I mistook this for the emergency vet hospital and the vet called me back, she accused me of lying about being a patient. I explained I went to the emergency vet on Oakes st. 5 years ago she said I don't have a record of you and hung up on me.

Victor Schultze, practicing emergency veterinarian at Southside Emergency Animal Hospital. Our kitty was hit by a car Sunday, July 16 2017 on the corner of Ave J and South Monroe st in Santa Rita. Do not expect emergency care without credit card or cash! My kitty had a broken jaw twisted out of place. He was in horrific pain and no one would do anything, till i went home and got my purse
These people are the absolute best and have such sweet souls. They took such great care of my diesel. From the beginning when he had a heat stroke and parvo all at once as a puppy, him swallowing my son's paci and doing surgery to putting him down when there was nothing else we could do. I would recommend this place to ANYONE looking for people who will care for your pets as if they were their own. Losing my Diesel was the hardest thing I had had to go through in a long while..besides their sweet hearts while I was in saying goodbye, they also sent love my way through a loving letter apologizing for the great loss I had just encountered, and today I received his ashes in a bag with tissue paper and all, including a card with his paw print, a sweet memorial laminated paper, and a white rose with the meaning behind it all. (all but the ashes were sent without request) I will never complain about traveling an hour just for a vets visit when it is to see these amazing people.
Very friendly and knowledgeable staff at both location. Small and large animals it doesn't mater to these folks. They are aways will and ready to help. Thank you Stevens your the best!

Southside clinic are you freaking kidding me never ever take an animal here. 1 these people are freaking nuts. 2. We walk in and they say 100 visit ok no problem. Our dog was rag over okay they muzzle him and poke and move him constantly saying nothing seems out of place didn't do a xray our dog is screaming and the vet just keeps saying stop stop I stood there literally with my jaw dropped. A shot later still nothing no answer no test just poking him. She brings us a bill $193 the shot was 53 okay so why an extra 40 so we ask the dumb little girl say oh well the price went up um okay why. The time changed I said so why didn't you tell us she says I didn't think it would matter your dog got hit by a car I said seriously yall did nothing no xray no nothing and your time changed so the price goes up she says well do you want an xray I said not effing now are you kidding me. Point of story they crack they where all smoking must have been the reason they thought poking and pulling on an injury dog was funny.
At first I thought this place was good when my pup was only coming in for shots. But once he broke his leg, I realized this place was terrible. They couldn't seem to get his leg bandaged up right without cutting off circulation to his toes and having the bandage rub his thigh so raw to where we were fighting to not get an infection. They kept taking our money and would blame my pup for licking his leg. I do not suggest this place to anyone who needs anything serious done to their dog.
The staff at Arden Animal Clinic are simply top-notch. Great people, they treat my dog as if he was their own.
Dr. Dutton and the rest of the staff are excellent at handling my animals. I highly recommend them!
The staff is very friendly. I could not be happier with the quality of care that my dog gets. They are simply the best in the area!
Dr. Dutton always makes sure that I understand everything before letting me and my dog leave. He always goes way above and beyond what I expect of him, it is truly great service.
Choosing the right vet for your pet can be tough. After all, your furry friend can't tell you how he or she feels about the doctor. Even though you're not the one treated by the vet, whoever your animal sees is obviously your decision. Since many veterinary diseases and injuries can turn into emergencies very quickly, it's important to have a go-to vet. This way, you can ensure you'll know whom to see when your animal needs care.
Speak to your friends and family about vets who've treated their pets. You can even talk to your groomer or an animal shelter worker for referrals. When you visit the clinics you've been referred to, check that the facility is clean, animals are separated and the staff is calm and courteous. Not all clinics are American Animal Hospital Association accredited. This accreditation isn't a legal necessity, though a clinic that's AAHA-accredited is guaranteed to offer high-quality medical care. To receive accreditation, the clinic has to meet the AAHA's standards in the areas of facility, equipment and quality care.
If you're looking for a specialist, you want to make sure he or she is board-certified to practice in that specific area of animal medicine. You'll want to make sure your vet is also convenient to visit, so there are factors to take into account.
The type of animal you own should play a part in which vet you choose as well. While your options are vast if you have a dog or cat, you may have to visit an avian clinic for your bird or an exotics clinic for your snake.
Just as there are many types of doctors, there are many types of vets. Some focus on livestock or house pets, while others may specialize in dentistry or surgery. They may work in a veterinary clinic or zoo, working specifically with the animals housed there, or travel to farms to work with livestock. Since horse racing and other equestrian activities are so popular, some vets are trained to work just with horses.
Diseases, like malaria and yellow fever are also transmitted through animals. Some vets have insight to diseases that affect both humans and animals. Vets have contributed to the treatment and cure of many diseases that plagued both humans and their furry friends.
Government agencies employ veterinarians as well. When an animal comes from a foreign land, these vets quarantine them and check for any diseases that may be present in an effort to control new diseases that can be brought into the country. Other Specific types of vets include:
A vet assistant works alongside the veterinarian and helps out around the clinic. In some cases, they may assist vets in surgery or restrain struggling animals during tests or lab work. The everyday duties of a veterinary assistant include; monitoring and caring for animals after surgery, keeping medical records, cleaning animals' teeth, feeding and bathing them, cleaning cages, sterilizing surgical equipment, giving animals medication, collecting samples for testing and performing laboratory tests, and offering grief counseling to pet owners.
It's a good idea to bring your pet to the vet regularly. This way, he or she becomes familiar and comfortable with the care providers, and you can stay on top of your pet's preventative care. If the animal is small enough, bring it to the office in a carrier. Just as you visit the doctor for a yearly check up, you should bring in your pet for regular check ups as well. During a routine veterinary visit, the vet will probably begin by asking you if there have been any changes in your pet's behavior or habits.
The vet will then take your pet's vitals, like weight, temperature, pulse and respiration rate, and perform a physical examination of the pet. During a physical exam, the vet checks the abdomen for swollen organs, and the legs, feet and joints for any potential problems. Depending on the age, breed or condition of your pet, your veterinarian may also check the eyes, ears and mouth.
When your vet conducts a full body examination, he or she will check out your pet's coat and skin, noting any hair loss, itchy spots or lumps. Keep note of your animal's shedding habits so you can let the vet know if anything seems abnormal. The vet will check for parasites, fleas, ticks, mites and heartworms as well.
Vaccinations are also important to your pet, especially if you have a cat or a dog, and your vet will suggest that you make sure they're current. Keeping up to date with vaccinations can prevent your furry friend from getting distemper, rabies, hepatitis and lyme disease. Some vaccinations last longer than others, so speak to your doctor about staying caught up with your animal's shots.
Just like your own health insurance, you want to make sure your animal is covered before he or she needs veterinary services. Some common animal surgeries can cost thousands of dollars, and you don't want to end up having to foot a surprise bill that costs more than your paycheck.
There's no set price for pet health insurance. Costs can depend on factors such as where you live, the age and breed of your pet, and how much coverage you want. Before you take out a pet insurance policy, you'll want to meet with your vet to go over what he or she thinks your animal should be covered for. Many vets believe that you should make sure cancer, chronic disease, hereditary and congenital disease, and common breed-related medical conditions are all addressed in your policy.
Some pet owners can't afford insurance for their pet, so there are other options to make paying for surprise pet visits as easy as possible. Some pet stores have wellness plans - which tend to be much cheaper than an insurance policy - that offer shots, check ups, screenings and discounts on various procedures your pet may need. A lot of veterinary offices offer payment plans for pricey procedures as well, as long as you have decent credit history. For a last-ditch option, there are even privately funded organizations that offer pet owners financial aid for their pet's treatments.
