Animal Emergency Clinic
The day before Memorial Day, I had to take my baby Timber (14 yr old yellow lab) into the vet. He had a collasped wind pipe, and couldn't breathe. We were waited on right away, and about every 10-15 min the vet came in to give me an update on Timber. The staff and vets are were very professional, kind, caring, and just over all great!. They left me know that he would have to spend the night but I could stay as long as I wanted, and if I decided to go home, that I could call as often as I wanted to get an update. Even my own vet (which is great) wouldn't have offered all of that. They took great care of my baby. Everyone that works there always treated me and Timber like we were family. Unfortunately god wanted my Timber with him. The staff did everything they could possibly do and I take comfort in knowing that, and knowing how much they care. I would recommend Queen St Vet to anyone.

Yorkshire Animal Hospital
I can't say enough about Yorkshire Animal Hospital. I have been going there for many years. First with Dr.Harold Neibert and now with his daughter Dr. Cindy. She is never to busy to talk with you or call to update me if one of my dogs is in the hospital. The staff is very friendly and professional and my Bill is always reasonable, far below what other Vets charge around this area. If you are looking for a compassionate Vet to take care of your pets Yorkshire Hospital is where you want to go.

Community Animal Hospital
What I like most overall about Community Animal Hospital is that they are very efficient. They are honest and tell you only what is needed to give the best care for your pets. I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family.

I have two dogs and have been taking them to CAH for a couple years now. We wait no more than two or three minutes before being attended to during appointments. I wish my doctor was like that. Love the staff.

Both of the receptionists here are really great, as well as the techs. I've told Dr. Sloat that I don't trust anyone with my animals but him, and that's the truth.

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
