Ohana Pet Hospital - Dr. Kate Byrne, DVM
I cannot express enough how happy I am with my experience at Ohana Pet Hospital. Dr. Kate is the best vet I have ever taken my pet to see. She is professional, patient, kind to both me and my dog, and listens to every concern I have. You can tell that she honestly LOVES animals. She speaks kindly to my dog and always takes excellent care of her. She explains everything that she is thinking or going to do. I think of my dog as a family member and I am so happy that we found Dr. Kate! The office is always clean and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. This is an excellent place to take your animal! They will take care of you!

Buena vet
I had been taking my dog to another vet, but after this experience of stellar care and service at Buena, I will be switching to this vet clinic. The entire front desk staff acknowledged my dog while we were waiting for the doctor. She has had melt downs previously at a vet office. By the time we were leaving, six stitches on her leg later, she was wagging her tail and walking up to staff. What a blessing in disguise that the other office had no appointments available to deal with a deep gash in her leg until a day later.

Moore Veterinary Care
I took my cat, Frank, to see Dr. Moore and was very pleased with her care and customer service. Her staff was very helpful with my questions. I was shocked when they brought an estimate in, so I can decide what I can afford to do, treatment wise. Thanx to Dr. Moore Frank is doing great.

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
