I have never, EVER met a vet who REALLY cares about animals the way dr. Solomon does. He is compassionate and funny, and explores all venues for making your pet's care as easy on him and on you as possible . Indeed, the facilities are not fancy, but he also charges us LITERALLY 10 times less than VSEC in PA (so if you want state-of-the-art facilities be prepared to pay for them yourself). I would not dream ever taking my dogs anywhere else.

LOVE LOVE LOVE these vets!! They are so friendly, and my dog LOVES to see all of the technicians and doctors. I've seen all 3 vets (they are all women), and they are all nice, and take time to talk to me. My dog Buddy has several problems that, but they treat him so gently, and give him cookies, and they have really helped him over the years. I won't go anywhere else- Nottingham Rocks!

Dr. Solomon has cared for our dogs and cats for 30 years. He is a little quirky, but that makes the visit more enjoyable. He only cares about the animals, so no, the decor is not high fashion, but it all works. I dread the day he retires! YP has the hours wrong though. He is not open 24/7. Call to verify the hours.

RIP Dr. Solomon. Our family veterinarian for over 30 years. Always great with the animals and quick with a corny joke! Hamilton NJ has lost a great vet.

Wonderful doctor, prices are excellent. He's old school, but honest in his practice. I trust Dr. Solomon with all of my pets and recommend him highly.
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
