This whole office is amazing. The front desk is knowledgable. But mainly Dr Kelly cared for my cat as if he were her own. He needed emergency surgery and instead of sending me to the 24 hour animal hospital she rearranged her whole schedule to stay extra late on their already late night to operate on my boy. She is a life saver and so kind hearted. 5 stars all day!!

You will get dedicated professional service. You will be treated as if you are the only one there and your pet will actually like going to the vet. I have used Kindness animal hospital for nearly 12+ years. My dogs and cats love them. I greatly appreciate great service. DENISE AVERILL

This hospital has such a warm and friendly environment! The staff were so kind and compassionate when we had to put our little dog to rest a few months ago. I would definitely recommend them! :)

They saved our baby's life when Dr.Amanda diagnosed him with Addison's. She is the best and the staff fits their name perfectly. We wouldn't take our pets anywhere else.

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
