet came in- Dr. Cullman-Clark!!! I ADORE THIS WOMAN! She was so kind, apologized for the delay (we had come on an unusually busy night), and took her time with us. She did not rush us one bit. She suggested it was a different condition, and said to wait a few days and look for improvement. She even went to the back and MADE us a sling out of medical material to help him walk. Well guess what guys- 3 days later and my little pup is out there running around and walking!! Almost back perfect, although he cant go up or down steps yet, its only been 3 days. If I had trusted the first vet, he would have never even been given a chance, or I would be $5,000 in debt!!Not only that, but the vet called me to check, and then called again on her OFF day to check on my puppy and me!! How kind is that? She thinks he should be back normal within a week or two. I would suggest ANYONE in any type of emergency situation to come here first before anywhere else. I have never met anyone who so genuinely cares about their patients. Cost me $85 dollars :-)THANK YOU BLUEPEARL

Friday 6-19 I have used them for years but will not go back. His daughter Stephanie talked to my husband like he was not human!! Dr Simms has known my husband since he was a kid. So when he sees my husband he wants to talk to him. Stephanie told us we took too much time with him (15 minutes) and they would all have to work later. She kept on for at least 5 minutes and said I am not teasing!! Dr Simms and Mrs Simms are very nice people but their daughter is not. WAS VERY RUDE TO US! Will not be back to Simms!! Sorry doc.Friday 6-26Dr Sims called us and could not apologize enough. he said it is his office and if he wanted to talk to a customer 15 minutes or an hour and 15 minutes, it is his right to do so. He was sincerely sorry we had to go through that and assured us it would never happen again .

Sims Animal Hospital
Since, 1991, I have taken every fur baby I have owned to Dr Sims. Thru thick & thin $ times, my divorce, my remarriage, through the 1st visits by my babies-to tears during their last moments where he simply put a loving hand on both mine & my son's shoulders, & said he understood & was sorry. As children have grown, he always asks about them, & even cares for their fur babies. He never took sides in my divorce, & fairly took care of babies on both sides. I do miss his daughter Stephanie at the front desk. I guess kids just have to leave the nest. When he removed a fatty tumor from by most favorite & closely loved fur baby, he charged 1/4th what Metropolitan Veterinary on Bluegrass Pkwy had charged me, and the tumor was MUCH worse when he did the surgery. I warned him that he could never retire!

Sims, Kenneth J DVM
I have been going to Sims Animal Hospital since 2001 when I was new to the area and living in St. Matthews and was looking for a vet that had evening and weekend hours like Sims. Dr. Sims and Dr. Evans have both been wonderful, along with the staff. We have both dogs and cats and have had them to Sims over the past 9 years and have been very pleased with the services and care of our cats and dogs. From dealing with epilepsy in one of our dogs and getting that under control and maintained, to instructing me how to give shots to a cat we rescued... Dr. Sims and Dr. Evans have been wonderful. I continue to drive 25 minutes to Sims one way because they provide great service for a fair price and would highly recommend Sims Animal Hospital.

Gaslight Square Animal Hospital
I visited this office for the first time with my new puppy. When I bought my puppy he had kennel cough. When I took him to the vet it seemed like the doctor couldn't care less. He didnt answer any of my questions. He just gave him medicine and we left. I asked why my puppy had diahhera, no answer. I asked about kennel cough and got no answer. Recently I visited a different vet office that my family members go to. I learned more than enough about kennel cough and all my questions were answer and more. I feel like they were very unprofessional. I am not happy with this vet and I will not be returning.

Animal Emergency Center
We had an emergency in the middle of the night with one of our two dogs and brought her in bc it was the closest option to our home. We felt like while the service was basic and straight forward as well as was high quality and effective. The vet did not try to push us to run extra tests and took the most financially conservative route (while maintaining medical efficacy). Not exactly a posh location or clinic but good people, good service and we left an emergency vet visit without a huge bill and a healthier dog. I would certainly recommend them based on that experience.

Gaslight Square Animal Hospital
We have had nothing but excellent care from Dr. Berge and his staff. We take all 3 of our pets (2 cats and one dog) and have always received wonderful service. When one of our cats was diagnosed with diabetes I was trained on how to administer the insulin and they took the time to answer all of my questions. The same when our dog needed an xray, it was shown and explained to me and I was given a copy on a CD if needed in the future or for after hours care. I wouldn't go anyplace else!! We have been very happy customers and patients for over 6 years.

Seneca Animal Hospital
I have been taking my sods and cats to Seneca Animal Hospital for many years. I love Drs. Greene and Viney for they treat my animals with such care. They do tests only if you want them, but have always taken care of their needs. They both talk about a variety of options. When I lost my dog ( large and 15 yrs old), I was touched by the caring note that Dr. Greene sent to me. More importantly, my animals feel comfortable at the office.My only concern has been a long wait at times.

Banfield Pet Hospital
The Vets that work here are very honest and knowledgeable and you can tell they work there because of their love for animals. This place is also very reasonable on their pricing and offer many different option on payments. I'm always greeted with a smile and friendly face every time I walk up to the counter, and since Banfield is located in petsmart I can shop while I wait. I honestly don't expect to ever have to switch animal hospitals.

Crockett Veterinary Hospital
Dr. Crockett is an extraordinary diagnostician; there is no better. The previous vet charged huge $ for all kinds of "required" shots. Dr. Crockett recommends only what is needed. Both he and his entire staff are gentle, kind, true animal lovers. My dogs get excited and wag their tails when we arrive! I was disappointed reading the bad review below. Based on our 10 years with Dr. Crockett, it is disparaging and simply untrue.
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
