The entire staff is friendly and caring toward your pet.They know them by name and they have alot of patience with their patients. The environment is clean and if a sick pet soils three floor, a staff member quickly cleans, disenfects and deodorizes the area. I love and trust this place with my fur baby.

Oh no. This place is disgusting! I was placed in a room with USED/BLOODY instruments around me. Bloody gauze, pee on the floor, rusty instruments and a bucket of bloody gauze. Omg. The smell is horrific! IF YOU WANT YOUR PET TO GET AN INFECTION, BRING EM HERE!

What I like most about Eighth Street Animal Hospital is that their doctors are very knowledgeable. The vet I was going to before wasn't up to date on everything and I didn't get the results I was looking for, but Eighth Street is great!

I have been bringing my pets to Eighth Street for over five years now. They have done a great job with my ferrets in the past and now with my dog. They are great people that love animals.

We have used their boarding services when we have gone out of town and are always highly satisfied. Oliver loves all the people there and they really seem to care about him, great service.

Dr. Lide is one of the most caring and honest veterinarians I have ever had the opportunity to have treat my family's animals. He has also assisted in helping us rehome stray animals.

Crickie and I had a very pleasant experience at Dr. Lide's practice. They were very gentle with my little furry friend(orange tabby) who for some reason was a little nervous. :)

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
