  • 1. Saved our dogs!

    by: valentinex3

    We owe A-Vet a world of thanks for saving two of our dogs when they got injured. If it hadn't been for them after our vet was closed, we woudl have lost Buddy and Sadie. \r\n\r\nThey have also provided excellent care for animals we've fostered that got sick in the night. \r\n\r\nI would highly recommend them to anyone! \r\n\r\nThanks A-VET!!!!! You're #1 in our family

    Pros

    Excellent after hours care for emergencies

    Cons

    none

  • 2. Great for emergencies

    by: dhines

    I foster alot of dogs and cats and periodically one of them will act very sick, so I do not hesitate to take them to A-Vet. They have always been there when I needed them. The vets are very knowledgeable and have helped in every occasion. I also sometimes need advice over the phone so I do not hesitate to call them on the phone as well and they are ready to help that way as well. For an emergency clinic their costs are lower than others I have been to. They are local and easy to find and ready to assist. I would recommend them to anyone who has a sick or hurt pet when the other vets in town are closed.

    Pros

    great treatment

    Cons

    none

    This place is a lifesafer literally. I cannot count the people I know who have went their including myself. They have always been helpful and courteous to me and my pets. I wish they were not so expensive though.

    Pros

    Great place

  • 4. When you need them.......

    by: hmclark

    Good thing this place is there - I've had serious problems on Sat. nights, and at 3am - my pet would have not lived had this A-Vet not been in existence. I'm sure glad they are there.

  • 6. Saved My Pets Lives More Than Once

    by: DebbieKelley

    I've broken the speed limit to get to A-Vet more than once - my pets were saved each time - until I could get them to my vet when she opened in the morning. I am so thankful we have this place.

    Pros

    open when vets aren't, saves lives

    Cons

    expensive - but worth it

  • 7. Over priced

    by: iluvfancy

    Thank God I've never had to use the A vet, however.... I have inlaws that have had to in an emergency. I was told you have to pay a huge fee to to walk in the door to use this help. Thats on top of all the other fee's they tack on. I understand this is a medical facility and medicals costs are high, but when my sister inlaw told me how much they had to pay out to have their cat put down after being hit by a car, I was shocked. I thought it was way over priced for all the service they had done. Outside of that, I hear great things.

    Pros

    Hear great things

    Cons

    price

  • 8. wonderful emergency vet

    by: kodasmom

    I love this emergency vet hostpital!!! We had an emergency late one night around 11:00. My 10 year old wonderful kitty had thrown a blood clot. Right away they reconized the problem, which is farely rare. Unfortunately his lungs were filled with fluid and he was unable to move his lower half. I'm sorry to say we lost him, but the staff could not have been more caring with our family. We stayed with him 'til the end. They then placed in in a coffin shaped box for us to take home and bury. Later I received a sympathy card which really touched my heart. A BIG KUDOS TO THIS CLINIC!!!!

    Pros

    always there

    Cons

    a little more expensive

  • 9. A great place in an emergency

    by: clanger

    I have had my pets there a few times. Although I think they charge a lot, my animals have received excellent care. I would not hesitate to bring my pet to this facility if my regular vet was not available. They are compassionate and caring and do a quality job.

    Pros

    Good quality care

    Cons

    Kind of out the way as far as location

  • 10. Saving my kitty's life

    by: BZHaddad

    Less than one year ago, late at night, one of cat's started casping for her breath and we scrooped our previous DEDE up and headed for the E Vet with lights flashing on the car! I would have dared a police to stop me, but we were lucky. She was taken right in , x-rayed and had developed asthma and was having her first attack. The E VET on duty saved her life and she is a very happy kitty now with her mommy and daddy. They are wonderful and we are very fortunate to have this facility in our area when we need them. My heart goes out to dedicated people who work night shift to save animals lives.

    Pros

    They saved my kitty's life!

    Cons

    Very professional
