If you have a cat that doesn't like going to the vet, take them here. My cat normally hisses and growls at the vet office the whole time, but she apparently felt relax here and only growled and hiss at the end of the examine. They were wonderful with my cat. She had an eye issue, and I took her to my previous vet they didn't really examine her and sent me to a specialist. At the specialist office I complained about my previous vet and how they wouldn't listen to me on how to approach my cat. The vet tech came back in to tell me what extra test the specialist wanted my regular vet to perform and I mentioned again my displeasure with my previous vet, and the tech told me to try out this place as she had once worked here and everyone is good with cats. I took her in that afternoon to get the specialist requested test completed. My cat didn't have an issue while being examined by Dr Simonds and Dr Simonds found an obvious issue with my cat's teeth that my previous vet missed the day before all together. I left my cat overnight so they could complete some further tests that required sedation, so they could be done first thing in the morning. Dr Simonds called me to tell me what they saw preliminary from the tests, and she told me that if the further testing confirmed she would need to put my cat on medication and wanted to discuss administration options I could go with a pill, liquid, or cream format. Dr Simonds called me to tell me I could pick my cat up and to tell me the other test results would be back the next day possible the next week at the latest. The next day she called and told me the results of her tests and confirmed that my cat had what the preliminary test had shown, and asked after thinking about the different application methods, which way would I like to use. She called in the scripts and my cat was started on her new meds that evening. Quality service and my cat felt at ease with the staff.

Busch Animal Hospital
Went to go get medication for my cat that had tape worms. I had always heard that the veterinarian who worked here was always so friendly and fair with all his customers that walk through his doors so I had to see for myself. When I got to Busch animal hospital, I was surprised at how clean the facilities were. I met the doctor and staff (who were so kind and courteous) and he explained to me the price for the tape worm medication, and he also offered a package deal special that also included the price for the office visit, rabies, distemper, and a check for worms other than tape worms. He gave me the option and didn't "force" me, so to speak, to go with the package deal. He was even so kind to allow me all the time I needed to make my decision. I'm glad I went for the complete package deal, cause his prices are definitely cheaper than other vets I've been to. I will definitely be back here and definitely recommend this veterinarian to everyone who wants personalized quality health care for their pet!

Busch Animal Hospital
I returned from my first visit to the Busch Animal Hospital earlier today for my 7 year old dog's annual check up. Dr. Girgis and his staff are very caring and warm and I could tell they truly love animals and care about them. Their service was fast and the exam and treatments were very thorough. I really liked his cozy animal hospital, and I really respect that he truly cares for his pets and his business. I came on a busy day, and he still managed to give me and Nala (my dog) the same amount of time and care he'd give on a not so busy day. I highly recommend this vet and will bring my beloved dog here anytime she needs a check up.

I have been going to these Vets for many many years. They are all excellent! They are kind and gentle with you're pets, and seem to care about every animal that they see.I have had to put to sleep 3 of my dogs over the years due to cancer, or some other bad illness, and they are wonderful and Dr Drake morn's along with you. They may be a bit pricey, but it seems that the prices are high every where. These guys are great! I am sure you will love them like I do!!

I thoroughly appreciate the call a few days later just to make sure things were still going ok. I also really appreciate that beyond mentioning what extra care our animal could get and walking through the pricing of it, you don't force the issue and accept that not all pet owners can afford everything all at once. Thank you for that.

I tell everyone to go to The Cat Doctors.I am so glad you are there to take care of all my babies!! I have used the same vet for years: she is always very good with my fractious cats. Same goes for all the office staff. I would definitely especially recommend you to people who's cats are less than comfortable coming to the vet.

I really appreciated that you let me bring in Nicky's urine sample since I've had a hard time figuring out when I could bring him in due to my schedule. Was also nice to find out results the next day. I can't say it enough how happy I am to have you taking care of my boy ! Thanks to you all Doctors and staff, your great.

Ehrlich Animal Hospital Tampa
I would high recommend Ehrlich Aniimal Hospital and Dr. Allen. We recently rescued a Pit Bull. The staff was so good with Tank (he gets nervous with new people still). They made him relax and he absolutely loved everyone (sorry he gives such wet kisses). The BEST vet experience I have ever had.

I was pleasantly surprised to have a personal call from Dr. Simon 2 weeks after our visit, when she knew we would be home from our vacation. That call was icing on the cake that the doctors at Cats Doctors have that much true concern and compassion even after our visit!
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
