VCA Pet Medical Center
Have been taking my pets to Pet Medical Center for over 5 years. Dr. Bach is the best! She has taken very good care of pets in emergency situations as well as routine check ups. I highly recommend them.

We are so glad that the Vets and staff were able to get us in on an emergency. Our dog ate some chocolate and needed to get medical attention. He is all better now. Thank you all.

Vail Ranch Veterinary Hospital
This vet is a nice change from my previous vet who was nice but horribly overpriced and rarely returned phone calls. I found this vet easy to talk with AND understand (and I'm a speed talker) and not at all the kind to suggest superfluous testing or procedures. Twice I've had what I thought were emergencies but he assuaged my fears and we took the conservative approach first and it worked out for my dogs. His office ALWAYS returned phone calls within the day even when they were not emergent or had to do with just pricing of meds, etc. When my dog stopped walking Christmas Eve they rushed me in and stopped his pain and my tears, saving our holiday season. Finally, when I inquired about a lost dog I found (I needed it checked for a microchip) he quickly asked me if I needed him to board it; he specifically didn't want me dropping it off at some shelter and risking its chances. NICE CHANGE from some places that make you wonder why they went into the animal saving and loving business. I recommend this place fully and without hesitation.
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
