I called the office because my 5 month old puppy wasn't acting "normal". I told them she was vomiting every time she eats and has diarrhea. They asked if she was teething, which she is. I was told by Dr. Brown that she had "textbook teething symptoms". He wanted to put her on some medicine for an upset stomach and probiotics without even bringing her in for a quick exam. I went and picked up the $30 probiotics and gave it to her. The next day the vomiting and diarrhea were worse. I called again and was not called back for 4.5 hours. I was told they were closed for the day but if I called in the morning they may be able to squeeze her in if I was still concerned by her condition. By the time I got the call back we were already on our way to University Veterinary Specialists. Within 30 min of being at UVS they performed an x-ray and found an intestinal blockage. They said if it would have been left untreated a few more days that she could have died. They asked if I notified her Vet because she had all the symptoms of a blockage, and I told them I had called a few times and was told it was teething and not to worry. They were completely baffled by this response and could not understand why they wouldn't at least check her out and just assume it was teething. UVS monitored her in their ICU overnight and she had emergency surgery the next morning and is doing great. UVS forwards all records and procedures to your primary vet. 12 days later, I still have not had a follow up or even just a call to see how she is doing. I have 2 dogs and neither one of them will be seen by Greentree Animal Clinic ever again. The complete disregard for owner's concerns, the failure of any sort of follow up knowing that she was having issues and was being taken to an emergency clinic, and the complete lack of communication from the front desk to the doctors is completely unacceptable.

Taking my dog to this vet, the vet was doing an examine and for about 3 minutes continued to twist and rotate my dogs right rear leg. After the visit I noticed that he was limping and favoring that leg. I called the vets office about it and they threw some medical term at me saying he is a puppy and it will come and go. That was on 09-22-2015. They also told me it was nothing to worry about. Since that appointment he still favors the right rear leg and it is curved in under his body. I feel the vet manipulated his leg way too long, especially since he was only about 5 and 1/2 months old at the time. I feel the vet caused this problem since he had no signs of it prior to this visit. I was also told by your experienced vet that my miniature poodle would be 25 pounds when grown. I would say your vets need to learn a little more about dogs before they do anything with them.

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.

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.

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.

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
