Nixa Animal Hospital
We have taken all of our animals to Dr. Molly (4 dogs, 1 cat) over the last 9 years. She and her wonderful staff have provided first-rate care to all of them. I can't recommend a veterinarian more enthusiastically than I do Dr. Ramsey and Nixa Animal Hospital. In 35 years of pet ownership I can honestly say I have never had a vet with more expertise and compassion. I continue to drive from Springfield to Nixa to make sure my animals remain under her care.

Dr. Ramsey has been my vet for about 10 years now. I have nothing but amazing things to say about her and her practice. Dr. Ramsey was one of those vet students who finished school early because she was so smart. I bet she was even top of her class back in college and ver school. She offers her amazing talents to her clients and their owners at more than reasonable rates.Most important: Dr. Ramsey saved my dogs life. My 3 year old golden retriever came down with some rare disease (idiopathic chylothorax as it would eventually be named). I brought the dog in for unusual breathing I noticed. Doctor Molly took x-rays, identified a build up of fluid in his chest, and drained over 2 liters of chylous fluid out of my dogs chest. She recommended we go to the vet school at the University of Missouri to talk with their specialists. She even offered a voucher to help me cover the cost of the visit because I was a college student at the time and she knew it would probably be hard for me to afford all of this.I didn't listen to her though. Instead I immediately went to a specialist in St. Louis because I had a family there and it seemed more cost effective than going with her recommendation. They examined my dog," in St. Louis and gave me the diagnosis I mentioned above, as well as recommending that I give up on the dog and put him down.Like most people who care about their pets, I wasn't ready to give up. So I went to the MU clinic like Dr. Ramsey recommended. A few surgeries later, they had saved my dogs life. He is still alive and happy and healthy today. There is no better veterinarian in the area than Dr. Ramsey. You read my story. This lady and this place could save your best friend's life... they saved my best friend's life. :)

We have gone to Dr molly for roughly 10 years now and she has treated our pets from puppy stage through the end. She and her staff are amazing! They are caring and fair in all of their interactions with us. We love our dogs and wouldn't trust them with anyone else.

Nixa Animal Hospital
I don't know where to start with how bad the visit was compared to the other Vet with the same dogs over the years. The first Red Flag was when the dog "or pet" out of the room away from the owners watchful eye. The second Red Flag was when the dog return immediately goes between me and the wall and under the furniture never done that before. Without talking or asking any info the UP-Selling starts right off. Never been so mad or disgusted with a business in my life. Our dog Miley cowering under the chair in the corner and the huge hit to the bank account no second chance here. Miley has not pulled out of it total she final came out of bathroom some time during the night. Going on how mad I am with all of it won't change a thing and it won't fix anything. I will be making the 45 minute drive the opposite direction to our old Vet.If you want ripped off go to Nixa Animal Hospital. Facebook staged photo shoot don't tell the real story of the place.

Gentle Care Animal Hospital
Dr. Kelly at Gentle Care is one of the most caring vets I have ever encountered! She has gone above and beyond for us with our dogs and we are really impressed with her. The front staff is also very caring.

Dr. Molly Ramsey has been caring for our animals for several years. They don't hesistate to jump in the car when we say "let's go to Dr. Molly's!" She's very thorough in her exams and makes sure to explain everything to us. She's just as good at soothing anxious pet parents. She's even come to our home for house calls and is always available for questions, even by cellphone or text. When prescribing medications or recommending treatments, she always takes cost into consideration. She once called four area pharmacies to find the cheapest place to get our prescription filled. Her staff is every bit as wonderful. She keeps up with the latest technologies and developments in the field, and consults mentors and specialists to help explore all options. I not only recommend her to all our friends; I wish she could be my doctor!

We had a young dog who started going into liver failure and I took her here. We no longer have a dog. "Dr." Ramsey when I said that it might be aflatoxin from corn in our compost kept correcting me by saying alfatoxin........which it is is called aflatoxin. She also kept saying that it might be something "congeneral" I was wondering if maybe this was a word I was unfamiliar with, but thought she might be meaning to say "congenital" which is in fact a word. However she continued using the word congeneral, which is not a word. I should have taken my dog out of their sooner. Now my beloved family pet lives in a box on the shelf. It's your call, but this was my experience.

Cobblestone Veterinary Hospital
I've been going to this clinic for about 8 years. If you go you have to ask for Dr. Robertson.One of the lady vets there does not know what she is doing. Took my ailing dog to her because my dog had a baseball sized lump in her throat. She wouldn't even look at the lump and took x-rays of her lungs saying that was the problem. Took the dog to another vet and diagnosed it as cancer so we had to put the dog down.All I can say is that Dr. Robertson has taken extremely good care of our dogs and cats in the past. He is an outstanding veterinarian, but not so sure on the other 2 ladies there.....
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
