Cooper Veterinary Hospital
I am so thankful for Cooper Veterinary Hospital! I just had to be faced with the most unbearable task of having my boxer (my baby) put to sleep. The day I went in I was told that my boxers doctor (Dr. Malta) was booked up, but the front desk person assured me Dr. Malta would still see us in between patients. From the moment, I entered the clinic I was immediately escorted back. From the front desk person, clinic office manager ,Jo Linda, Dr. Malta and Jessica I was treated with such kindness as if this was their pet. I do not hesitate to refer patients to Cooper Veterinary Hospital. Oh, I might add I travel out of town for their service!

Cooper Veterinary Hospital
After using this business for almost 2 years, I've had enough. Recently took one of my cats there with an emergency & was made to wait so long in waiting room, & after 2 employees triaged the cat (with no help other than ask all the same questions), my cat died while in exam room waiting for the vet. Then Dr. Cooper made light of the cat's death, ending with, "Don't worry, I'm not gonna' charge you, since your cat died." I suggest you go anywhere else, I won't be back!
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
