My puppy is bad. Just kidding... I guess I am the bad one beacuse I left the chocolate where he thought it was for him. I knew that chocolate was bad for pets but I did not know how bad. I immediately called my vet Dr. Hughes at Sun Valley Regional Animal Hospital. I was told that Rocky should be brought in right away. When we got there they got to work on him right away and made him vomit up most of the chocolate then kept him there for the remainder for the day on fluids to flush out his system. I am so thankful for the promptness and compassion I was given there and I know I will never take Rocky to any other vet. Thank you to Dr. Hughes and all the staff at Sun Valley Regional Animal Hospital!!

I brought my kitten here a few months ago and it was really scary for me she had gotten out of the house and got into a fight with the dog next door and she was hurt very badly. So I called Sun Valley Animal Hospital and they told me to come in right away and I did. They took her in right away and they end up keeping her over night and the next day she was so excited to see me all patched up and ready to come home.

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
