★★★★★ in the last weekMy best friend ever, DAISY LEE, was in terrible condition from numerous tumor like growths one of them dragging the ground from her belly. Another Tallahassee Veterinarian nearly killed her in a failed attempt to perform corrective surgery. After 10 days of intensive recovery and I was seriously considering having to Euthanize her as the tumor was about to rupture. She was miserable, looked bad and was about to give up on life. Dr. Eric Randell took an unsolicited interest in her tragic situation and offered their assistance. I reluctantly agreed to attempt the surgery again instead of putting my baby to sleep.HOORAH! Dr. Wallace operated for over 2 hours, removing all of Daisy Lee's growths and then sewed her up like a giant beanbag. She survived the operation and has now gotten her stitches out and is working hard everyday to grow new beautiful shiny fur. In the meantime her youth has returned. She is happy, energetic and silly. It is so nice to have my dog back. They quite literally saved her life. It is a new Spring for her after a dark, cold, terrible Winter.We want to think the entire staff and Dr. Wallace, O'reilly, and especially Eric for the love, compassion and professionalism that they displayed. They are wonderful in every possible way.

Dr. Hall is amazing. When all is said and done, she will love your pet almost as much as you do. She is kind and gentle, and establishes a great rapport with the fur babies and their humans.

Great experience from the time we walked in the door! We are so grateful we transferred our very ill dog here, was diagnosed quickly and surgery was performed immediately. Dr. Morales and Dr. Jehn are the best! Highly recommend.

This might be a somewhat lengthy review but I want to explain why I am not just arbitrarily leaving a bad rating:I adopted a 3 year old cat from the Leon County animal shelter and brought her in for a recommended veterinary visit. At this visit I was told that my cat needed to come in for a dental cleaning, and that the clinic was having a discounted special for such cleanings in the month of September. I scheduled an appointment for her and brought her in, and was told that the cleaning would amount to around $500, WITH the discounted pricing. I was also told that the clinic recommended doing blood work before the procedure. I agreed to have the blood work done, and left in expectation that I would pick up my cat that afternoon after her cleaning. I am a graduate student who was in class and so missed the two phone calls that I received from the veterinarian. When I was finally able to contact them I was told that they had not performed the procedure. Apparently when they first took my cat's temperature it was elevated, which the vet admitted was most likely attributed to her being stressed as she had just been dropped off. The veterinarian said that they had run blood work on my cat and the original results came back with all sorts of weird levels. The veterinarian took my cat's temperature again and it was normal, ran the blood work again and it came back normal, and said that she exhibited no physical signs of being ill. She also admitted to me that they have been having trouble with their blood work machine, and so there was really no certainty as to the reliability of the results. They decided not to perform the procedure "just in case" but recommended that I bring her back in in a month to have more blood work done, and then back in another time to perform the dental cleaning procedure. Although this was frustrating I was led to believe that this was in my cat's best interest. When I picked up my cat from the vet, I was informed that I would be charged $60 for the (unreliable) blood work that had been done that day, and $60 more whenever I brought her in again per their recommendation for more blood work. Keep in mind that this situation would not have been necessary were they to maintain their machines in proper working order. I expressed to them that I saw no reason why I should be charged twice for blood work when it was their machinery producing varied results. The veterinarian refused to be flexible about the charges, and so I essentially spent $60 to be told that something could possibly be wrong but probably wasn't, and to wait. Mind you if I had declined to have the blood work done, I would have been saved the $60 and my cat would have received her dental cleaning that day. I find this sort of business practice very unethical, and want to warn people about a practice that is clearly just looking to take advantage of any opportunity they can to make money. As a graduate student I have an extremely limited income, and cannot afford to just keep throwing money at the clinic without receiving any benefit from it. I found the veterinarian's refusal to acknowledge their fault in the situation unreasonable and her attitude towards my being extraneously charged extremely dismissive. I was visibly upset, and was told by other members of the staff once the veterinarian left that they would let the owner know about the situation and have them contact me. It has been almost a week and I have received no such call. DO NOT TAKE YOUR PETS HERE. Instead I would recommend finding a veterinarian who is interested in providing animals with the care they need, as opposed to nickel and diming people however possible.

I've been using this vet for over 10 years. The last three I brought my pets in as a walk-in appointment I had to wait over an hour plus each time. I understand that they have people with appointments but they say they accept walk-ins.

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
