Mobile Vet in The Villages, Florida with Reviews -

Paws Animal Hospital
Highly Recommend! I took my two bunnies here for a dental with Dr. DiBoot. I found her to be highly knowledgable and very rabbit savvy. I searched through many "rabbit savvy vets" who lacked the skills and current modern advanced knowledge to care for my buns, especially my delicate senior mitter bunny. Dr. DiBoot and her staff were so considerate and gentle with my buns. After his dental I was ready for the complications that usually arise after vet care, instead my fragile bunny recovered doing binkies the day after. Top rate care, the staff is wonderful, kind and curtious, this place is well worth the price for the level of care my buns recieved. I could'nt be happier to finally find a true rabbit savvy and exotic vet after going through a few dissapointed to finding the one who is a true keeper. If any vet tells you its O.K to fast your bunny for any reason, RUN, don't walk away, they are not rabbit savvy!If you have an exotic pet you couldnt do better than this place.

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
