These people are really rude. I called about my dog being really sick and the lady said "Well, what do you want me to do?". I mean really, you are a veterinary office. That is the last thing that you should ask. They acted like I was really bothering them by calling with questions. I found a long list of pets that they have killed due to overdosing. Also they have been known to leave animals in a car overnight in freezing temperatures. I don't think they should be in practice anymore. I will definitely be taking my pets somewhere else with my hard earned money.

I took my Pit bull to Dr. Fox 1st to get fixed. When I got her back she was very sick. I called Hick's and they had me bring her in the Friday before Easter. They ran tests and found out what was wrong with her. She had to stay there till Monday afternoon. They saved my dog. I'm very greatful to all of them. Dr. Hicks called me every day to give me an update she even called me on Easter night. My dog knows how great they are she gets excited when she gets to the vets office. I will not take my animals anywhere else as long as they are open

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
