I've been taking my dogs to Shakopee Veterinary Clinic for at least five years. I'm always seen in a reasonable amount of time, pretty much no waiting. The staff and doctors make the place because they are friendly, kind, and know their animal knowledge.

I have been using Shakopee Veterinary Clinic for my animals for almost 10 years. I really like going there because the doctors are able to explain everything to me about my pets conditions and treatments. They are very thorough there.

We take our puppy Olive to Shakopee Vet Clinic. She's been going here for at least five years and we are very satisfied with the quality of service she receives. We have no problems with this clinic.

I like how Dr. Spanish is able to answer my questions and if she doesn't know an answer she lets me know and gets the appropriate information if needed. Overall we have had a great experience here.

For the most part I work with Dr. Spanish. She always gives my dogs the best care. I know that she is thorough and she reassures me by explaining every little thing, which I highly appreciate!

I am very thankful that the staff at this office genuinely care about the animals they treat. They are always kind and welcoming to both the pets and people that walk in their door.
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
