Valencia Animal Hospital
Although the clinic is a bit of a drive for me and the cats, Dr. Z and the staff at Valencia Animal Hospital are well worth the trek. The clinic is exceptionally clean with separate entrances and rooms for cats and dogs. The wait time is quick to below average, and Dr. Z is attentive, caring, and hilarious too. She is one of the few vets I have been to that seems to have an equal love for all types of animals: cats, dogs, birds, etc! As a cat owner, I appreciate the care and patience Dr. Z exercises while dealing with my crabby old boy cat. This has not often been the case at other vets. The other thing to note: I have never felt pressured to order expensive tests. The doctor is very clear to distinguish between tests that are absolutely necessary, recommended, and top of the line. With a hyperthyroid and heart murmur cat, the tests alone could wipe out my bank accounts and then some. It's been really great to work with a vet that is sensitive to your limitations and helps you plan/manage your pet's care without making you feel irresponsible. She is great about giving multiple options of both diagnostics and treatment, again without pushing the most expensive plan as the mandatory course of action.The pricing for my animals medication is also noticeably cheaper here than in comparison to what I was paying at a VCA clinic and another private vet clinic. Overall, I appreciate the hospital's great care, good prices, and respectfulness. Highly recommended!

Camino Seco Pet Clinic
My boyfriend and I just moved to Tucson from New York with our 1 year old black lab. After an unfortunate brawl with another dog, my pup was left with a sore leg/limp. We decided to bring him into Camino Seco Pet Clinic because it was right around the corner from our house... I'm so glad that we did! First off, it was not only convenient for me because it was close to home, but the clinic also has extended hours! I called kind of last minute to get my dog in so I wasn't able to get him an appointment until the following day. However, the receptionist called me back shortly thereafter letting me know there had been a cancellation, and I could bring him in that night. I was very impressed that they actually called me back! Upon arriving, my dog was brought in to be looked at right away. The vet tech was also extremely friendly to me and expressed a lot of care for my injured dog. She was so nice, and went out of her way to welcome me to Tucson and give me ideas of what I should do around the area. In addition, the vet that my dog saw was equally as great! Similarly, she was just as nice and knew a lot about dogs/behaviors/injuries. Overall, I am very impressed and definitely plan on bringing my dog back there for all his future visits.

Cimarron Animal Hospital
A great veterinarian, and a great clinic! Dr. Deb Bohnke and her staff are knowledgeable, compassionate, and genuinely care about the health of the animals they see. Most importantly, they go out of their way to work with clients, fit in emergency appointments, help owners understand what's going on with an animal's health, and how to treat (or prevent) a problem so your pet is happy and healthy. I have used their services for several years, during which they treated two of my geriatric dogs, and two younger dogs, including one who had a serious blood infection. I know their care extended the time I had with my pets, and continues to improve the time my family shares with the two who are still with us. Finding the right verterinarian is as hard as finding a good family Doctor -- it's not just about whether the Doctor knows the medicine (which Dr. Bohnke does), it's about whether they listen to the owner (the person who knows the animal better than anyone), care about the pet, and can work with the owner. I feel like I found the right veterinarian when I found Cimmarron Animal Hospital, and highly recommend her to anyone who needs a good veterinarian.

Paula Medler DVM
Not the business, but the vet. I've known Paula Medler for something like 35 years. I, or rather my dog, was her first patient when she joined a Tucson practice. Dr. Medler got me through some of the worst times of my life - when my dog (PJ) swallowed an embroidery needle and needed endoscopic surgery, when another dog (Katie) was bitten for the seventh (!!!) time by a rattlesnake and needed 3 days in doggy ICU and I forget how many vials of antivenin, when the retired guide dog (Viceroy) I'd adopted began to have seizures and needed so much medication, when my Golden (JessieV) finally reached her last days at 16 and Paula cried as much as I did - and the list goes on and on. I doubt you can find a better, more caring, more involved veterinarian than Paula Medler, DVM!! As for the application of Chinese medicine techniques, I remember when she came back from training and I watched her use those techniques, with such amazing results. She's the best. SIX stars!!!!!

Dog Training Mobile - Home Dog Training
Gerard came into our life because our Vet of 20 years suggested we try his method before we give up. We did treat training, we tried all the equipment and send away stuff. Non of it stopped Lucy's barking in the house and dog aggression outside.I can only say this; if I didn't see it myself, I may not believe it either. After the first lesson all of it stopped. By the third less we had a different dog. Loving, calm, relaxed... Gerard thank you! He showed us how to take control. I was always afraid of being mean to my dog or hurting her. But the methods are not mean at all, yes at times we had to be firm and I learned my dog needed that. I am very satisfied with gerard and the bark busters here in Tucson. Even after my training Gerard is available.

Pawz & Clawz Custom Homes
Smart using the name of a wonderful mobile groomer to get your business off the ground!!! I would say though, you will be getting a lot of calls for her because of it. Also, if you really want the name to match the business, it should be PAWZ & CLAWZ CUSTOM PET HOMES (OR EVEN ABODES IF YOU WANT TO BE QUAINT). You may want to put a disclamer that you are not affiliated with the other business and send the right number, people will be impressed and come back to you for your honesty. Heck the owners are so nice that they might even endorse you. They are a family business and the wife is disabled, but she is always wanting to help other businesses. Good luck and I will start you off with an awesome review for the clever name.........

Speedway Veterinary Hospital
Dr. Boyer is AMAZING! My mom passed and I "inherited" her dog. I took my dog here because she had a mass on her rectum. A friend referred me and had only positive things to say bout the office and the staff. The staff was super nice and attentive. My dog received the medical attention she needed. Dr. Boyer was very informative on what needed to be done and the different options I had to remedy the situation. The rooms are super clean (no fur everywhere like other vet offices I have been to), you can purchase food in the lobby, and they have covered parking. I also have a 11-year-old dog, which I plan on bringing in soon to get her teeth cleaned. Thanks Speedway Veterinary Hospital!

Valencia Animal Hospital
I've been going to Valencia Animal Hospital since they opened. I love this place!. The staff is friendly, caring and will try to work you in in an emergency to make sure your pet is cared for. My animals are always comfortable going there. I think the sun rises and sets in Dr. Rosen! She always gives my 5 animals the greatest care. This lady truly cares about her patients and loves the critters who come to visit her. She is understanding and is willing to work with me while giving my furry kids the very best care possible. What a great vet and staff.

Gerard has proven to us that you can “teach an old dog new tricks.” We are grateful that the “tools” Gerard gave us to train our 7-year-old Jack Russell Terrier, Katie, made such a big improvement in her behavior in just a month. In just a few short weeks she changed from an aggressive, anti-social, fearful barker to an obedient, calm, friendly, social dog. The change in her has amazed our friends and neighbors. And Katie is enjoying all the extra attention because she is so well-behaved. Thank you, Gerard!June, Skip & Katie -Tucson

Bear Canyon Pet Clinic
Bear Canyon Pet Clinic is simply the best around. They genuinely care about animals and give excellent service. They are also reasonably priced (I know this because I switched vets about 5 years ago because at the other clinic I had good treatment but was being ripped off). Dr. Van Erven and her great team helped us with vaccines, USDA, and other steps through an extremely complicated pet transport from the US to New Zealand. We couldn't have done it without their assistance, patience, and professionalism. We highly recommend them.
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
