Dr. Hardt has been taking care of our extended families' pets for many years. Always extremely caring and treating only what was needed for our dogs and cats. He knows how much our pets mean to us and the entire staff are very capable and kind-hearted. First rate operation, highly recommended. I saw courtdhop's review of 04/13 here and wanted to comment on it. Really sad that their dog was so gravely ill that it passed away the day after they decided to take it in to the clinic. Obviously the dog went untreated far too long. Dr. Hardt has never charged anyone in my extended family for any service that our pets did not need. Those charges were always very reasonable. While I understand the grief and loss of courtdhop, in my considered opinion, an estimate for a substantial treatment fee would be for an immediate, absolutely necessary and extraordinary effort to save the puppy's life. If treatment was recommended I am confident that it had the highest probability of success.

I have been taking my pets to Dr. Hardt for ten years now. He and his staff are great! I wouldn't go anywhere else! They helped me get financial assistance from the humane society to help pay for all three of my cats to get spayed. One of my cats got sick one year, and they treated her for about 4 days and nights with an IV antibiotic in the clinic and then sent her home with another week's worth of antibiotic shots - all for super cheap. I was impressed. Another one of my cats has had an abcess drained and two tumors removed, and he performed the surgeries flawlessly. The incisions were minimal, and the price was again really cheap, compared to what I expected for that kind of service. I've tried other vets before and wasn't pleased. Dr. Hardt tops them all!

We have been using Dr. Hardt for 13 years- since we moved here. Not only has he cared for our pets, but for all the strays and dumped animals that have come to my home. We have had to put a few animals down, but we have saved more. We feel great trust in him and his ability. More important maybe is the fact that my animals trust him. I trust him more than any vet I've have used in the many states we have lived. He's not a big talker- but I always feel well informed when decisions need to be made. He's a good man and a great vet.

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
