Audubon Veterinary Clinic
Love Audubon vet. They take great care of all of my dogs. I had a Korean Jindo that had a swollen disc after previously having surgery and I made an appointment to put him down. Instead of finalizing that appointment, they convinced me to bring him in and get him checked out. Dr. Wachtel prescribed prednisone and it was helping but ultimately after 3-4 months we put him down and Dr. Moore did the procedure. They were very caring and allowed me to stay in the room for as long as I needed after putting him down even though they had people waiting in the lobby. Even the receptionists remember me and my dogs. Everyone there is very respectful and caring. We now have 3 dogs (again) and continue to bring them in for all of their shots and checkups. I highly recommend Audubon Veterinary Clinic

Garland Animal Clinic
We love Garland Animal Clinic, it is a very busy office for such a small building. I wish they could expand so that dogs don't have to be sent to the back as with other vet offices. We've been going to Garland for years and love them! My furkids sure put them to the test sometimes and always come out perfect! Dr Boharski is awesome! :) One of my labs needed knee surgery at just 3 years old and he did the less invasive surgery and she was quickly on her way to healing. I was so grateful for how easy her recovery way. I recommend Garland Animal all the time!

Cat's Meow Feline Vet Clinic
Our favorite vet that used to be with 5 mile pet clinic opened her specialized "kitty clinic" a few years back (well, its probably 8 years of so now!). She is a great / compassionite vet and gives quality care to your feline friend. We have been in about 3 or 4 times over the years (the only issue being proximity - the clinic is quite a distance from us!). I highly recommended this clinic (remember, kitties only!). So glad they have their own "club" with the good doctor! 5 paws up ! ;)

CONGRATULATIONS! Dr. Streeter & staff. I just read that you won "Best Veterinarian" in last years Readers' Choice Award from Spokane Coeur d'Alene Living Magazine.I couldn't agree more having been going to your clinic since I was a little girl when your Dad was practicing. Keep up the good work. My critters wouldn't be happier anywhere else.

Do not take your English bulldog ! Owner treats your "bullie" as a breed of dog with tragic defects & disregards the unique needs of your individual pet. Caution! Not advised for English Bulldog!

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
