My family and I have used Dr. Airhart since 1980 and LOVE him!! He gets to know his clients on a professional and personal level. He is honest and very educated. He is on the Board of Directors for the Texas Veterinary Medical Assn. and he was written up in the AVMA Journal as one of the top three veterinarians with the MOST CE hours out of hundreds of doctors. We highly recommend this doctor after years and years of experience with him. BEST doctor EVER!

My cat was really sick and appeared to be dying. I rushed it in to Dr. Airhart who did some testing and found out that Socks was diabetic. The doctor put him on medication and now Socks is doing so much better!! The clinic is always clean and they have added stained glass lights in the lobby that look classy. I have always been treated well by the staff and found them to be super nice and helpful. I always recommend this clinic to everyone.

This is the best animal hospital I have ever been to. My dog Sophye has been sick for awhile. Dr. Airhart was able to figure out what was wrong with her and now she is feeling great and back to her happy self. I found the staff to be nice and they seemed to genuinely care about us. Dr. Airhart is a very nice doctor and I feel like he explained the problem to us in a way we could understand. I recommend this clinic.
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
