Dr. Mike Pfanders is the most professional vet in this city and surrounding area that I know of. His staff is so sweet and gentle with your pets. Dr. Mike as I like to call him took care of my toy poodle since she was six weeks old. Through her sixteen years of life, he had saved her life more than 3 times. Dr. Mike is a gentle man when he is with the animals he is treating and examining and even plays a bit with them too I've seen. As the years went on with my poodle she developed certain problems as any pet will do in it,s life. Snuggles, my dog had got an infection and would die without surgery, he said she needed stays and tests that would cost me money I did not ve.he told me that he knew what the problem was and would do the surgery and talk later about the bill later.because of her age he told me that she may not pull through but she would die without it. He did the surgery and she came thru with flying colors. Well the years went by and she was 16 now and slowing down and having problems. It got really bad Monday sept 17th and he was putting fluids in her to keep her hydrated. He sent her home with me and told me she could pass during the nite.she did have a bad nite so I had to take her in and had to make the decision to have to make her pain go away.we had to put her to sleep that morning. It was so painful for me but Dr. Mike was calm and very passionate when he put his hand on my arm and said, you are doing the rite thing. I was able to hold her while he administered the medicine that would put her out of her pain. She passed away in my arms and I cryied,he gave me time to grieve,and when it was over he told me that he would make the arrangements for her to be creamated. I just want to say that in the 16 years that I have known Dr.Mike Pfanders he is the best veterinarian that I know and was voted vet of the year again I believe 2 or three years.and I just want to say he and his staff Jean,miss Reba and spring, I hope I didn't forget anyone are the best! I would recommend him to any one and everyone i know and do not know. Dr. Mike you are the greatest man I know,thank you for caring for my dog all of those years.Thank you so much. David Owens

Sunshine Animal Hospital
recently my daughter, whom is attending college in Springfield, had to leave her cat with her Dad, by the time we got back to pick the cat up he was in bad shape, when she arrived back here I was not sure if the cat would survive. I called around to all animal vets. finally took the cat to this place, the staff was awesome, friendly, concerned, got us in immediately, kept the cat , called us regularly for update, and as of today her cat is doing GREAT. I would recommend this place to anyone,prices are reasonable,Vets and staff are very dedicated, I would like to thank all at the Sunshine Hospital for the good work they did, they made our Christmas and New Year complete.Never thought I would say this but to see her cat climbing the Christmas Tree has been an awarding experience.Would recommend this clinic to anyone.Becky Yocom

Healing Paws Veterinary Clinic
Healing Paws Veterinary Clinic is by far the BEST vet I have been to in Springfield MO. The place looks great and is always clean. The staff is very friendly and polite, happily greeting clients and their pets. Lauren is great at what she does and always returns phone calls when there is a concern. Dr. Ross is AMAZING with my two cats. She has been the most caring, understanding, and honest vet I have been to. She takes her time and truly wants what is best for my kitties. She has gone over and beyond to help my one special needs kitty and without her time, skills, and kindness – he would not be with me today. She truly wants to help the patients she sees. I have since moved from the Springfield area and have yet to find a Vet like her. I highly and truly recommend Healing Paws Veterinary Clinic.

All Creatures Pet Hospital
I argued with "Dr." Blackburn for 20 minutes about whether or not my friends cat had an infected cat bite. No, I'm not a doctor, but I've owned cats all my life and cleaned up many a cat bite. Finally after 20 minutes of him telling me I was wrong, he said, "Oh yeah, you're right, that is a cat bite." Really? He gave her antibiotics and she died 2 days later. Over $150 to argue with this guy and still lose a cat. If you want to pay an arm and a leg for a visit with a big headed doctor who doesn't care about your opinion or your animals, come here. The only reason I left two stars is because the receptionists are really sweet, and never care when I bring in a stray to have them scan for a chip. But that's about all this place is good for.

This vet cares more about your four legged family then she does her facility . It is clean that's all that is important to me . I don't need a classy facility to go to that I would spend more money and get poor care for my pugs . I've never met a vet who honestly cares so much for your animals. She has stayed overnight with my pugs to make they are getting the best care . This vet is awesome and she is always busy . Shame on the rating for how you think her facility looks . Take your pet somewhere else where you can set in a fancy waiting room and get more expensive care . I however will always bring my dogs to someone who really cares more for my extended four legged family

The Emergency Veterinary Clinic Of SW Missouri
Good people, great service. I wonder what the nay sayers hate about this place. It's an emergency clinic, not a drive-thru. They take care of the most urgent cases, which makes sense, unless you're some hoosier that expects to have a vet waiting to greet you at the door. Their prices are very fair and I feel that we got good value for the money we spent there. We're fortunate to have this service available to us in town here.

I have not been to this clinic, but called for advice for a dog training client of mine. The individual I spoke to was very polite, professional, and helpful. I am only rating this clinic as a 4 rather than a 5 because all I know about it is my experience on the phone. I was impressed, and will recommend this clinic to anyone within driving range who has a veterinary emergency.

I found Dr. Smith and staff to be very professional, very well informed on the most current small animal problems and very helpful when consulted by phone. She is inundated with patients which can take time to work through. Her staff is very busy trying to answer the phone, relay messages, dispense pharmacy, and settle payments. I wish more Vets were as good as she is.

Town & Country Small Animal Hospital
This smaller version of an animal hospital leaves much to be desired. We are not a fan of this accumulating junk pile of belongings surrounding this entire establishment. If the veterinary care is reflected on how they keep up their property one can only imagine, frankly it looks like a pig pen. Get some pride and clean up your mess!

We love how she is primarily concerned with her patients. she is straightforward. her costs are so reasonable, and she does not try to sell unnecessary extras! you may have to wait your turn, but if you go in expecting her to be busy, you can prepare. We drive an hour and a half to use her, and will not ever change.
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
