VCA Tomball Veterinary Hospital
I have been coming here about 6 years after trying several vets in the area and I just fell in love with dr filip who loves animals and I can see that's why she is a vet. I have a special needs dog who has had total hip replacement and pancreatitis and gastritis and several allergy issues and chronic joint pain. Oh did I mention. My dog is 110 Saint shepherd who loves dr filip too! She will actually get on the floor to check her ears and vitals. I just can't say enough about her and this practice. I have 4 cats and two dogs and have taken them all and a few others that are at the rainbow bridge. I actually brought a cat to anither vet in tomball just to check out other places. I was wishing I didn't. Long story short he was put asleep by A&M and they didn't even call me to say sorry or ??? But my vet had heard and sent me a card signed by everybody. She has operated in my male cat and Saved his life...I will never change again.

West Main Veterinary Clinic
I have used this vet clinic for years and they are absolutely hands down the best clinic ever. Dr. Pusok and Amanda are awesome. They care as much for your animals as you do. I drive from Katy to bring my dogs to Dr. Pusok when there are vets all around me but none like him.

I absolutely love Dr. Filip. She is one of the most honest and helpful doctors I have ever met. If it wasn't for her, one of my cats would not be alive. I highly recommend her and the super sweet staff.
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
