Dear Jennifer L.As owners of Almost Home Pet Resort and in response of your review of our facility, we are sorry for the loss of your pet over the summer. However in your review of our facility, we feel that it is necessary to go over certain facts that pertain to your situation.Yes, you did book 2 suites for at our facility back on May 9th2014. After getting a copy of your pets shot records that we received from your vet; it stated that one of your pets was aggressive. According to our policy we require all pets that are aggressive to be brought in for evaluation. When we asked you why you needed 2 suites; you had stated that your pets can stay together but you wanted to book the extra room to keep your pets separated from the others. This sent us a red flag. We then asked for you to bring them in for their evaluations. After 4 MONTHS of requesting for you to bring in your pets to be evaluated numerous times, you told us that your male pet had passed away and for that we are truly sorry for your loss.On Sept. 13th, 2014, you brought into us your female pet, who was extremely nervous, anxious and shy. It took over a half an hour to finally coax your pet to go outside to see our facility with one of our owners. After taking her outside and seeing how she was reacting we suggested bringing her in for doggy daycare FREQUENTLY so that she could get used to us and the other pets around here like we have done with other pets like her. You booked her to come in on Sept. 19th, but cancelled due to possible rain that day and rescheduled her to come in on Sept 26; where you let her stay with us for 3 HOURS which is not enough time for any evaluation, playtime or observation with your pet. We then asked AGAIN to bring her in for longer stays of daycare to see how she will do around the others. WE THEN HEARD NOTHING FROM YOU. There were NO weekly play dates or sleepovers as you stated or any weekly conversations ever until November 4th when you wanted to try doggy daycare again. Our kennel tech told you that her Bordatella shot was out of date and that it would need to be redone at least 1 week prior to her play date because that is our policy being that it is a live virus that they use in the serum. You said ok. When we got the copy of your new record you had it done THE DAY BEFORE. Again, you did not follow our policy as we had asked for and we rescheduled her play date for Nov. 14th. One of the owners then called you back on November 7th upon hearing that you wanted to do daycare during the Thanksgiving holiday. He stated that we do not do daycare during the holidays because we will be busy and suggested that for her stay in December that we keep her in one of our Indoor/Outdoor rooms because she has not been here as often as she should have and that she may do better there than in the suite; and that is where we were going to move her to since we still did not know how she would be around strangers. We need to know this in case we need to handle your pet in case of an emergency and for the safety of our staff. This was not satisfactory to you and you said this wasn’t fair. We NEVER cancelled your pets stay or say that she could not stay with us during your vacation. You decided that for yourself. We tried to work with you for 7 months and yet you never followed through with anything we asked; when we asked until the last minute when time was running out. As a business owner we do have the right to make suggestions or change things as we see fit to better your pets stay with us. We are sorry you did not feel this way.-The owners of Almost Home Pet Resort

Yes, Dr Gary Gosney is probably the highest priced vet in Temple. BUT you get what you pay for. If you looking for cheap, go on the internet and do it yourself. GOOD LUCK!!!!! Fortunately, that is exactly what my wife and I have had with Dr Gosney. He is kind, considerate, compassionate,and understanding. We have patronized his practice for almost 30 years. We would and never will consider seeing another veterinarian. We bought our 5 year old daughter a poodle pup for her birthday. For the next 22 (yes 22) years, Dr Gosney cared for its health and well being(to which I attribute its longevity). And when the dreaded day came to compassionately end Fifi's time with us, NO ONE was more understanding and comforting than Dr Gosney and his staff. After a couple of years, we decided to acquire another pet. This time a black lab....Max. After eight years, we lost Max. Dr Gosney, who had also cared for Max, made a generous donation in Max's memory to the Texas A&M University Veterinarian School. Time passes and hearthaches fade. We now have two chihuahuas and they, like Fifi and Max, will NEVER have less than the best in medical care. And that care will be from Dr Gosney and his staff. They are the BEST and if that is what you desire for your pets, then there is no other more qualified and experienced team than that which you will find at the Temple Veterinary Hospital.

We have been taking our pets to Dr Gosney for two generations now, and would never dream of taking our fur babies anywhere else. From simple things to vaccinations to very complicated orthopedic surgery, to end of life care.. He's been there through it all with so many of our animals. Not only is his knowledge and skill spot on, but his warm, friendly personality is one of a kind.. You will see what I mean when you meet him. We sing nothing but Dr Goaneys praises, and have for a long time.

I love this place! Carole & Gem are the nicest people you'll ever meet. They have groomed all 5 of our dogs. I like that their not kept there all day. I love that their not kept in kennels. I like that they don't smell like they were bathed in perfume. You can tell that this isn't a job for either of them. They do it because they love dogs!!

Dr. Gosney is awesome! We have nothing but great things to say about him as our vet. We always feel like our dogs are in good hands with him and his staff. Glad we found him.
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
