As a retired K-9 Officer I had to make sure that my partner, Officer Rex, was well taken care of and I needed that special Vet that I could trust with his well being. Dr. Romero was not only kind , sympathetic and knew about the breed of a Belgian Malinois, but he didn't take risks with Rex's health. Dr. Romero' skill and professional standard to test systematic through medical problems instead of piling on the usual outstanding procedures that were costly and not needed. He was well versed in the medical field and explained each step as he proceeded to diagnose Rex's problems. When it was time to relieve Rex of his pain and misery, Dr Romero was gentle and kind to Rex. He passed at 14 years of hard labor fron his police career. I also have a Rescued Greyhound which he takes care of with the same passion as he did with Rex.I highly recommend Dr. Romero to anyone because he has a good heart and passion to help the animals he treats.

I took my girl to Dr.Romero and he gave me the best 9yrs of my life with her.When she was diagnosed with multiple myeloma,last year, he spent his time on the computer in his off hours finding affordable pharmacy for me to use for her chemo drugs.He was always available for me with my concerns.Everyone was very supportive and compassionate.When my Sadie lost her fight..Dr.Romero and Lisa were there for me when I had to make the worst decision of my life.I thank them very much for there compassion and love they showed my girl.The whole staff treated us like family..and I will always be grateful and hope I can find another vet as caring here in Knoxville.You can't find a better place to take your best friends.

I have been going to Bee Ridge Vets for years and I cringe when I get Dr. Sego. Dr. Sego is cold , calis and only in it for your money. In november my dog needed meds for his thyroid condition Dr. Sego wanted to sell me the meds and I said I'll get them on line just like I have done in the past at half the price. Dr.Sego said I will not approve the request that I need to get them there. Also she will talk you into test and other things and charge you for everything she can think of. Her partener Dr.Tudin is great and a real caring vet. Make sure you get him, otherwise sorry for what you got coming from Dr. Sego

We have never had to experience a 24 hour vet emergency hospital before but to know the professional care is available in our community is very reassuring. Dr. Collins, Lee, and Shawna went into overdrive to care for our rambunctious 11 year old Muse who fell at home and had respiratory distress. Our biggest concern was not knowing what was going on but Shawna would convey our concerns and Lee or Dr. Collins would let us either see him or tell us what was going on. I hope no one has to use vet emergency services but if you do, they are there for you 24/7. Thank you.

This is an excellent veterinarian clinic. The staff is patient and compassionate, even with young animals who are easily excited. And the veterinarian who treated my dog, Dr. William S. Koch, was very professional. But he was also kind enough to take the time to tell me how to keep my dog healthy. Best of all, their fees are very reasonable. Not like most of the vet clinics in this town, which are outrageously expensive.

Dr Koch is an amazing vet! My dog had parvo before I got him, which seems to have left him with chronic GI issues that dietary changes could not improve. Dr Koch was able to provide me with a holistic method of treatment that keeps me from having to give my dog expensive and harsh medication. I would recommend him to anyone.

I love Dr Romero and his staff. Have been taking my animals to him for a few years and the quality of care, compassion, and demeanor is unsurpassed. I can't say enough to express my gratitude for taking such good care of our furry family members.

I've taken my rescue pup here for 2 years and had nothing but positive experiences. I flew with my dog and they made sure to prep me for travel with my big guy. Great clinic. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

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
