I love this place. Yes, they are overwhelmed with folks who need their care and do not answer the phone or return messages. They are much cheaper in price and allow poor folks to get shots or treatments their pets need. They are not high end veterinary care and only offer basic services. They are very friendly when I am there and do a great job. If you want more personal care, go to a private vet. If you want great care at an affordable price, bring your pet here.

Dr. Early is easily the best vet around. He's straightforward, doesn't waste time and doesn't cost an arm and a leg. You can tell he is in the business for the benefit of the animal, not profit. I wouldn't trust my animals with anyone else. Shelly is a sweetheart, and I adore her. She is so sympathetic, and that is a trait hard to find nowadays. Hands down best veterinary office in the Blue Ridge and surrounding areas

I have been bringing my pets to Dr. Early since I moved to the area in 2003. He is very knowledgeable. He is straight forward and does not waste time or $$. Shelly has been his assistant as long as I can remember and she does a fantastic job. My daughters cat recently passed away from cancer and they sent her a very nice sympathy card. Not many veterinary offices would have bothered to do that.

You won't spend a small fortune taking your animal here, and the good doctor won't run a bunch of silly/expensive tests on an otherwise healthy animal just because it's trendy or profitable to do so. Never had to sit in the waiting room long because they don't overbook. Really knows his stuff, can ask this vet anything. Highly recommend.

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
