Beware! We had two different credit cards compromised right after using Tarpon Animal Hospital - neither CC was used for internet shipping and one CC was only used for automatic payments. Read the reviews - all the 5 star reviews are FAKE. When we first moved here in 2011 they had bad ratings so they hired a company to clean them up. Look at the e-mail name formats - they're all very similar. Every month they have a few new names add a 5 star comment.. All of the bad comments are gone. BEWARE!!

I hate Dr.'s whether it is for people or our pets. This vet is very good at dealing w my phobias and our Bassets.

Their prices are a little high but they have always worked with me to make sure the 5 Huskies I have had over the past 5 years of going to them have received the best care possible!! The girls there have always been very nice and accommodating to all my needs regarding making appointments, getting us into a room quickly so we are not stuck out in the waiting room for very long, and allowing me to assist them to ease my fur babies from any fear or discomfort they may have to endure during their visit. I recommend them and will continue to use them. Just wish their parking lot was larger and easier to maneuver.

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
