I love them there. I've been through most of the clinics in this town. They have NEVER overcharged me, in fact they've been so upset about the genetic defeat that Breeder was refusing to honor in our contract and there is nothing they can do about it Dr. Koehm told the front staff to charge me an Office Visit ONLY as an established patient. In fact I have an appt. with them in 45 minutes; so I have to run b/c they are 20 miles from my house and WORTH THE DRIVE. The difference is all their Vets and most of the Techs are Specialists. I've had to train so many Vets in this town it is ridiculous b/c they didn't know about this or that or even a certain disease one of my Mastiffs had. No Vet in this town at that time had even heard about it. They all know about it now though. U.C. Davis, when they did the crystals biopsy. The Vet called and YELLED at me for allowing my dog to wake up from the surgery. #1 We were at the all night E.R. Clinic. The Vet on duty had never seen neon green bladder stones before nor had Dr. Wilson, who I've known for years when he saw them the next morning before the courier got their to p/u their specimens. These were not stones they were a crystal from a dual hereditary disease. They pulled 5 handfuls of crystals out of him. Being a Mastiff they actually removed his bladder from his body to flush it hoping to get all the bladder stones. U.C. Davis told me I was stupid and my dog would be dead or have to have surgery again in 6mos, He lived another 6.5yrs w/o any other occurrence. He's the oldest Mastiff I've ever bred, let alone owned. Why b/c I refused to follow U.C. DavDietitian'san's instructions on what to feed him. He needed his urine alkalized. They wanted him on SD for kidneys which is made to acidify the urine. I juiced for him every day for the rest of his life to bring his pH up to where it should be. He passed away from old age as a Mastiff's lifespan in only 6-8yrs, he was 12.5yo. He went HOME b/c he was bitten by a brown recluse spider bite when he was 6mo on his hock that was now making his back leg fail. He got to go HOME with 3 women loving and petting him while he got to lay on their cool floor. What more could a man ask for?So if you wish to go to a cheap Vet, go ahead but my Service Dog deserves better than that. Yes, I have been totally disabled for 7yrs but I don't look it. I'm one of these people you get mad at for using the Handicap Space. If you have a problem with their prices ask. I can remember when Vets didn't charge for office visits either. My new Service Rott can detect if I'm going to have a Seizure, my Heart is going to start acting up or I'm going into either a Passout or Blackout Syncope. She almost as many medical problems as I do. She has a Grade 3 Wry Bite, is Auto-Immune, Dysplastic in both hips and 1 elbow, has genetic heart problems and several of other problems. My normal Vet there is Dr. Connelly and I love her so. All the Staff there is great.Since YP just dumped over half of my review, I'm not going to go further into how great she is besides to say she is normally their Surgeon but will take patients when possible.

All Creatures Veterinary Hospital
I am not sure who wrote this, but they certainly can't be talking about me or my hospital All Creatures Veterinary Clinic. Anyone who knows me, knows I would NEVER speak to a client like this. I ONLY use my own AI kit and my technicians are very familiar with it. Not only would I would not use an AI kit I have not used before, but this person clearly has no idea how a collection takes place. The extender kits can be heat sensitive, but not the AI kits and again, I only use my own extender kit, if that was what she was talking about. Also, I require a female in heat for the collection process for first time studs, as most reproduction veterinarians do. The person who posted this is either grossly mistaken, or is flat out slanderous. I welcome a call from her to clarify 775-851-3151

I've been taking my baby, Taz, to Feline Medical Center for almost 13 years and would not trust anyone else to take care of my boy. He's a special needs kitty and the care and compassion of the Dr's and staff is top notch! The atmosphere/lobby is peaceful and serene. If you love your feline family and don't want to be surrounded by dogs or any other animals, this is the best veterinary clinic. Heck, even if you or your cat don't mind being around other critters, it's still the best! And my boy deserves the BEST! Thanks so much, Karen and Tazzy Boy

Dr. Lowell is amazing! My doxie Leonidas has a blown disc in his back and was paralyzed. Dr. Lowell has been treating Leonidas for nine weeks and not only is he able to walk now he can even run alittle. The suggested treatment was a very expensive surgery (Min. $3,00.00) that all the other vets wanted me to get, but we could not afford. This treatment is affordable and very effective. Dr. Lowell and his staff are wonderful, caring people. I will recommend Dr. Lowell to everyone.

I do not know who wrote the one bad review, but I can assure you that Dr. Adams is a perfect choice for a veterinarian, especially for breeding services. I own an English bulldog stud. I have always had positive experiences working with Dr. Adams. Her prices are reasonable, her expertise is evident, and she has gone above and beyond her expected time frame to accommodate many of my clients. I would personally recommend her services to anyone in need of a good veterinarian.

I had a great experience with this vet office. I took a rescue dog there who has behavioral problems and they were so helpful and encouraging. He was neutered there and caught up on his vaccines, plus they recommended a dog trainer for me. I checked around and their rates for the services I received were comparable to other vets in town, plus they gave me the estimate for the services ahead of time and it was accurate. I recommend them.

Silver Sage Veterinary Hospital
I have been going to Silver Sage Vet Hospital for years and have been very pleased with them. Actually most of my family and many of my friends go there as well. I have always gotten excellent care for my animals for the staff. When I had to put down our old Corgy the staff was very good. They even cried with us. I would like to suggest them to anyone who is looking for a vet in the Reno area.

Klaich Animal Hospital
I have been taking my pets to Klaich off and on since the sixtys .Really don`t know why I use other vets, maybe because they are closer to my home . So just the other day my little doxie hurt her leg and that is where I took her. As always before I was very happy with them. Dr. Likes is absolutely a great veterinarian . I don't think I will stray from these guys again .

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
