Not open about their polices. (Moved to 330 E. Battlefield) My last vet (Thrive in Austin, Tx) allowed me to not to a heartworm test for my dog since he was on heartworm prevention already and had a previous heartworm test. Therefore I declined the heartworm test when I went to Springfield Veterinary Center, explaining that my dog was already on heartworm prevention. I WAS NOT TOLD THAT DECLINING THE TEST MEANT THAT THEY WERE NOT ABLE TO PRESCRIBED ANY PREVENTION TO ME. They had time to mention this when I asked how to get medicine online for my dog and was told that the online seller just had to contact them. I understand that different vets have different policies but I would not have declined the test if I had known the result. When I found out that they did not allow the prescription from the online provider, I called to find out the issue and was told they did not have a heartworm test for my dog so would not provide it even when I pointed out my dog had a test from 2014 and be on prevention since. I'm still angry that I wasn't informed of this policy when I declined the test or when I talked about getting heartworm prevention. Will never go to them again, rather eat the cost of going to another vet to get the heartworm prevention. I increased the score due to being offered a free heartworm test after the Veternarian called me back, though I did not take him up on it.

Springfield Veterinary Clinic, gave me hope for my dog!! I had taken for years to another vet, he started having seizures, they kept telling me he is an old dog and sent me home.My daughter takes her animals to SVC and I went with her when she had to put her cat to sleep. It was the most loved moment by the staff, I was in awe!I decided to take my dog there, I brought my kids with me, I was positive I was going to be told the same as my other vet, he is old and that is just what happens!I went there with no hope and after Dr. Wiseman checked my dog, suggested a pain management plan!!! I couldn't believe it!! I was given all the pros and cons of the medicine, and started the plan, I can't believe the difference in my pet, he is back to himself, It has been almost a year and my dog is still doting GREAT! I take him every couple of months for blood work and how he is doing. I walked in with no hope of saving my best friend and walked out with a plan of a road to recovery!! My family all go the SVC now, the staff is the BEST, they know my pet when they see him, they will call after visits to check up on him and send him cards!! I have never seen a more dedicated staff!! I am a SVC for life!! Thank you!! Renee Lawson

Angel Animal Hospital
Dr Jane has been amazing with my little guy! He was a rescue, born at animal control, and as most puppies go - he has had an interesting 1st year. She is always calm and sweet with Carlos and he loves going to see her. She and her staff are amazingly thurogh and always super helpful! They have a pet portal you can access online which keeps track of his wellness visits, vaccinations and monthly Trifexus. They send out reminders via email and also give you a quick reminder call before appointments.Thankfully I have only had to bring Carlos in once (so far) for an emergency! The staff was wonderful in keeping me calm and also making sure he was well cared for. We were out in the yard and he went chasing after a squirrel - somehow he ended up snagging a toe and nearly ripped out his entire toenail. I, of course, was in a state of panic because there was SO MUCH BLOOD. I rinsed his foot off and applied pressure, to no avail - at that point I thought my puppy was going to lose a toe. They got him bandaged up (which he took full advantage of) and out of pain immediately!They are wonderful and I'm grateful for Dr Jane and her staff offering such good care for my baby boy!

Bradford Park Veterinary Hospital
Bradford Park Veterinary Hospital saved our precious baby's life. Amos, our 13-year-old Basset/Beagle, was diagnosed with a massive tumor in his stomach that abscessed and perforated into his gut, thus becoming septic. He went under emergency surgery in the skillful hands of Dr. Shelley. It was a long shot that he would pull through because of the severity of situation, but Dr. Shelley worked a miracle with our boy. All the technicians and the staff were extremely helpful, kind, and positive. Dr. Wiest worked with us throughout the whole process with the utmost professionalism, honesty, and care. A heartfelt shout out goes to Shawna for taking a personal interest in Amos and keeping us updated on his progress. Bradford Park Veterinary Hospital is undoubtedly the best in the area, unparalleled in their physicians, staff, and services. I am forever grateful to them for saving Amos' life.

Carlson Pet Hospital
my cat got atttacked by a pit bull. when we took her to the vet she had punchered intestines and herina in her back end. she had to have part of her intestines removed and put back together. and had several puncher wounds. she was in the clinic for several days. they kept in contact with us about her well being and how she was being cared for. they called me every day to update me and i talked to the surgeon several times. i finally got to take her home and they continued to call and check on her. making sure that i was handling giving her meds to her and check on her progress. it took several weeks...but she finally got back to eating drinking and roaming the house again. and now she is playing with her doggie best friend. and only thanks to the carlson vet clinic and all this staff.

Our family are long time clients of Bradford Park and Grant Avenue. Our dog's have received top quality care and the doctor's are always engaging and care about the comfort of the dogs.I am disappointed to learn Amy Blevins, long time staff member and manager, is no longer associated with either Hospital. Amy was the reason I stayed with BP/GA after a negative experience with a current front desk person. Amy reassured me I would not need to interact with the hater [my word] and she would make sure future visits were professional and smooth. She kept her promise.It's unfortunate BP/GA were sold to National Veterinary Associates, a corporate business. The first time the personal touch I appreciated about BP/GA and Amy disappears, I'll be looking for a new veterinary facility.

Deerfield Veterinary Hospital
Dre McMasters · 5 seconds agoOur baby Zelda, a one year old black lab, got extremely ill, so ill that we thought we were going to lose her. Even after surgery, she was not improving. Dr. Caldwell and his staff were amazing. They refused to give up on our baby. Caitlin, and the other staff members ( I wish I could remember all of their names), stayed by her side when we couldn't be, and kept trying to feed her, bathed her, just loved her. Finally, Zelda started eating again at home. And today, we are finally out of the woods. We have our happy healthy baby back, thanks to the compassion of these wonderful folks. We are forever grateful

Those of you that keep reptiles know how difficult it is to find a vet that will treat them. Dr. Enderson will treat reptiles, and is very knowledgeable about them. He has seen several of my snakes and does everything he can for them when something goes wrong. He removed a cancerous tumor from my yellow rat snake, prolonging her life for several more years, for instance. It's such a relief to have a vet here that knows reptiles, and even goes the extra mile if need be. Five stars is not enough.

Saaf House Spay Neuter Clinic
SAAFhouse Spay Neuter Clinic has helped tremendously with the area pet overpopulation! I volunteer with rescue groups, foster, TNR and have taken several dogs and cats in for their spays and neuters. The staff has always been very professional and compassionate. They treat our pets with kindness and concern for their well being. To date they have provided thousands of surgeries and prevented litters of tens of thousands of unwanted cats and dogs.

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
