My sweet little dog got into a bottle of my multivitiams I called just about every vet around and not knowing if she would be okay they all suggested me to call poison control, at first I refuse because of the fee they charge but my little girl means everything to me so I went ahead and called. They told me I needed to take her to the vet due to all the iron in those vitamins, so I called Airport Pet Emergency Clinic and told them I would be bringing her in, and it wasnt too far from my house! When I got there I automatically felt welcomed, the staff was amazing. The only thing I could complain about was the wait time. Once the nurse got in the room she made me feel completely at ease. They told me they were going to write up an estimate and bring it to me m, after they explained what they were going to do. They wouldn't charge me anything unless I signed off on it, which was fantastic! Because most places go ahead and do it and not let you know how much it will be until you are getting ready to pay. THEY WERE AMAZING! If I have any further trouble with my little husky I will definitely take her there!
They were really kind but won't be going back 'cus they're too far from where we live.
We had 4 kittens + mom who we took in. 1 kitten was sick & having terrible vomiting and diarrhea. They did some tests & gave some meds - total $227. They gave some meds for free to us. And they didn't try to sell us any food.
Kitten still vomits 2 days later, and he's skinnier than the others. Tomorrow, we'll take him to a closer vet. Hopefully it's cheaper.
What do you want in an Emergency Vet? – Can you compare an emergency vet clinic apples to apples with your local vet's office? Well, no... not really.
Can you compare an emergency vet clinic with a local hospital's ER? Well, that's probably closer but not quite right either.
When you walk into an emergency vet you immediately have to acknowledge a few things... one, your pet is seriously ill. Why because it's too pricey to step in there for anything less. Second, even if you are wrong and your pet isn't seriously ill, you are upset, worried, anxious, etc. that your pet is.
Now the staff has to deal with both of those REAL challenges while assessing your pet's condition. Do they have a history on the pet? Generally, no. If the Emergency Vet is open then that means other vet clinics usually aren't so they can't call your regular vet for your pet's information. As a result, guess what..? YOU are the only source of information they have other than what they can determine from your pet him/herself.
With all that said, I found the Airport Pet Emergency Clinic to be everything I would want when faced with a trauma... and let me assure you, it is. They were professional but warm. The facilities were spotless. The staff questioned me extensively both techs and doctor, and allowed me the time to regain my composure when I would fall apart. During the time my pet was there they welcomed my calls checking on her and fielded other questions I had about her care, condition, etc.
Yes, you are going to pay ER rates. If that intimidates you I'd suggest you look into pet health insurance (it's available) because when your pet is that ill you want to have an option and I can assure you, a visit to the Airport Pet Emergency Clinic is CHEAP next to an ER visit for a person and yet, we expect them to offer remarkably similar services!
blountville airport emergency clinic – I took my small dog to them bleeding from the nose and sneezing profusly, they charged me 300 dollars for the tech to take his temp and a antibiotic shot, and told me to bring him back tomorrow night if no better. i took him back they collected another 400 dollars said they would do a scope to see if he had anything in his nose or throat...he was put under anaesthesia the vet never came out to talk to me prior to the procedure, afterwards he came out said he didnt see any foriegn bodies and did not look at the throat..my dog got worse I took him to UT animal hospital who also scoped him and found a twig in his nose......700 dollars spent here (on a credit card) and they done nothing to help him even told me they couldnt see any foriegn bodies in his nose..he suffered for a week because of this,,, I dont have a lot of faith in this place It appears its all about money and no real concern for your pet
