Metropolitan Veterinary Hospital
Metro Vet is a locally owned and operated animal hospital that treats your pets like the family members they are, providing them with compassionate care. Just like you wouldn't drop Granny off at a nursing home where you don't trust the staff, you also need to have confidence in the Doctor you trust to provide your animal's care. Here, they have generous office hours during the week, and even offer some weekend hours. The Technicians and support staff are very helpful both in person and on the phone, I have never been left wanting more answers after a visit or waiting long for my call to be returned if I leave them a message outside of business hours about a concern.Integrity is the hallmark here, great personalized care for your pets, more face time with doctors than you expect, who both take the time to explain and listen to your concerns. I probably shouldn't admit that I feel we should all be paying more for this specialized care.I am quite sure the choices made for my pet here are in its best interest, and not because it is the most expedient/cheapest/easiest approach. The attention to detail and committment to going the extra mile for every creature that walks, crawls or slithers in sets this place apart. You'll know within moments of arriving that you've made a great choice.

Coalition Humane Spay & Neuter
Was very scared to take our little dog to get spayed and everything worked out well. While it was a little chaotic at check in, it was organized and well run. I requested at sign up for special meds for our little girl due to motion sickness, and they were very accommodating. The instructions they send you home with answered all my questions and helped me to know what to look for as far as infections, licking her operation site, emergency follow up for when they aren't open at vets local to me, etc. So glad this opportunity was available to me as I wouldn't have been able to afford it otherwise. They even trimmed her little black nails!

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
