I would highly recommend Dr. Whitlow. He actually cares about the animals he treats, I've used other vets that seem to care about the almighty dollar and could care less about your pet. We had an emergency situation with an older mare that needed stitches in her fetlock he arrived quickly, cleaned her up, stitched her up, and was really glad to be of service. In the past, with other vets, they seemed bothered by the inconvenience. I would give Travis Whitlow 10 stars if possible.

My 13 year old dog, Pepper, received his first grooming from Jennifer Sorey, Groomer at the Avenue Animal Hospital in Mt Juliet, yesterday. We both agree that this was the best grooming he has ever received. Pepper and I couldn't be happier and have found us an excellent, experienced, highly skilled groomer. Highly recommend her.

I only ever use Dr. Whitlow now, he really knows his stuff, is always available and actually cares, unlike some other vets who I won't be calling again.

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
