I love the veterinarians at SS Small Animal Hospital. I've taken 3 of my pets there over the past 13+ years. My husband's cat passed away 2 years after my husband died. I've never witnessed such compassion from any other vet in my life. The staff is friendly and helpful. When my dog has gone to the Emergency Center in Tulsa my vet in Sand Springs has always followed up with me and picked up the care when my fur baby was released. I wouldn't consider going anywhere else.

Brought my 9 month old puppy there April 2017. He hadn't eaten in 2 days was vomiting, weak, just plain ill. They told us it was just a intestinal bacterial infection. Gave him a shot for nausea and antibiotics.Got him home that night, hr got worse, thought he was going to die.Next morning I got him into another vet, they said he had parvo. He survived with use of IV and antibiotics. I am so upset he was misdisgnosed, my fur baby almost died.

McKinney Animal Hospital
Fantastic service. We have taken our cat and dog to Mckinney. Our cat stayed w/ them 2 days. They were very open and honest about the costs and gave us options. I was calling 2-3 times a day and their staff was extremely patient and overall impeccable. When I took in my dog over a rash, again, were very honest on what it could be and the potential costs. They told me this so I could prepare myself financially and emotionally. Turned out all is well and they even comped me a certain part of the exam. They are reasonably priced and I can't say enough about how professional and compassionate the staff was. Both the techs and vet. I will not take my animals anywhere else.

Dishonest, crooks. I will never take a pet to McKinney again, I I hope you never will either. I plan on going to the Better Business Bureau after I write this: Very very sick blind cat, part of the family. It took all my wife had to take her there to be put to sleep. She was mis-informed that "tests" would reveal the problem. $295.00 later they put the cat to sleep. We live paycheck to paycheck and this hit is hurting us bad. I was going to buy new shoes out of my paycheck, now I have to cover McKinney's greed. I wish ther was a negative star I could check.

Finding good vet is just as important as establishing your own network of human healthcare providers. After moving to SS two years ago, I researched local services and facilities. I selected this group because 1) the vets are all grads of the outstanding program at OSU, 2) they have full services and new facility, and 3) they have the largest and coolest office cat; I have ever seen that greets you at the front desk. I have both a cat and a big dog that is under their group's care. The docs, techs, and office staff are caring, knowledgable and very helpful. Whether a routine vaccination or an urgent problem, you get excellent service and great comfort in knowing your furry kid is in capable hands. Sand Springs Small Animal Hosital is highly recommended by our family.

McKinney Animal Hospital
I am overwhelmed and grateful for all that Dr. Shipman and the McKinney Animal Hospital staff has done for my pets, more recently for my sweet ten-year-old dog Jack. He suddenly became very ill over the weekend. ER doctors were not able to pinpoint why he was so sick. After he returned home he seemed to only get worse. I called Dr. Shipman first thing on Monday. She discovered that Jack had developed pancreatitis and kept him at the hospital to give him fluids and antibiotics. On the third day, he finally ate food on his own. I was able to visit with him and his appearance stunned me. He was happy to see me, not depressed and sick looking. He was ‘smiling’ again. Dr. Shipman has always showed compassion and understanding for my pets and also for me. All of the veterinarians, staff and technicians at McKinney have always shown great care for my pets. I have always been able to call and speak to Dr. Shipman when I have a problem or they are sick. And just a few months ago, Dr. Shipman and all of the vets and staff helped us through a very difficult time with our dog Sugar who developed an advanced cancer. It meant so much to my husband and I to have their care and support. I'm so thankful McKinney is there for us and they truly do care. Dr. Shipman saved Jack's life and I can't thank her enough, or her staff and the other vets.
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
