Very nice and caring Staff. Only Negative! regarding the Leptospirosis Vaccine and the so called epidemic. This dangerous and vaccination contains a stage four carcinogenic that causes cancer. This vaccine also has a profound effect regarding auto immune disease ! It covers less than 10% of Leptospirosis Bacteria... Do your research on this as it may save your puppy dog from Auto Immune Disease and Cancer. We have owned 28 Rottweilers over the past 34 years. Please ask for a second opinion from your breeder.... Although Jill did have adverse effects form both shots (vomiting/diarrhea on the first shot).

Have been going here for many years and always have had great care for my animals. Dr. Horn I must mention one of your emploees, Ashley. She came in yesterday and drew blood from Thor after another tech was having difficulty. Went to the pharmacy this morning and she was their. Had a question about the Nemex. What I was given was another dosage. She explained the difference asked which I would prefer and swapped them out. Then said oh they forgot to give you the two free doses of Revoution, here ya go. Great service and with a smile!! Thanks folks

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
