On 7/31/14, after just moving to FL my Shi Tzu got hit by a van. We didn't have a car,so a wonderful woman drove us to her vet (Murphy's). I ran in crying with my little dog in my arms and they ran us right back to a room. The dr checked him then did x rays. Because of his age they couldn't do surgery. They kept him there, let me come visit him for the 5 days and then I took him home. The cost was very reasonable and the care was exceptional. My dog would not be alive today if not for dr Wayne and her wonderful staff.

Our bischon had skin allergies. We called on a Saturday and they were able to get him in the same day. They gave him a vaccine that was very reasonable and he got immediate relief. I was very impressed at how caring they were. Mike said he works with shelter animals. Will definitely go back there.

Dr. Frank is a wonderful caring vet. He has taken time to answer questions that arose after our appt over the phone in detail. He diagnosed in 1 visit what another vet never diagnosed despite extensive & expensive testing. We highly recommend him.

I have been taking my kittens to Dr. Mole since I adopted them, April and August, 2015. Harry and Houdini are wonderful patients and I'm sure that's due to people who care for them. I'll be purchasing the VIP membership for both of them soon!

Dr. Frank has been an excellent vet for our dogs. One passed away at age 16 and our new one is now his patient. Staff and vet are all great!

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
