My wait was brief. My dog was admitted overnight for treatment. The Vet carefully explained everything that would be involved in his care. He was ready to come home with medication the next morning. I appreciated that the bill was at the low end of the estimate !
The service they had provided me and for my dog was great. Although the wait is long, it is understood that this is a first come first serve place. I get to visit my baby boy today, and in hopes that he is alright.
It's early Sunday morning and your dog can't stop hacking and coughing. We brought our 15 year old long-haired chihuahua here to find out what we could do to help his cough, which had started a couple of days prior and didn't get better. The vet listened to us, then listened to our pet's lungs. She detected a heart murmur and some fluid in his lungs, so what we thought might be kennel cough turned out to be diagnosed as mild congestive heart failure. She took blood work, x-rays and started him on Lasix to get rid of the fluid. Naturally, because he's a chihuahua, he didn't cough once in the seven hours he was in the clinic, but about two blocks after he went into the car, he started hacking. So, we asked the vet and she gave us some cough medicine that seems to help.
These folks are good at triage and at identifying issues. But, just like an ER for humans, they get their patients patched up, but insist that you bring them to what they call a "day vet" as soon as possible to get more specialized care. The vet told us to get our guy to see a cardiologist. We'll be trying to arrange that today.
Also, just like an ER for humans, this place is not inexpensive. But they are good and when your pet needs help, they seem to be a good place to go. Our dog is not terribly good with people he doesn't know, but he was very calm and cooperative with the two people that took care of him, so that tells you that they are very good with animals.
