Is it possible to find a reputable vet when traveling?

Q: I do a lot of traveling for work and usually bring my dog with me. She's an 11-year-old Yorkie, and in pretty good health, but I worry about finding a vet while I'm away. Do you have any suggestions for locating one if you're in an unfamiliar city? I do not trust Yelp reviews.
