Mission Pet Clinic
Dr. Callahan and staff are the kindest, most professional and caring I have ever known. My sister has been a client for over 30 years and all her animals have had the best care for very reasonable fees!

Eastside Pet Clinic
I have used DR. CURTIS for at least 8 years or more. She is the BEST veterinarian I have been to. If you need a end of life vehicle veterinarian, she will be with you and your pet throughout the experience. If your pet is ill or injured, she will give you options for care. She has low cost options, or more in depth care. Dr. CURTIS is a friend who will care for your pets throughout their life. I have nothing but positive, respect for Eastside Pet Clinic!

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!

Acacia Animal Hospital
We also had a bad experience at Acacia. Other reviewers who say money is their primary motivation are correct. They push expensive and unnecessary tests on people who have sick companion animals and who they know they can sucker into paying for the tests that won't do anything but enrich the owner of Acacia, Marc Laudonio.Instead, when people have pets who are suffering from fatal diseases, they should just tell them that they are fatal and let the pet owners decide what to do instead of pushing what they know are tests that won't do any good for the pets, but only will do good for the bottom line of Acacia. I feel sorry for the "employee" vets who have to follow Dr. Laudonio's philosophy on this. They probably work on salary plus commission on selling tests. No wonder they come and go.You take your pet's life in your hands when you go to this place. And you better have lots of money for unnecessary tests to boot. There are many other vets in town that are better than this one.

VCA Valley Animal Hospital and Emergency Center
Took my dog to get spayed. They never gave an estimate, called me before she went into surgery to tell me it was going to cost $523. I wouldn't have taken her there if I knew how expensive it would have been. Orange grove animal hospitals estimate was $250. I will never return, nor will I recommend them.

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!!!!!

Plaza Pet Clinic
If you are rich and can pay any amount of money to prolong your pet's life then you might be ok going here - maybe. However, if you can't afford a $5,000 surgery, you can expect Dr. Campbell to yell at you and make you feel horrible because you're not willing to go bankrupt to save your pet. When I told her we didn't have the money she literally said, "Well you're going to have to find it!" Then she proceeded to blame me for one of her mistakes. She took a fine needle asperate of our dog's tumor and then didn't send the test in. When we came for a follow up visit she hemmed and hawed as to whether she SHOULD send it in (all the while we thought she had). When she finally sent the test in it came back that it is probably cancer! She blames me that we "waited so long".On another occasion our dog had a lab test sent in about a tumor. When we called back to find out what treatment they recommended they were surprised we didn't know we were supposed to get antibiotics!
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
