"Our dog Reagan got into a bottle of ibuprofen which led to kidney failure. It looked grim at first but once she was in the hands of Junaluska Animal Hospital, we immediately felt relief! They are kind and caring. We got right in! Reagan was on fluid therapy to flush out her kidneys and had to be in hospital for 5 days! The price of the stay is way under what we imagined. They were great every time we came to check on Reagan and answered the phone every time we called! They gave us the facts with optimism , but didn't give us false hope. They didn't charge anything unreasonable. And the most important thing is they reversed our baby's kidney disease! Her levels are normal now, and she is back to her crazy self! Thank you to everyone, especially Dr. Frankie, at Junaluska Animal Hospital! "

--Heidi Veek

"I just left this wonderful place with my baby, Nova!  I actually met Dr. Frankie back in January when my 9 week old English bulldog who had 2 heart defects was having trouble breathing.  Dr. Frankie did everything in his power to save her, but she didn't make it! Today my 5 month old English bulldog, Nova was acting strange and not wanting to lay down! My poor baby I has some hip issues and is going to need some extra care!  Once again Dr. Frankie was amazing as well as Nicola!! So very caring and helpful!  I can't thank these 2 enough for actually caring! "

They actually offered some assistance and we were able to get the care we needed and it didn't break the bank. This place cares about animals and the citizens of Haywood County. I'm thankful we have this resource available in our County. Thank you JAH for giving your heart to what you do! They allowed her pet to stay overnight until we could get to our vet in the morning.

"I recently brought my 4 month old golden retriever in to the Haywood Emergency clinic to see Dr. Frankie. She was limping, would not eat, had a fever and was very lethargic.  I was very worried but confident after talking to Dr. Frankie that she was in good hands. He took a lot of time to go over the test results and possible diagnosis and assured me that he and his staff would take good care of her while they provided "supportive care" and kept a watchful eye on her overnight.  The staff was very helpful and understanding each time I called to check on her.  Thanks to their excellent care, I was able to bring my Josie home the next evening and she is back to her old mischievous, goofy self!  I strongly recommend Haywood Emergency to anyone who has a pet in trouble! "
