Dr. Thielen is definitely a keeper. I am amazed with his service. To begin with, the assistant is very courteous and lovely. As soon as you walk in, you can tell they are animal lovers and they care for our babies. It was my first time experience and I left very happy and comfortable with the service. Dr. Thielen was very detailed and patient in explaining the pros and cons. To top if off, I then receive a call from Dr. Thielen on a Saturday. Yes, a Saturday, asking how my baby was doing. I was truly shocked cause I thought that only some regular physicians would do this. Moving forward, Ware Road Hospital is a keeper. Will definitely highly recommend.

My sister is a long haul trucker. She travels with a German Shepard that is less than friendly. After noticing some serious issues with the shepherds bladder, and not having internet access, she contacted me to help her find a 24/7 vet in the area. I gave her the name and number of the AMC. They took the dog immediately, handled her dog expertly yet with compassion and treated the Shepard's ailment better and faster than the Vet she uses at home. The Shepard is doing 100% better and is recovering faster than anticipated. Now both are back on the road with both feeling much better! Thank you for your great work!

Our dog had a sudden swelling in the face area due to an allergic reaction to something at 11:00 pm. A friend had told us that Pet Doctor 911 was open 24/7. We quickly took our dog there, and they almost immediately confirmed that it was an allergic reaction and gave our dog the appropriate shots. 15 min later our dog was almost back to normal; in fact if veterinarian had not acted that quickly, our dog's airways may have swollen to a point where she would have difficulty breathing, that in turn could have produce much more serious health issues.We are very happy and grateful for the service received.

I took my cat in to see Dr. Lamison since she had been experiencing some pain and bleeding and was lethargic. I was so afraid we would have to put her down. The Dr. found she had a bladder infection and we have been treating her with prescribed antibiotics. It has made such a difference in her already! She is more active and actually wants to go outside and explore the backyard. I am already thinking about getting her laser therapy for arthritis so she can be even more active.

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
