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

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.

Jax my blue healer who has had issues with seizures had his first boarding experience. We were both a little nervous but Kristen put us at ease and explained what he would be doing and he had a great time! Highly recommend Deerfield. A+

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.

I went in due to a friend recommending a vet she uses frequently. I went with my two dogs. One is 6 lbs and one is 5 lbs. I went to just get them their yearly shots. The examine plus the shots was over $200 for a 10 minute 5 shot appointment. I was rushed throughout the appointment. The vet was disinterested in any questions and seemed to just want the appointment over. I'm am EXTREMELY disappointed in the service as well as shocked that their prices were excessively high. Not worth the money. I will not be going back. Very disappointed all around.

Exceptional! Dr. Huntington is amazing, down to earth, supportive, extremely knowledgeable, experienced, effective. She loves the horses and cares deeply especially when very difficult decisions have to be made. I can't rate her high enough.

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.

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.

Money before any treatment even as my pet ( who is like my child ) is dying! I started with Dr. Snow in 1982 with numerous pets. NEVER was my pet kept waiting in a emergency situation to get cash, check or credit card before even checking my pet.When these people got the place they also got all patient files. All they had to do was look at my 6 inch thick file to know that i have always paid for my pets care. BUT THEY DIDN'T CARE. I wouldn't take my already dead pet to them....
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
