Mulvane Animal Clinic
I drive a long way to take my dog to Mulvane Animal Clinic. I pass about 12 vet clinics to get to Mulvane. I am on very limited income (who isn't). Last time I took Roxy in I was very concerned she had DM- Degenerative Myelitis. She did and the Dr spent so much time with me to help me understand like Roxy was his only patient. One thing important with DM is diet. I told him "you are going to cringe" as I explained she gets Pet Pride dry with Pedigree canned. Most all clinics have pet food for sale - including Mulvane - and they always tell me I need to use only thiers. I could not believe when the Dr told me her diet was fine!!

Mulvane Animal Clinic
Best vet I have ever been to. They really take the time to get to know you and the critter. Small town feeling when you go in. Lots of fact to face and talking, I dont mind waiting a few extra minutes in the waiting room to see them, my dogs are never scared but rather excited to see that we are going to the vet. They really are vell versed in how to treat the customers...and their humans :)
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
