Was not going to write a review until I saw the one star review written by "Mustlovecats." That review was so contrary to my personal experiences there, as to make me believe it was pure spite and in-objective vitriol as opposed to a legitimate complaint.Doctors and ESPECIALLY the staff are first class. I have been going there for years and NEVER witnessed the front desk staff be anything but attentive and professional. As for ALL of the Vets there, they may not get it perfect every time but it is not because of lack of effort. There efforts are every bit as thorough and professional as my own PPO doctor and I am very picky!A great big "thank you" and job well done to ACWC for taking care of my dog for her 12 years and for my other dog before her!

All I can say is I wish Dr. Rex was MY personal Dr! I have been going to Dr.Rex for over 3 years now and he is the best vet I have ever been to! My lab mix dog was attacked by another dog that broke her leg and Dr. Rex and his staff were beyond amazing in handling my emergency. She received surgery and after 2 weeks was running and playing... You can really tell an animal lover and Dr.Rex is the true epitome of one!!

I'm sad reading the bad reviews. Dr Rex has gone out of his way when it came to my babies. I recently picked a dog from SB Shelter who had Kennel Cough and then it turned into Pneumonia. Dr Rex treated her and she's 100% happy and healthy now. She's going back in today for her shots etc. In my opinion he loves what he does and charges sooooooo much less than others have charged me.

I find Dr Rex to be a caring and excellent Vet. I have gone to him for years. I will continue to go to him, even though there are several vets much closer to my home.
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
