Arbor View Animal Hospital
I came from out of county and was very nervous about switching vets. I've now been a client for over 10 years and couldn't be happier. The doctors, techs, reception, and all support staff treat my girls like they are just as important to them as they are to me. I was also ecstatic that they aren't breed prejudiced. I've run into some vets that refuse to treat my girls because they are pitbulls, Arborview has never discriminated and treat them as the loving pets they are. We also recently had a major orthopaedic issue with one. We were directed to the most appropriate care, they follow up continuously, and have been there for all questions. Thank you Arborview, all of my family (two or four legs) appreciate each of you!

Jennifer and Jason are fantastic! I had to board Charlie and he received the best care and attention. I received daily updates and pictures on how he was doing. Simply a great place to board your fur baby!!
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
