Only if its an emergency!!! And if you take your pet there make sure they tell you all the costs upfront. Even the medicine. They will not tell you that you can get most of the at your local pharmacy and they may be covered in your health care. Everything costs three times as much as another vet in the area. We took our dog there because it was a sunday and they over charged because of it. The next day we took our dog to our regular vet and his estimate was one third. BEWARE!

Decent emergency care. We had to take our dog to Avets a couple weeks ago. We must say, they are very professional and thorough during the exam. They took the time to explain the treatment options to us and were understanding while we decided what to do. A worthwhile side note, Avets services are a tad bit more expensive than your regular vet. But considering the dire circumstances, my wife and I were just glad there was a place like Avets open on the weekend.

One of the best dog hospitals in Pittsburgh! The service is fast and the doctors smart, which are, both really important for emergencies! We took our dog here because he swallowed one of the new puppy's toys this past weekend. (I swear that dog is lacking brain cells because he is always getting into trouble.) Luckily, they were able to remove the toy before any serious health issues could happen. Thanks again Avets!

We had a good experience with Avets hospital. We didn't have to wait very long and were pleased with the quality of service. The price was around what we expected for an emergency visit and everything else; lab tests and medicine. They were compassionate to our dog and responded to all of our questions professionally. We recommend this place to others for their emergencies services.

They saved my dogs life. When old vet wouldn't help, I came here and they couldn't be nicer. Diagnosed my dog on the spot and sent me home with meds for her that started to help right away. Always nice to deal with since then. Very clean and professional. So glad I tried them!

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
