Only as absolute last resort by
They are quick and convenient and you will pay out the nose for that. Our dog was not feeling good and diagnosed with pneumonia and told he would recover. All in all he was examined, given 4 xrays and meds for 1 week (he would need an additional 5 weeks after that). Bill came to $850-- yikes, almost crapped in my pants. To make things worse it didn't make a bit of difference. 11 hours later our beloved dog was dead. Then they called and told us he had bronchitis. I would only go here if it was the last resort and even at that you need to use caution.
Very happy withe there service . by

Someone had dumped a kitten and her dead mother in my garbage can. The kitten was very small and it was very hot so I took her to the clinic to make sure she was not in distress. They were very helpful. They checked her temp, weight and heart and fortunately all was good . She had fleas and was too young for most treatments. they recommended a primary care vet to get her a "new kitten" check-up and vaccinations . They did not charge for the call . I think the circumstances of the kittens situation touched them. I am going to keep her.
pet ownership comes with responsibility by
It saddens me to read reviews that are often posted of ANY veterinary emergency hospital. Whether in New York, Alabama, Washington or Michigan, there is a resounding theme...people are angry at the individuals of the profression because of their own financial limitations. In this country, veterinary care is not a free service...just as medical care for ourselves is not intended to be a free service either. It is wrong to blame the health care professional for the development of an illness, injury, syndrome or disorder of any pet that enters through the door. What people may need to realize is that if no one paid for the service, it would cease to exist as it has no government support and veterinary medicine utilizes the same equipment, techniques and medical knowledge of human medicine...without the inflated costs. If you want to complain to someone about the cost of veterinary medicine, write to your congressman or congresswoman and ask for socialistic medicine. Or, consider not
His Tears by
My dog died on their table due to the inability to pay up front 1000+$. That didn't even include the treatment! The Vet who seen my dog walked in and pronounced him dead, Even tho he was crying for help, even tho I was crying for help. No! They wouldn't help him at all till we payed. Myself and my daughter cryed and pleaded to please let us make payment arrangments. No! My daughter no longer wants to be a Vet. I lost my baby boy becasue I couldn't pay for a serveice that would have saved his life. My constructive criticism to Pet Emergancy is this;Please be more reciptive of some peoples inability to pay due to fixed incomes. People who don't have money should be warned about going to pet emergancy. Payment plans for low income families would be a great thing to consider for people who love their pets like their children. In the end they accepet my 160$ to put him to sleep. I lost my bestfriend. I lost my Son. I lost the best thing in my life. In loving memories of my Hade'Bug...
