Happy Tails Veterinary Clinic
So I have heard nothing but great reviews about this Clinic so in desperation I look my two very sick puppies there ready to put them to sleep bc they had been diagnosed with parvo. The vet promised me that she Could save them both after I told her that I didn't want them to suffer any longer. She promised they haven't lost a puppy to parvo in a very long time- her exact words. So I told her that expenses were an issue and she promised to work with me and have me a set amount to pay with 300 upfront for their care for 3 days. I agreed to let them be treated but made her promise if they got worse to do what was needed. She promised that would not be an issue. When I called about them, they told me the one puppy was much better but the other was the same. I ASKED IF HE WAS SUFFERING- the lady said they gave him some more meds and that he would be fine To go home on Monday. Saturday morning a different lady called his condition had gotten so bad that he needed to be put to sleep bc he couldn't move and hadn't opened his eyes for 2 days! And he had lain in uncontrollable vomit & diarrhea all night long & was a mess so she would have to clean him before I could pick is body up. my heart shattered I let my husband take over. He went to pick up my now dead puppy When he gets there, they demand we pay over $800 before we take them home. We we were shocked so they demand we have to pay at least 600 of the bill and get will bill me the rest later. My husband agrees - now outraged at me for putting our family in a financial bind when we discussed it. Monday I get 2 voicemails demanding that I pay the remaining amount by COB. These were not pleasant no Remorse for making my dog suffer and die anyway or the fact that paid an astronomical amount of money I didn't have to begin with! I'll called them back I can't pay anymore yet. But that doesn't stop the harassment, they have called me twice today! I'm going there and I'm going to pay the bill but I will never recommend them.

So I begin with that I had to make one of the hardest decisions. My furbaby was so sick and I prayed that it was just something fixable. However, no money could fix it. She had a huge tumor inside her abdominal cavity that was attached to her liver and she had internal bleeding. She was beginning to show kidney failure and dehydration. Dr. Postle was so down to Earth! This was my first visit and I had complete trust just after her seeing my dog in the exam room. She wasn't one of these veterinarians who wants to drain the bank account or put your pet through hell with unnecessary tests. She gave the basic rundown of a CBC, xrays, and stool sample. She agreed with me to see if we could my furbaby ' s issue. You could tell she hated to deliver the news and was genuine with her care. Her method of euthanasia is by far the best! My German Shepherd did not struggle it and Dr. Postle made sure that she never felt the stick of death in a needle. I thank her and her staff that helped me carry her in the doors and stood with me including Dr. Postle while my furbaby took her last breathe. I will be going back! They were awesome and I thank them.

Two thumbs up for Dr. Blair and his whole staff.He and his staff exhibited the most professionalism that I have ever observed in the many years of my pet's vet care.Moreover, it was very refreshing to deal with the friendly and cheerful personality of all the people at Vet Assoc.The medical attention that my dog received was excellent. She had to have knee surgery at another vet as Dr. Blair didn't do that type of surgery on large dogs. Therefore, the after care was not his responsibility. However, he and his staff took excellent care of her needs post op. I highly recommend Vet Assoc in either Bluefield or Princeton.
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
