Alta Veterinary Hospital
Our yorkie Olive was very sick so we took her in to the closest vet. It was determined she needed emergency pyometra surgery. This other vet printed a price quote for over $1800 and shoved it in front of me and told me to sign off so they could get going on saving her life. I had no idea what the fair rate for this procedure should be but I felt like their price was high. I declined the surgery and began making calls. Alta Vet quoted me a price that was 1/3 of what the other place tried to get. Alta isn't trying to get rich by overcharging distressed pet owners in an emergency, they just want to help sick animals feel better.They did a great job with the surgery and kept me updated throughout. They called me on New Years Day to check on Olive even though they were closed for the holiday. Thanks for saving Olive's life without bankrupting me Alta Vet!

I have had my dogs in to them a few times. One time my male was almost dead! They diagnosed him with diabetes and he had ketoacidosis. They saved his life! Great place to take your pets!

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
