Dallas Veterinary Surgical Center
My dog Augie had two surgeries at this facility and and I cannot say enough good things about everyone from the front desk to the assistants to the doctors. Specifcally, Augie had a high chance of rupture in his eye and would lose it completely and the on staff opthalmologist peformed a skin graft that saved his eye and also preserved his vision in that eye. Dr. John Warren treated Augie as if he was his own and was the height of professionalism and competence. Augie's eye looked pretty bad when he first came out of surgery but Dr. Warren kept assuring me that it would heal in a few weeks and you would barely be able to see the skin graft and it's true! You can hardly tell which eye had the problem. He is wonderful and to my Allen friends, if you ever need any kind of surgery on your animal I cannot recommend this place enough. Btw, the surgeons both gave me a range of price estimates and both bills came in at the lower end of the range. Very professional organization. Sad to say, I think Augie got better treatment than I have from my doctors :(. Outstanding clinic!

Paws & Claws Animal Hospital/Holistic Pet Center & Integrative Cancer Hospital
I have been going to Paws & Claws for 11 years now. I moved to Lewisville from Plano 6 years ago, and still drive to P&C because of the care I've gotten for my dogs and cats there. I totally believe in the holistic approach, and I believe my critters have lived longer, healthier lives. Yes, it can be expensive, but I feel I have spent less in the long run because my pets are healthier. My experiences in the last 11 years start with Dr. Shawn properly diagnosing my dog Cody after my previous vet got it wrong, to giving me his personal cell phone number when I needed to reach him concerning my cat Bailey.

Coit North Veterinary Hospital
Dr. Lovell and his staff are all so friendly, both to me and my dog. I heard of him from a flyer at my apartment and am certainly glad that he is my dog's vet. They truly do care about the animals and always ask about them whenever I call. They offer grooming and boarding services as well. They did a great job grooming my dog and took care of her for the day while I was at work. I have not boarded her overnight here yet, but may look to do so in the future. They also offer a vaccines for life program for dogs and cats.
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
