I began taking my German shepherd, Kirra, to Dr. Fowler in Dec 2012 when she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer, hemangiosarcoma. Dr. Fowler was highly recommended by a friend who had taken her dog who has cancer as well. Dr. Fowler began with an assessment with all Kirra's current records, xrays, lab reports, etc from conventional vets. She began with creating a diet based around her cancer known as the "cancer diet". It was made of foods that would aid her condition and I that I could make easily at home. Next, she put my dog on certain Chinese herbs that were based around her cancer and what she was lacking (she had become anemic). Kirra was a fussy eater and could sniff out any medicine but Dr. Fowler always had a solution for this! She was always on hand for any questions (and trust me I had MANY). Along with the diet and herbs we did acupuncture and B12 shots on Kirra. Her office was warm and welcoming. The acupuncture treatments would take 30 minutes to an hour and as Kirra would lie there relaxed, Dr. Fowler and I would chat and she would calm me and reassure me with Kirra's treatment, condition and overall health.Kirra was given weeks to months by Auburn Veterinary Hospital. I feel that with Dr. Fowler's diet, herbs, and acupuncture Kirra had a happy and lively 3 months. She was given a grime diagnosis by conventional vets and treated with chemotherapy. Dr Fowler helped treat Kirra's side effects from chemo with acupuncture and it worked, instantly. Kirra once walked in to her office and she had not eaten in 2 days. Dr Fowler tried giving her treats. No go. After hitting appetite stimulant points on Kirra with acupuncture, right after she ate up all the treats and her appetite came back.Unfortunately with all the treatment with conventional and holistic medicine, the inevitable happened and Kirra began to hemorrhage. All I wanted was for my baby to be comfortable and home when the time came. Dr. Fowler drove an hour and a half to my house and ended my baby's suffering. She made it as peaceful as it could have been. I held her the whole time. Dr. Fowler then made all the arrangements for me and I had to do nothing which was so helpful at such a devastating time.I can not say enough good things about Dr. Fowler. I HIGHLY recommend her and her wonderful services. Since I had started seeing her for Kirra I have recommended her to all my friends and coworkers who have loved animals from cats to horses. She has the BEST bedside manner and truly wants the best for you and your beloved pet. She will be honest with you and that is sometimes hard to hear but it is in the best interest of your beloved pet.Thank you Dr Fowler for making a devastating event peaceful, calm and comforting. She was able to end my baby's suffering so compassionately. Words can not express my gratitude and I am forever grateful. Kirra fell asleep peaceful in my arms at our home where she was most comfortable. I felt her last breath and was able to tell her how much I loved her the whole time. That is all I could ever wish for at that time and Dr. Fowler made that possible.

I went to Agape for a neuter consoltation for my 5 month old puppy. It was nice on the inside (as I was hoping) and smelled like dog shampoo. There was one day before me, and she was only there to get her dogs nails trimmed. My appt was at 9:00, by 9:40 I was finally in a room. The nurse was very friendly and talkative. When the actual Dr. came in he had blood on his hands and all in his fingernails.... FRESH BLOOD... you could smell it. Totally DISGUSTING. He petted my puppy and I tried to be nice and picked my puppy off the table. The consoltation was $25.00... I left there spending $70.00. Not very happy about that. The Dr. needed to check my puupys ears, my puppy wouldnt stand still so he used a long q-tip. I didn't know he was going to charge me $20.00 for him to stick a q-tip in my puppys ears (or I would have told him not to) then they told me my puppy had ear mites. I gladly paid the $20.00 for the medicine. Then as I was told to wait back in the waiting room, the nice nurse came out and gave me a puppy packet, she told me I could leave and the nurse at the front desk would give me a small bag of dog food for my pup. I paid the $70.00 and asked the nurse at the desk about the puppy food and she said that was the packet... made no sense to me but I didnt feel like arguing over something free. All in all, I dont think I will go back for the neuter. Can't believe the Dr. came in the room I was in and touched my dog will fresh blood on his hands and in his fingernails. Unprofessional at the least.

Callaway Animal Hospital
We called quite a few vets in the Panama City area (we live on the Fountain/Marianna line), we decided to trust Callaway Animal Hospital with Peanut Butter's care, and here's why: From the initial phone call, to the special arrangements for his entry into the Callaway Animal Hospital (in a large kennel) and to his two treatments (one the afternoon we brought him in and the other the next morning)--it was all "First Class." The place was immaculate, and EVERYONE there had a smile and knowledgeable and encouraging words. We had an unfortunate occurrence happen to our beloved Peanut Butter. To us, he is not a dog--but a member of our family. After trying to heal him at home for two weeks--Peanut Butter had a setback from playing and was in serious pain--which is what led us to our vet search. The Doctor: Doctor Korda systematically worked her way from his head to his tail and found the problem in less than five minutes. She confirmed her diagnosis with x-rays the next morning. It would be next to impossible to find a better vet anywhere.

We were very fortunate to find Dr. Fowler when our 6 year old Australian Shepherd began losing control of her hind legs. After a thorough exam and background of Daisy's condition, Dr. Fowler started Daisy on acupuncture, Chinese herbs to relieve pain and inflammation and a home cooked diet. She referred us to UofFl to confirm Daisy's diagnosis of IVDD. Basically, arthritis in her vertebrae. We chose not to have surgery as there was little assurance the condition would be better or not return. Dr. Fowler was an important part of keeping Daisy pain-free and comfortable for the next year and a half. When the time came, Dr. Fowler came to our house to euthanize Daisy so she could be at home with us when she crossed over. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Fowler and her tech Jen. They treat their patients like their own animals, and are very gentle and loving in their care.

We had to take our beloved lab to Agape for vomitting and weight. loss. It was our first visit (recommended by a family member) The staff and Dr. Collier were great. The office was very clean and smelled great. He had to have surgury for what we belived at the time was a blockage do to him swallowing a foriegn object. Dr Collier called us from the sugurgy room to let us know out baby boy had a growth and fungus that had spread throught his body. In the in we were unable to save him, but the stafff and Dr.s have been amazing. Dr Collier has gone above and beyond the call of duty in doing additional test to try and give us answers to what caused his illiness. They have even continued to call us and check on us three weeks later. I will continue to use Agape and Dr. Collier with our other animals in the future.

Dr Fowler has made me a true believer in Alternative medicine. My labrador (age 10 at the time) was diagnosed with nasal cancer 22 months ago and is still alive and well and cancer FREE. The combination of western medicine (radiation and chemo) combined with acupuncture for his immune system and anti-cancer herbs has saved his life. He is the only dog in the COUNTRY still in a Pfizer Palladia study for nasal cancer. All other dogs in the study have passed on or their cancer did not respond to treatment. The difference with Boz (now 12) is that he did acupuncture and herbs with Dr Fowler. Auburn Veterinary Clinic calls Boz their poster dog. Dr. Fowler's treatment has made a huge impact in our lives.

My little Min-Pin Oliver was attacked by a bull dog. I tried to call my regular vet, Parkway Animal Hospital at 7:30 at night. They wanted me to go all the way to Dothan, Alabama for an emergency visit. I called every vet in town. Dr. Hayden was the ONLY doctor that agreed to see Oliver. Thank God for people like Dr. and Mrs. Hayden. I have now found my new vet. If your animal has an emergency you must be able to contact your vet.

My puppy injured her leg after hours. My regular vet had another on call. He was going to come in and give her a pain shot. No other treatment. I called every vet in Bay County. Dr. Hayden was the only vet willing to see her because she wasn't his client. Turns out her leg was broken. They have all been excellent!

Tips & Advices
Bring medical records and medications that your pet is taking. Also, you should bring your ID and a form of payment.
Yes, there are veterinary clinics that only deal with emergency cases. They generally take walk-ins and referrals from family vets.
Yes, emergency vets treat dental emergencies and dental trauma. Freshly fractured teeth are the main category of dental injury that vets consider an emergency.
To prevent health emergencies, experts recommend supervising one’s pets, and trying to make sure they don’t get into emergency situations. A majority of emergency vet visits happen because animals were struck by cars, bit by other animals, or ingested toxins. Otherwise, the best way to prevent emergencies is by having a go-to vet you can call with any questions, and being vigilant about potential symptoms (i.e. runny stool, or trouble walking) as they appear but before they become extremely serious.
Experts say that the conditions that necessitate an emergency veterinarian visit include collapse, seizures, inability to walk, partial paralysis, and any difficulty breathing (non-stop panting, constant coughing, hyperventilation, or elevated heart rate). Gum color is often an indicator that something is wrong--especially blue gums or very pale gums. Excessive vomiting or a distended abdomen should be considered an emergency situation. Signs of any trauma or excessive bleeding should send your pet straight to the vet. Lastly, for cat owners, urinary obstruction is fatal if not treated, and generally occurs in male cats.
