We took our pets to Dr. Eastin for years and never had the kinds of problems I'm seeing posted here. I've worked in the veterinary business myself so I know a bad practice when I see it. The Sterling Park Veterinary clinic is NOT a bad practice. Dr. Eastin is a very knowledgeable vet and handles the animals gently and compassionately - which is half the battle when bringing in a frightened pet. Greg in the front office is friendly and efficient. The assistants who work there obviously love animals - that's why they are in that job.We didn't think the prices were out of line. Remember, a veterinary practice is like any other business and there are a lot of costs associated with running it: the years of education and training before the veterinarian can perform surgeries, salaries, overhead costs, upfront purchases of medications and other supplies, property and other related insurances. The list goes on.Working folks are used to having insurance from their jobs, which brings their out-of-pocket costs down. So when they go to a veterinarian with their pets, they seem to think it should be the same over there (hence the "pricey" and "nickel and dime" remarks). Well, pet insurance has become very common now so if you want to experience lower out-of-pocket pet related costs, I suggest getting a pet insurance plan.All this said, you can be sure that we would still be going there to this day had we not moved to another state.

My dog died there because of the incompetence of the vet. If you take your animal there, you're a fool. In some circles, the vet is known as "Dr. Death."

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
