We've been clients since Drs Perez and Diaz took over the practice. Over the years they have treated all of our nine dogs and three birds. We could not possibly be more pleased and grateful. The Drs are very skilled, professional and compassionate. Yes they are able to show clinical professionalism and compassion at the same time. We have had six major dog surgeries done there with the best possible outcomes. The staff is great. A few years ago I arrived on their door step one morning before opening with a dog who was nearly dead. Nancy got her hocked up to oxygen and kept her going till surgery could be done. We had that dog another two good happy years. Thanks again Nancy. Lake Howell Clinic is great.

We adopted a Border Collie 7 years ago and have been taking her to Dr. Perez since we brought her home. Dr. Perez has been caring and extremely competent in assisting us with basic health care and any special problems that have arisen. The staff has been helpful, attentive, and kind to our pets. In addition, they provided excellent care to my senior citizen cat. I am certain that the level of care we received through Dr. Perez helped our cat live to be beyond 23 years old.

Dr. Jordan and her staff are fantastic! I just started using Dr. Jordan when my vet retired. I was slow at finding another vet because it is hard to trust your babies with anyone...I had an emergency with my cat and they took her in right away...took care of the problem and I have found my new vet! The prices are reasonable and the care is above and beyond any I have seen in a very long time! HIghly recommend!!

Dr. Diaz and his staff are very experienced with exotic animals and are willing to help with wild ones as well, especially turtles and tortoises. They work closely with Turtles USA (a turtle rescue) and have helped with snakes as well. They are gentle with the animals and always have the animal's best interest at heart.

I love both of the doctors. They have treated 4 of my dogs and 3 of my guinea pigs.They are very caring and knowledgable. I feel safe in their hands and they've ALWAYS considered cost when ordering tests.I wouldn't go anywhere else.And I can't say enough about their staff too.They are fabulous - truly!
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
