Allcare Animal Hospital
have seen Verona Chaffin for about 3 years now. She is a very caring vet, and I would highly recommend her. I totally trust her with my animal babies. She has cared for my cats and my little dogs. I've always been happy with her caring nature. She is upfront, no lies and will tell you her opinion that is just her personality. I am ok with that, I need to hear the truth at times. I spoil my babies, and I need to hear if I need to alter my care in any way. Different people's perceptions can be different, but hands down I believe in Dr. Chaffin.....she has many years experience and a big heart under her up front no lies personality. I'll go back in a heartbeat! Happy to call her my vet! Excellent care, very knowledgeable and years of experience. I also think that Dr Chaffin is a reasonable person and will review the below reviews by discussing with staff etc.

I have gone here for 15+ years and would not trust my animals anywhere else. Dr. Chaffin's #1 priority is ALWAYS that of her patients...the animals. Her advice is spot on, her care is beyond exceptional. I strongly recommend this office to everyone I know, and will continue to do so!

Everyone that works at Allcare loved my pet like it was theirs. Hit by car they rushed Callie right in and saved her. Thank you to all the staff.

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
