I took my Rowdy to this clinic at midnight with a problem where he had chewed on a bone and stopped eating. He was dehydrated and they kept him over night billed for $787.00 for 8 hours of watching him. Three weeks later he had to be put down and I paid for cremation from this same clinic and his humane put down in full. When I went to pick him up they told me they were holding his ashes till all bills were paid. They never sent me one billing period and four years later all of sudden pulling a credit report guess what I saw--yes that's right it was now on credit report. And I haven't even gotten one response from their accounting office after faxing them and sending them several letters and now Rowdy's ashes are gone forever.

I would like people out there to know what happened to us with this place. Less than 6 months ago I took my Pomeranian to them. His bowl movements were nothing but blood. He wasn't running a fever or acting like he was sick. The vet didn't seem concerned until I told her that he threw up the day before. So she finally decided to run some tests and found out that he had an infection, she couldn't tell me what kind of infection. The only answer that I got from her is "I don't know" They kept our little boy over night and released the next day. I took him back, I think it was a week later and they cleared him. Yesterday I had to put my baby boy down. He had been diabetic for quite some time, he developed another infection and went septic. My little trooper didn't show us how sick he was until the infection went completely through his little body. I don't want this hardship to happen to someone else, so please beware.
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
