Dr Lu has been seeing my dogs for the last 5 years or so. I trust his opinion as he's pin-pointed some issues with my previous dog (Neurological disorders) and this dog (epilepsy). He made course of treatment very clear, and is not a doctor that will run a bunch of tests just to charge you. He will tell you what is useful and will not have you pay for unnecessary tests and such. He is honest and will respect your decisions, not make you feel bad for trying your own herbal treatments or whatever. (dog with allergies and UTIs). I will continue to bring my pets to him.

Thanks for all of the excellent care and service you all have provided to Buster through the years. It pains to know that he and I will not be walking through your doors again but I know that it was his time. You all have been so kind and professional; I really appreciated all the dedication and compassion you have shown to my family. Buster will be sorely missed!

Everything went good in our visit with Akal animal hospital. My dog wasn’t feeling all that great so I thought it might have been something bad I took him in and he was fine nothing bad was wrong which I was happy for.

We love, our dog agrees, that we would like to see Dr. Chahal each time we come in, but understand he is not always available. Besides that, we have always been very pleased with the service at AKH.

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
