We needed to get our dog Willow spayed as she was just past 1 year and we are letting her out on a line in the yard now that it is spring and we take her to the Dog Park frequently. We stopped in at the SPCA on the trail and they referred us to the Animal Emergency and Referral Center of York. We did have to pay slightly more since she was 2 lbs over the 50 lb limit and she was in heat, but that is neither here nor there. We dropped her off and she was ready to be picked up in the evening, no overnight stay necessary.
They gave a small amount of medicine for her and we chose to get the Elizabethan cone so she wouldn't be licking at her incision site. Willow recoved very quickly and was mellow for a couple of days, but her overall attitude is still the same, a high energy mixed pointer puppy! I would recommend the place since they know what they are doing and I was not waiting long at all. We were notified when she was ready and I was greeted in a friendly and polite manner. If I ever needed the service to spay or neuter and animal or if there were an emergency situation (I would hope not) I would not hesitate to go here.
I had to take my beagle here at 2:30 am one morning. She had come down with severe symptoms of Lyme disease. They were completely professional and were waiting for us when we arrived. We were the only patient there at that time and received immediate treatment. The tech and Dr. O'Donnell explained the disease and treatment quite well. The initial cost for the center to see us was $75 compared to the other emergency clinic located in Mechanicsburg- they want $99 just to see the animal.
If you ever need an emergency vet, and I hope you never do, this is the place to go. The doctors, techs and staff are amazing, kind, gentle, and happy to help you in your time of need. I never knew about this place until my dog started having seizures one night. I've had to use their services 3 times and am always impressed. I should mention their services aren't cheap, but they are fully staffed 24/7, I've walked in at 9pm at night and at 3:30am and they are there waiting to help. I can't stay enough good things about them!
We recently required the services of Animal Emergency Center of York because it was a Sunday and our normal vet practice of FOUR doctors was not available. Our need was the most difficult for any pet owner not to mention our pet lived with us for fifteen and a half years. The staff was extremely kind and courteous to us. Even though it appeared to be fairly busy with people waiting in the waiting room they took us to the comfort room in short order. The staff assured us our decision was in the best interest of our pet which eased our pain. I would not hesitate to recommend them. As far as costs, when I spoke to them prior to our arrival the front desk staff stated this was an emergency clinic and the cost would be more that our normal vet. Just like in the case of going to the ER at a hospital over your family doctor, it is going to cost more. I have no complaint about their charges.
The doctors and staff answered all questions clearly. My pet and myself were treated with great respect and compassion. Every concern, no matter how small, is taken seriously. Thank you!
