Question Answered! I'm going to try ...

I'm going to try to explain this as best I can without confusing anyone. My cat keeps opening/closing his mouth like he's eating...but he's not...there's also a little bit of thickish saliva? Coming from his mouth also. Tries to eat and drink..but cant..or not very well anyway. Other than that he's still his playful,purring, cuddly self. Any ideas? I want to bring him in but I'm not sure how your after hours prices differ from regular hour prices.

That one would be difficult to figure out without seeing your cat. Cats are amazing as in they can be very, very sick before they start showing symptoms. Possibilities? Difficulties breathing, or something is going on inside his mouth, or even something as simple as nausea. Cats can have heart problems that make it difficult to breath. These are mostly guesses. I sure would have him looked at tonight in case it is something serious such as breathing issues or something dealing with his mouth or throat. We do not go into emergency hours until 8pm, so if you can get there soon it is regular office exam of 48 dollars. Emergency hours, all prices are the same, there is just an extra 50 dollar fee for emergency hours before 11pm. A little more after 11pm. I hope he does ok for you.

Question Answered! Hi my dogs been o...

Hi my dogs been on for nausea pills for about 4 or 3 days he's doing very well should I take them off

It depends upon what he is on them for. If the situation was that he had vomiting or nausea and your vet put him on it, and he is now eating well, and has improved. Then, yes, I would go ahead and take him of the medication. Sometimes dogs are on this for complex diseases or issues. If that is the case then I would call and talk to your veterinarian first. But, for an issue like I first described- discontinue to medication and see how he does. You can always start them back if needed.

Question Answered! My Doberman was o...

My Doberman was on Apoquel for 7 days and the last couple of days she became very lethargic. Also she acted as if she hurt to get up and down...up and down stairs too. She was fine other than itching issues. We immediately stopped it but she is not getting better. Of course the vet thinks maybe arthritis. This dog played like a puppy and runs like a greyhound. She does not have arthritis. Any other complaints like this. She acts like it takes everything out of her to walk!

So sorry to hear about your doberman. I know how difficult it is to see our babies in pain. Apoquel is a fairly safe drug with very few side effects. So, I am worried that something serious is going on, and it is just a coincidence that these symptoms are occurring after she was taking Apoquel. I agree that it probably isn't just arthritis symptoms that we see in aging dogs and cats since these symptoms usually occur gradually. It is possible that her movements are a reflection of pain in an area other than joints. Or, possibly she just feels so bad that the effort of moving around makes her appear in pain. This is when it would be so nice if our patients could talk. I highly recommend having her checked out again and running blood work to rule out any issues with kidneys, liver, blood count, etc. Also, sometimes if time has progressed since the last exam it may be easier to detect with a physical exam the exact source of pain or discomfort. You may want to consider scheduling an appointment with Dr. Cindi Welch (if you are local). She has advanced training in internal medicine and is our go-to doctor for difficult or puzzling cases and 2nd opinions. If we can help you with any more information, please give us a call at 817-478-9238.

Question Answered! My cat does not o...

My cat does not open one eye,not easy to take to vet.

That's a tough situation. Cats certainly can be difficult to take to a vet. Unfortunately, eye problems can evolve into something serious, so if there is a way, I would try to take him/her in. A couple of possibilities could be using a crate. Or you can take a laundry basket, put the cat into it, and then cover the top of it. One thing that might be easier is to place them in a pillow case. The crate or some type of cage is the best way to transport them. You can also talk with your vet, he or she may prescribe a tranquilizer which may make it easier to transport them. I hope it works out and he or she gets care for the eye.

Can you give Benadryl with Richards organic pet calm?

I cannot locate any contraindications. You might contact Richards directly as they will be completely aware of any issues with their product.

Laura Roberts says...

I brought in a stray that had been hit by a car. The care was immediate and excellent. I was very impressed with the facility and quality of service. Thanks so much for the crate to transport him. It was very helpful!

Richard Jezek says...

High five kudos to Dr. Killman! She, with the help of the entire treating staff saved our TomTom’s life! Dr. Killman, Dr. Welch and Dr. Smith have renewed my faith in the caring veterinarian that we were looking for.

Brenda Rowland says...

Would like to thank the staff and doctors for the great care they gave our Tabby. The care given to Tabby was so kind and courteous. I am so grateful I chose I-20 Animal Medical Center.

Laura and Ricardo Grant & Nunook say...

Dr. Doherty and all of the vet techs that helped Nunook were so great. Words cannot convey how much we appreciate the great work everyone did for Nunook. He is our baby and he makes our family whole. Thank you for all that you do.

Marcia Marrow says...

Dr. Welch is amazing. She has a very calming nature, just what I needed when my Lhasa Apso was injured by a pit bull. She clearly explained everything in an understandable way. She also checked in with us (while we were there) to let us know what was going on. Thank you very much!

R. and B. Boone say...

The technical staff in the ICU is excellent and equally professional in providing the care, we feel, brought about Brandi’s recovery.

Don and Holly Michel say...

I20 is the greatest !! They gave us four extra years with our precious Yorkie, Cujo, and are helping us take care of our other precious Yorkie, Carrie, who is diabetic. They are deep in our hearts.

Alicia Patterson & Percy said...

I cannot thank you enough for everything the doctor and the rest of I-20 Animal Medical Center did to save my cat, Percy. Your care and compassion for my family during this emotional time was overwhelming.

Michelle & Greg Lacy say...

Greg and I could not be any more pleased with I20 Animal Medical Center for always being there for us when we need you most!

Yvonne Fiore says...

This was our first experience at I-20 Animal Medical Center. I was so impressed by Dr. Bloom, her real care, concern and understanding for my Cinnamon. My pets have been as loved as my children, thus, I expect excellent loving care and I and Cinnamon got this per Dr. Bloom and Jessica. Thank you!

Kristin Rush says...

The staff was wonderful and you can tell that they are real animal lovers. They were very thorough when checking out my dog and I didn’t feel at all like Jack was “just another dog”. They genuinely cared and explained everything very well. Loved them

Heather Matson says...

I have recommended I-20 to friends due to the compassionate and wonderful service we have received. Thank you for everything you have done for us. The doctors are wonderful as well as the techs and the rest of the staff. Thank you

Rhonda Holley says...

I have been to lots of vet clinics. Yours is the best in every way that I have ever seen! Thanks for restoring my faith in excellent veterinary care!

Matt Smoot says...

Dr. Bloom is wonderful! She put our mind at ease and alleviated all of our concerns about Spice’s surgery. We plan on using her for all of our pet’s needs in the future and will highly recommend her services to our friends and family! Thank you I-20 Animal Medical Center.

Staci Thomas says...

The service was amazing! I came in as a referral for a critical condition. I was extremely upset and concerned about my pet’s life. The staff quickly attended to us making efforts to stabilize Sebastian and provide me with a quiet and calm area. I really appreciated the service I received

Leah and Ron Bullard say...

We very much appreciate the skill and training you have and it was very evident in the procedures you performed on our dogs. Each of them had issues, some serious, and each of them are much better now, thanks to you and your staff.

Valerie Jordan says......

My family and I were so impressed by every contact we had with the staff. I have been to medical doctors for procedures and did not get such service. I have already called family members and recommended you guys, keep up the great work!

Maryann Livengood says....

The staff was extremely concerned and courteous- Dr. Stinson saved my cat's life! Also pricing extremely reasonable for a 24-hr care facility.

Paula Emmons says....

I-20 Animal Medical Center is amazing!! All the doctors, technicians and staff are the best. We had to take one of our dogs in for an emergency and everyone who helped us was great with our dog and with us. They encouraged us to call when we had to leave him and always answered and updated us on how he was doing through the nigh (even with many calls in a very short amount of time). The next morning Dr. Welch called and said that they had found something. She told us that Mikey was not going to make it and let us have hours to say goodbye. They answered all our questions and never once made us feel like we were imposing on her or her time. We have found a new clinic for all our dogs because of Dr. Welch and all the staff

Save A Mexican Mutt Rescue says...

I would like to thank the staff of I-20 for a great experience with one of our rescue dogs, Cuervo. Shortly after his rescue, we realized he had a broken canine tooth that would require a root canal. For sure we were not going to find a veterinary dentist in Mexico. So, I-20 Animal Medical Center came to the rescue! Dr. Bonnie Bloom and Dr. Ken Karger took great care of Cuervo upon our arrival. The staff at I-20 is always so friendly, professional, and socially in tune to rescue.

Jim and Kay Marshall say...

Excellent Care! I highly recommend you to our friends. Thanks to all the staff, especially Dr. Welch - we have a healthy dog once again. The love you and the girls showered on Rainey showed me how much you all love animals.

Janice Bunting with Tye says...

Our vet Dr. Litsey, referred us to you when Tye needed special boarding. We were very pleased with his care. We also really appreciated the staff's willingness to talk with us every time we called the ICU to check on him. It made it so much easier to be away from him. He came home a healthier and spunkier dog. Dr. Long was great with Tye and felt she took very good care to properly diagnose his condition and treatment.

Dave and Pamela Reitzel say….

“Cutie was a stray. When I took Cutie to I-20 Animal they were concerned for her health, and made arrangements to see her the next day. I-20 Animal set me at ease about Cutie after her exam. Now knowing that she is and was in good hands, I-20 Animal will be where I will take both my pets. VERY IMPRESSED!!.”

Nancy Schultz says…

“The doctor called the next day to check on Sophie and was genuinely interested in how she was doing. Very well done”

James Jacobs says...

“Huge thanks to the staff and doctors for the excellent care that Sasha received. The explanations about her care and pricing were first class. Thank you once again”

J. Headland says...

I cannot say enough how great Dr. Stinson and the staff were with Dirk and explaining the procedures. We have found a "new" place that I feel confident will take care of and actually care about Dirk. I have and will continue to tell our firends, family and co-workers how much we love I-20 Animal Medical Center.

LaTonya Thomas says...

"Shasha get's excited every time we exit the freeway to come to the I-20 Animal Clinic. Everyone there is so friendly and concerned about my pet's well being. Thank you all for such outstanding service."

J. Beed says...

"I just wanted to say thanks for your help yesterday! Mr. Fluffers had a great time getting his shots and I actually think he wanted to go back instead of driving home! :) Lauren and Kimberly were great! I'm sure Mr. Fluffers hopes to see them when he gets his booster in a few weeks. Thanks again!"
