Patrick D Jarrett DVM
As a new puppy owner with a sick puppy, I was that person that was googling everything. The first time I went to Dr. Jarrett, I knew that our 2.5 pound puppy was very sick. Right when I walked in, the secretary walked out from behind the desk and asked if she could hold him, and then she held him while I filled out the paper work. When Dr. Jarrett came in. he sat and listened to me ask question after question, looked at all the paper work I had from the breeder, and then he calmed me down and started to tell me what was wrong with him and how we would go about fixing it. He helped and played with our puppy the whole time he was talking and telling me the game plan. My husband wasn’t with me, so I was sitting there crying by myself, but Dr. Jarrett did a wonderful job of telling me the truth but also that it would be ok. When I got ready to leave, the vet tech and staff played with our puppy while I kept asking questions. One thing that really meant a lot to me is that, as I was leaving, Dr. Jarrett came back out and told me that communication between the two of us was the key and "any question. at any time, call and ask!" We had to bring our puppy in almost every other week for about a month, and in that time, the staff answered all my questions every time I would call.The next time I came in, the staff did the same thing and came right back out to hold and play with him. Dr. Jarrett answered all my crazy and ongoing questions. He even called after the office was closed to tell me that he thought of something else we should do and how to change it up.We have had a long road to get our little guy well, and the staff and Dr. Jarrett have been beyond wonderful and helpful and answered every silly question I have. I drive 45 min to take our puppy to Dr. Jarrett, and I would do it any day of the week! I am so thankful and happy that I found a wonderful vet and staff to help get our puppy back to 100%. I always know that when I go and see them that they are going to love on our little guy, answer any questions I have, and even hand me a tissue when I start to cry. They always give me more information then what I came in with, and I would recommend Dr. Jarrett to everybody, any and every day of the week!

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
