Dr Kuswa is very Compassionate. Treated one of my dogs for cancer Chemo drug was half the cost of other vets around. Has a wonderful ortho MD she works with that saved my dogs life. The staff is kind and cares about your pet. The office is involved in the community too. Raising money for local police K9's, this the only Doctor treats all the Police and Sheriff K9's for the county. They raise awareness about the need for adoption and eduction on spay & nuetering, always having information and getting involved with local SPCA. Recently raising awarness to the need for K9 serving in the milatary. So started a program to send toys, mendication etc to dogs serving in Afganistan etc. My three dogs love this place.

We took my sister's dog there at midnight. The vet tech helped us get us situated, bringing her dog in as she couldn't walk. The vet gave us choices on what could be done, however, in the end she was put to rest. They have a special room for this which surprised me but it was very comforting at the time. I've had to take my two dogs there before for emergency treatment and I wouldn't hesitate to give them my business again. Vet costs are extremely expensive now days whether it's a regular vet or 24 hour on call vet.

My dog had a major ear infection. I took her to other vets and they could not clear it up. We took her to Companion and Dr Caldwell knew what to do and what kind if medicine she needed. Thank You Dr Caldwell. The staff treated her as if she was their pet.
Tips & Advices
Bring medical records and medications that your pet is taking. Also, you should bring your ID and a form of payment.
Yes, there are veterinary clinics that only deal with emergency cases. They generally take walk-ins and referrals from family vets.
Yes, emergency vets treat dental emergencies and dental trauma. Freshly fractured teeth are the main category of dental injury that vets consider an emergency.
To prevent health emergencies, experts recommend supervising one’s pets, and trying to make sure they don’t get into emergency situations. A majority of emergency vet visits happen because animals were struck by cars, bit by other animals, or ingested toxins. Otherwise, the best way to prevent emergencies is by having a go-to vet you can call with any questions, and being vigilant about potential symptoms (i.e. runny stool, or trouble walking) as they appear but before they become extremely serious.
Experts say that the conditions that necessitate an emergency veterinarian visit include collapse, seizures, inability to walk, partial paralysis, and any difficulty breathing (non-stop panting, constant coughing, hyperventilation, or elevated heart rate). Gum color is often an indicator that something is wrong--especially blue gums or very pale gums. Excessive vomiting or a distended abdomen should be considered an emergency situation. Signs of any trauma or excessive bleeding should send your pet straight to the vet. Lastly, for cat owners, urinary obstruction is fatal if not treated, and generally occurs in male cats.
