Not kidding at all when I say that I would trust Dr. Bo with my own health care before any other human doc that I have met lately. I have three dogs that are like my children, one is a senior and there have been a few times lately when something has been wrong but nothing has made sense. Dr Bo will research the problem until he finds the most likely answer - tries the least drastic fix first and makes my old furr baby better again. He is wonderful, his only problem is that there are not two or three of him. The staff is wonderful - they all care very much for not only our pets but for us as pet parents too.

Fabulous place...I felt welcomed as soon as I walked through the front door. The entire staff were exceptional. The only part I dreaded about the visit was the "bill" but after looking at it I knew I had chosen the right place for my Smokey. Great service and better than just reasonable prices. I highly recommend Dr. Bo & The North Bay Animal Hospital for all your pets needs.
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
