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:)

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.

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!

The Crossing Church
It is with a very saddened heart that I am writing this reviewOn Easter morning I watched a painter paint a picture of a caucasian male and attempt to present it as a depiction of the Lord and Savior. With all of the racial concerns continuing to overshadow the good in this world, I would have expected this church to assist in trying to bring everyone together under our God.It appears (as usual) that a caucasian lead church continues to promote false images to satisfy its own egos and prejudices. Taking on the task of representing the Gospel and its teachings is a serious endeavorExodus 20:4-5,

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.

Wellswood Midtown Animal
Took my golden retriever for a check-up and they were absolutely fantastic. They were extremely attentive. They spotted a disalignment in my dog's spine that none of our previous vets have noticed (or at least mentioned to us) for years! They're experienced and friendly. The vet also personally called us a few days later to check up on our dog, which no previous vet has ever took the time to do so. That really showed us their value for customer service. I couldn't be happier with Wellswood Animal Hospital. I will most definiely return with my other pet as well.

Community Thrift Store
I had a great experience at this thrift store. I found some amazing items. The day I went in I had a terrible headache and I felt bad. I needed to take my meds to get rid of my headache. I saw a young man who I was told was the manager. I told him I wasn't feeling well and asked if I could get some water. He got me some cold water and took my items to my car for me. It was nice to see that there are some nice young people who don't mind helping an elderly woman like myself. I will tell all of my friends about this store and I will most definitely go back.
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
