We went to the emergency clinic on a Sunday.

I agree with the previous poster that the prices are high. It is $110 for the office visit and it was about $180 for blood tests and our dog needed an antibiotic and fluids and it ended up being just under $500 for the visit. I am happy to pay it, and can, but it would be hard if you don't have that kind of money to spend. That said, the whole staff (Doctor, technician, front desk, etc) was very professional, competent and understanding. Both the doctor and the technician took all the time I needed to answer all my questions.

It is true that they prescribe things that might not be absolutely necessary (maybe good ideas, but not absolutely necessary if you can't afford it or don't want it). I didn't realize completely that they were going to give my dog subcutaneous fluids and had I thought about it, I would have said 'no' to that since he was not really dehydrated and didn't have bad diarrhea and it hurt him to have it done and scared him and I didn't want that. I told them no to keeping him overnight to get fluid drips but didn't realize they thought I was saying yes to the subcutaneous fluids before we left. I would suggest carefully considering each thing they suggest and only doing what you feel is critical until you can get to your regular vet.

But I really feel that they do the best they can and are very competent at it and I would not hesitate to take him back again if need be. I always worry if I have to take a pet in an emergency to a vet I don't know, but I feel they are good vets and can handle the emergencies and that is what we need in an emergency situation. We are lucky that they are available at all, much less be actually decent vets.

Be ready for sticker shock. Technically competent staff with acceptable people skills. As a referral practice with specialty and surgical care, good to have in town. As an emergency clinic, they've watched too many ER episodes. My personal preference is palliative care for myself and my dogs. I may be a cruel insensitive brute, but my animals agree that I won't force them to live impaired and they won't force me. Not always subtle pressure for more services,
