Ocala Square Animal Clinic
Unfortunately, my two dogs became aggressive with each other. I was very afraid of my small dog's wellbeing; his injuries appeared life threatening. What was worse was that it was late afternoon; a time when most vet clinics were about to close. Not wanting to give up, I quickly called several places that either declined treatment or seem disinterested; were encouraging me that he'd be fine, even though his neck was starting to swell.Thankfully, when I took him to this clinic, they not only, willing, stayed opened after hours but they were quick to react to his injuries, inform me of his condition, and practically save his life. They were also willing to work out the issues with the bill. Not prepared for taking him to the vet due to a situation that actually happened, I needed time to pay them off and they gave me that time. I would recommend this clinic to someone else. And I've certainly made this clinic a must-go-to for my animals. I want nothing but the best for my animals and treat them like my family and it seems as though the staff feel the same.

I did not experience the friendliness of the vet nor the technician during my visit with a little sick female fur baby I grew to love in a very short 36 hours of being in my presence. Instead both seemed cold with no real concern for the little one that was perhaps a cast-away by a heartless human due to her illness. A physical exam that one would expect was not done, however two lab tests were supposedly done. A good deed was, however, offered by the female doctor and I accepted out of total appreciation. Perhaps it was an off day, however I will seek out care from another animal clinic if need be in the future.

A Family Veterinarian
Dr. Ed and his staff are great caring people. I don't worry about leaving my dogs with them because I know they will treat them as well if not better than I would. Dr. Ed has been a God send for my beagle with her skin disorder. My lab received the best care when he had his surgery at A Family Veterinarian. He had a fast recovery and the cost was fair for the type of work he had done. We are treated like family, I would recommend A Family Veterinarian for your family pets.

Brick City Cat Hospital
Brick City Cat Hospital is the ONLY place to bring your cat, if you want the best veterinary care available in the Ocala area. I have been bringing my cats to Dr. Salpeter for over seven years. They saved my first cat from dying from bowel disease, and now my second who has gone through hell with feline herpes, The staff is terrific--all of them. In my opinion, if you own a cat, you should bring them to Brick City Cat Hospital for the best care they can receive.

This is everything a great vet clinic should be - they really care about your animals and go the extra mile to help. They will even come out to your home if needed (if you have a lot of animals, are elderly or infirm, or have a "special case" animal). I have 4 dogs and 9 cats and am always there for supplies, nail trims, regular checkups and emergencies and have always been so happy with the way they care for my pets.

From the first moment I was there, it's obvious that the staff truly cares and respects animals. I am a Mom/slave to 2 cats and have had several foster cats, and I trust this office 100%. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Ed and his staff to anyone! *I am not employed there nor do I know anyone in the office personally. My honest review is based on all of my experiences as a patients' owner.

Extremely friendly and caring staff. Dr. Ed was very patient with our two cats and very inquisitive 10 year old girls! Our cats are usually very scared and upset. They were both calm and one sat on my daughter's lap purring following the exam! The facility is beautiful and has state of the art equipment to care for your pet. I will recommend Dr. Ed and his clinic to all I know.

Shady Road Veterinary Clinic Inc
Since moving to Ocala, we have used Shady Road Veterinary Clinic. At first we went because it is close to our home. Now we know Dr. Holly Vance and her staff. They treat us professionally and our pets gently while do what must be done for them. We plan to continue using this clinic as long as we live here and have pets.Mary Tabor-Rhodes

Thank you Dr. Menard so much for taking care of Trigger's surgery. If not for you and your staff we would most certainly have lost him. Your staff was so kind on all our visits and made us feel welcome even though I know we were often in the way. We will tell all our family and friends about you. Thanks the most.

South Ocala Animal Clinic
I have been taking my dog and rabbits to this clinic for over 2 years and although we relocated we still use this clinic for our animals. We have had emergencies and regular visits and the staff here are professional, the prices are very fair and the experience of both Veterinarians are above and beyond!
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
