Westside Animal Clinic
Very disappointing. I have been there with my cats several more. They are expensive and unprofessional. I had a shouting bout with one of the vets (?) because I had to wait an eternity while they were xraying my cat. Although, by their own admission there was nothing untoward on the film, they decided to take another xray, with similar results, no doubt to pad the bill. I went to them because my cat had a lot of matting on his back. I left $350. lighter, with mats intact. Quoth the raven...

Worcester Cat Hospital & Bird Clinic
I've had two guinea pigs and 3 hamsters as patients at the Cat and Bird Hospital over the past 6 years and I absolutely have always been happy here. Dr.O'Learly is very knowledgeable and compassionate. The staff is always very kind and courteous and returns phone calls right away. My hamster recently had surgery and had a wonderful outcome. I highly recommend coming here.

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
