The Cat Doctors
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.

Oh my gosh!! Are we talking about same place I go to? The people and "staff" who left these terrible reviews obviously dont know Dr. Jims heart. Sure the buildings old but its only a building..... Whats important is WHO is caring for your pet. BTW.... They have done lots of improvements to inside of building. Sure he went thru terrble divorce. But most of us have been through that ourselves. Exes dont play fair and leave many BROKE and starting over from nothing. I can tell you that Dr. Jim is NOT all about money because I do cat rescue and he is very generous with his time and makes things affordable out of the goodness of his heart. Staff has told me he is incredibly caring and comes in each day greeting, comforting and talking to all the animals. Not to mention HE saved one of my rescue kittens from a leg amputation by doing STEM CELL THERAPY. There are no other vets in the area that do this and any other vet would have amputated. This cat is now an adult and has his leg thanks to Dr. Jim. He also trests cats with Leukemia!! Other vets euthanize. Treatment works on about 80% of cats. He does lots of this for low cost for rescues. We are all human. Give Dr. Jim a break. I am a legit rescue.....Not a family member or friend. My name is Meg Wilcox ...... Cat Rescue:)

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!

I come out of my way with my pet for the Dr. but, his staff needs a update on people skills. Never before have I felt attacked to the point I felt I had to defend myself and it was done in front of other clients.. I was even told that front desk staff had told me in the past about a test that needed updating which was totally false. In the past front desk has taken wrong information on meds I needed . I had to return and get the correct meds. and I kept my cool. They have also waited to call me until right when I was home already to let me know my credit card was still in their possession. I kept my cool again. When I first started coming to see Dr. I was so happy I had found a place that really cared for my little dog. Now I hope this bitter tastegoes away because I still do not doubt the Dr"s skills. I have recommended my friends to the Dr in the past so I hope they are treated with more compassion and thought because 1st impressions are not retrievable and this is how a business can be ruined.

Hyde Park Veterinary Clinic
Our Junebug had a persistent cough, and we had gotten a really nice letter from Hyde Park Veterinary Clinic for a FREE examination of a new pet. They are 6 doors from my house so we HAD to try them out, even though we had taken our Junebug to another vet for years. You can't walk-in there, which we tried....we came back two days later with an appointment. I wouldn't say the front staff is warm and friendly: they are more 'professional' than that. Junebug got her exam, they took her away for 2 minutes for tests. The vet was professional and knowledgeable, and she recommended $250 in tests to determine the nature of the cough. As we were walking out, we were stopped to check out. The young male technician barked out "$71.65" with no explanation of the charges. I paid. And vowed not to come back. So, if you get a letter for a free examination, you've been warned.

Cross Creek Animal Medical Centre
AS hard as it is to have to leave my four legged children behind when we have to travel, I did not have as heavy a heart when I knew they would be in excellent, loving hands staying with the Cross Creek Animal Medical crew :0) It is such a huge relief to know that my dogs are not only being well taken care of while I'm away, but it is so comforting to know that they are getting all the love and attention they truly need.Thank you, once again, Cross Creek Animal Medical Center for doing such an amazing job and being truly committed to doing it at such an exemplary level! You are all incredible people who I count as not only my vet who helps me take care of my four-legged children, but I consider you as part of my family as well!Cheers to each of you!Michele Monroe-Rowe(Maggie, Spencer, Simon, & Nacho)

The office is great since it is under new managment and ownership. Nothing has been put in the building for so long, but they are starting to make improvments to the clinic. The staff is very helpful and considerate. I know some of the employees there and the treatment of the animals always come first. They stayed for my cat that was attacked by a dog till after 9pm to make sure she was ok. I'm sure if you are a previous employee you must be a disgruntled employee, because they have really improved the facility and are making improvements each time I go in there with my cats. Dr. Jim is just the best and has changed so much he is really a caring person. I would recomment this clinic to anyone. And they are much better with their prices than anyone around.

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.

Citrus Park Animal Bird & Exotics Hospital
I have been going to Citrus Park Animal Hospital for over 8 years and I love it! All of my pets have been cared for by the staff like they were their own. The staff is so compassionate and Dr. Brooks always takes the time to explain everything to me and answer all of my questions. The prices are reasonable and I have never been asked to perform any unnecessary tests on my pets. Any time I ask they always provide me with an estimate before any procedure. I have called at the very last second before and they have always fit me in anytime I needed to get my babies seen. All of my critters are very happy and healthy thanks to them!

Northdale Animal Hospital
The Doctor and Staff are all very helpful and seem truly concerned about my dogs. I'm new to the area, but quickly realized Dr. Hong is a wonderful caring person. His office is busy and not fancy, but the service is better than the expensive vets. They took the time to check my dogs, review their records, and made sure I understood everything. There was no pressure to buy expensive foods or supplements, like at my previous vet. The office visit fee was very reasonable. I'm very glad I found this office, I trust them and will definitely be a permanent customer.
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
