I would highly recommend this clinic, they listen to,what we were saying about our rottweiler and agreed end with us that not only was this girl born blind but now has asthma and they helped out tremendously as far as meds and simply listen to us the owners. They have been treating my girl now for 4 years and they are wonderful vets. I was to another clinic and the vet there all she did was tell me my dog was allergic to food and that I needed to buy her special food after numerous visits and what I call now the pull my finger vet. If I could give more stars for surprise animal hospital I would.

We took our cat Quick Silver in because he was not doing well at all. They got us in right away. The ladies that helped us were so helpful and full of concern. It warmed our hearts. The staff was very friendly and the place was very clean. We loved it here, and will come back, that is for sure. They worked with us with payments and only had us do what was extremely important for the moment. That means a lot because that showed us that they we not there only for money, that they really cared about our Quick Silver. Thank you so much Surprise Animal Hospital, from our family.... We love you

The best!! I can't say enough good things about them. The staff and doctors are caring and compassionate. We came to them on a recommendation from a friend as truly a last hope for our very sick Great Dane. Our other Vet had all the bells and whistles but was missing good old fashion caring compassionate vet care . Dr St Clair and Dr Amy took the time to listen and are helping us greatly. They are reasonably priced and money is not the first concern. They are worth the money and the drive. They have a client for life in us and our family. They are awesome.

Everyone, from Dr. Waitman, to the staff, are wonderful and caring. Dr. Waitman called me several times to follow up on my cat, Missie and certainly took away my anxiety about her. I would give VCA El Mirage ten stars if I could and highly recommend them for cats, dogs or any other pet. I was at another animal hospital before this and believe me, they don't compare.

They have been so wonderful caring and so quick to get back to us on everything that our little Charlie is going through. I would never change doctors and always recommend them to anyone I hear that needs a vet. Thank you to all of you for always making our experience just perfect. Might I add great prices and excellent service. ����

They were absolutely wonderful with our blind dog after her surgery. She did not heal as fast as expected due to the location of the surgery sight. Everyone was so compassionate with us and her, even the persons who checked us out at the end of the visits. Thank you to all the staff of Grandpaws Animal Clinic.

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
