This vet should lose his license. The absolute worst bedside manner, coupled with negligent practices in veterinary medicine. Do not use this vet. He is rude, condescending, displays blatant disregard and apathy for the wellbeing of the animal. He needs to retire, as he is very obviously suffering from an overt case of compassion fatigue.

Be warned. The treatment we received borders on inhumane.I have always boarded my animals with a great veterinary hospital instead of a pet hotel so that if something happens, a great vet will be there to make sure my animal is all right. Wrong. I dropped my 13 month-old cat off with an entire bag of his favorites: blanket, toys, food, treats, brush, and a T-shirt I had intentionally slept in for three nights. The bag was never opened. My cat was shoved into a cage from Monday morning to Friday late afternoon. I was told he received no care because he kept hissing and swiping at the staff. Well, gee, I thought these people were veterinary professionals. If the cat's troubles, apparently acute anxiety, were ever called to the attention of Dr Otto, then he could not have cared less. He should have been administering a little kitty valium, or at least calling me to discuss the situation. I had phoned the office twice during the week to check on Stormy's well being and was told he wasn't very happy but he was doing just fine. The truth turned out to be that Otto's assistants are either liars or as dumb as door posts, perhaps both. They are all show and no go at University Animal Hospital. Cindy will greet you ebulliently and assure you your animal will be spoiled rotten. Instead, my cat's 'Away from Home kit' was never even opened. Stormy hovered in a corner of a cage for five days and four nights alone and unattended until I collected him. By that time, he was quite thin and dehydrated. I cannot describe how disappointed I am. You can bet UAH will never be intimidated by my 9 pound cat again.

Dr Otto is in it for the money. Simple as that. I would not recommend this place unless you are willing to spend at LEAST over $200 EACH visit. Find someone else to care for your pet.

I have been treated poorly by the staff at sooner vet on multiple occasions. The prices are cheap, but I'm going to change vets because it's not worth being treated like crap every time I come in. Also, they try to sell you things you don't need so they can make more money off you, then make you feel like a terrible pet owner of you don't buy them.

Cats Only Veterinary Clinic
This is a review of Dr. Gloria Leopard at Cats Only veterinary clinic in Norman, Oklahoma. If you love your cat, please do yourself a huge favor and avoid this clinic and Dr. Leopard like the plague. Dr. Leopard definitely seems to love money, but she does not seem to love animals. Dr. Leopard's diagnoses seem more like guess work; she will perform improvisational experiments on your cat, rather than utilizing actual medical expertise to find the true root of your cat's condition --- all at the expense of your cat's health and happiness, not to mention your pocketbook. Her bedside manner could not be worse and getting an intelligent answer to any completely reasonable question is like pulling teeth. As a result, you learn to walk on eggshells around her unprofessional attitude and immature temper, and avoid asking her important questions altogether. My nightmarish experiences with Dr. Leopard have led me to believe that she is a heartless person and a disgrace to the health care profession. Please read her other bad reviews and also note that Dr. Gloria Leopard DVM has been cited by the Oklahoma Veterinary Medical Examiner's Board --- a serious red flag, as the Board does not issue these citations lightly. Here is an excerpt from the citation, which is typical of her loose cannon approach to veterinary care: "Respondent's [Dr. Leopard] recommended treatment of the mixing of Gentocin into fluids for subcutaneous injection by the cat owners is not found as an accepted practice described in any known veterinary literature, probably due to the concerns length of treatment or drug toxicity. Also, despite increases in renal values, the use of Amikacin even though there was no indication of infection on the complete blood count, was cause for concern in treating Inara and could have contributed to the cats renal toxicity. A prudent veterinarian should have recognized renal compromise on the blood work performed and not used an aminoglycoside antibiotic at that time."I cannot recommend Dr. Leopard or the Cats Only clinic any less. If it were possible to give a zero-star rating, I would. AVOID

Spay Neuter Clinic Of Norman
We are well pleased with Sadie's visit to SpayXperts. I was very impressed when I arrived and the office staff greeted me and helped me get Sadie into the clinic. She has healed and has had no problems. The vet gave me informative information about tick collars and what to use. He then carried Sadie to the car for me. The place is very clean, efficient and professional. I would highly recommend SpayXperts to everyone!
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
