PAWS - The Modern Spay Neuter Clinic
I called to see about getting my dog spayed I was worried that she had just gone into heat and she was an older dog. The price was good. They had a cancellation so I got her in the next day. When I dropped her off I also checked the boxs to get all her shots longs she was rescue I didn't know were she was on them. They told me she would be ready around 2. They called me at 10am that she will be ready at 12:30pm. I picked her up and they explained everything. The price was cheaper than I had added in my head. They even clipped her nails. I would recommend this place.

Just had our almost 5 year old Boston Terrier in to be neutered and get his shots. The front office was very friendly and the check in process was quick and simple. The doctor was friendly as well. I felt like they truly cared about my pet. The cost was very affordable. Clinic was tidy and clean. We were sent home with pain meds in prefilled syringes. That is working perfect for us. I will definitely go back and recommendations do them to anyone. Thanks PAWS!

Horrible staff!!! I called ahead was informed that they would indeed help a cleft pallet puppy we are trying to save. My foster drove 20 plus miles to be told no. Then maybe they vet will see her. Mind you this puppy has already seen our vet and was just leaving from the vet. They then refused to teach to tube feed charged a 65 dollar fee bullied the foster into paying the fee before she could leave ALL WHILE I WAS ON HOLD TO PAY THE FILL!! HORRIBLE VET!!! Only wanting money and not caring they are stealing from a 501c3 not for profit!!!! We work off of donations!!!

Place is totally unprofessional. The staff act "put out" by having to do their jobs. Profits before pets should be their motto. Plus they are way more expensive than other vet hospitals in the area.

Southside Animal Hospital
Southside Animal Hospital let my dog die in their parking lot.Early morning on 10/27/2016, my dog began to act strangely – staggering and panting. I loaded him up in the car and prepared to take him to the closest ER vet that I knew – on Thomas. While stopped at a stop light, I realized that he was in distress and would probably not make it to that vet.A quick Google search located the nearest vet, which was Southside Animal Hospital – they were set to open in less than 20 minutes, and they were 5 minutes away. I quickly made my way in that direction. I pulled into their parking lot and tried the door – it was unlocked and I could hear people in the backI called out to them to ask for help. One guy came out and informed me that they didn’t open until 8AM. At this point, that was only 12 minutes away, and my dog didn’t have that much time. I asked if they could see him early since this was an emergency and was told flatly – no. I asked a second time, saying my dog was dying, only to be shown the door.Frankly, I was in shock. As I stood outside trying to figure out what to do next, I heard the door lock behind me. God forbid, I try to bring my dying dog in for help.I sat in the parking lot for the next 10 minutes while my dog died in my arms. I was not ready to drive yet, so I sat there for another 10 to 15 minutes trying to compose myself enough to drive.By this time, it was past 8AM. I realize that I was not a current client, but you would think that common human decency would have compelled SOMEONE from that office to take the 20 steps outside to see if all was OK. No one did.I will never seek help from this vet again, and I urge others to do the same.

I would highly recommend Dr Fisher and the staff at PAWS. Everyone was very professional and kind. The waiting area was large enough to keep pets separated if needed. No frills in the exam room but the focus was entirely on my pet and me. Dr Fisher went over some other maintenance recommendations for my young Boston Terrier and took his time examining her. When I picked my pooch up she was not groggy just a little quiet. Her incision was small and beautiful and the sutures were under the skin so there were no stitches to take out later!! I was given 3 days worth of oral anti-inflammatories. The total cost was $85!!!! I was quoted $360 at BF! Check this clinic out....they are conveniently located at the 101 and Cave Creek Rd.

Took our 4 year old Eclectus parrot in for a wellness check and physical. The doctor and her assistants are very caring, friendly and knowledgeable about parrots. I came away knowing I had found a local vet that will provide years of great care for our treasured feathered friend!

I have always loved the care Dr Higgins provided for my dogs over the years. I moved recently and returned with our new dog. Sadly, daycare was a horrible experience for me and my dog. 50-60 dogs were in enclosures outside, with dogs of all sizes walking in dirt and their excrement. My dog was not acclimated to this heat. Shade awnings and misters are not enough. I saw only one person supervising and interacting with the dogs. My rating is for dog daycare only. I cannot recommend daycare. Staff are always nice and easy to talk with. This rating is not of them.

If you own an exotic bird do NOT use Dr McCready as your avian vet, she is a disgrace to her profession and should NOT be practicing. Took my greenwing macaw in for a follow up and to have blood work done and within 10 minutes of being taken to a back room my bird was dead. He was only 10 years old! She showed no compassion whatsoever and took no responsibility for killing my bird! As a professional she should have known that birds are very sensitive and can easily get overstressed which can kill them, and that is exactly what she did to my bird, but instead of taking responsibility for his death she threw back in my face he was sick, REALLY, and how in the world would she know that within 10 minutes? NO BLOOD drawn, NO RESULTS from any tests returned but yet she seems to think she was GOD and could tell that within 10 minutes. I had a necropsy done on my bird and there was NO signs of any illness whatsoever. DO NOT use this POS as your avian 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
