Do I need to make an appointment to have my pet seen by the veterinarians?
We have implemented a same day (Call-in) appointment system Mon-Fri. Saturdays are reserved for existing clients and can be booked ahead of time. There are times when customer volume is so high that the wait can be long and admitting more patients may not be possible. We apologize for the inconvenience and will try to make arrangements for your pet(s) to receive the care they need.
Can I enter the clinic with my pet?
Starting 6/14, clients will have the option of accompanying their pet during certain visits. In accordance with CDC guidelines, we will be limiting occupancy to 1 Client per wellness exam, and 2 clients per euthanasia. Those with children or multiple family members will be seen CURBSIDE. Owners who choose to accompany their pet will check in for their appointment via TEXT. A technician will greet you at your car, and escort you to the exam room. All Technician services (nail trims, anal gland expression, suture removal etc.) and medication/food pick-ups will remain CURBSIDE at this time.
Do I have to wear a Mask inside?
We ask that all individuals entering the facility wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status. We appreciate your understanding!
How does your Curbside service work?
Once you have called to reserve a time slot, a customer care representative will give you an estimated time for your appointment. When you arrive at the clinic for your pets appointment, you can check in via Text or Call. A technician will greet you at your car and take down important information for your pet’s visit. Your pet is escorted into the clinic by a technician, and is attended to by one of our veterinarians. Once your pet’s exam has been completed, we will contact you by phone to discuss findings and options. When all treatments and services have been completed, you will be contacted by a customer care representative to be checked out. Your beloved pet will be returned to your vehicle along with any medications and receipt!

Will there be an exam fee with annual vaccinations or simple treatments such as a cortisone injection?
By the laws of the Texas State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners, a patient must be seen on a yearly basis in order to maintain a valid patient-client relationship. The Veterinarian is required by law to examine the animal and records prior to determining a course of treatment.

Do you see exotic pocket pets?
Yes, a few of our doctors gladly see small pocket pets such as ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters.
Why are multiple vaccine boosters necessary for my puppy/kitten?
Nursing puppies ingest antibodies from their mothers. These maternal antibodies help provide early protection against infectious diseases. However, they can also neutralize the immunity agents in vaccines. Maternal antibodies naturally decline during the first three to four months of life. And eventually disappear. For this reason, puppies/kittens should receive a series of vaccinations beginning about 6 weeks of age. This increases the likelihood of protection from vaccination as soon as maternal antibody levels have declined below protective levels.
