Brown Veterinary Hospital
Dr Brown is great, we were excited to learn she had her own practice. She is caring, helpful, and always willing to try new treatments and methods for dogs and cats. Her staff are great, and they see you right away. Just a great practice. It's a shame we live further away but have made longer trips just to have her tend to our dogs. She has a great report with the animals and owners, and is just a great lady. She answers emails personally and is willing to give advice of alternative medicines and care.

Airport Veterinary Clinic
This place is the BEST! Dr. Holscher and Dr. Lowdermilk are always helpful and the staff is very compassionate. I recently had to put down one of my older pets, and the Receptionists and Nurses sent me flowers. Although there are several veterinarians closer to me, I refuse to go anywhere but Airport Veterinary Clinic.

Dr. Andy Pickering is the best! After ingesting rat poison, we rushed our labrador retriever to Wabash Valley Animal Hospital. They saw us almost immediately, reacted quickly, and were very knowledgable and caring. Thank you!!

I really appreciate the excellent care Bella received. Dr. Jones' surgical expertise removed $7.10 in coins from Bella's stomach. Bella is eating very well and acts her normal/ mischevious self.

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
