Davis Animal Hospital
I went to Davis Animal Hospital for two years. My dog had an issue that Dr. Davis suggested a couple different treatments for. Neither worked, yet he kept telling me to keep at it. I visited him multiple times for this issue and each time I was charged around $45 for him to tell me nothing new. I eventually went to another vet for a second opinion because my pet's illness had gotten so bad. The other vet diagnosed my dog with a level 4 (out of 5) STAPH infection. It took them all of ten minutes to correctly diagnose and treat my dog with the appropriate medication. I was so angry that my pet was suffering for so long (months and months!) and Dr. Davis never thought to test for anything else or try another treatment since this one wasn't helping whatsoever. If this hadn't happened to my pet, I probably would still go there as they are perfectly competent at giving shots and other routine veternary care. However, if your pet has a legitimate illness that may be hard to treat or may require testing to diagnose, DON'T GO HERE. One star because my pet was in PAIN for months because of their laziness and incompetence.

This is a joke, I don't think anyone that works here has ever been to college for a veterinarian. Maybe they are part time pet smart employees? They misdiagnosed my dog saying it would die without rushing it to a emergency clinic and charged me 180.00 for one xray that wasn't barley readable. They are crocked. Do not ever take a pet you love to these people they are stupid. Complete idiots, benfield should be shut down all together.

Overcharged when I was quoted a certain price, never received radiographs by the deadline I had asked, extremely rude and unprofessional staff, no regard for the clients. Still have not been credited for the amount I was told a week later.

DO NOT TAKE YOUR DOG HERE. They are a ripoff. They will enroll you on monthly plans and then when you take your dog in for a exam, shots and blood work that is to be covered they will tell you to pay more money, because the plan do not cover that. It is a racket. Contacting Better Business Bureau next.

Scotts Creek Animal Hospital
I see a couple poor reviews and I know the one receptionist seems a little stand offish at times, but they are super busy. I don't mind waiting because Dr. Cartner is AWESOME! My dog swallowed a sewing needle and we didn't know he had until a day later on a saturday at 11:30 when they x rayed his throat. They stayed after and kept him until his anesthesia wore off and they did give us care instructions. We could have lost our dog, but Dr. Cartner did an excellent job with last minute, emergency surgery. Also, my dog barks his head off so they usually get him in an exam room quick even though we may wait awhile, I've been a pet owner 41 years in many different cities and this is the best vet i have been to.

Dr. Davis has been my veterinarian for tweny years. I first met Dr. Davis when I adopted Puddin, my blue point Himalayan cat. Three days after adopting her she became very sick. Dr. Davis immediately saw her, properly diagnosed her, and began treatment. Upon researching her illness, I learned that she could've died within hours that day had Dr. Davis not correctly diagnosed and treated her when he did. Today,my precious Puddin was layed to rest. As always, Dr. Davis was brutally honest. He didn't try to run tests or suggest a whole array of treatments that she didn't really need to try to prolong her life so that he could make a few extra bucks. Dr. Davis was as he always is. . .except for the tear I caught in his eye and the lump I heard in his voice. . .Thank you Dr. Davis and a special thank you to your staff for the many years of excellent care, compassion, and honesty that you have provided to me and my family of pets throughout the years! Sincerely, Catherine McLaughlin

We borded our dog there for about a week while out of town. Later the same day we picked him up we noticed his chest was raw. He wears a harness and has never had that issue which tells me they left the harness on him for a week with out removing it!!! Now he has worms shortly after getting him back which we didn't have when we left him! Horrible service also!!! I will never ever take my dog back to them!

Doctors and assistants very nice - care is not cheap, though. Feel like they are concerned about pets and take care with them, but what is with the young receptionist? Never friendly and sometimes seems very irritated. She is the ' face' of your business and the first impression people get! Perhaps this is what happened to the Katie?

Angelcare Veterinary Hospital
We were lucky to find dr. Horton when we moved here in June, 2010. From Seattle. We had 2 dogs a lovely English springer spaniel (Sara)) &'an adorable rescue westie/French bulldog (.Karma). Dr. Horton was always at their level. She was on the floor with Sara & as someone else reviewed they got lots of treats & loved to see her. When Sara had a "stroke" in march, 2012& needed to be put down, it was Dr. Horten's day off & even though we were I good hands with the other. Vet, dr, horten came in just to be supportive. Now that's not only a great vet, but a compassionate & caring human being..

Recently, my cat was very sick and needed over night care. I took him to a vet close to our house, but decided to make the drive to Scotts Creek after hearing the price difference for the care necessary for him. The vets at Scotts Creek were very understanding of our financial situation and gave us every option available and discussed the price before each action was taken. We are very thankful for such a caring staff at Scotts Creek!
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
