Arapaho Road Animal Clinic
The staff Arapaho Animal clinic are the best doctors and staff I could ever dream of having. I had 2 elderly 15 & 16 yr old Chihuahuas since they were puppies. I thought I had a good clinic in another part of the city and was loyal to them for 10 years. It was a horrible place to go yet I liked one of the vets. Their front desk staff knows they are rude and obnoxious. I could not go there again because of this. This is how I ended up at ARAC to have my babies taken care of. When my babies first met Dr. May and Dr. Sperry plus the owner my dogs were in a much better place and were treated with respect and kindness. I only got to use their service a couple of years but my dogs have crossed the Rainbow Bridge within 5 months of each other (One last week) and DR Sperry and the receptionist and technician were so kind and thoughtful. I just lost Bambi last week and I cry a lot and am by myself at night so it hurts. ARAC kindness and patience helps me even now because I think of how they treated us and gave us the best care of all.

Richardson Veterinary Clinic
They are so nice. They take care of your pet like it was there own. My family moved here from Pennsylvania in August 2012. We needed a good vet cause our buddy (may he rest in peace) Was very sick he had mass cancer so we made the dession to put him to sleep. They sent us a card for our lose and also made a donation to the College of Veterinary Medicine Biomedical Sciences At Texas A&M University. Thank You all so much for everything.
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
