Expensive. Clearly. This clinic is NOT intended to be a primary care clinic. They are trained for emergency medicine, to get to the best possible care in the moment regardless of cost. So expect to pay for that. That said, the animal should always come first. Care, THEN cost. Clearly. I would also like to mention that Dr.Gitz had a manner which was so exceedingly kind and benevolent that while tired nurses made my boy Bogart very nervous and scared, Dr.Gitz immediately made him calm. I think Bogart was even a bit sad to see him leave. I think he liked him honestly. Dr.Gitz touched Bogart with a gentle loving hand and Bogart could tell. For me, that's all I need to know about his man as a Doctor. I would trust him with my boys if my OWN life depended on it.

My wife and I took our Shih-tzu puppy in to this place.Outrageous prices.I understand this is Emergency Vet,but when they charged us $74.26 for blood pressure measurement I think that was way to much money.Then I read where they took blood pressure by shaving above paw on lower leg in order to take blood pressure.Our pup's leg wasn't shaved at all I think they charged us for something
that wasn't even done.The Vet gave Abby an i.v ,a shot for nausea and sent charcoal home with us to give her,and the total bill came to $309.73.This was an outrageous amount for no more than they done.My wife talked to our regular Vet and told her prices we were charged and she agreed we were charged way to much money.I would never take another animal to this place,I would drive to where ever befor I would ever go back to this Emergency Vet.

Dr. Gitz was absolutely WONDERFUL! After reading the reviews, I was a little nervous about bringing my Sheltie, Lovie to the Dayton Clinic, but after being there I feel so much better.

Lovie was in a great deal of pain and had been vomiting all day, but my Vet was too busy to see me (still mad about this) but the staff at the DEVC took Lovie right back, and Dr. Gitz checked her out immediately. He immediately talked to me and told me what he thought was going on, and got x-rays and blood tests. Lovie had a tumor in her belly! Dr. Gitz told me I had to make some decisions and I decided to let her go. Dr. Gitz gave me a hug and made me feel better.

The worst part of the visit were the other people that brought in their pets. One person was complaining so loudly about the cost that I could hear her even in the exam room. The staff stayed calm, and tried to help. My question is if you can't afford a pet, why should you have it? Another person felt the staff was not friendly enough (same as some posts here) but I saw most of what went on, and nobody was rude. Busy and to the point yes, but that is what I want from an Emergency Clinic!!! Frankly, I feel sorry for the staff having to deal with dying pets and mean owners.

Dr. Gitz was an absolute nightmare for us. Showed no compassion for us or our dog (who was very sick as a result of our 1st time owner stupidity). Gitz repeatedly referred to her as "dog"', not once using her name. Explained options to us in clinical terms, gave no opinion on treatment or long term considerations, just worked up an estimate of our bill and left us to make a decision. I will drive to the ends of the earth before we go back to Gitz.

In the last 30 plus years that I have lived in Dayton I have had to visit the emergency clinic on Dryden Rd. several times for my cats and dogs. I have always appreciated them being there when me and my pets needed them. They are easy to get to and open in the middle of the night and on every holiday and weekends. I know that they are more expensive than our regular vet but I also know that the staff are there when most people are not working. I have read some of the other reviews and am surprised that people that complain about price are not thankful that this clinic is here in Dayton to see their pet. I am willing to pay what is needed when my pets are sick whether or not it is late at night or on a holiday. I am thankful that the folks on Dryden Rd. are there!

I have had two experiences with the DEVC. The first time was this past summer. The pointed, and not very pleasant, vet highly suspected that our puppy had parvo but did not offer to do the $10.00 fecal test. Instead, she offered to do expensive x-rays and medication upward of $500.00. Our vet saw him the next day and fought long and hard to save our puppy's life. Sadly, we lost him early in the morning, less than 36 hours after going to DEVC. Those 36 hours could have made a difference.

I was appalled that the money seemed to take a higher priority than actually treating the correct problem. I swore then I would never be back.

Forward to now. Our new 12 week old puppy had a bad allergic reaction to his vaccinations. His poor face, eyes, ears, mouth, neck and shoulders all swelled up making it very hard for him to see or close his mouth. We had no choice but to make that dreaded trip to DEVC. The vet told us that is was highly unlikely, but given the fact that his sister had a seizure the previous day, minutes after the vaccination, we were highly suspect of this being related.

They took him back and started treatment before we even finished signing the paperwork. The vet was very nice and pleasant and did a great job treating our little man. At no time were any fees/estimates discussed. When they brought him out to us, we were slapped the sticker shock! The treatment consisted of three shots; 1 epi, $2.93, 1 cortizone, $2.93 and one benadryl, $2.93 and an office visit of $85.00. All this, was reasonable. The unreasonable part was the $28.00 each to administer the shots. Yes, that is correct $84.00 just to give 3 the shots. The grand total was $174.73

My husband and I were very upset that they did not discuss the cost before hand as they did during the first visit. When questioned as to why we were not talked to regarding this matter, we were told that they only talk to us when the fees are excessive. Frankly, that was excessive. We spent only $85.00 on four puppies getting vaccinations at our vet; he received 3 shots and the cost was more than double. When we explained we did not have the entire amount, we were asked if we could call a friend with a credit card to pay the remaining SMALL balance. No offer was made to let us pay the next day, even when we asked. Instead, my husband had to stay while I drove myself and the pup home, so I could raid my change jar for the remaining balance. I only wish I had paid them in pennies and not quarters.

Needless, to say, we will not be going back to EDVC nor do we recommend their services to anyone. They are all about fees and not necessarily the care of the animal. I would rather drive to Cincinnati.

My dog was just recently attacked by a neighbor's dog. He didn't stand a chance. The other dog (who outweighed my dog by 40-50 lbs) bit him repeatedly on the neck and severed his jugular.

My neighbor helped put pressure on the wound while his wife tried to find an emergency vet clinic open on the holiday. She phoned a number of clinics--only to find they were closed for Labor Day weekend...and then she found DEVC, which is open on weekends and holidays. We drove my dog there immediately and he was operated on immediately. If it weren't for DEVC, my dog wouldn't have survived. We're lucky he survived at all...

I was given a cost estimate beforehand and was only required to pay a downpayment, which I was able to put on my VISA. They provide an outstanding service and I am just grateful that they do. They showed me the cost estimate before they did anything, and it was up to me whether it was worth it. In my case, with my dog, it was. It's not like I have pet insurance. I understand that surgery and medicine is not cheap.

The clinic told me I could call them at any time, day or night, to get a status update. I ended up calling them 5 times and they were courteous and understanding every time.

Most appreciative, DEVC. Thanks for saving my friend.

It was Sunday 4/19/09. I brought my Great Dane Sammy there because it appeared he was having a seizure. They took him in a room. Vet called me in. She wasn't friendly at all. I came out and the receptionist gave me an outlined estimate. I knew it was going to be expensive. When I told the receptionist and the Vet that all I have is $300.00 in my checking account, you should of seen her face. I told them they would get paid in full the next day. I received a refund for $30 dollars in the mail from them the other day. I plan on returning it to them on behalf of Sammy. I want them to use it on some poor unfortunate person and their beloved pet. Put the money towards their bill. Also, the next time you are treating an animal, try to remember they are a part of some ones family. They are not only an invoice. Remember why you became a Veterinarian. Oh- and by the way, you were paid in full...for all services the next day like I said you would be.

Our 15 year old Cornish Rex was the most lovable, loyal cat anyone could ever hope to have. Her name was Orchid and she was given to us 9 years ago, almost to the day. Orchid started having seizures at 2:30 AM on Sunday morning. We held her, helped her through the seizures and loved her as we always had. I don't know when I have cried so long, so hard and been so heartbroken in my life. At 8:30 am I decided - with much reluctance because I KNEW what was going to happen to my precious kitty - we called the Dayton Emergency Veterinary Hospital and were told to bring her in for an exam. It didn't take them long to determine that Orchid should be put down. We saw the most wonderful, caring people at this center - from the receptionist to the technician to the Vet - Dr. Brooks. They were SO sympathetic and caring! It was a terrible thing to decide, but they made us feel better about the decision we already knew we had to make. I've seen reviews about cost. These people spend nights, weekends and holidays helping US and our beloved pets!!! What could we possibly expect??? I was SO impressed by the entire experience - I am so grateful that the people at the animal hospital are there when we need them.

We've been her twice and had great (if sad) experiences. The first time was Easter a few years ago when our dog couldn't walk. The doctor explained he had an inflamed disc in his back and told us how to care for him. He explained everything in a way we could understand.

Tonight (Thanksgiving) we took our jaundiced cat. The doctor we saw was absolutely excellent. He was very compassionate, but did not beat around the bush. He explained everything, explained our options and answered all of our question. Our sweet Aragorn ended up having Feline Leukemia, was in very bad shape and we had to have him euthanized. Everyone there was very sympathetic and compassionate and the doctor made us as comfortable as he possibly could.

Yes, it cost us a lot of money both times, but it was expected as these people were working on holidays to take care of people's pets when they could be home celebrating with their families. Everyone we've met there truly has a heart for animals and we truly appreciate them being there when no other doctor was.

I have never gotten a card of condolence for a pet until today. That's why I'm writing this review with a calm heart but tears in my eyes.

A year ago a female cat with a broken tail showed up and birthed five kittens in one of our sheds. All but one of the kittens survived. We took to calling the mother Droopsilla because of the way her tail just hung behind her. This spring she showed up again and, on the Saturday before Mothers' Day, she went into labor in the same shed and birthed two live kittens. Because of the other cats & animals in the area we brought her inside. We found her the next morning in a pool of blood with a very large dead kitten next to her. We took her to Dr. Gitz's clinic and they took her in immediately. She was in shock by the time we pulled in the parking lot. Dr. Gitz took the time to explain her very bad situation ?? that she was dying ?? and my wife & I decided on euthanasia. Dr. Gitz checked the two live kittens and gave us recommendations on keeping them going on our own.

Droopsilla died on Mothers' Day.

Yes, it was an expensive visit. Being able to talk with the doctor himself and get his opinion in person was worth more to me than money. That the cat was a opportunistic visitor mattered little to us. That we were able to make an informed decision meant more. And today, when I got home from work I found a sympathy card in the mail signed by Dr. Gitz and his staff. I burst into tears. Our loss meant something to the folks who were there when we needed help.

When people take the responsibility to have pets they must accept the responsibility of their care. When the pet dies under circumstances such as this, it is important to know that the pet has a meaning to someone beyond the so-called owners. Faced with a situation like this again, I would have no reservations about taking the animal to the Dayton Emergency Veterinary Clinic. They are good people with caring hearts.

I have never gotten a card of condolence for a pet until today. That's why I'm writing this review with a calm heart but tears in my eyes.

A year ago a female cat with a broken tail showed up and birthed five kittens in one of our sheds. All but one of the kittens survived. We took to calling the mother Droopsilla because of the way her tail just hung behind her. This spring she showed up again and, on the Saturday before Mothers' Day, she went into labor in the same shed and birthed two live kittens. Because of the other cats & animals in the area we brought her inside. We found her the next morning in a pool of blood with a very large dead kitten next to her. We took her to Dr. Gitz's clinic and they took her in immediately. She was in shock by the time we pulled in the parking lot. Dr. Gitz took the time to explain her very bad situation ?? that she was dying ?? and my wife & I decided on euthanasia. Dr. Gitz checked the two live kittens and gave us recommendations on keeping them going on our own.

Droopsilla died on Mothers' Day.

Yes, it was an expensive visit. Being able to talk with the doctor himself and get his opinion in person was worth more to me than money. That the cat was a opportunistic visitor mattered little to us. That we were able to make an informed decision meant more. And today, when I got home from work I found a sympathy card in the mail signed by Dr. Gitz and his staff. I burst into tears. Our loss meant something to the folks who were there when we needed help.

When people take the responsibility to have pets they must accept the responsibility of their care. When the pet dies under circumstances such as this, it is important to know that the pet has a meaning to someone beyond the so-called owners. Faced with a situation like this again, I would have no reservations about taking the animal to the Dayton Emergency Veterinary Clinic. They are good people with caring hearts.

I have a small dog that was injured and needed stitches during the late evening. I took her here because they were the only place open. They wanted almost $500 to give my dog stitches. I have heard from other people that they have been given the same expensive prices from this clinic. I would recommend that if your emergency can wait until the morning, wait and see your regular veterinarian.

PROS:
CONS: too expensive

I have 2 dogs, a 6 month old Chihuahua and a 9 year old Great Dane. One night I noticed a large lump on my Great Dane's side. I was worried because it was just all of a sudden there and she was just not acting herself. Since she is conidered very old for a Great Dane I tried calling the vet right away. It was after hours and the recording said for emergancies to call and/or go to the Dayton Emergancy Veterinary Clinic. I called, but of course without actually seeing her they could not tell me anything over the phone. I decided to just take her in rather then waiting until morning to see my regualr vet. They were super. They were helpful and totally understood my fears with her age. It turned out to be a spider bit and they gave me some medicine to help her. I was so impressed with how they were and how they help put my fears at ease. The bill was not to bad for being an after hours situation and I left felling better and was able to sleep without worring about my dog.
