Academy Animal Care
I've had the best vet experience both times I brought my dog here. I am astounded that I left smiling because I didn't have to wait AT ALL. I was given a same day appointment. And as soon as I walked in, we were led directly into the diagnostic room where a polite and cheerful Vet Nurse was ALREADY WAITING FOR US! :-DRight after the nurse was done.... the Doctor came RIGHT IN and saw us!She listened to why we were there very patiently and understood everything the FIRST TIME I explained. VERY ATTENTIVE!The Veterinarians didn't over charge me for anything unnecessary, like has been done in the past. I am one happy dog owner! =)And to top off an already wonderful experience! The front desk made me feel very welcome and was overall awesome! They even taught me how to use the customer Keurig machine Lol! ;-)I can't thank them enough for this amazing experience. And I recommend Academy Animal Care for YOU and your pets!!!

Suffolk Animal Hospital
I have a champion female standard poodle that has suffered with an ear infection in both ears for over two years. Tried this, tried that, nothing worked. Dr. Carr took a sample, sent it off to IDEXX labs and the ear infection is gone. Dr. Carr and her staff are very kindly and listen to what you say and let you explain what you want. They take the time and not just allow you 10 min and hurry you along. Dr. Carr comes and talks to you and listens to you herself. She does not run in, touch the dog and go and you never see her again. Then a bill is presented for the same amount as your house payment. Dr. Carr and her staff at Suffolk Animal hospital really care about your feelings and your fears and frustration. It is like they are being a doctor for you as well as for your pet.

I am very, very pleased with Suffolk Animal Hospital and Dr. Carr and the girls. They have been very good to me and to Yager and my girls. Yager had heartworms and now he is a happy, healthy dog thanks to Dr. Carr. I highly recommend Suffolk Animal Hospital.
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
