Door-to-Door Dog Grooming
I have a 14 yr old Black Lab/Border Collie who has Arthritis in his back & can't get into a car. Door to Door Mobile Pet Grooming came to my house & clipped my dog Buddy's long nails even though he didn't want her to. He's never liked his paws touched but she did a wonderful job, now we can just do upkeep every couple weeks & he is already loving his new short nails! I can't remember the techs name but I'll get it next time as she definitely deserves the recognition.

All Creatures Animal Hospital
Dr Lindner was so gentle when it came time to say goodbye to my little dog Riley. We took care of paperwork and charges b4 hand so I cld depart when it was over. I got to be in the room with Riley as he took his last breath. The staff was so very kind and DrLindner made sure it was a peaceful passing. To have this last time with a beloved pet go with sympathy and professionalism is a gift to every pet owner. With great appreciation and sincerity, Margaret English

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
