Angel Of Mercy Animal Critical Care
With all of these bad reviews, I felt compelled to write this one. I am SO GLAD that Angel of Mercy was there for my family and me last week when our 9 month old puppy started having seizures out of the blue. They were polite and they took great care of my furbaby. Yes, they are a bit pricey but ... that's the nature of the beast (no pun intended) when it comes to an emergency. It's expensive for humans to go to the emergency room so, what do you expect? But the price wasn't so outrageous that I would post a bad review. Not to mention, they gave my a 5% military discount! At least with Angel of Mercy, I had a roundabout idea as to what my bill was going to be. I cannot say the same about Banfield- which is where I was taking my furbaby after I left AoM. Dr. Mikula was up front with everything while I felt like Banfield was grasping at straws. Which is leading me to take my dog back to a private veterinarian.Anyhoo, THANK YOU ANGEL OF MERCY!! You took great care of my Penny and, for that, you are alright in my book. I hope I never see you again but, if I do need emergency care, you have my business. :-)

Angel Of Mercy Animal Critical Care
Highly recommend Angel of Mercy Animal Critical Care!! My kitten and I were treated like VIPs and I was so stressed out that I REALLY appreciated this a couple weeks ago. Dr Babbitt took time with me and my very sick animal and explained everything so well. The technician really cared about my it was his own baby! I felt very at ease leaving my tiny one in their hands! Everytime I called to check on her, I was not made to feel like a bother but given time and explanation of what was going on. When I requested to speak to a doc, Dr Ridder called me back in a reasonable amount of time. When it was time for me to pick up my kitten, the staff was very accommodating with my crazy schedule! Critical care is expensive (i keep a savings for emergency health care) but this clinic is reasonably priced for what you get in return. Thank you Dr Ridder, Dr Babbitt and all who assisted there at Angel of Mercy for saving this precious kitten that was so close to death. She is thriving now!

Tips & Advices
Bring medical records and medications that your pet is taking. Also, you should bring your ID and a form of payment.
Yes, there are veterinary clinics that only deal with emergency cases. They generally take walk-ins and referrals from family vets.
Yes, emergency vets treat dental emergencies and dental trauma. Freshly fractured teeth are the main category of dental injury that vets consider an emergency.
To prevent health emergencies, experts recommend supervising one’s pets, and trying to make sure they don’t get into emergency situations. A majority of emergency vet visits happen because animals were struck by cars, bit by other animals, or ingested toxins. Otherwise, the best way to prevent emergencies is by having a go-to vet you can call with any questions, and being vigilant about potential symptoms (i.e. runny stool, or trouble walking) as they appear but before they become extremely serious.
Experts say that the conditions that necessitate an emergency veterinarian visit include collapse, seizures, inability to walk, partial paralysis, and any difficulty breathing (non-stop panting, constant coughing, hyperventilation, or elevated heart rate). Gum color is often an indicator that something is wrong--especially blue gums or very pale gums. Excessive vomiting or a distended abdomen should be considered an emergency situation. Signs of any trauma or excessive bleeding should send your pet straight to the vet. Lastly, for cat owners, urinary obstruction is fatal if not treated, and generally occurs in male cats.
