I had two dogs with an intestinal virus 2 days apart. One we took to another facility on Sunday and paid $599; one we took to our regular vet at Chappell and paid $210 for X-rays and medication. Different treatment plans but the dog that was treated by Chappell recovered quicker. They are knowledgeable and treat our dogs as God's creations. It's a bit of a drive and sometimes a wait if it's a busy day, but worth it for the care. They aren't after your money, they are after your animals well being.

For 40+ years, we have been blessed by the welcoming and professional staff, compassionate and caring Dr. John. It' so sad when a person allows a bad day to ruin 30 years of relationship & memories. Good thing we don't quit or punish our babies when they mess-up. Not to mention, they have awesome prices... always have! I love Chappells, for their goodness to our babies, us and even if they have a bad day, no matter. I choose to Forgive & Forget... life is so much easier.

Love, LOVE, love Lesslie Animal Hospital! Dr. Setzer and staff are so amazing! They take the time to listen and offer many different options when it comes to taking care of your fur babies. The new location is a HUGE upgrade from where they were previously. I was able to tour the new location and it is remarkable! It is bigger and better than before. I am very thankful to have them as my primary animal hospital. Thank you Dr. Setzer and staff for all that you do!

My two dogs just had an exam this week and did not even flinch at the shots or exam. They treat your animals as God's creation and not just a part of their job. And they are much more reasonable than other vets!

They were very kind and helpful in my time of need.
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
