My 3lb Chihuahua (Charlie) was having severe breathing problems and was diagnosed with congestive heart failure by another vet. They started him on heart meds. He started improving except he was very lethargic and off balance. They thought it was neurological. I took him to OVS because they were supposed to be the best. Dr. Nester didn’t seem caring at all. He wanted to do an echocardiogram even though the other vet did one the week before. We agreed because we just wanted to do what ever we could to help Charlie. They told me he did NOT have heart disease and for me to take him off the heart medications. Nester said the echo ruled out heart disease but he still didn’t know what was causing the breathing problems, balance, and lethargy issues. They said the reason for him being off balance was a bulging disc in his neck. They prescribed Prednisolone and said he should start improving soon. After a few days his walking was improving a little. So things were looking up. Then all of a sudden his breathing problem came back a week after being off the heart meds. I took him back to OVS the same day. They wanted to run more tests. At this point he’s already had two sets of x-rays, CT Scan, 2 echocardiograms, and a spinal tap. What was left to do?? They wanted to do MORE x-rays with contrast, so we did it. Again, it was negative. I was there for 6 hours that day. That evening Charlie went into cardiac arrest and died. I spent $2900 on tests for Charlie with everything coming back negative but yet Charlie didn’t make it and they can’t tell me what was wrong. I took him off the heart meds like they told me to do and the breathing problem came back within a week. Now I’m left to wonder if I hadn’t stopped the heart meds would Charlie still be here. I feel like I let Charlie down by going to OVS. I took Charlie to OVS because I thought He was getting the best care. However, it was the absolute worst advice and care he could have ever received.

Great, caring, professional staff. We called enroute and they were ready and waiting. Bloat sucks! I would rush there again in an emergency, but really hope to never need them again.

I think I've been using Cedarwood for at least three decades. Drs. Poteet and Sales are such caring and dedicated people, along with their staff. Since October, 2016, they have been helping me care for my bully mix, Diamond, my rescue from a northside neighborhood. Diamond and my other two pit bulls had problems adjusting off and on. Right before Thanksgiving Diamond ended up getting her legs badly damaged in a fight (with my other getting some facial damage). The damage was so bad I honestly thought she was going to lose one of her legs. Cedarwood took such great care of her (and me) and she was with them for about two months. She has full mobility and energy once again and also both her front legs. The ladies that work at Cedarwood have been supportive and understanding, all giving me valuable advice. Though I wasn't able to find another adoptive home for her, I now am armed with plenty of information and a new way of working my home situation. These people work so hard every day with lots of clients. Of the two months I had been going by to see Diamond, I think there was only one morning of quiet. Everyone here deserves kudos!

I have been using Cedarwood for about 25yrs. Starting when the office was still on 11th street in a small strip mall called Cedarwood. Have never used another vet since then. They are fantastic! Caring, compassionate but professional. They have taken wonderful care of our many animals over the years. Because I help with animal rescue I have been to a few other vets over time for that purpose. Have never found any of them to be anything other caring & generous but in my book you can't beat Dr Poteet & Dr Wendy. When a puppy we got was found to have distemper, we were crushed thinking he would have to be put to sleep. But I decided to try to nurse him through it, so they supported my decision & were there when I needed help. Dr Wendy went as far as bringing a neubulizer to our house so I could use it for him! Can't beat that. And by the way, he made it! He is now a somewhat cranky old man at 11! Lol I named him Eli b/c of a discussion I had with Dr Wendy. She had a little girl named Ellie & was pregnant with a son & she liked the name Eli but thought it was too close to Ellie's name. So Eli became Eli. I thank them for everything they do!

We've been going to Cedarwood for years. They are, without a doubt, the most compassionate and caring people you could ever hope to know. The entire staff is top notch.

Amazing vets who truly care about their clients- the pets and their human owners. Their hours are great; they are open 7 days a week and stay open late. This means I don't have to take off work to take my dogs to the vet. Dr. Henshaw, Dr. Musgrove, and Dr. Beakman are all wonderful. I've taken all of my dogs there for the last 6 years and will always take them there. They will work with you on treatment plans and options if you just let them know what you can afford. I think you still have to be realistic and know that good service doesn't come free and it shouldn't be expected based on the high level of care they provide at the clinic.

Marina Animal Clinic
I have been with Marina since about April 2011. I had a brand new girl puppy given to me by strangers who told me she was up to date with her shots. She was my first fur baby I'd ever owned. About six weeks later she came down with parvo and I was told by several people I might as well have her put to sleep cause most puppies don't pull through that horrible desease. Someone recomended I try Marina first to see if they could help her. They confirmed she had parvo and said we could try daily injections of a good amount of fluid containing an antibiotic and an anti-nausea medicine. I took her in to their office every morning at 8:00am. On the 4th day she woke me up wagging her tail and showing me the first signs of making it through this. I've been taking my baby girl to Marina Animal Hospital ever since and she has gotten ALL her shots on time every year. I can never thank Marina enough for saving my precious baby girl. I'll never, ever trust anyone but Marina. They're the VERY BEST! Ramona & Nana.

Eight days after Dr. Nestor told me, after CT scans and biopsies etc. that he concluded nothing major wrong with my dog, my dog died at home. Three days before I had taken him in to OVS with uncontrollable bleeding. Monday I had Xrays that showed fluid around heart and something in lungs, but OVS could not manage to get him until two days later, despite the alarming signs, so my dog suffered at home and died 15 minutes before the OVS appointment. In all this time, I never got a phone call to see how my dog was doing and have consulted with over vets who told us that it was an absolutely casual attitude, and my dog needed emergency attention. My OVS vet FAILED me, telling me their was nothing major wrong with my dog, taking thousands of my dollars without showing proper concern for my dog or me.

Both Dr. Poteet and Dr. Wendy go the extra mile to help your pet. I have had Dr. Poteet and Dr. Wendy as my family vets for more than a decade, ever since i've moved in the neighborhood.
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
