Animal Tales Veterinary Clinic
I take my four cats and one dog to Animal Tales and we have really loved them. Before we chose Animal Tales, I called several vets in town and even though I called Animal Tales twice they were very polite and detailed in costs each time. I also was very impressed they offered a 3-year rabies vaccination while most other clinics in town only offer a 1-year. $40 office visit makes it very affordable to take my group of animals in. Thanks Animal Tales!

Green Hills Animal Hospital
The front desk lady was very rude. I was upset because my puppy was sick. She was heartless .. until she saw I had plenty of money.. then her attitude changed.. It was early in the morning and we were up all night with our sick puppy.. I guess I did not look like I was good enough .. She was nice when I was paying my bill of $300.00... She should NOT be at the front desk.. The Dr. was super nice.

They are very respectful when having to put a pet to sleep. They are very gentle with our pets. We take our yorkie pups to animal tales.
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
