Hills and Dales Veterinary Clinic
My Pug has suffered for years with a skin condition which caused him to scratch like crazy along with a spot on his eye. In the past there had not been much help by way of his vet. I am new in the area and my Pug had an injury to his paw. I called for an appointment and they were able to get us in to see the doctor within 2 hours. The DVM took care of the injury but also addressed the other issues with treatment that was never mentioned by the previous DVM. Too soon to tell if it (the treatment) will clear up the issues, but I am hopeful as well as grateful for the new options. Extremely nice office staff and technicians as well. I think we found my baby a new "puppyatrician".

The staff are friendly, the doctor's are the best.I have had to use them several times and each time my pet received the best care possible in a timely manner. You have to understand this IS like an emergency room so first come first serve is not the normal proceedure, the sickest pet gets seen first and I think some people don't think of that as they're sitting there complaining. And I don't think they realize how big and busy it is behind those exam room walls.I would tell everyone in an emergency after regular vet hours go straight to the DEVC, it's the best!
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
