That they are amazing! They saved my dogs life when she was literally on her death bed and even got me in without an appointment first thing in the morning (they were willing to have me come in when I called them at 12 in the morning but I didn't have a vehicle as my husband works night-shift). They did immediate testing on my dog and found out she had whip-worm which had made her anemic. They treated her right away and said that they would have to keep her for 2 night just to be sure she was in the clear. I was worried about leaving her there as she has some aggressive tendencies when she is away from me but I had to do what was best for her. When I went to pick her up 2 days later she was happy and healthy and about drug the poor vet tech across the floor to get to me (not out of fear of the people who work there but because she missed me) and the vet tech even said that she was one of the best behaved dogs they have ever had there (which is weird because every other vet that I have taken her to before had problems with her anytime they had to separate us) but she was fine at LHAH. And my bill was only $130 and that was even with extra meds to go home with her and the overnight stay. The vets and vet techs here are amazing and do truly care about the well being of the pets in their care. My aunt has been using the same vet for over 20 years to come to her house and do all the shots for her horses and cattle and pets and says she will never change no matter what.

I HAVE been telling my best friends for 20 years that LHAH has a wonderful vet, for pets, for livestock and for my horses. They have treated my dogs for all the usual problems, including fixing other vet's mistakes, done neutering, and routine care, they have been to my farm dozens of times to treat my horses, and literally saved the lives of a couple. I don't know what the above person's problem is, I am familiar with the other vet she mentions, and I drive the 60 miles to go to Somerset rather than the 18 miles to Camelot. I KNOW that everything she has stated must be a lie, because I've been dealing with these people for years and years and NEVER saw any conditions that she describes. This is very unfortunate; that someone can use this venue to attack a business so unfairly.
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
