Greentree Animal Clinic
I cannot praise this place enough. I have worked as a vet tech in a previous job and have had experiences at numerous facilities here in Pittsburgh and Greentree Animal Clinic blows them all out of the water. Key things that you should note about this place:* They do not over charge* They only recommend services/things that they genuinely believe will help your pet, not their bottom line and they do not pressure you in any way* They are respectful and genuine to you and your pet which is hard to come by nowadays* Everyone there is patient and understanding. No condescension or poor attitudes, just positive energy all around. * They have an online pet portal so you can track your pet's vaccinations/appointments and care.* Dr Brown goes above and beyond any vet I've ever met. He has shown so much care, professionalism, kindness and knowledge that I will gladly refer anyone with a pet to him because I know they will be in good hands and his fellow vets (Dr Reuther, Dr Kelly, and Dr Mann) are just as phenomenal. Thankyou Greentree Animal Clinic for setting the bar where it should be for all Veterinary Care Facilities.

Always Compassionate Veterinary Care
I struggled with my Lab's intestinal issues for over a year - he was okay for weeks and then suffer diarrhea for days for no reason as his diet/environmental exposure had not changed. My old ver and I tried, I thought, everything, with disappointing results.A friend recommended ACVC and, within 2 visits, all Buddy's issues were resolved. Dr. Terlesky thoroughly examined him, suggesting a supplement along with adding natural, healthy fiber (pumpkin). She then immediately came up with a plan of action which has work perfectly. She even called me after my first visit as she was thinking about Buddy and had a thought she wanted to share with me. She was informative while remaining kind, compassionate, and patient.The staff has always been engaging, very friendly, and helpful and, I am grateful to all.

North Boros Veterinary Hospital
This vet practice is great. Just what I was looking for my dog. Great feature: Mon - Fri walk-in appointments, including an exam by the vet!! Friendly staff, competitive pricing, convenient location. Call backs for blood testing were right on time. My dog got nervous and made a little mess in lobby and the staff was understanding, handled it promptly. My bill was explained to me and no one rushed me through the process. They also managed my kitty when I had to euthanize her. The staff and doctor were compassionate and dignified about the event, no pressure, respected my wishes and were gentle with her. I really appreciate this vet hospital for their competency and compassion.

North Boros Veterinary Hospital
I had taken my Great Dane here before she passed of old age & now I take my 3 cats. I have received nothing but the best care for my pets & cannot understand the negative reviews posted on here. Staff has always been friendly & caring with my animals. Surgery was performed on my one cats tail when it was accidentally shut in a door. They were able to save his tail and checked up on him every day following the surgery. He has full use of his tail thanks to North Boros!

Greentree Animal Clinic
I would highly recommend going to Greentree Animal Clinic. Both of my cats went there, and the staff was very caring from the front desk to the vets. Since both my animals have passed on, and they sent me on both occasions a lovely sympathy card. My one cat was put down at a totally different vets office cause he needed emergency care. Only downfall of the office is that they are not an emergency clinic. But I know for sure when I'm ready for another I will surely be calling.
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
