I love Dr Ohlinger...she is very good with my unsocial dogs and wonderful with the cats...Dr Hawkworth leaves much to be desired..The first time we went there right after we moved from Indiana..She was to give our GS pup shots and an exam..we came right before she had to house call to make about a cat..She was not very attentive and very short with us. I really did not want to give them another go, hubby said let's try again and We saw Dr. O her personality and how she deals with the Pups is amazing and her heart is good..Dr. Hawksworth was very very rude to me when I took the younger one in for her hysterectomy and I had a very hard time leaving her there. If it wasn't for Dr. O being the one performing the surgery I would have walked out and found another Vet If I ever have contact with Dr. Hawksworth again..I am going to let her know just how rude and nasty I feel she is. She does not need to blame me or any other owner for having a zonker dog..just found out today that all the Pups from that litter are the same. I took Sage because I could see these people might have dumped her and she had special needs...Dr. Hawksworth needs some table/bedside manners and to apologize to me before I ever let her touch my Furbabies. Not a good way to Welcome people from out of state..The impression I was left with was what a hateful unhappy woman.

Hello, My dog got into attacked by a Great Dane and was badly injured. I called the vet around 11pm for an emergency but she didn't want to come down till 5am because on the phone she didn't think his injuries sounded bad and the rain storm was scaring her for her to drive down. Now, my dog was already bleeding pretty bad on one of his cuts but I didn't know where it was coming from until I noticed the cut at 1am and it was deep. I took him up to Cornell to make sure he got properly treated. It was worth the drive because he got in right away and they fixed the problem. I left the other vet a message and a voicemail that we will not be making it down there at 5am beause it was already too late for my dog and I didn't want him to wait. He needed stitches for that deep gash and a X-ray for his leg that he was limping on. At that time, I wanted to make sure that my dog was going to be ok. He's my first priority out of everything else. I will be taking my dog up to Cornell for now on for his appointments.

Great, caring vets; prompt service; awesome prices; good location/facilities. What more can I say? They have consistently beat the prices of the "local competition" down the road for "procedures on our cats", and not by just a little, but a lot. I also appreciate their holisitic approach to animal medicine. When giving vaccines to our dog, we spaced them out by a week or do (just like we did for our human children).

I have found this veterinary clinic to be professional, courteous and ethical. When we brought a feral cat in that (sort of) adopted our family to be spayed, she put her under, only to find out that she had already been spayed (she had a tattoo)! When I went to pick her up, there was no charge! She could have charged me for her initial services, at least, but she didn't. I would recommend this vet.

Wonderful doctors who care about the four legged members of our families. Dr.s Margaret and Martha are sincere and honest and compassionate and I trust them completely with my furry friends. (I'm sure they would be the same with feathered and finned friends as well!)

Dr Hawksworth is the best vet. We take our little rescued dog to her and she has worked wonders on getting him adjusted to going to a vet. At first he was terrified but she is so patience and caring that now we have no problem taking him to see the doctor..

I cant believe that either one of these Vets has been rude to the lady who has the pit bull. Both these vets have been exceptionally professional and caring vets. It is hard to believe they would discriminate because the dog is a pit bull.

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
