First I am amazed at the previous reviews. So I called the vet to ask why such bad reviews. Aha this location no longer has Dr, Gill. The new vet is Dr. Bassi . I am so happy to hear this as I found Dr. Bassi to be one of the best vets I have ever used. He was a wonderfully warm and knowledgeable Dr. He diagnosed my best friend Pepper as having a staph skin infection when I was told by another vet it was yeast. I was ecstatic as staph is simply antibiotics and yeast problems on skin is very difficult and costly to treat. I also needed Peppers toenails trimmed as he practically has a heart attack if you attempt to trim. So he has to be sedated. 3 other vets have trimmed his nails while sedated and not once did they mention it would be best to cut and cauterize his nails. Dr Bassi did this to pepper which was a fantastic idea. He wouldn't need them cut for a lot longer than the other vets that sedated and barely trimmed them, I assume it was because I would have to bring him back much sooner. Dr. Bassi saved me money and it was the best job ever done on my boy. He also explained to me all about the staph infection, because I had researched the yeast and was certain it was indeed yeast due to the foul smell. He was just an all around great veterinarian. My nephew who brought pepper in with me was equally impressed by his warm and friendly personality. This is great as I live very close . It is a good feeling to trust a vet with your pet, especially when being sedated and having to leave them. I will see you again Dr. Bassi and thank you so much for being a good vet. I am a real customer. My name is Stefanie Vargas and I live in the La Loma area. Just saying because of people that think there are fake yelps. Mine is a real review and I am happy to say so.

We rescued a dog and took him to our regular vet...they could not find out what was wrong with him...after thousands of dollars and tons of useless medicine.One visit to Maze/Beckwith Animal Hospital and an x-ray they discovered the problem, did surgery, and our dog is doing GREAT now!Jenny Chatfield has AMAZING bedside(dog side) manners and spent a ton of time with us, explaining the precedure and recovery for our dog. She even came in on Sunday so we could see our dog after surgery!Their staff is so friendly and knew us by name after only one visit. I look forward to a long relationship with our new vet office.

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
