Approximately 1 year ago our little fur baby started having seizures and we also found out he has problems with his liver, that is when we first encountered Dr. William Cline. I had previously been to other veterinarians in the Saginaw area. And although I felt that they were adequate and that they provided appropriate care, I had never before encountered the type of compassion and the willingness to discuss in great length with us the concerns and the necessary treatment to help our little guy. We have received multiple phone calls from Dr. Cline with test results and options. He has seen us in his clinic after receiving panicked phone call with surprising shiftness. The clinic provides great care and yet the cost is always below what I estimate. I can not praise Dr. Cline and his entire clinic staff enough. Since finding him and his wonderful clinic, I will never feel comfortable taking my fur family members anywhere else.

Great small clinic, however they don't do reptiles or exotic animals. Neither do they board.
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
