Sun Valley Animal Hospital
My experience was terrible with sun valley animal hospital.. My pet wasnt important. It was about money and if i didnt have the proper amount they would not continue to give my pet the medical attention that it needed. My pet was hit by a car he had a bad cut on his head that was the size of a dime. They fixed the cut. But my pet also was having issues with the back of his body that were very painful and made it where he could not walk. After paying $455 they sent my pet home because i could not pay them for an xray or more cash up front to properly treat my pet. Since, my pet has gotten worse he is in terrible pain and can not stand on his back legs without colapsing in pain. What happened to the true ethics of being a doctor or the oath taken by those in the medical field? I guess it all goes out the window when money is an issue.. They wouldnt even bill me or set up a payment method. I walk in they say we need $200 up front before we accept or treat him and we need more $255 when you pick him up.. This is a hospital that has a thirst for money and not a thirst to treat our pets to the best of their ability regardless of a financial situation.. Vinson Garmon.
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
