From the first day that I walked into the Nashboro Animal Hospital, I was treated as a family member. The amount of compassion, professionalism, and dedication that my family received (and still continues to receive) is rivaled by none in any industry. When I brought my cat Mollie to them for help, they welcomed us with more than just a diagnosis. They offered support, care, constant phone calls updating me on her progress, and a multitude of hugs. The owner even went above and beyond to stay many hours past closing time to keep a watchful eye on my sickly Mollie, keeping me updated during the entire process.When it came to the diagnosis, long term care plans and procedures needed in my situation, every member of the staff made it a point to keep me involved. They would explicitly tell me EXACTLY what was needed, and why. If I didn't understand, they would educate me on what was happening to my little Mollie, and how WE were going to treat her together. Their level of honesty was a much needed relief to me, a stubborn cynic.Every time that there was a test needed or samples sent off, I was notified of the cost upfront. There were no hidden costs nor surprise bills. Every time that I was there, I visited my hurt cat. The staff here are firm believers that pet owners are a priority when in regard to the healing process. I got to visit Mollie everyday, and that is something that I truly appreciate given the circumstances surrounding her stay.When almost two months had passed since I first stepped foot through their doors, I found myself faced with the most difficult decision that any pet owner will ever have to make. I went to Nashboro Animal Hospital unannounced. There was no phone call, no appointment, no email. I walked in without warning. I was immediately greeted with a hug, and the owner could tell that something was wrong. We immediately began discussing the situation, and our options.That day was yesterday.Tonight I'm writing this review with tear-stained cheeks. I'm writing this because amidst all of the sadness I have for my Mollie, I couldn't be happier that I found this specific animal hospital. In over 30 years of pet ownership (cats, dogs, birds, fish, and turtles), I have never received the compassion that they gave me. The facilities are there, and they are clean. The doctors are professional, well versed, and will always answer your questions. What sets this hospital apart from the rest? Their dedication to a legacy that was started 1987 by Dr. Kitty Parker. They are truly "One of a Kind", and they are a much needed establishment in today's world. I will continue to be the best pet owner that I can be, and I will never even consider taking my pets to a different hospital.

We have used these guys twice and have been so impressed by them! This place is clean, the staff is very kind (and considering the level of stress I am sure they are under, I think this is fantastic) and the price is cry reasonable! Dr. Buford that is there on Sunday's is the absolute best!!! They also have an ICU unit there. They have people coming in to visit their sick pets and they are always so kind to them and they never rush them. I just love these guys!!

The vet and the vet techs were all so caring and sweet to my cat. He definitely doesn't like being made to stay still so he squirms a lot. They were very patient with him when they were checking him out, and very gentle. I also liked they let me in the room when he was getting checked out. Prices are very fair and reasonable. They''re definitely going to stay as the only vet for my cat.

Fantastic professional service, friendly folks, and a great facility. Expensive, but all emergency services like this are expensive. I would highly recommend this facility, and would even recommend you drive a little further to come here. I've been to others and they don't come close.

Amazing! I would 100% recommend NVS to a friend. Very friendly staff & talented doctors. Nice waiting area. They seem to be very aware of the environment as well. A lot of environmental friendly items throughout the building. Overall I had a great experience.

Great office, but they do charge a lot for their services. The technicians are all really friendly and kind, but we quit going there because I felt that they were over charging. However, they are all great professionals, and they care for the animals.

Tips & Advices
Bring medical records and medications that your pet is taking. Also, you should bring your ID and a form of payment.
Yes, there are veterinary clinics that only deal with emergency cases. They generally take walk-ins and referrals from family vets.
Yes, emergency vets treat dental emergencies and dental trauma. Freshly fractured teeth are the main category of dental injury that vets consider an emergency.
To prevent health emergencies, experts recommend supervising one’s pets, and trying to make sure they don’t get into emergency situations. A majority of emergency vet visits happen because animals were struck by cars, bit by other animals, or ingested toxins. Otherwise, the best way to prevent emergencies is by having a go-to vet you can call with any questions, and being vigilant about potential symptoms (i.e. runny stool, or trouble walking) as they appear but before they become extremely serious.
Experts say that the conditions that necessitate an emergency veterinarian visit include collapse, seizures, inability to walk, partial paralysis, and any difficulty breathing (non-stop panting, constant coughing, hyperventilation, or elevated heart rate). Gum color is often an indicator that something is wrong--especially blue gums or very pale gums. Excessive vomiting or a distended abdomen should be considered an emergency situation. Signs of any trauma or excessive bleeding should send your pet straight to the vet. Lastly, for cat owners, urinary obstruction is fatal if not treated, and generally occurs in male cats.
