While traveling back home cross country, Fenix had a crisis. He started panting and collapsing in the car while we were crossing the desert. I called Dr Stan from the middle of nowhere and made an appointment for as soon as we could get to town. Dr Stan is a calm aware professional and calmed Fenix during his diagnosis. He needed immediate surgery for an abdominal mass and Dr. Stan proceeded to troubleshoot a complicated health profile. With Dr Stan's expertise Fenix recovered, and was able to return to his job as my sister's service dog.

I took my 16 year old Jack Russell to Dr. Hinko for a dental. He had extremely horrible teeth which were affecting his quality of life. Dr. Hinko performed the procedure on this old guy with no complications whatsoever from the anesthesia. He now has shiny clean teeth and I can tell he feels much better. I am very pleased and would recommend him highly.

I lived all over the country and this is one of the best vet clinics I've been to. They really seem to care and know when we came. We have had two sick dogs and had many a visits, phone calls, and questions they never seemed to mind.

I took my two chihuahuas to get spayed and they were well taken care of. All the staff were very kind and answered all my questions. I felt really comfortable leaving them in their care.

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
