My dog came in with constipation and came out dead. They charged $3,000 up front only to kill him and I have tried to get the blonde vet to talk to me about Henry's death but she will not take my call and this place called the police because of my instance to know what happened. The police never called me about this but this place told me they did and said to never call again. Stay far away from these scum and PLEASE don't trust your loved one to them.

I went in to have my dog looked at because his eye was swollen shut. He was treated for an abscess in his mouth; we were given medication to give him and told to contact them if there were any problems. I called the following afternoon to advise that my dogs condition was getting worse and that he was unable to take the medication. The emergency room technician began yelling over the phone stating that this is not her problem. I told them I would be happy to bring my dog back in in case something was wrong and again was yelled at for no reason. After spending $900 for an hours’ worth of treatment the least they could have done was be professional. Your animals will suffer from treatment at this facility and you will be treated just as poorly. AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS!
Tips & Advices
Bring medical records and medications that your pet is taking. Also, you should bring your ID and a form of payment.
Yes, there are veterinary clinics that only deal with emergency cases. They generally take walk-ins and referrals from family vets.
Yes, emergency vets treat dental emergencies and dental trauma. Freshly fractured teeth are the main category of dental injury that vets consider an emergency.
To prevent health emergencies, experts recommend supervising one’s pets, and trying to make sure they don’t get into emergency situations. A majority of emergency vet visits happen because animals were struck by cars, bit by other animals, or ingested toxins. Otherwise, the best way to prevent emergencies is by having a go-to vet you can call with any questions, and being vigilant about potential symptoms (i.e. runny stool, or trouble walking) as they appear but before they become extremely serious.
Experts say that the conditions that necessitate an emergency veterinarian visit include collapse, seizures, inability to walk, partial paralysis, and any difficulty breathing (non-stop panting, constant coughing, hyperventilation, or elevated heart rate). Gum color is often an indicator that something is wrong--especially blue gums or very pale gums. Excessive vomiting or a distended abdomen should be considered an emergency situation. Signs of any trauma or excessive bleeding should send your pet straight to the vet. Lastly, for cat owners, urinary obstruction is fatal if not treated, and generally occurs in male cats.
