I came to Bartonheights with my dog Roxy as an emergency. she was at creature Comfort for 10 days, I could see that they were not helping her. The staff a at Barton Heights took us right away, Dr Greenleaf, looked at my Roxy, told me she was in bad shape, and they would take the best care they could for her. My Roxy is a dieabetic. Well she was home in 2 day.doing much better. That was 2 years ago and Roxy is doing great. I tell everyone I meet that has a dog to go to Bartonheights Vet hospital. They saved my Roxys life. I went to Creature Comforts for 8 years and they almost killed her. I can never thank Bartonheights enough for saving my baby girl.

I have been going to Barton Heights for about two years now. Today I had to take an outside cat which I been feeding to be euthanized. I felt so bad. The technician explained everything to me. She was so kind and caring to this poor cat. The vet who administered the injection was wonderful. They allowed me time to spend with the cat before the procedure. They were wonderful . I can't say enough.Janet V. East Stroudsburg PA

I find all the staff that I have dealt with at Barton Heights to be extremely friendly and helpful. I went to Creature Comforts for many years, my cat died there from neglect. I tried 2 other places for my rescue with no luck. They are open 24/7
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
