I consider myself very lucky to have Dr. Case and Dr. McConnell and the staff at Boonsboro Animal Hospital for the care of my three Standard Poodles. All three are active dogs who compete in a variety of sports, and their fitness and soundness is of paramount importance to me. I have complete confidence that no matter what I bring them, they will do whatever research is necessary to give us state-of-the-art care and keep me involved every step of the way. I attribute all my dogs' good health, quality of life and longevity to the care we've gotten at Boonsboro Animal Hospital over these past 28.5 years.

The staff are fantastic. Very friendly. The other vets I have been to (animal hospital of Lynchburg and diamond hill) are ok, but here they are a step above the rest. My dog had an issue that needed to be addressed right away. I was freaking out and they took us within the hour. They explained everything to me as it was happening. I knew what was going on the whole examination. They were gentle with my dog. Very friendly people! They made me feel so at ease. They also sat down and laid out the prices upfront, they didn't just do something and charge me for it. I will definitely use them again.

Jude, our 18 month old Golden Retriever, loved staying in this kennel. He is somewhat separation anxious and we hesitated to leave him for the first time. He was given a complimentary examination. When we picked him up 4 days later, he came home with a note saying they loved him, he was "goofy" and he made 2 new friends. We will definitely board him there in the future. The staff was friendly and interested in his well being both physically and emotionally.Bobbi & Randy Hurst

The staff and Dr. Dixon are very professional but they go the extra mile and put in the bed side manners. Our kitty fell and we thought he broke his leg. Dr. Dixon worked after hours to help. She diagnosed a spinal injury and guided us through the whole ordeal. She was unbelievably fair with her charge. We are grateful and will always trust her medical advise and billing. She has a natural understanding and kindness towards her animal patients.

I have taken 8 dogs over a 30 yr period to Dr Case and staff. I have always found them to be an extremely knowledgeable and caring group. I have always boarded my dogs there as well. Beth runs a terrific kennel and the dogs are never scared or apprehensive about going there. I would highly recommend them.

Seven Hills Animal Hospital
We have been going to Seven Hills for years, since the 80's. Dr. Bradshaw and his team run a family owned business that gives great care to animals. I would highly recommend taking your pets here, they will be in great hands.
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
