Washington Veterinary Clinic
To Dr King and staff at Washington family veterinary clinic,My wife and I are full time RVers with 2 small Yorkies. On New Year's Day my Cassie got extremely sick, after treating her at a emergency hospital in st george we transferred her to Washington family clinic in st George, my dog was near death but dr king performed a miracle in saving my Cassie's life. I wish I knew about him from the onset. The care of my dog as well as me and my wife from all the staff was extremely professional and caring. I highly recommend this clinic to all especially in an emergency situation/after hours. They will accommodate you. We thank them all for what they gave back to us. It would have been terrible to loose our best friend. Thank you again!Marv and Debbie Brumett

Red Hills Animal Hospital
My husband and I went through a real hard time with our 7 year old pit. She ended up needing 2 separate surgeries. Dr. Hannig and the amazing staff at Red Hills are loving, compassionate, and they treat your pets as if they were theirs. They helped us in so many ways I am so thankful that we found this place. I would recommend them to anyone I know with pets. I was just blown away on how they took care of our baby girl and went well beyond to help us. Thank you Dr. Hannig and the wonderful staff at Red Hills Animal Hospital!

Red Hills Animal Hospital
Dr. Hannig has always been so kind. He did surgery on my daughter's dog last year. Excellent job! When my senior kitty was at the end of her life several years ago, Dr. Hannig was very tender and kind. Years ago we had minor surgery on my other kitty. This was before Dr. Hannig. Again, everyone was great. :)
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
